I picked up a cheap 360 degree camera from LG. Based on the reviews, people either love it or hate it. I'm still figuring it out but it seems pretty decent. Here I took some 360 degree panos and used Gimp to turn them into spheres. (I used the Polar Coordinates filter) I hope you like them.

Looks like a great way to create micro worlds, Greg. How much does such a camera cost? :)

$111.21 for the camera, $24.57 for a 64G memory card and $15.52 for a 4 year service plan.

What's very interesting about this camera, is that the jpg image it creates is full 360, top and bottom, but when you pull it up in an editing program like Gimp you lose the very top and bottom and the stitching always as good. It is something I will play with to get the whole image.

PhotoMaster, I like this very much. Your first photo is nice. I like gazebos, pavilion structures and bandstands. ;)

Nice new toy, you have there.

Thank You, Thank You!

I must correct my prior post.
All the top and bottom data are included in the jpg. It's just how it gets folded. I am having fun, for sure!

Mmm - very interesting - memo to self to hint for next birthday - any chance of posting an image before applying the polar co-ordinates filter PM? Perhaps the Gazebo?

Here is a file directly from the camera, without any modification. If you put it into Google Maps you can fully pan around with it and see it's actual detail. I haven't tried Google Maps yet but it is supposed to be the correct format.

EDIT: The pictures simply had to be uploaded. It worked out very well. The images are clearer on my phone and on my PC than they are on Google Maps.
