    Hello guys, some time ago, I’ve started doing 360 photohraphy and I’ve noticed that on my images, subject in the center of the image (in focus) is displayed normally, while the same subject, while being on the edge of the image is being distorted. Examples included in the links.

    I also noticed that on some other websites and 360 photographies, this isn’t the case, or the distortion isn’t as extreme as in mine. Zooming the image does affect this, but I don’t think that zooming alone is the fix. Examples included in the links.

    Now my question here is, how do I get rid of the edge distortion and what is the cause of that? Is it the lens that I’m using? Is it the preview program itself? Is it the stitching program?

    The distortion you notice is due to the field of view which is very large when zoomed out and rather samll when zoomed in. The effect is the same as with wide angle lenses and normal and telephoto lenses. There is nothing one can do about it unless one would find a way to change the laws of physics.
