These interactive panoramas allow users to explore an environment with amazing clarity and a 360° x 180º field of view. Using the H3Pro6 and 360H6, Chris simply walked with our gear and clicked a single button to capture these fully spherical images. The key is the GoPro remote, which allows users to simultaneously fire multiple GoPro cameras while they are mounted in our holders. This makes it possible for photographers to effortlessly capture a seamless and limitless field of view.
