Tamaggo 360-Imager Panoramic Camera Captures Images All Around You – GizmoCrave

It sports a 2-inch LCD touchscreen, which is used to perform the operations. A mini USB cable is used to charge the Li-polymer battery and also to connect with the PC.

It comes with Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity that allow easy syncing with phone and photo sharing on email and social networks instantaneously.

The egg shaped camera can capture the action taking place within the entire 360-degree imaging environment, unlike the standard stitching mode that needs multiple snapshots taken over a few seconds.

It captures images in four automatic orientations: Sky 360°, Ground 360°, horizontal panoramic and vertical panoramic. The ImmerVision technology enables panomorph 360-degree optics in the camera. It is compatible with mobile phones, computers, netbooks and tablets. It has an integrated stand to shoot remote images. It measures 3.62 x 2.19 x 2.40 inches in dimensions and weighs only 7 ounce.

The Canadian company says that the photography can be replaced as the Tamaggraphy since it is different from the traditional camera. It gives a new experience in taking pictures and performing the operations after capturing. The Tamaggo user can capture a 360-degree immersive image with one click by holding upright it.

The Tamaggo 360-imager will reach the stores in the second quarter of 2012 for a price of $200.

iPhone 4S secret panorama camera mode discovered

iPod touch - My PDA.

This is the first look at the secret wide photo mode for the iPhone 4S and iPad camera, hidden in Apple’s iOS 5 software.

Tinkerers who have unlocked Apple’s software — known as jailbreaking — discovered the panorama camera feature in iOS 5, the operating system for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, 9to5Mac reports.

A panoramic photo is a wide photo, wider than the camera lens can handle in one go. Instead, you sweep the phone across the scene in one motion and the camera captures multiple images, then stitches those pictures together into one widescreen image.

To snap a wide picture, it seems you’ll choose the panorama option from the camera menu, then simply tap the camera button and move your phone left to right, as directed by onscreen guidelines.

The movement and multiple images also mean a camera can create a 3D panorama. Many cameras and phones let you do just that, even if the camera isn’t a 3D model and doesn’t have a 3D screen. Apple hasn’t shown any interest in 3D up to this point, unlike Sony, Panasonic and others, so it’s unlikely the iPhone will do 3D panoramic shots. 3D is just the sort of gimmick Apple likes to stay away from.

If you have a jailbroken iPhone, you can use the panorama mode by downloading Firebreak from outlaw app store Cydia.

If you’re of a more law-abiding bent, you can take panoramic shots using an app like AutoStitch Panorama. For more camera apps check out our favourite photography apps for the iPhone, and let us know what you think in the comments, over on our Facebook page, or even on our shiny new Google+ page.

360cities.net Unveils New World Record-Sized Photo

Prague, Czech Republic, March 28, 2011 – A newly published photo of the ancient Philosophical
Library at Strahov Monastery takes the crown as the largest interior photo in the world. The
image of Strahov Philosophical Library, at 360cities.net/library, has a total resolution of 40
gigapixels, or 40 billion pixels.
Shot by photographer Jeffrey Martin over a period of five days, the image reveals the highestresolution
view of any interior space that has ever been captured. In the image, thousands of
priceless, ancient books are visible, in detail down to the worn leather on the spines; the fresco
on the ceiling of the library is captured down to the brush strokes and cracks in the plaster. In
short, this photo captures the details of room in a way that has never been done before.
Previous attempts at world record gigapixels include Martin’s 80-gigapixel image of London,
a 26-gigapixel image of Paris, a 70-gigapixel image of Budapest, a 26-gigapixel image of
Dresden, and Martin’s previous record holder from 2009, an 18-gigapixel spherical image of
Prague. This new Strahov 40 gigapixel image, if printed at normal photographic resolution,
would be 23 meters long and 12 meters tall.
Martin, a panoramic photographer and the Founder of 360Cities.net, created the Strahov 40
gigapixel image from 2947 high-resolution individual photos. These photos were then stitched
together into one single image using a powerful workstation PC.

The World’s Largest 360-degree Sports Photo

While the football fans among you were following Manchester City and Stoke City battling it out for this year’s FA Cup yesterday at Wembley Stadium in London, 360 Cities founder Jeff Martin was pitch-side capturing a 20-gigapixel photo of the crowd – the largest-yet 360-degree photo of a sports event.

The image has now been launched on http://wembley360.wembleystadium.com/ – less than 24 hours after shooting! People viewing the image can tag themselves or their friends if they were in the 90,000-strong audience. Our talented team also built the website and created the tagging application. There are a lot of famous faces in the crowd. Stay tuned as the number of face-tags starts building up. [update - 1200 tags added in the first hour!]

This event is a major accomplishment for 360 Cities. Working with Wembley for several weeks in advance, the shoot was meticulously planned and rehearsed. There were only 90 minutes of shooting time to work with. By contrast, our earlier gigapixel images of, for example, Prague, London and the Strahov Library were shot over days. Jeff was  present for the FA Cup semi-final in May to do a dry-run. Wembley’s excellent agency Dare Digital organized everything with skill and creativity. Read all about how we did it on the How We Did It page.
