Re: shooting 8 around w/10.5? or 6?
I also use the D2X/10.5 combo and find that 6 around gives plenty of
overlap. That's with PTGui, but I can't imagine PTMac would really be
any different in this regard.
Maybe if I were doing a handheld or aerial pano I'd use 8 around, but
that would be mainly to compensate for lack of precision in the rotating.
