If this isn’t the best reason for producing 8K 360° VR footage. A Brilliant timelapse video lasting just over 1m.
Photographer William Briscoe captured this spectacular 360° 8K timelapse on January 31st near Fairbanks, Alaska.
“Here is a 360 video of the Lunar Eclipse, Alaska style, which I filmed on January 31st near Fairbanks. Lady Aurora, being the Diva she is, just couldn’t let the moon have all the attention that night, so she made a nice showing as well.”
The full video is only a minute and ten seconds long, but that doesn’t mean it was easy to shoot. Responding to a comment on YouTube, Briscoe revealed that it was -31°F (-35°C) out that night, so just getting his 360° rig (a custom-built array of numerous 35mm DSLRs) to work was a challenge.
