Dear Martina,

I have had good results using Altostorm's Rectilinear Panorama Pro to correct for distortions in photographs.

Hi all,

I have a problem with some uw photos I took while following up a long-term
field experiment where measuring is crucial. May anyone help?

I took the pics using the photo mode of my Sony XR550 camcorder, which
features a slight wide-angle lens. I?ve done this several times in the past
and the camera automatically corrects the associated distortion when a
specific photo format is selected. Very good and smooth. For reasons I don?t
know, however, this time the usual camera setting was overturned. Of course
I realised it too late... I was horrified at finding out that all my pics
are stretched in the four corners and the straight rulers are so gently

Does anyone know about a software that may correct this, essentially as the
camera does when the appropriate setting is selected?
I seem to remember reading a paper where something similar was used but
can?t really find it again. Any other advice (besides getting back in the
water and repeat the session, of course) is welcome!
