How to make a rectangular object perfectly square using the panotools:
In this example the frame is straight, but somehow the photo looks distorted.
The most common Panotools projections are Equirectangular to make interactive 360x180 panoramas and Rectilinear to fix distortions of photos. But what about the others?
With a small Field of View (FoV) the difference isn't that obvious, but with a large Field of View things change quite a bit.
Imagine yourself standing in front of a large object and try to take a photo. Using a wide angle lens will get you visible distortions once you go above 50 degrees (100 degrees FoV) because of the Rectilinear projection.
Here is where the other projections come into place to map large Field of View objects to a print.
This is an example of an extreme Field of View, standing right in front a Ferris wheel taking several pictures using a 24mm lens:
