This Week in VR Photography: 15-29 September 2015

I was going to show Airpano for some friends but after trying it I had to give up. The settings for flash are screwed up and the performance very bad. Sergey Semenov please check. I am on a new imac 27. I also installed last flash to be sure that this is not the problem. See More

What’s your favorite rig for video 360′s? Anything decent for $1,000 or less? Those GoPro mount rigs seem a little steep considering they don’t include the cameras…

I spent the weekend at a fly-in on a friend’s private airfield. Had a great time! Took this panorama and a bunch of other photos you can see here (also a larger version that you can zoom and pan around in):http://galleries.aaronpriestphoto.com/…/Grignons-2015-Flyin/1 row, 22 columns, 467 megapixels, Nikon D810, Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 @ 200mm, f/11, ISO 250, 1/400 shutter speed. Stitched and blended with PTGui.

I have a question regarding Google Trusted photographers – do they set their own prices for panoramas or are they somehow “prescribed” by Google? I was just wondering because I tried several times to join the program but never really got a response (except the automated one – we received you request and are looking into it.) So I thought perhaps there are too many in the area (unlikely in North Wales but possible). There are some – and on one of the web sites I saw the offer … See More
Anyone used this software? Had a client’s client ask for images in Skybox format. Skybox format is simply cube faces, but a branding name perhaps to confuse buyers. I don’t really see anything here that would justify the high price or could not be done without this. Am I wrong?

Hello, even if I do 360° photography since years, I’m a total newcomer to 360° video. As I’m in testing phase, I have to start on low budget. I’d like to know if it’s possible to start with a config of 6 Xiaomi Yi Cam + the rig showed here : http://m.gearbest.com/action-cameras-sport-d…/pp_230439.html or do you think it’s a wast of time ?

I like this. Do you think I should buy it?

Editors’ picks of the week are back

Hi guys! It was a tremendous week – at least for our community photographers, who uploaded some real gems to 360Cities. Let’s have a look at the most wonderful pieces we saw last week.

 

Chapada dos Veadeiros – Favorito Grass by Marcio Cabral (click the picture to open the pano)

 

Marcio Cabral is one of the top photographers in our community, and he proved it with this pano from Brazil. We absolutely love the way Marcio combined the Milky way on a starry sky, together with the colourful grass all around. Perfect job!

 

Atlantic Princess Wreck by Marcio Cabral (click the picture to open the pano)

 

Two panos in one weekly summary? That’s what we call a perfect week for Marcio Cabral. This time, he dove deep into the Carribean to find the wreck of the Atlantic Princess, a ship used mostly for touristic cruises – not anymore, obviously. Right now, it serves mostly as a great place for scuba divers. Or scuba panoramic photographers…?

 

Night view of Sunken Garden in Sunpu-jo Castle park by bibouroku tabito (click the picture to open the pano)

 

Time to move to Japan, thanks to this wonderful piece by Bibouroku Tabito. This is the Sunken garden of Sunpu castle in Shizuoka. As well as Marcio Cabral, the night served well for the purpose of taking this picture, so the colourful flowers all around can really stand out. Beautiful!

 

Pender Harbour, Sunshine Coast, BC, Canada by Jorgen Bjerke (click the picture to open the pano)

 

You can be sure you’ll find at least one aerial pano in our summary every week. This time it’s Joergen Bjerke’s panoramic picture of the Pender harbour in BC, Canada. What we like about this one, is that it’s REALLY high – and it gives you an image of how beautiful the nature over there really is. Time for a visit, maybe?

 

Pozzo di San Patrizio (St. Patrick well) by Marco Gioia  (click the picture to open the pano)

 

This one is simply awesome. Marco stood almost at the very bottom of this ancient well to give you an idea of how deep it really is – just open the pano and have a look around, especially above you. Another cool this is that it was built almost five centuries ago, and it still looks perfect. Just like Marco’s pano.

That’s it for this week! Make sure you check back next time and be sure you’ll find some more panoramic beauty again! See you!

New Editors’ picks of the week

Here we are with our weekly round-up of the coolest Editors’ picks our community photographers uploaded last week. Take your time and check these panos out, it’s worth it!

 

Kananaskis Village, Alberta, Canada by Four Sides Media (click the picture to open the pano)

This week we’re starting with two aerial panos. The first one, made by Four Sides Media, is from Canada – more specifically, Kananaskis Village. Just like it’s written in the description: Snowy peaks and evergreen forests, this is Canada. Nothing to add. Beautiful pano!

 

Glashuetten – 1 – aerial view by Christoph Hoffmann (click the picture to open the pano)

For the second aerial panoramic picture, we need to move all the way across continents to Europe. Christoph made this pano in Germany, in a little village of Glashuetten. We don’t see snowy peaks this time, but the forests are there, as well as a wonderful sunset. Brilliant!

 

Milan Cathedral “Duomo di Milano” – On the roof by Евгений Орлов (click the picture to open the pano)

Time for some architecture! The cathedral in Milan is one of the most significant historical monuments in Italy, so if you’re a pano photographer, making a picture there is a must! Here’s a tip for you – open the pano, check out the map (in the top right corner) and look how many panos you can see in the area!

 

Dead Vlei, Namibia 3 by Martin Broomfield (click the picture to open the pano)

See, when making a pano, you don’t need to rely on historical monuments, colourful sunsets or a stunning nature. A panoramic photo truly is a piece of art. Can you imagine this one, by Martin Broomfield, hanging on the wall of your living room?

 

S.Antioco island, Porto Sciusciau #3 by Paolo e Mauro Mattiello (click the picture to open the pano)

The weather’s getting a bit colder lately, so let’s have a look at a pano which will make you feel a bit warmer for a while. Paolo and Mauro made this one in Sardinia, it features cliffs with a crystal clear water, boats and – of course – a wonderful weather. Is there anyone who wouldn’t like to be there right now?

 

Check out other Editors’ picks that are pretty cool as well:

Bell turret in Rostov Veliky by Ivan Savin (click the picture to open the pano)

Courtyards at the Haus Schwarzenberg by Ludwig (click the picture to open the pano)

Pérouges Village Médiéval Rue des Rondes 2927 by kik  (click the picture to open the pano)

 

That’s it for this week! But be sure that we’ll be back next Monday with more! See you!

Editors’ Picks of the week

Hi guys! We’re back with the best panos of the week! With the second edition of our blog post, we bring you the top panos our community photographers uploaded last week.

 

‘Taba – Nuweiba Road Milkway Panorama’ by Mohamed Attef (click the picture to open the pano)

 

This week we’re starting by Mohamed Attef’s magnificent night pano – the Milky way looks unbelieveable from the Nuweiba road in Egypt. The pano itself is wonderful, though – just look at the colours of the night sky: Red, yellow, blue, green, pink, purple and many others. You don’t get to see that very often! Great job, Mohamed!

 

‘Spirocones’ by Marcio Cabral (click the picture to open the pano)

 

Marcio’s pano is as colourful as Mohamed’s one, even though it was taken on a place, which is usually dark and scary. This pano, however, is far from that. The place is called Sao Mateus, and it is one of the largest cave complexes in Brasil. Would you like to take a walk in the water, just like the guys on the picture?

 

‘Salzmünde – Tempel’ by Ballgott 360° (click the picture to open the pano)

 

This pano gives us chills! You can find this strange temple in Germany – in the middle of a forest, all covered with moss and leaves. Are those tombsones on the ground? What is this place? How scary would it be to be there at night?

 

‚Munich Rathaus‘ by Flavio Di Mattia (click the picture to open the pano)

 

We’re still in Germany, but we moved to one of its largest cities. If you ever get to visit Munich make sure you visit the Marienplatz and the Town hall, it’s worth it. If you’re not a hardcore fan of architecture, you might appreciate a number of beer gardens in the area:) In the meantime, check out Flavio’s pano to get the idea of what it looks like over there – and maybe choose your beer garden for your visit.

 

‚Sterne über Burg Liechtenstein‘ by Matthias Kunze (click the picture to open the pano)

 

Not really far from Munich is the place where Matthias took this pano – and this is wher it gets scary again (it will not be this creepy next time, we promise). The Liechtenstein castle looms majestically on the pano, even though – as Matthias points out in the description – it is not the original one, built in the 12th century. Even though – cool pano!

 

‘The Lobby of Lanyang Museum, Yilan’ by ZZ (click the picture to open the pano)

 

Usually you go to museums to see the exhibitions inside. But sometimes, the museum itself is a piece of art – such as this one. This is Lanyang Museum in Toucheng, Taiwan. It looks awesome from outside, but it gets even better when you step inside the lobby. Feeling dizzy?

 

Time to wrap up –that’s all for this week! Make sure you check our blog again next Monday for more panoramic beauty, made by the 360Cities photographers. See you soon!

Editors’ picks of the week are here!

Photographers participating in our 360Cities Panoramic World have been publishing thousands of magnificent panos, and we understand it might get a bit difficult to find the ones you appreciate the most. We simply want to make sure you find them easily. To help you, we are now presenting  them to you in a single weekly blog post – Editors’ Picks of the week!

Let’s have a look at the Editors’ Picks from last week:

 

“Norway Preikestolen” by Flavio Di Mattio (click the picture to see the pano)

 

Everyone knows this place. But on all pictures, Preikestolen (or Pulpit rock, if you wish) is not as crowded as on Flavio Di Mattia’s pano.

On the other hand, we understand why all the people on the cliff wanted to visit the place themselves. The view of Norwegian fjords is absolutely stunning and if the weather’s nice, “a couple” of other tourists is not a problem, right? Just be careful and don’t slip!

 

 

“Grand Place Brussels” by Akos Hajdu (click the picture to see the pano)

 

Time to move from Norway to Belgium! Akos Hajdu made this lovely pano at the Grand Place square in Brussels. The city Town hall dominates the pano, as well as other majestic buldings nearby, including the Breadhouse (they don’t make a bread there anymore, it’s the city museum now).

Another thing on the pano caught my eye, though. Look at the people sitting on the ground. With the lovely surroundings there, this looks like a great place to chill in a warm summer evening, doesn’t it?

 

 

“Cold Pano For Hot Weather” by Bane Obradović (click the picture to see the pano)

 

If you live in Europe, we’re pretty sure those hot weeks are still in your memory. Bane Obradović uploaded this pano from Serbia to cool down you a little bit!

Nice cabin in the mountains, covered with snow, with a nice warm light in front of the main door, inviting you inside after your long day outside in the snow. Looks fantastic!

 

 

“Congreso de la Nación de la República Argentina” by Martin Velasco Bertolotto (click the picture to see the pano)

 

This is Martin Velasco Bertolotto’s picture from the Argentine National Congress.

It’s semi-circular shape is pretty cool for a pano – and we absolutely love the reflection on the table below the point of view. The place can get pretty busy on working days for sure, but the pano of an empty congress hall makes it look quiet and peacefull. Nice job, Martin!

 

 

“Elbe-Saale-Mündung” by Hendrik Henschel (click the picture to see the pano)

 

Hendrik Henschel made this wonderful aerial pano in a place where two German rivers – Elbe and Saale – meet. We love the atmosphere, nice and quiet, especially with the lovely sunset. And look at the tiny beaches on the right side of the Elbe!

 

As we said earlier – there’s much more uploaded to 360Cities every week. Be sure that we’ll be back with more panoramic beauty next Monday, so stay tuned! In the meantime, check out some other cool panos from last week:

 

“Festas do Povo de Campo Maior 2015 (3/4)” by Luis Filipe Azevedo (click the picture to see the pano)

 

“Latvian Academy of Sciences in Riga, Latvia” by Vil Muhametshin (click the picture to see the pano)

 

“Туманный лес” by Dmitriy Polukeev (click the picture to see the pano)

 

“Luxor & Karnak: King Seti I – Burial Chamber (Detail)” by Salma ElDardiry (click the picture to see the pano)

 

“ЦПКиО им. Маяковского” by Anton Fadeev (click the picture to see the pano)

 

See you next week!
