IPIX 360-DEGREE PHOTO SYSTEM VERSION 2.0 - 1998. 
IPIX, a branch of Internet Picture Corporation, sold photography kits designed to produce 360-degree photographs by stitching together two 180-degree photographs.  The kits used current consumer digital cameras at that time such as those sold by Olympus and Nikon.  The kits included a fisheye lens and a rotator bracket for mounting on tripods so that the second photo could be taken exactly 180 degrees from the first.  The kits included iPIX  software used to stitch the images together.  Various kits with differing equipment were marketed.  In 1998, these included the starter kit at $695, the personal kit at $1,695 and the professional kit at $2,195. They also sold the Olympus D-450 Zoom kit for $850.  The photo above shows contents of two iPIX sets purchased on eBay, one with a hard case and one with a soft case, one featuring the Olympus D-340R and the other the Olympus D-360L.  The small case on the upper left contains the 360-degree rotator and a fisheye lens.  A second fisheye lens and three lens adapters for other Olympus camera models are shown in front of D-340R and D-360L.  The photo on the upper right is from the iPIX manual and shows an Olympus D-340R attached to the rotator on a tripod.  iPIX filed for bankruptcy in July of 2006.  Page 72, Infoworld, 22 March 1999.  We believe we were the first digital camera history web site to provide a photo and information concerning the iPIX system.
