- May 3, 2010Hi everyone!
I used to have a 0-360 mirror. It was fun to use, but didn't render high
quality panos. I even tried once to sell mirror panos, but the effort
invested to obtain a decent looking pano was almost the same with the one
shot mirror than using a 8mm fisheye with 4 shots.
I sold it cheap to a student that was learning to program virtual tours. I
don't miss it.
Best regards from the subtropical regions of M�xico
