    Just uploaded a quick and dirty how to video for correcting the fisheye distortion in Phantom 2 Vision stills for those of use who run on linux systems (or those who prefer not to use a commercial package like Photoshop) using the freely available GIMP software.

    It's a quick look at which filter to use, some suggested values, how the filter works and the limitations with this particular filter and how it crops the image.

    Aimed at newbies to photo manipulation who can't/don't want to use Photoshop from this newbie to photo manipulation!

    Pull Up, I've been a pro still photographer for 20+ years and I hate using photoshop for wide angle correction. I use a utility called PT Lens. It is both a plug in for Aperture and Lightroom and is stand alone. Really is easy to use and is only $25.

    Looks great, thanks - sadly no linux support for the likes of me, though.
