Great video, and truly astonishing camera technology. Wish we'd had it when we were making "Cloudstreet." However, the fore/aft alignment of the camera has some noticeable distortion where the two 180 degree hemispherical views join. Since they are aligned with the longitudinal axis of the glider, they show up quite a bit. Perhaps it would be better to align the camera mount laterally so the fore/aft view is undisturbed. I think the side views, with changing terrain and few "fixed" objects in the frame, would make this minor distortion less obvious.

No complaints, I am still VERY impressed.

It's amazing how well they can hide the selfie stick and still have such
minimal distortion in the image.
