In this weeks episode we sit down and talk with Zach Calhoon. Zach is the co-founder of CloudPano. CloudPano is a new software for creating and displaying your 360º images into an interactive virtual tour. Brian had a chance to try out the software and the biggest features he enjoyed were the clean user-interface, ease of use and that the tours are VR headset ready. Brian bought a VR headset on Amazon for just under $65 and it works perfectly with CloudPano.
It’s so easy now to do 360º images and if you do want to make it as easy as possible, you can pick up a Ricoh Theta for $350 and you have your 360º ready to go in under 2 minutes. This is a great add-on service for your real estate photography clients with a very minimal investment.
You can see a sample tour Brian made with CloudPano for his nursing home client by clicking here.
Zach was also kind enough to offer all of our listeners a special promotion. To take advantage of the promotion, use the following link:
this is Peter Wagner from Germany. I have a question concerning the episode number 59: You said your fotos are stiched by a company. Could you tell me which one?
Peter, I use a company called Gothru.co
Great stuff to think about! Brian curious what lens you are using on your camera for this and the range of focal lengths that would be unacceptable for this type of 360 shooting as opposed to an all in one 360 camera like the Insta 360 or Theta V. Thanks!
Michael, I use my Canon Mark IV along with a Sigma 8mm fisheye lens. I tried the Ricoh Theta S originally but wasn’t happy with the results, although I might be swayed with the new Z coming out!!
Which Nodal Ninja head are you using to shoot panos with your Canon?
I use the R10.
