The Last Kampung in Singapore

Quicktime | DevalVR 

Kampung Lorong Buangkok. Thank you to the very kind people for the chat and their time. Most importantly for allowing me to walk and wader around the kampung taking all these panos. No thanks to the dogs barking and chasing me hahaa but still, it was a great experience, away from the hussle and bustle of the city. This is the closest we have to a real kampung on mainland Singapore.

Here’s a map on where this place is but please please please, when there, respect the resident’s privacy, don’t litter, respect the plants and animals there. Ask for permission if you think you’re intruding into places.

Waterfall Timelapse Pano

timelapse_360_waterfallfront_tiny.jpg

Timelapse. To see a static 360 one that’s taken during the night. See here. It was raining when this sets of 5 x 360 pano were taken thus the slight movement of the camera/ NN3 and why the sky is totally “washed out” and grey.

If it’s too slow in loading, try resizing the viewing window smaller. It will scale accordingly. Remember, you’ll need shockwave.

SPI-V testing. Look out for more exciting stuffs with this engine soon…

It may not be as popular (yet!) due to the steep learning curve and many photographers were first a photographers then a computer guy I supppose. I happen to be the other way round and is still an ametuer doing this more as a hobbyist.

Aimlessly walking around Cityhall area after work on Sat. Got chased away by security guards, it’s common for me already, especially when they see tripod and some weird looking equipment, the Nodal Ninja 3 and the DSLR.

8mm Pelang

8mm Pelang, 6 images (1 shot per 60 degrees)

180_8mmpelang_6images.jpg

10-20mm Sigma, 7 images (1 shot per 45 degrees)

180_1020mm45_tiny.jpg

Gotten the 8mm Pelang again to try out as the previous attempt was not possible due to a sprained back I had from work. Not as good as I wanted it to be and seems to have more work than I expected. I’ve read on many sites about this popular lens for 360 panos (along with the 10.5mm Nikkor) but I give up after a few hours of tries. Sticking to my 10-20mm Sigma that has serve me very well without the fisheye effect to worry about. Yes, we can defish it with software but the workflow will take up more time. Above, you’ll see the comparison, comparing 10-20mm and the 8mm Pelang taking a 180 Pano of my room. Sorry, it’s not a 360 x 360 Pano.

So what’s good about using a 8mm Pelang to take a pano? Well, “people” actually. Those of you who has seen a few of my panos will know that at times, there the “ghosting” effect of people walking from left to right in a pano and as there’s no way to tell them to stop walking since it’s a public place, it’ll be good if a 8mm is used as you need fewer shots eliminating the need rush to take the pano shots as the passer by won’t be able to walk into your frame yet after taking a shot. Some has taken successfully panos with the 8mm with as little as 4 shots (4 images, 90 degrees per shot) thus, it effectively froze the scene with the right shutter and aperture/ ISO settings! That’s really cool, not to mention a lot lesser work in Photoshop and PTGui later.

I’ve termed some Pano 180 when it is actually a 360 x 0 degrees shot where a full 360 pano is actually 360 degrees x 360 degrees allowing you to spin in any direction to see “what’s there”. With a 360 x 0 degrees pano, you can only go left and right and thus, it simpler to just name them 180 Panos, as in 360 divde by 2. Yes, it ain’t right strictly speaking and I do know of that. Anyways, enjoy all the panos here!
