Since the inception of photography over 150 years ago, photographers have continuously
sought better ways to bring realism and a sense of intimacy to their viewers.
While panoramic photography has been with us for almost 80 years, recent imaging technologies
and software have taken the panorama to yet another level, allowing capture of complete
360° x 360° cubic and spherical views of the scenes we photograph, along with the ability
to display them in powerfully immersive environments. Cubic and spherical panoramas expand
upon the traditional flat or cylindrical panorama. They allow for documentation of the complete
environment around you and provide a way to virtually immerse your audience into your vision.
They even offer a new means of artistic expression. Natural spaces and architectural projects can be
accurately and interactively visualized by audiences who may never actually visit these locations
in person. Virtual reality (VR) panoramas and object movies provide superior means to entertain,
educate and inform, as well as to market and sell commercial products.
Manfrotto's new 303SPH head allows photography of multi-row cubic, spherical and cylindrical
panoramas, along with VR object movie sequences. It is the latest addition to Manfrotto's
celebrated family of pan heads, tripods and camera supports that will change the way you
photograph your world.
