Re: Photo Sphere tips
ThatAdamGuy, I have been wondering if it's possible to do an "inverted" 3D image. I'll explain:
A photosphere gives a 3D image as if you were standing inside the view; the effect is that the picture is all around you. (Compliments and thanks to everyone in the team for developing this lovely feature.)
What I would like to be able to do is to take a 3D picture of an object from its outside, e.g. a small statue, an insect on a leaf, or a lampshade. (Obviously, in most cases it would not be possible to photograph underneath the object. That area would be left black in such cases.) The effect would be that you are moving around the picture instead of standing inside it.
It would allow the viewer to examine the object from all angles as if he were there.
I have spent some time Googling this, but I cannot find any examples of this, or even what it would be called, much less how it could be done.
Is this possible on a modern Android phone?
EDIT: This does seem possible with the right app. I discovered Camera3D, which gives 3D images, but only in one direction (i.e. left-to-right, not up and down). It's not quite what I'm looking for, but it will do.

Re: Photo Sphere tips
Hi guys, I'm new to this but hope I can help with whatever little knowledge I have
I have seen most of the ppl struggling to get a perfect or near perfect photosphere. I mainly and mainly use my cam in landscape mode, even for the photosphere. The simple logic I apply is to find the central axis point for the can on ur phone. Place your index fingers along the cam axis lengthwise and use the rest of the fingers to support and menuver the phone so that it only tilts on the horizontal cam axis. This helps to tilt the cam up and down. Now to establish a vertical axis, put your ankle a little forward (whichever ankle is near to the cam). Now, try maintain the cam right above the forward placed ankle and at a fixed height (I prefer at the eye level) and move yourself in a circular motion and your ankle as your center point. This is how I do it. This might look a lil awkward but worked for me many times. By the way, pardon me for my bad English. Ty.
