Surreal Joshua Tree

0

Last week it snowed in Joshua Tree National Park. That’s rare because it’s a desert, but it’s also pretty frekin awesome looking as attested by this 360 video: This was shot on the new GoPro Max. I remember that GoPro was trying to get into the 360 camera business for awhile but when I was … Continued

360 Photo IRL

0

https://i.imgur.com/6VyUF3E.mp4 While the above is apparently a painting, it’s still amazingly ace.  I like to take 360 photos and videos, and they are basically limited to the realm of the internetz and computer.  Thanks to the amazing people on that reddit thread, I am able to shell out hundreds of dollars for one of my … Continued

A 360° View of The F-35

0

This is a pretty good video that goes over some of the advanced features of the new fifth-generation fighter, the F-35: It’s a nice video, the beginning of it doesn’t really merit a 360° video, but it’s still cool.  There’s alot of 35,000 foot type view information given of the different systems and how they … Continued

Yosemite is Open 360

0

California is on fire. (What else is new).  However, this summer fires closed Yosemite Valley for an extended period of time.  The valley wasn’t at risk of the fire, rather the wind was pushing the smoke into the valley and causing very bad air quality.  Recently the park re-opened, reddit user cesar1894 shared this video … Continued

To the Edge of Space

0

Complete in full 360° glory!  Some crazy Russians (might not actually be Russians, but rather great Capitalists!) have attached a Samsung Gear 360 camera to the tail of a MiG as it flew into the stratosphere at speeds approaching Mach 2.  I will say, traveling at supersonic speeds is one of my all time dreams, … Continued

360 Drone Racing

0

More like a practice run if you ask me.  I’ve flown drones like this before, they are not easy to control, I know I would crash it trying to make those sharp turns.  One thing I think should be kept out of these drone videos though is the audio.  I don’t want, or need to … Continued

360° Oscar

0

This Short Film, Pearl, by Patrick Osborne is nominated for an Academy Award for Short Film at the 2017 Academy Awards.  The short itself isn’t bad, what makes it unique is that it’s shot in 360°.  Unfortunately, in my opinion, it doesn’t make great use of the 360° format.  Most of the action that happens is though … Continued

360° DSLR

0

You know that I love 360° video and photo.  I think it’s the next big thing in the world of photography.  Up until now the only way to get really high quality content was to attach multiple cameras together in rigs and stitch the resulting footage after the fact.  That’s all changing now.  Sphere is … Continued

360° Cuyahoga

0

Here’s a 360° Cuyahoga Valley National Park.  It’s not much, I did only spend half a day there, remember.  Still, it’s cool to watch and play around in.  I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of that camera!

Katmai

We’re at the last of my National Park’s for the Alaska trip, Katmai.  Famous for it’s bears and Brooks Falls.  However, we didn’t go to Brooks Falls though, we spent the time in the backcountry of the park looking for bears up Funnel Creek.  Unfortunately it was late in the year for that particular salmon … Continued
