The Insta360 One RS 1-Inch 360 Edition (here) is a game-changer in the world of low light photography. With its advanced technology, this camera is capable of capturing stunning images even in the most challenging lighting conditions. It’s not new on the scene, but I wanted to test it in challenging conditions. In this blog post, I’ll explain how this camera helped me shoot the northern lights in 360.
In this article, I am planning to discuss the way I use my DJI Mini 2, a cheap drone that many people dismiss as being a toy for beginners in order to get photos and animations that stand out. While spreading my belief that with great knowledge you can overcome the limitations of your gear & budget.
I don’t know if this ever happens to someone else, but sometimes I leave home thinking that I would go in one place and end up in an entirely different one. This is what happened to me on the 5’th of March. The universe was calling, I responded and ended up on a hill near Brasov, Romania looking at one of the most amazing sunsets I have ever witnessed.
There are a lot of choices out there these when it comes to 360° cameras, and while many of them are very good, the really good ones capable of shooting super high resolution are extremely expensive. But all is not lost. You can still get very high resolution 360° my simply stitching multiple shots from a regular camera together. Even something like a GoPro action camera.
In this video from My Tech Fun, we see how we can use a 3D printed panoramic mount (also designed by My Tech Fun – and free to download) in order to shoot 12K 360° images with an action camera. While GoPro does have their own 360° camera, this will offer a lot more resolution and detail when zooming through the image on the desktop.
If you want to capture 360-degree photos or videos without getting a dedicated 360-degree camera, PanoClip offers you a solution. This $50 lens is attached to your iPhone. It lets front and rear camera join forces to shoot and stitch 360-degree content.
In January 2015, the Space Needle in Seattle had a 360 webcam installed. Over the past three years, the camera has been taking a 360 panorama of the city every ten minutes. Google engineer Ricardo Martin Brualla decided to turn the three-years worth of images into a timelapse of the city. As a result, you can see the seasons changing and the city growing before your eyes, in under four minutes. It’s captivating to watch, and Brualla shares some details about how he did it.
We’ve been reporting on GoPro’s advance into the virtual reality market in the past. First with their acquisition of Kolor, the 360 content editing software and then again when the popular action camera manufacturer announced they were working on a drone and a a 6 six camera spherical mount which was geared towards the VR/AR crowd.
It certainly looks like they’re making some exciting progress. Today, GoPro released of a pretty sweet 360 panoramic video featuring champion FMX rider, Ronnie Renner dune jumping in Idaho, to show off what they’re capable off thanks to those aforementioned announcements.
