How this Virtual Tour was made:

The equipment used to perform virtual tour are the following:

  • Nikon D810 DSLR Camera
  • Lens Sigma 8 mm Fisheye
  • Nodal Ninja NN4 Tripod Head
  • Manfrotto 190 Carbon Fiber Tripod
  • Remote Switch

The software processing of the image was

  • Lightroom to process RAW files
  • PTGui for stitching images
  • Photoshop general and local settings
  • PanoTour Pro for generating virtual tour
In many public places, for security reasons, the use of tripods is prohibited; airports, stadiums, museums, malls, are some of them. This is the reason why, in this occasion, with the objective of not missing the opportunity to make virtual reality photos, I used the “Technique of philopod tone variation”, in which you are not really using a tripod, and you can be as fast as possible to rotate the camera around the point of no parallax. The trick is that you install a tied rope to the front part of the lens and at the other end of the rope
a coin or a fishing lead to make some weight down, which will help maintain a reference and this way to retain the camera in the same place while you turn around to the take the pictures. Four pictures are to be taken, one in each direction and there should be a slight up and down tone variation between shots. Hang the coin or the fishing lead over the same point on the ground. Don’t look at the camera, instead, look at the coin so it maintains over the same spot on the ground. Take the first picture, then turn 90 degrees and take the second picture, this same way turning 90 degrees take the third and fourth picture.
With this you obtain a totally spherical panorama taken without a tripod.
