Default Spherical MA2 Pano

I am still trying various features of my Mavic Air 2 drone. One of those is the ability to shoot a 360º “spherical” panorama. While it is a bit gimmicky, the effect is interesting, and I can see an occasional use for it.

Start by taking the multi-frame exposure; The linked mp4 screen capture shows that.

That delivers a stitched 360º linear pano JPEG with the processing done by the DJI software.

To render the linear pano as a spherical pano, open in Photoshop:
1: Flip the image horizontally, then flip the image vertically.
2: Go to *Filter-Distort-Polar Coordinates* select *Rectangular to Polar*
3: Adjust canvas size, and use Free Transform to tweak the roundness of the sphere to reach this result:

Looks nice. What's also good is that the camera copes well with
the dynamic range.
