      Really interesting camera mount,
      does it work with the newest HD Hero2?


      Final panorama vertical FOV for 360 video? I try to calculate:

      1080p WIDE (vertical): 125.0
      but you need 6 cameras to get more than 360° horizontally (70.7 x 6 = 424.2) >>> pano video size: 5500x1920 (360x125)

      960p WIDE (vertical): 118.6 - (horizontal 93.9x5=469.5)

      >>> pano video size: 3680x1280 (360x118.6)

      Are the calculations corrects?

      Based on Peter Murphy's test:
      http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/PanoToolsNG/message/53211

      >>> There are two main video ratios used by the Gopro : 16:9 and 4:3

      >>> The 1080p (16:9) options are WIDE, MEDIUM and
      NARROW - all 1920*1080
      >>>The 960p (4:3) options are WIDE, MEDIUM and NARROW -
      all 1280*960

      >>> The widest horizontal coverage is at the 1080p WIDE
      setting: 125.0 degrees
      >>> The widest vertical coverage is at the 960p WIDE
      setting: 93.9 degrees

      >>> In detail (these are the settings I tested):
      >>> 1080p WIDE 125.0 * 70.7 degrees
      >>> 1080p MEDIUM 96.99 * 54.5 degrees
      >>> 960p WIDE 118.6 * 93.9 degrees
