Alaska in 360°

0

Remember the 360° camera I got earlier this summer.  Well, naturally I brought it with me to Alaska.  I took lots of 360° photos, and lots of video.  I even set it up to record a time-lapse of kayaking and hiking.  Unfortunately, Youtube highly compresses the 360 video.  Hopefully they’ll fix that little issue soon.
