I’ve shot a lot of 360 degree photospheres, tried I think every 3rd party app available for them, in the end I always went back to shooting them by hand. Nothing else really worked, and they were always SLOW, often taking up to an entire full battery. Shooting by hand I could shoot a couple of panos with lots of overlap in a single battery, using AEB mode.
So, I was absolutely expecting the DJI app to be less than useful when I tried the new mode yesterday. Wow, I like pleasant surprises! It may not be perfect, but it’s pretty darned good and a huge upgrade over every app as well as handheld shooting 95% of the time. Most importantly, it is FAST. The drone just whips around completing an entire pano is less time than a handful of shots would have taken from any app in the past.
The big ‘ole nor’easter that plowed through New England Jan 4th, 2018 dropped about a foot of snow here in northeast CT. It was also a perfect excuse to create a pre-sunrise to post-sunset holy grail 4k timelapse!

Been having some fun the past few days shooting the moon! With a recent focus on some astrophotography putting the sky in my mind, the excitement over this month’s supermoon on Jan 1 & “blue blood” lunar eclipse Jan 31st, not to mention some clear skies before the big snowstorms, it was time to create some pics.
The first shot I’m a bit extra happy about, as it is the first image shot w/ my new Sony A7Riii. It is love at first sight.

Feel fortunate to have enjoyed this morning’s beautiful sunrise, seeing the change as the sun began lighting up the fresh fallen snow. It was an amazing view from above as the light slowly but surely began to filter through the trees and push back the blue of night.
