Head-spinning heights

Post from RICOH THETA. #theta360 - Spherical Image - RICOH THETA

I was lucky to get to take this 360-degree shot from the roof of a 20-storey building in Tokyo for a PR advert for the new Ricoh Theta S camera. It was a bit palm-sweating to hold the camera on a selfie-stick so that it leaned over the edge of a 20-floor drop (well, I felt safe, but if the camera dropped…!) But it made for a neat cityscape and included the passing shinkansen.

The final rotatable and explorable image is not for easy export to print, below is the ad as it appeared on the page of the Foreign Correspondents' Club magazine, Number 1 Shimbun.
