Photo Sphere V's 360 degree view




Correct titles


To overcome confusion where need to be clear about definitions 




Panorama Photos


we all know what they are, long broad flat





360 Degree (Cylindrical)

the ability for the camera / device to rotate the view.. the raw photo looks a little odd but when viewed in the correct device / app you will see a rotation




Photo sphere

better known as Spherical, taking it to the next level, 360 in every angle, sideways and up and down

with smartphone / tables you can 

1. rotate the screen with your finger but better 
2. turn the actual device but better
3. wear google cardboard (goggles) and experience 3D virtual reality 

The photos appear (output) in various styles, all will rotate in 360 degree (in every angle (sphere)) but the results are very different 
you need the correct app (desktop or mobile) to view make them rotate


1. Equiretangualar

this is typically the image that will rotate 360 degree in every angke









2. Mirror Ball

these are fun








3. Little Planet

these are also cool pics 











4. Rectilinar












Smartphone apps


to create a image without other devices

how do they work
they take multiple photos and stitch them together, this means a little bit of downtime 10 seconds or a minute to snap the pics and when it's moving subjects you will get ghost overlays, thus the ultimate is a 360 camera to catch it all in 1 shot but that's cost V's convenience


Free stuff

There are many FREE apps that create either 360 degree photos, but some are cylindrical and others are full spheres 
out of many tested, these are the best as at late 2015

in 2018 we tested more and created a dedicated page called 360 apps


Best apps 


1. DMD Dermanda Panorama app - Iphone and Android link

can be used to create a spherical photo without other devices (slow and multi pics required)
free host site



Photos: cylindrical only (not sphere) very fast with on screen help (2 icons must line up and auto click)
typically will be about 4 or 5 photo auto clicks as you rotate


free cloud storage and share to social media

can output the photos to video .. amazing

can display photo spheres in it's app and free cloud so 
use this app for 360 degree and use the google sphere for spheres, save to camera roll and view in this app



Heads up... 
Because you have to take many photos, most often you will find DMD the best coz it's quick, however the phone must be vertical
if you want non vertical or full sphere then use google app below








Google Photo sphere app

Photos: Full Sphere - auto, you have to turn rotate about 3 times.. stopping each time to take about 6 photos in each rotation
it takes a little practice but once you get a handle on it's then wow


The benefits of Google (you need a gmail a/c)
1. take free sphere photos
2. upload directly to google maps
3. search google maps to view spheres as well as street view all in 1




 Explore world landmarks, discover natural wonders and step inside locations such as museums, arenas, restaurants and small businesses with Google Street View.

 Also create photo spheres to add your own Street View experiences. Start with your phone’s camera or add a one–shot spherical camera (like the RICOH THETA S) for easy 360º photography.  

  Then, you can publish to Google Maps to share your photo spheres with the world.

note: you will need a gmail a/c  and once you upload you can immerse yourself into the photo with google cardboard (see below)






Iphone


There are several other apps search Street view in the apps store 


Android

video how to take a 360 with an app - link

YouTube Video




Street walk the world

using the google street view app, you can navigate to anywhere in the world and view in 360 degree or in street view and move around ... awesome 

whats; better is you should put on the google cardboard (goggles) and feel like you are actually there.  Once you try this you will be hooked
