Sony NEX Fisheye Sweep Panoramas

Fotosky came up with a new Sweep Panorama method for the Sony NEX cameras which gives the final image a fisheye effect. This is accomplished by swinging the NEX in an arc. The camera motion is somewhat like a pendulum. This takes some practice. Fisheye 3D Sweep Panoramas should also be possible. We would love to see some of your samples - email us.

We received an email from J.E. "Elendito" showing us the Loreo 3D Macro Lens in a Cap in action with the Sony NEX-5. You can see how well it does 3D in photo and video mode.
Here was our previous post on the Loreo 3D Lens Model 9005 used on the NEX.
