Can someone elaborate if/how the camera model has changed with the new render engine?

Do external cameras still work the way they did in 2015.x? For instance Liberty3Dīs UberCam set of custom cameras?

I for one rely heavily on the (yet dated) Spherical Camera that comes with UberCam, as it allows to produce FullDome Images (aka Dome Master) for use in planetarium projections directly inside Layout with an instant visual feedback using vpr.
In case you might ask: No, its not covered by a vr-camera: the now very trendy vr-cameras tend to produce equirectangular images as opposed to a circular equidistant one http://pineappleware.com/sub/domemaster.html that you will get out of a fish eye lens (minus the distortation, that is..).

My Environment Baking Camera still works. I just loaded it in LW 2018.0

Even inside of VPR. That looks cool.
