The Kodak Pixpro team has been well ahead of the curve for panorama and 360° video. The Orbit 360 is their first All-in-One camera solution for truly spherical photos and videos. It does feature an interesting design that I haven’t played with before. It’s the most flexible action camera I’ve ever used, but does that justify the price tag?
Analog is making a comeback. Kodak is bringing back Ektachrome film for a new generation of Super 8 cameras. The Super 8 Camera features some new tricks like audio input and a handy flip out LCD. We’re way more excited for a film camera than we should be…
You can now upload 360 degree video to Youtube! This will be amazing for Google Cardboard and VR headsets, but even viewing it on a phone or in a browser, it’s a really immersive way to interact with content!
Here’s a quick tour of my completely trashed office shot on the Kodak Pixpro SP360! Make sure to view this in Google Chrome or through the Android Youtube App, otherwise you’ll just see a regular wide angle video.
We’re on the edge of a whole new generation of consumer produced immersive and interactive content. After playing with cameras like the Kodak PixPro SP360, which can shoot panorama video, we’ll soon be sharing immersive experiences that put people in the middle of a memory.
Activated on Youtube, when watching special panoramic videos through the chrome browser you’ll be able to “look around” a scene with side mounted controls. When viewed through the Android app, your phone’s accelerometer will allow you to tilt your phone screen around to see whats happening all around you.
This is a really exciting move, as it positions Youtube as an early resource for user generated 360 degree and virtual reality content. You can see an example video from MY OFFICE below.
I was a really big fan of Kodak’s Pixpro SP1 Action Camera, and JK Imaging is adding to the line up with a new action camera capable of shooting panoramic video! Let’s take a look at a little adventure cam which captures a full 360 degree view of your exploits!
