Pretty cool shot there, and by the looks of it from the strap on the photographers shoulder, it was shot with a Canon body.

Anyone know how a shot like this is possible. I mean I can do panoramas and stitch them with PTGui or similar, but how do a shot like this, with so many moving 'targets'?

I'm sure I saw a video camera that did this. It had a bunch of different cameras pointing our from a sphere so that the images all overlaped, the images were then combined in software and you got a 360 degree view. I guess you could do the same thing with a still camera and a bunch of lenses...

I think it was being used in some motor racing somewhere....

I was thinking the same thing. Some kind of rig with several cameras. I assume Google uses a similar setup for their stuff, but it would be interesting to see an actual rig.

I'd bet it was done with one of the 360 degree lens, I'm looking at getting one for commercial work.

Do you have any information on this? A link or something? :-)

From what I could tell, Google used cars with four large P&S's mounted on a pole above them for their Street View shots. I remember seeing them around town, and asking other people what was up with the cars with the cameras on top, and someone said it was Google, then Street View came out. I don't know how they got the coverage they did with only four cameras, which seemed to be fixed in place, but as far as I can tell, that's what their rig was.

Thanks! I'll be seriously considering one of these when next paycheck arrives. :)

Or maybe I won't. :confused:

I was looking closer at that rig and this unit will not be able to take a photo like the one in the link in my first post. Alltho it can take a full 360, the circlular reflection device on top will block the view upwards, and as you can see on the first link the sky and view over the camera is fully intact. You can see the the complete roof above the stage. The only "black spot" is the little black circle in the bottom. Other than that it's a complete ball or sphere.

Here's another photo from the same photographer, taken at the Roskilde music festival in Denmark.

WARNING! There is nudity here! Photo is from the nude camp at the festival.

I think I'll drop him an email and ask him what he's using. :D

He uses an 8mm fisheye and shoots five photos. One in each 90 degree direction horizontally and one upwards. He is working on a detailed documentation of the entire process.

No, there's a few Nikons in there.

I'd like to see this. If he's taking more than one photo, his skills are fantastic. I don't see any seams. I only see two flaws in the photo. One is on the left side of the stage where a box on stage has a blur that runs down the photo. the other is in the photographer's hands where the void is the camera itself. That's just fantastic!

I'm going to have to inspect this shot some more.

No, wait, here we go...

  • To the right of the singers. At the front of the stage. There are two clear water bottles. The color of the stage changes just below the water bottles.
  • Go down from the water bottles and look at the foot of the guy wearing the plaid shirt. His foot is what you would call a "Double-Wide".
  • The stage does not line up on stage left. Look at the red stripe. There is a blur and it goes from on-stage to below the stage.
  • Look down at the photographer. Go behind him and to the left. Counting from the blonde with the big glasses, go two girls to the left. Girl with black hair has a little finger growing out of her elbow.
  • Above her is a woman with two faces.
  • Above her is a black rectangle with no discernable origin.
  • Keep going up through the blurred and cut faces and you'll see that the trees have a halo.
  • Behind the photographer to the right. To the right of the girl with the purple hair. That girl has a duplicated hand.
  • Above her is a black girl with a white girl's head growing out of her forehead.
  • Zig-Zag above her and you'll see some more artifacts.


The stitching get's lost in the trees. Trees are a great place to hide the stitching.

All-in-all this is actually a fantastic bit of stitchery and presentation.
