Please do not forget to make it possible to render a lossless stabilized border less 2:1 Video, by importing the Gyro Meta data from the image file
and a possibility to shot circular Raw images for 90 degree external stritch
@jcasman Thank You we edited the text to make it more clear
possible to render a lossless stabilized border less 2:1 Video
90 degree external stitch
Note: 2 Shots = 4 images
Stitched in PTGui Pro
Crop and mask
or stitched in Auto Pano Giga
Note You can only play the index.html file in the Output folder offline in the Mozilla Firefox browser
A 90 degree external stitch gives better image quality because the unsharp areas in the Lens periphery are cropped away and disappears in the overlay in the stitch it is only the sky and ground that little blurry

Emphasis added by me. Has anyone used this yet? Pretty cool!
