Hi!

I'm new to photography, and want to start doing virtual tour photography for real estate and businesses with my nikon d3500. The sensor is ASP-C and I'm wondering if this is sufficient enough for high resolution images. (Dude on YT says only do this with full frame).

I know I need the panorama mount , stand, fish eye lens.

What else am I overlooking do you think?

Did Mr. Dude on YT explain why only Full-Frame? Here's another Mr. Dude on YT that's happy with using a fisheye on an m4/3 camera for his real estate interiors. Note that he goes through a de-fishing step during post-processing that crops the photo and kind of defeats the purpose of using a fisheye in the first place.

Fisheye lenses produce odd-looking photos. I think most real estate photographers just use rectilinear ultra-wide lenses instead to avoid a lot of framing guesses and post-processing.
