Panohero-Mini-Maxi Product Family
Panohero-Mini-Maxi is a family of panoramic heads for GoPro Hero action cameras – built from a set of compatible parts. Heads are produced on demand by 3D-printing market places like Shapeways. Products are available as sets of connected parts. Individual parts can be acquired too – as replacement parts or for switching to another camera.
Panohero-H9B, Panohero-Mini-H8B and all models of Panohero-Maxi support a customary 7x12mm bubble level.
The least recent model is Panohero-H9B for GoPro Hero 9 Black. This combi generates equirectangular panoramas with a height of 8901 pixels and an overall size of 158 megapixels.

Free Stitching Service
KeepEyeOnBall provides a free stitching service for images shot with Panohero. This service makes the creation of virtual tours for real estate especially easy. 100 virtual tours are automatically free for Panohero users. There is no limit for the number of panoramas per tour. Register, upload your shots, wait for the stitching to complete and link your panoramas to a tour as shown in this video. Learn more from the nice manual – it is sketch-based and text-free.
