    For us, the biggy is a 9 day DIY pre-cruise land tour attached to a 7 day Alaska Radiance cruise in late Spring.

    A simple and fast free tool is IrfanView https://www.irfanview.com/
    Make sure to get the save as web plug in.
    Most any editing software will do it - PhotoShop, Affinity Photo, etc.

    Thanks. You guys are a hoot. My go to has always been the 18-200 with my APC bodies. I'm kind of a wide guy and when I shot film, 24 was the norm. On a whim I took the fish-eye on our first cruise (el cheapo manual brand x).

    I've always had no issues with the distortion. I most likely will not carry to Alaska since my bag might need other glass. I have found that the 10-24 at 10 does nearly as well and is Nikon glass.

    For Alaska it will boil down to how much will fit in the bag. I want something longer than the 18-200 to shoot from glacier and whale tours. I'm not sure it makes sense to carry the full frame body & 28-300 when I might instead carry the 150-600 and two APC bodies. Again one bag.
    I had never even considered stitching frames together to get wider. I don't consider myself much of a post processor. So that leaves the 8mm out for sure. I'm a bit worried about having a blank spot if the bag carries 2 APC bodies, 10-24, 150-600. Then I might need to add a 18-70 or the 18-200 to fill in that. Add all the other crap (chargers, batteries, memory cards, SB-400 flash, a filter or two) and the backpack is full.

    Thanks all that replied. I'll most likely do Voom since I want to use my iPad for email and and Joy has a FB fix.

    kind of thought that but had to ask. So, no Eagles flying around with cell antennae. Pretty sure I'll go with a Voom drink package

    Just an update. Got a simple app for the Moto X called Simple GPS. It is just precisely what I was looking for. Was free, gives number of Sat locked, Lat and Long to 7 decimal places, altitude and speed if moving and also a compass. It's very simple, fast and my phone has a hell of a lot more CPU power than the 20 year old Trimble I was thinking of carrying on board.
