In order to get a 3D photo or 360 image, it used to take days and sometimes multiple cameras. Now with these new, rotating cameras, it’s done within moments. What’s even better is the cameras are interactive. People are now able to interact with your photos, receiving a full 360-degree view and experience of your still images. Utilizing two fisheye lenses to capture the full view, the two images are then seamlessly stitched together, giving you the all-around view.
That’s right- the world is literally just a click away! ALLie Cam, a 360 degree still image and video camera (https://allie.camera), allows users to scroll around the image as well as up and down receiving an almost live experience. On smartphones, you can navigate these images with just the brush of a finger. The best part about this whole thing is that these cameras cost no more than $500. Amazing and affordable. Crazy, right?
Kodak makes a range of 360 degree cameras like the pictured 4K model (https://kodakpixpro.com/Americas/cameras/), that are highly portable and rugged. This technology is paving the way, and making it’s mark on popular culture. This technology is currently being encouraged by outlets such as news media to provide a more complete and compelling storytelling experience. It has the potential to become the new standard technology for raw footage events.
