    I'd like to know how this was done. I assume with a special lens and I'm certain with special software, but I don't know what. All my searching online has not come up with anything close to this. I like the use of the hotspots, and how the whole picture flows.

    Any ideas?

    I found that already (though under a different name "Bug Eye Digital"), and it's a decently cost effective idea if the software is worth a shit, but the one shot by Ferrari has full 180 degree vertical viewing, is full screen, and has those hot spots.

    Thanks for the idea though.

    I've seen something similar done for real estate stuff. The way I saw it done was with a bunch of stills and a special tripod head. They basically, took a shot, moved the camera in one direction and shot in a 360 degree movement. Then they went back to the start and did it in a vertical 360 degree movement.

    Then the shots are combined to create the smooth image. Its very specific as to the distances moved with each photo and the focal length of the lens so that everything could be combined properly.

    Not sure that is how this is done, but that is the way I've seen it done before

    Wow, that's really cool. You "might " could pull that off with 2 shots from an 8mm fisheye.

    I guess an 8mm would get close, with a little bit of a void at the absolute top and bottom. And I think I'd fire 3 shots to make sure I got a full 360 on the horizontal axis...
