    What do you Nikon Coolpix 800 or 950 owners use in Panotools for the
    lens correction setting?

    I don't know what settings to use.

  2. It depends on how much distortion you're trying to remove, and distortion varies
    with zoom setting. My settings for the 4500 are:
    Panorama Tools
    Correct, Radial Shift options with Radial option (only) ticked
    Polynomial Co-efficients
    col1 col2 col3 col4
    0 -0.008 0 1.008
    0 -0.008 0 1.008
    0 -0.008 0 1.008


    With the 775 I used -0.015 and 1.015 respectively at the wide-angle end, where
    barrel distortion was worst. From memory, the sum of col2 + col4 must equal
    1.000.
    www.dpreview.com 's camera reviews include estimates of the % distortion figure.
    I think the 775 had 1.5% distortion.

    Thanks. I used the 775 settings and it seems to fix the barrel
    distortion on the 800.
