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
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
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
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
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
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!
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
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.
It’s Tornado Season. Or it was, or it will be. I’m never quite sure when Tornado Season actually is. I just know that when it starts, it offers some pretty awesome videos, photos, and time-lapses of the storms as the make their way across the MidWest. This year though is different. It marks the beginning … Continued
I took my 360° camera out for a hike yesterday. The weather was nice, but it was very, very windy, so the audio wasn’t great except for wind noise.
