this folding camera can shoot 360°, or 180° in 3d

Insta360, the 360-degree camera maker, has launched the EVO, a revolutionary camera with a folding design that can capture both 360-degree footage and 180-degree content in 3D. The EVO uses two 180-degree camera units joined by a hinge. You can fold them back to back to capture 360-degree images that are joined seamlessly in-camera, or you can unfold the camera and snap the two units into a side-by-side configuration for capturing 180-degree 3D VR. The impression of 3D comes from taking two pictures from two positions, with a distance between them similar to that separating the human eyes. The hard bit is finding a display device that can ‘recombine’ them in a way that lets you see the 3D effect, and the EVO gives you two ways of doing this. The first is…

pro ways to shoot more spontaneously

It can be very easy to overthink photography, perhaps now more than ever. With so many highly complex cameras out there, and such a large variety of apps and accessories, taking a photo can feel far from simple. It’s easy to end up missing excellent opportunities, simply because we are concerned more by the photographic process than the outcome. Ideally, you shouldn’t need to think about the process at all. Your aim should be that you see an opportunity and photograph it almost within the same moment, and as part of the same thought process. Of course, one of the first steps to achieving that is complete familiarity with your camera, so you understand not only the settings you use regularly but also those that you don’t use, so that there’s…

know your kit

Successful photography in this digital age generally requires a fusion of technical knowledge and artistic vision. If you get this crucial balance wrong, the results are likely to be disappointing. Technical prowess is clearly important, as the latest digital cameras are so complicated – if you don’t know how to use your camera, how can you hope to take decent photographs with it? Editing software, such as Adobe Photoshop, can also be quite daunting. But if you place too much focus on the technical side of photography, the creative aspect can suffer, resulting in images that are technically perfect, but creatively dull. You can spend as much time as you like planning a shot, waiting for the light, using the highest-resolution cameras and sharpest lenses, and then sit at your computer…

always carry a camera

How many times have you been on the way home from work, out walking the dog, picking up the kids from school, or carrying out any number of other mundane, everyday tasks, only to see something say to yourself, “Damn, if only I had a camera with me”? A beautiful rainbow suddenly appears, the sky erupts with colour at sunset, someone walks down the street in fancy dress or a police raid happens right before your eyes. Whether it’s scenic beauty, humour or high drama, we’ve all found ourselves wishing we had a camera to capture the unexpected – and it’s even more frustrating when you’re a photographer in that situation. The good news is that you don’t need to lug around a full DSLR kit everywhere you go, or even your…

master your machine

More great photo opportunities are missed while we fiddle around with camera controls than for any other reason, so if you want to be a more spontaneous photographer you need to be familiar with your equipment. The key is to have your camera set up so it’s as quick and easy to use as possible, and also to minimise the number of different settings and functions you use so there’s less chance of setting the wrong one. For example, your camera will have several metering patterns – spot, partial, centre-weighted and multi-zone – but the most reliable for general use is multizone, so set it, leave it set and ignore the others. It won’t give perfect exposures every time, but by sticking with it you’ll soon learn to recognise those situations where…
