360° Panorama

I recently purchased the 8mm f/3.5 fisheye from Samyang in order to do create 360°  panoramic HDRI's for my VFX work and take sweet hip-hop style images;
I don't have a nodal head yet so I've been experimenting with hand held LDR 360°  panoramas.  So far I've managed to create one of my bedroom using only 5 exposures, 4 portrait exposures tilted down slightly at 90° intervals on the Y axis and a zenith (straight up) exposure.  I combined them with the wonderful PTgui which allows you to convert your resulting LatLong image into other fun contortions like so;
Here is a single frame still I took of my producer John Fairfield, doesn't he look cool!?
