    My question is does removing the fish eye with SW degrade the photo somehow?

    I have been able to open photos in Prodrenalin, however have never tried to save them. I'm at work so I can't test. But I have used the lens profile correction in lightroom cs5 and photoshop cs5.

    Here are a before and after set using the FC200 lens profile in Photoshop.
    You'll notice you lose a little around the edges.

    I use an iOS program called SKRWT
    To correct the fisheye effect of the phantom vision camera,
    I use "action" and dial to 20. (It doesn't make much sense without the program. )

    It does introduce some error and needs some cropping (the tool is included, as well as several other perspective correction tools). The support is great in answering questions. And there is a good online tutorial.

    It's quick and easy and costs next to nothing ($1.99)
    I recommend it.

    Gimp works great for me and you can't beat the price.

    Gimp is good and does a good job. The only thing I don't like is that each photo needs to be loaded and corrected, one at a time. But for free... can't complain too much.

    Go in to filters+distorts+lens distortion - check preview pane on and start adjusting edge to about -40 and adjust from there

    I tend to go a little less than -50. Usually right around -43 to -46. Watch the outer edges of the photos as this is what tends to curve upward first.
