The virtual tour of the student accommodation, on my 360 page, shows some of the compromises of the genre. It also shows some of the compromises of photography too. https://www.yourartsetfree.com/#/360-photo-tours/
This particular tour of 360 images was done very quickly, using a Ricoh Theta V camera. It’s quite a clever device, about the shape and size of a small thick mobile phone, with a large lens on each of two opposite sides. One photo is taken via a smartphone app, and it’s software merges what it saw, into one 360 equirectangular image. I learned that I need to be quite careful where I stood when clicking the shutter - I wasn’t as hidden as I thought. You can see me trying to hide, in some of the images. I was better at hide and seek when I was a kid !
The image quality is rather poor, I think. There’s a lot of image noise in the jpg output. There are some tricks to improving matters, low iso and hdr mode predominantly, but not much. But as a first attempt, as a proof of technology, it was quick and easy and gave an example output.
What do you think ? Good enough for a web viewer ?
