Peter - I shoot a Nikon D300. The BZ panos were shot with a 18-200mm lens (27-300). At the time I did not have my 10.5mm fisheye (15.75) yet, which is what I use now for all my panos (6 shots as opposed to 34). I use a Nodal Ninja
pano head, PTgui and pano2vr software with a Manfrotto ball head tripod.
