Does this unit allow for a true 360 degree shooting? It's got to be more like 350 degree or something. Usually for true 360 you need to take the camera off and move the tripod to get the ground underneath. Do all models allow for this? Does the software stitch this together as well, or will you need different software? Finally, What type of file is exported? Quicktime? Can you embed on your own website, or do you have to use their service to host the stitched images?
I believe you are referring to 3D shooting, which this device doesn't look like it supports.
I don't think he's talking about 3D shooting, unless you are using a term which isn't normally used in panoramic photography. I believe what he's asking about is can you use this to shoot a 360x180 panorama... I.e. can it shoot the zenith and how far down can it point to shoot the nadir?
And yes, like he said - you always have to fudge the nadir shot unless you want the tripod in it.
can it do 360° in the horizontal axis?
can it point high enough for the zenith?
how far down towards the ground can it point to get close to the nadir?
As long as you can take the shots, stitching together a spherical panorama should be doable. (Perhaps not using the gigapan-supplied software, however, but it should be doable quite easily using other software)
