I’ve been monkeying around with the Theta S vr/360 camera. The still were pretty easy to figure out, but video has been a tad trickier. To get it to render on YouTube, you have to make sure the right metadata is injected into the file so it will render correctly. I think I’m finally getting the hang of the process. Below is about 6 minutes of video I shot while Lara and I were biking home from Little Fish Brewery. The Hocking River is on our right as we ride and the OU campus is on the left.
And here’s another that I shot while we were heading up West Union to Court Street, and then up Court Street.
I’m not really doing any postproduction at this point. Just trying to get them to render on YouTube and Facebook.
Here’s an attempt to upload a still image from the Ricoh site, which I’ve been using to archive my stills. This is a shot I took while resting at the Eclipse Company Town while I was biking from Athens to Nelsonville on the bikeway.

Not too thrilled with the resolution on those. And finally, here’s a gratuitous shot of Game One of the Stanley Cup finals. Go Pens!
