Here is a link to a sample panorama shot with the Samyang 8mm Fisheye.

It is 4x rotational shots at -15 degrees and 1x zenith shot at +6o degrees.
The camera used was a Canon 10D 6.3mp DSLR, so nothing modern or high tech here!
Great budget solution. :D

Sample is displayed with Tourweaver 6.50 Beta
Showing both internal and 3rd party slideshow features using Microsoft stock images.

Regards, Smooth 8-)

The more I read about this lens, the more interesting it gets. The price/quality ratio is great, making it a good choice in an entry level panorama setup.

The projection is quite different from other fisheye lenses, being very close to "stereographic", which apparently is a desirable feature for panoramas, because of the lower radial compression.

Hello it is sample virtual tour created by samyang 8 mm lens.
