C’mon guys, writing code, Factoring in latency? We are talking high school – not MIT. Let’s assume that this project can be done without a graduate degree in electrical engineering.

It’s a photostitch!!! We have all done photostitch panoramas. It does not matter if the cameras fire simultaneously. The only code you need is a photostitching program and you don’t have to write it. In fact this project can be done much more easily with a single camera. But since we have 20 cameras here is what you do. Set all of the lenses on the same zoom and set them all on manual with the same shutter speed. Calculate the aperture by taking multiple pictures using a single camera. Take pictures at all points on the azimuth and note the aperture for each picture Use the average aperture for all of those shots and set all of the mounted cameras to that aperture. Every camera needs to have the same settings!!!!

Use the website http://www.tawbaware.com to calculate the angular field of view for the specific focal length you are using and set the cameras ( mounted on tripods) so they have overlapping fields of view. Take the shots.

Now you have 20 pictures. Use the photostitching software on Photoshop or another program to stitch the photos together. Process to taste!!!! Get your ‘A’.

Josha, you are scaring the s* t out of the poor kid (LOL)
