I am not quite sure when my involvement for spherical media began. During art school I remember making sketches of holographics projectors and mused upon what types of video I would need to make them work. My first day a GoPro, back when it was at the Half Moon Bay office I was introduced to multi-camera engineer Tim Macmillan as a fellow bearded wizard. So this is a history of a device, practice, and medium this is a history of the GoPro Omni or as we lovingly called it "shippy".
Our multi-camera efforts could be described in five flavors. 3D. Array camera. Spherical Camera. Stereo Panoramic Camera. Hyperfocal.
GoPro + Kolor
French based software company headed by Alexander Jenny had been working at automated solution for a while. After a couple of visits and meeting, the acquisition was set.
We had been capturing footage for three years by that point. Lions, hyenas, dolphins, whales, volcanoes, but spherical was always a secondary priority on camera launch shoots. So we would grab a couple shots and then put the camera away.
