Believe It Or Not -- My Ultra Wide Angle

My widest lens is my Pentax DA 15mm f/4.0 but when I go traveling light, I use my mirror-less gear with Sony and currently I simply don't have an ultra wide angle lens that I can count on. Instead, I am using a tiny sensor with an action camera for the occasional need of ultra wide angle. I am not proud of it as it has distortions all over the edges. I have an old version of LR 5.7 on my macbook and pc and the only lens profile closest to Sony Action Cam AS100VR is the Sigma ultra wide or the GoPro Hero 3; both did a worse job in correction and I have not figured out the right manual correction. I have asked Justin to share the profile if he manages to find one. Unfortunately, he seldom shoots still photo with the video gadget. Mine is the older copy gotten in 2015 when I got more trips on skiing and I found the purchase right for my money at the time comparing to Hero3 as it works with a remote control worn as a watch to Rec/Stop on video or take Interval pictures continuously in 2 sec intervals. And the OSS with image stabilization was absent in Gopro Hero3. I have used Sony Action Cam quite a bit but it has no tuning of anything and there is no manual adjustment to the 170 degree shooting. I wish it has an adjustment for a narrower view and with less distortion. I don't quite know how the 170 degree translates to focal length in 35mm term. It is wider than any of my lens in possession.

And with some editings, I find it usable
