Hey Dome Dudes
Just wondering what would be the best Fish Eye Lens for a Digital SLR for Full Dome?
I probably be using a Panasonic GH1 with 37mm converter or Canon 7D.
I'm based in London, I'd probably buy a cheaper one for experimenting but rent a good one for a final shoot.
Any ideas of where is good to rent and buy lens in London or online?
Help is much appreciated!

Perhaps it's a little thing, but for me it's not: Shared words are the basis of shared understanding and a culture. In our case, we can't seem to agree on our spelling of fulldome/full-dome/full dome after more than ten years. (Or we're lousy spellers... :)
Toward creating shared usage - or at least some peer-pressure and spelling hints- I set up another spelling poll on the Yahoo dist list:… Continue

It's become an annual tradition -- the Loch Ness Productions survey of the state of fulldome around the world. We've compiled some interesting statistics, from analysis of the data in the LNP Dome Theater Compendium. And we've conducted a painstaking review of "what's on" at every theater's Web sites.
Please check out our "2010 State of the Dome Address" in the Reference Library section of the Loch Ness Productions Web site. Here's the direct URL:… Continue

Yesterday evening, the Institute of American Indian Arts' Digital Dome facility hit a major milestone by rotating their new fulldome facility a full 90-degrees (from full horizontal to full vertical). The 24" dome is designed for a variety of innovative applications and viewpoints. In addition to the 90-degree rotation, the dome can also raise and lower a full 18' and may very well be the first of its kind to offer this degree of articulation in the world.
The IAIA has… Continue

Has anybody tried the ponyfulldome software?
I have requested the team to add a function to import spherical images directly instead of just cubic faces. It works really well. The next step is import video panoramas and convert that to dome master format (fisheye).

If you haven't gotten the news (and how could you when there's a communicator like me in the mix???) we're not doing a DomeFest this year. Instead, we're working to build more support and a greater program for 2011 when we'll reconvene in September.
For DF11, we'll continue curating the Juried Show and 'Making of' programs with the same philosophy of creating programs addressing production techniques, story/content innovation,… Continue
