Panono Camera for interior RE photos?

Anybody used a Panono (external link) camera for RE photos?

I work with a nationwide home builder and their marketing group purchased one, didn't have time to deal with it, and asked me if I'd like to use it on their houses. It's a pretty nifty piece of kit, but I'm a bit disappointed with the lack of editing options.

I was hoping I could batch edit the individual JPEGs (no Raw available as of yet) for white balance, exposure, highlights, etc and then rebuild them back into a stitched Panono. But, it seems that Panono only allows you to go from a UPF (Unstitched Panono File) to 36 JPEG files, but not the other way around. Just wondering if anybody else has used one and had any luck with editing photos.

Here's a quick (external link) one I did earlier today in case anybody wanted to see what they are capable of. This was me just doing some testing, put it on my dining room table. This is the "HDR" mode and actually isn't that bad. I chose to manually set exposure for one to insure that I got ISO100, so this is 1/15 second exposure I believe. But still, I'd love to get these individual JPEGs into LR and do some editing before the Panono is all stitched up... :(

Pano is not something I do every day but on occasion I use the DIY method to get a shot (pardon the pun) and get decent results. A few years ago I discovered the tips by B&H Photo which you can find at https://www.bhphotovid​eo.com ...ake-panoramic-photographs (external link). I found many very worthwhile. I'd add that for many indoor shots I've used a sturdy Lazy Susan turntable with a table top tripod. With some crude markings on the Lazy Susan and some experimentation you can get a nice sequence for stitching and minimize the overlap.

Thanks for the reply, the Panono camera isn't exactly a Panoramic camera though. It has 36 individual cameras inside a ball and you get a full 360 x 360 sphere of photos. Rather than just a 360 cylinder, if that makes any sense. I haven't found many (any?) software that is capable of stitching the full sphere together, most only do panoramics in a single axis (up/down or left/right). Panono, obviously, has the software to stitch the photos but their editing tools are lacking.

Just another geeky toy. I'll stick to my fisheye and pano head, thanks.
