This panorama of cliffs in Zante is created from just 4 photos, using a Sigma 8mm lens on a 'crop frame' sensor DSLR camera - for example a Canon 550D. The photos have been stitched together. The resulting image has been published as a 'Flash' and 'HTML5' file for viewing online and on phones and tablets using the Pano2VR software. The Pano2VR software also generated the 'mirror ball' effect tripod cap cover image, hiding the area of the photographs where the panorama rotator and tripod legs were visible.
