Hi Christoph,

I'm cross-posting my reply to the HDRI mailing list, where this probably belongs.

I hired a programmer friend of mine to port Photosphere to Windows and Linux a few years ago, but she has since had two children and is a busy mom. I'm not sure where that project stands, to be honest. I know it is possible to compile the command-line tool hdrgen under Windows with some effort, but it hasn't been done for many a year.

The Canon 5D camera with Sigma fisheye is a good choice, and Sigma has a 180-degree fisheye that works on APS sensors now as well, so you could get a Nikon D90 (or whatever) and use that as a lower-cost alternative.

Cheers,
-Greg

Dear colleagues:

I am planning to introduce HDR imagery in my daylighting class in the fall using Photosphere. My understanding is that I will need a CCD camera, a wide-angle/fisheye lense and a luminance meter to calibrate the camera. Could anybody recommend any specific products that I should buy? Has anybody compiled Photosphere under Windows (sorry GregJ).

Thanks a lot,

Christoph

Hi Christoph,

We have a canon EOS 40D combined with sigma 4.5 mm F2.8 circular fisheye
(the sigma fisheye Greg is talking about). It's an intermediate-cost
solution.
We use DSLR Remote pro for the capture of images and hdrgen under linux for
the combination into hdr format.

Hi Christoph,

I have a 5D and Sigma 180 fisheye. I would be happy to bring them by
sometime if you are interested in checking them out.

Actually, if we are on the topic of porting applications a port of the
canoncap application would be pretty nice....

Best,

-Jack
