I would like to develop a camera type that projects an image at the inside
of a hemispherical surface (as opposed to a flat surface as with
perspective camera). The purpose is to generate wide-angle views (up to
180deg, theoretically). Yes, the widest views would be curvilinear; but up
to ~120deg views should look pretty good. I would like to know: (1) if
someone has already developed such a camera; and (2) if someone can offer a
pointer to a description of the math to do this?

Thank you.
