Grenoble Zombie Walk 2015

The Rêv'Ailleurs hosted their 2015 edition Zombie Walk today, and I thought I'd try to go capture it in 360, hosting on round.me.  Took a quite bit of work to edit all of the panos, so I went for speed rather than accuracy with the zenith patching, but I think I did enough of a good job for this.

I used my OM-D E-M5 Mk 2 on a remote cable, with Rokinon / Samyang 7.5mm lens and a TomShot360 head on a Bushman Panoramic monolite pole.

I sold a pano!

OculusVR, developers of the Oculus Rift selected a group of 200 panoramas from 360Cities to help demonstrate the capabilities of Oculus VR. Images were chosen for their beauty and impressiveness when viewed on the Oculus device.

You can see Oculus CTO John Carmack talk briefly about 360Cities and the experience of viewing panoramas in VR at 36 minutes in.

This isn't the first time I've sold a pano, but I have no illusions of being able to leave my day job to sell panos as stock photography. The first was a gigapan of the Mer de Glace shot with a Gigapan robot, licensed to a geography textbook.

If you want to try your hand at it as well, 360Cities licensing isn't a bad place to start.

To see a few more of my panoramic images take a look at the pano page here, or my 360Cities profile.
