Girocam: The first completely automatic 360° camera
Girocam: One click, one 360° photo
Girocam is a little revolution unto itself: It’s the first camera that let’s you take 360° shots completely automatically. The dream of many of us is now a reality: to create 360° panoramas and virtual tours very quickly while maintaining fine photographic quality. With three fisheye lenses and three sensors of ten megapixels each, Girocam takes three photos in just one click, allowing it to cover a field of 360°x150°. The completely automated stitching is done by included Kolor Girocam Studio software; it was developed by Kolor and is based on the same state of the art algorithms as those used in Autopano, the world benchmark for image stitching software. With the Panotour Pro software (optional), finally turn your shots into interactive virtual tours and publish them to the web.
"With three sensors of ten megapixels mounted onto three fisheye lenses, Girocam fuses three shots by itself for a fast and efficient effect."
"By eliminating the post-production phase, Girocam highly increases productivity, which means an increase in profitability for professional photographers."
Girocam offers you an extremely optimized workflow so you can create high-quality virtual tours very quickly. Use Girocam for taking the shots and the included Kolor Girocam Studio software application for the fully automated image stitching, then select the Panotour Pro application to turn your 360° photos into interactive virtual tours. Add links, audio, embedded images or even videos to them to create professional virtual tours in minutes.
Girocam offers 4 shooting modes. The “Photo” mode is the simplest one: it takes 1 photo per fisheye lens (i.e. 3 photos) where the exposure adjusts automatically. The “HDR” mode should be chosen for indoor shootings: it takes 3 photos per fisheye lens, each photo having a different exposure to conserve the best colors in the indoor parts as well as the outdoor parts. The two other modes can be customized: you can therefore program them to fit the shots you would like to take (setting the self-timer delay and the number and levels of exposures to capture).
Panotour Pro software (optional) is the perfect companion to your Girocam. After having saved your 360° photos, create interactions in Panotour Pro. Link the various parts of the place you’ve photographed, add ambient sound, embed the videos into TVs, add logos, photos, animations and more. Panotour Pro enriches the 360° Girocam photos with their full meaning.
