Horrible Horror – Sochi 2014 virtual tour

«РИА Новости» just published a 360 video tour to Sochi 2014 Olympic objects.

360 video is quite new technology – allow you to see action around you – it is normally done when there is some interesting movement around you, or operator moves in some interesting route. Wingsuit jump f.ex.

360 video quality is usually  mediocre – because it normally filmed with 6 GoPro cameras – it have lower dynamic range, bad colors, lower resolution etc. it benefit only from action around.
Static DSLR panoramas are much better, because it is done with DSLR with all benefits of RAW processing.

I was so surprised – they use low quality 360 videos instead of simple spherical panoramas almost everywhere … in places where there are no action at all and the camera is not moving :)

It is so stupid..  For this project it cost more money, take more time, more difficult to make And result!:  gives you lower quality! :)

Here I made a simple comparison between my last DSLR static  panorama from mountains and their panorama from videocameras:

And there is no gigapixels  at all…

Looks like some russian stupid official was demanding ONLY the latest technology :)

2013.10.24 ARTICLE:
Recently I faced strange phenomenon – some panoramic photographers started doing HDR from 5, 7 or even 9 brackets, stating that it gives better image quality than standard HDR from 3 images. Continue reading
