Next iMug Monthly Meeting—
Tuesday 28 March 2017
iMug meetings return to Ross House in Flinders Lane
Back to the future - for our Tuesday 28 February meeting.
Yes, we are returning to this central location as the committee recognises that ease of transport is of paramount importance for many of our members to attend our monthly evening meetings.
Time: 6:30pm start
Where: Ross House, Level 4, 247 Flinders Lane, Melbourne (between Swanston & Degraves Streets)—If an usher is not at the door to let you in, press the intercom button marked Floor 4 Front (not Rear).
‘Photography for everyone'
Frame rates, focus and F-stops are no longer required!
Presenter: Gary Bass, Apple Distinguished Educator
The March meeting will be of special interest all photographers - and isn’t this most of us now that the iPhone is so available! Just choose where you want to record a scene. Relive the moment with a full surround image or video.
In this session Gary Bass will be exploring the emerging worlds of 360° media using the recently released INSTA360 nano suitable for iPhone (with lightning connector). Recent developments have moved quickly, with the convergence of VR (Virtual Reality) AR (Augmented Reality) and 360° media.
Yes, technology is rapidly changing and Gary will be offering a great session to keep us up to date, as well as demonstrating a very affordable device.
Early pano stitching approaches have been superceded by an all in one device. GoPro still offers a professional rig which uses 12 cameras synchronised for 4K video, however for a domestic consumer the tools are within easy reach.
This session will investigate the components necessary to produce 360° panoramic still or video media and to be published to YouTube, FB or held privately. Viewing of MR (Mixed Realities) requires a suitable browser or player. The software APP is readily available for iOS and macOS.
