  How to make sphere panorams


The first step in making sphere panorams is the decision which equipment to use taking them. I choosed the Samsung Gear 360 (version 2016), which is a standalone solution combining in one small ball cage two fisheye optics (front and rear) projecting on two CMOS sensors ( 3888px x 3888px - ca. 15 MPx each), in which way is taken one complete 360 degrees full sphere every time you press the release button.

Like most modern digital cameras the gear 360 offers the making of videos too, but then to have something like a remote control and screen you better use it together with one of the recommended smart phones, and so it can't be called a standalone any more. To me it is, because I'm not interested in making movies.

This combination of a smart phone and the gear 360 is a convenient way too for those people who do intend with their panorams nothing else but to post them immediately in their favourite social media account: The gear-360-app not only transfers the picture data via wifi to the smartphone but will transform this data to the equirectangular format which is something like the standard to be understood e.g. by facebook. During this transformation process the image size is reduced enormously, but the result is all what is needed by fb.

By the way: It's just 2 years, since facebook presented to it's users the possibility of uploading panorams, in a very convenient way without any manipulations of their web browser - not just another plugin! In that manner panorams found more public interest. And so it was just a question of time until there was presented a plugin-free solution to embed panos in your own website. To me this happened with Pannellum, the open panoramaviewer, which is used in this website
