One of the challenges that comes with using a 360 degree camera is figuring out interesting ways to present the image. In the clip below, I used Ricoh’s THETA+ iPhone app to “animate” my way around a single 360 picture that I took at Miami beach on Saturday.

360 “Spinny” Photos
My latest photography indulgence is a 360 camera. Mine is the Richoh THETA V, and it lets you take an image of everything around you in the single push of a button.
I like to call these “spinny” photos because about half of my Facebook crew claims motion sickness when I post them. What do you think?
I created a Virtual Tour
Our Driftwood, Texas home is on the market so that we can move to Miami for my new Head of HR job. Even though I didn’t have time to do the real estate photos for our listing, I decided to buy a 360 degree camera and try my hand at creating a virtual tour. Creating the virtual tour was actually a faster process than photographing the home with a regular camera, particularly since there was very little “post processing” (editing). The only complication was that I didn’t realize before taking all of the pictures the first time that Zillow requires you to take them through their mobile App while it is connected to the camera. Luckily, my Ricoh Theta V camera was one of the very few that Zillow supports!
