PANORAMIC LENS DATABASE

How to read the lens database
The lens database contains several useful pieces of information, such as the field of view (FOV) and the number of pictures required for a 360° panorama.
Please take into account the crop factor of your camera, because the correct number of pictures depends on it. A full-frame camera, such as the Canon 5D or the Nikon D700, has a crop factor of 1x and requires less pictures per panorama than an 1.5x or 1.6x crop factor camera, when using the same lens.
N stands for nadir, the image you must take straight down. This is, of course, optional.
Z stands for the zenith. Not all shooting scenarios require a zenith image, since the upper row, or even a single row of images, can completely cover the zenith area.
