Pano2VR vs. Panotour Pro

We have been using Panotour Pro for our virtual Tours since the beginning of 2018 and had been very happy with it. The controls are intuitive, the generation of HTML 5 Virtual Tours seamless and the support for WordPress excellent.

Because Kolor announced there would be no more updates to Panotour Pro, we realised that there would only be a window of about six months before competitors overtook the product and a year before operating system upgrades rendered it broken. Under the circumstances we would be foolish to persist.

Pano2VR had come up in our initial analysis of toolsets Read more

PTGui vs. Autopano Giga

Action Camera company GoPro's recent decision to sunset their excellent portfolio of Panorama tools shows neatly how foolish it is to try and second guess a technology company. This post evaluates a competitor, PTGui vs. Autopano Giga.

GoPro acquired acknowledged industry leaders Kolor in 2015 as part of a deliberate to move into and dominate the VR market. As part of that acquisition they got Autopano Giga and Panotour. Autopano Giga was at the time the most user friendly and fully featured panorama stitching software available. Read more

360° Virtual Tours and Panoramas

360° Virtual Tours and Panoramas provide a compelling, immersive experience that puts control in the hands of the viewer, bringing your customers into your space from the place they are most likely to make a buying decision - their own armchair.

Our Frankwell Island Project created Virtual Tours and Panoramas for a number of businesses in the Frankwell district of Shrewsbury. Through this experience we were able to refine our skills and experiment with software and hardware options to provide the highest quality panoramas on the market. Read more

Frankwell Island Project

FUNKY FRANKWELL - SHREWSBURY’S UNDISCOVERED GEM

Frankwell or “Funky Frankwell” as it is often referred to is a vibrant, bustling area on the north side of the Welsh Bridge in Shrewsbury. The area is gloriously down at heel, deprived of funding and support and decidedly off the tourist map, but businesses there have developed a fierce sense of independence and a valid claim to be Shrewsbury’s Cool Creative Quarter.

Ageing Gracefully

Ageing Gracefully is a project by photographer Chris Wright. The project was created in collaboration with Age UK.

The inspiration for the project is Chris's recognition that photography of the aged tends to either patronise or isolate. Chris was not interested in portraying plucky old folk dragooned into activities they probably detest or focussing on the isolation that comes with the disintegration of the personality that we associate with dementia.

Innovative Marketing for Property

Innovative marketing in the Property market was probably most notable back in 2000 with the widespread takeup of the internet as the primary marketing channel.

Since that breakthrough we've seen a little incremental change, e.g. HDR photography, but little to suggest the industry is about to reinvent itself. Yet looking to America, the industry is being quietly revolutionised, driven by a trend of remote purchasing. VR Technology such as Virtual Tours have facilitated the process by offering the buyer a much more realistic impression of the property than can be given by photographs and videos alone. Read more

Photography, Video & GDPR

Photography, Video & GDPR or the General Data Protection Regulation are explicitly linked as the GDPR treats certain images as an extension of the data that Photographers and Videographers keep about their clients. If you're reaction to this is "so what?", then you need to know that GDPR becomes law on 25 May 2018, and supersedes the UK Data Protection Act of 1998. Read more

360° Panoramas & Virtual Tours

This peculiar photograph is a flattened version of a 360° Panorama I created today of our studio. 360° Panoramas & Virtual Tours are very big in Europe and America right now and we think that with recent improvements to the UK's Broadband Infrastructure that the time may be right to investigate this branch of photography/video further.
