Mike Pasini and Stephanie Boozer defeat distortion with Andromeda Software's LensDoc...
Geometric distortion (barrel and pincushion distortion) is a perpetual problem in consumer-level digicam lenses. Barrel distortion (the edges of the image bulging outward) in wide angle shots is often particularly pronounced. There's now a great solution to this, in the form of a software package from Andromeda Software, called LensDoc. IR all-around writer-gal Stephanie Boozer and Newsletter Editor Mike Pasini put their heads together and came up with a great review of the product. Read the review for the details (or if you're not sure what this barrel distortion thing is all about - there's a great example there).
