Coriolistic Anachronisms

   

Times Squared

Here’s the result of some playtime with the Canon 7D. It’s a 360°x180° panorama of Times Square, played in Flash. Of course there’s much room for improvement – I need to refine my makeshift pano-head and locate the lens’ nodal point* more precisely, but the modest result is fun and immersive. Make sure to click on the Full Screen button at the lower right of the preview below, and once in the real thing, you can click and drag the image in any direction, including up and down… Press Esc to exit Full Screen.

To view virtual tour properly, Flash Player 9.0.28 or later version is needed.Please download the latest version of Flash Player and install it on your computer.

Note: By referring to the nodal point, I seem to be subscribing to a popular panoramic photography misconception; the actual no-parallax point of a lens would be its entrance pupil, not the nodal point.

    Ok, so do 360 degrees count as 360 pictures?

    It’s like having a personalised Google-earth! Imagine if you’d had this in Lesotho!
    And I’m with Marie on the one-a-day, since I am unlikely to ever get to the Big Apple.
