Day Twenty-Six of ORCA in Switzerland – Playing With 360 Video

Day Twenty-Six of ORCA in Switzerland – Playing With 360 Video

It’s Day 26 and today I was playing with 360 video. Specifically I went for a walk in the woods and placed the camera ahead of me to provide people with the opportunity to look around. Doing this is a risky strategy during the pandemic because if you cross paths with anyone there is nowhere to avoid them. I quickly went back to open space and retreated for home. One runner passed too close. It’s a cruel paradox of pandemics…

Filming events in 360

Filming events in 360

We have all seen events covered by photographers and camera operators but how many events have we seen covered with 360 degree videos?

In some cases it was the opportunity to play with a new format and in other cases it was the opportunity for proof of concept. The thing to remember about 360 videos is that you’re placing the camera…

In some cases we record time-lapses with video cameras and at other times we set an interval timer to take pictures every so many seconds. In this post you will be watching clouds form as…

Rain and the Gear 360

Rain and the Gear 360

Rain and the Gear 360 are well suited to the weather we are currently subjected to in Switzerland. For the past month and a half we have had rain almost every single day. As a result of this it has limited the number of opportunities to go out and get 360 footage. 360 camera rigs are not designed for rain. Most 360 rigs involve at least six non weatherproof cameras and rigs that are designed for dry rather than wet…

The Immersive Video Experience

The Immersive Video Experience

  I was at the World Virtual Reality Forum in Crans Montana this weekend as a volunteer. During this time I was able to try many of the demonstrations and get a real feel for the potential of 360° and immersive videos. I was also able to listen to people comment on what they appreciated about the experiences and what they did not like. Vulkane in 3D und 360 One of my favourite experiences was Vulkane in 3D und 360. I…
