Planet Avila ::360 Pano:: by rdevill Planet Avila ::360 Pano:: by rdevill
Avila, Spain

Above you can see the little planet version of a 360VR panorama. To view the panorama in a 360VR viewer click [link] (Outgoing link)

BTW I made this pano from hand (I didn't have the Nodal Ninja at that time) so don't kill me for small stitch errors ;)

I love this concept. I tried it last year, and again just a little while ago.

Thanks! :hug: I love mini planets too!

Checked out your mini planets! Nice concept with the stars around!

As an advice for the future: mini planets look way better if they are made out of full spherical panoramas. That way the ground doesn't get pinched! Also: using a panoramic head (like nodal ninja) will help avoiding stitch errors.

A "Nodal Ninja"?

I most cases I either free hand shot the images, or in the case of the last image, I used a monopod.

Thank you again. I will keep the full spherical idea in mind.

Nodal Ninja: BTW I have a Nodal Nija 5 for sale It's a panoramic head for your tripod. It keeps the no parallax point (NPP) stable, so that you won't get parallax errors while stitching. Shooting panos from hand is okay if all of the objects on the picture are far, but it's still important to try to rotate the camera around the NPP.

Good luck!

I have seen these. The name eluded me.

Most of the images I take are far away, however this looks like and interesting tool to have. Oddly enough, I use a mono-pod now a lot for these images. But I want to have the camera on its side. I thought about it for a while, an adapted a head from one tripod, onto the mono-pod, allowing the camera to be nearly 90degrees from the norm. The only real "test" was a few weeks ago:

However as you pointed out the rotation of the images would not have been around the No-Parallax Point would have been off, because the head was set the wrong way, so there would be some sort of error in a few of the images during the stitch process.

Is your unit on ebay?

Thanks again,

Nope! I plan to put it on e-bay later though! Although since you live in the US it might be better for you to order one from Nodal Ninja directly. Mine is in Europe, it's brand new (won it, and never used) so it would be more expensive to buy that from me and ship it back to the US. than to buy a new one :D

Thanks again.

This reminds me of James and the Giant Peach if you ever saw it, when they roll over the fence in the beginning to make like a walkway around the peach...

Yeah. One awesome photo.

Never seen the movie :(

As for me: it reminds me of the kings planet in "The little prince". It's an awesome book! :)
