    360 Panorama's

    I need to create a 360 pano of the inside of a motorhome. Other than a Canon IXUS II digital camera and a tripod I have no other equipment.

    I presume that I need to use a particular kind of lens in order to capture the images I require in such a small space?

    Also I am unsure as what software to use in order to stitch these images together.

    Please can someone give me some advice about how I should go about create a nice crisp pano within this area space? I am aware that I may need to either purchase or hire a new camera.

    This is an example of what I am trying to achieve (360 at bottom of page):-

    There are special programs for this such as Realviz's Sticher. But If you have a bit of skill in photoshop you can do a good job, without having to purchase additional software (assuming you have PShop )

    Few tuts.

    The easiest way is just to rotate the camera about the fixed tripod. But in your case, in a small space, without a super-wideangle lens you are not going to get a good enough shot of the room. You will need to comprimise by moving your tripod to maximise your angle of view. (see pic)

    This is going to be tricky! Any tips on how I can get this to work without too much error? I have one chance to get this right.

    If I was going to purchase a new digital camera to use on both this job and for other work which would be mainly used for the web, which digital camera would you suggest? My budget is 150 - 250.

    Thanks
