Playing with Ricoh Theta S

A friend of mine recently bought Ricoh Theta S and was nice enough to lend it to me for a day.
It is a really nice gadget that produces decent quality 360-degree photos (5376 x 2688 px) and OK video files, considering that the videos are 1920 x 960 px.

I was very lucky the previous day to find a field full of poppies and I have shot some really nice photos. You could check the other images on the bottom of this page.

I have visited the same field the following day to test the Theta S and I have got some really unique perspective pictures.
It is really nice that Ricoh had worked out the embedding so well, whether you want to share the image on Facebook or Twitter and there is also an embed code that works really well.

Here is an example that I have took while laying in the middle of the field

And here is an example of photo taken in lower light in closed space  just to test the seams processing

At the end of the day, Theta S is really nice gadget and also it could be used for creating Google street view content, since it is one of the cameras suggested by Google

Home, home again. I like to be here when I can

It’s really nice to be home. Doesn’t matter if the weather is good or bad, we could just go out and feel the fresh air, the one that we are missing while living in Skopje.
Most of these photos were taken by the Ohrid lake where we went for a walk after visiting the church of St. Stefan

The lake is a source of enormous inspiration for me. I can’t stop taking photos.
I have left my camera at home and I have used my old trusty N7100 phone to take these pictures.

Found this boat stranded on the shore while walking by the lake. Probably the owner lives somewhere on the other side of the lake and the boat floated here during a storm. A short inspection proved that I was right, the boat's bottom was full of holes and it seemed that it was stranded here for quite a while.

My ZMR 250 all packed up and ready to go

Sadly enough I haven’t got my zmr 250 miniquad to capture some aerial photos, but I will revisit this place once again since I have found a really great spot for flying that involves a nice tree park and a deserted building.
