How to read the lens database

Canon EF-S 10-22mmThe 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.
