360° Panorama Timelapse Uses 6 GoPro Cameras to Take You Around the Neighborhood

By Hanssie on April 5th 2014

It took German photographer Jonas Ginter 2 years to perfect his little planet effect in the following timelapse video. Ginter was fascinated with creating a 360° world using panoramic photographs. The idea itself is relatively easy to do. Take numerous images, stitch them together and voila, a spherical panorama.


But Jonas wanted to breathe some life into his panoramas.  He’s tried many “funny things” to create the look he wanted, such as screwing his cameras on turntables and “strange mirror designs.” Eventually, he realized that to achieve the look he wanted, he needed to use many cameras. 6 GoPro cameras, to be exact. And a 3D printer to help support them all.

    This is one of the most amazing video and its not really difficult to film a similar video as long as you have 6 GoPros.
