The D7-180-XRV is an addition to the line of Scallop 180 degree field of view cameras. All Scallop cameras utilize distributed imaging technology, where a panoramic field of view is covered using a number of miniature camera modules. Each camera module has less than 1% optical distortion. The output of all of the sensors is combined in the camera to produce a continuous 180 degree horizontal field of view image. The advantage of this approach is that the camera output does not need to be dewarped, and so is able to capture details without losing sharpness.
