Alaska in 360°

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 of easy to produce 360 video footage of these storms.  The above 2 videos show tornado’s up close in one, and driving by one in the other.

360° Sam’s Point

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.

Everest 360

Knife Edge

Mammut sponsored this trip up to the summit of Mount Everest with a pair of 360 camera rigs on two of the hikers.  This is the first time the trip up Everest has been documented in this way.  One rig took a photo every 30 seconds, while the other was on continuous recording.

The picture above is from the South Summit – at 28,700ft above sea level. Here, you can look around it if you’re really interested.

There’s no 360 video of it yet, at least not that I see, but here’s the Mammut promotional video:

Blue Angels 360° Video

I’m pretty sure I haven’t posted this before, but forgive me if I have, it’s just too good not to share a 2nd time.

This video was taken at the Great Georgia Airshow this past October for USA Today.  They set up a special 360° video rig in the cockpit of the jet in the slot position of the diamond formation.  The video is 8 minutes long, not bad really.  It works on a computer, but it’s way cooler if you watch it from a smartphone and move the phone around as you watch it for a truly immersive experience.
