270 Degree Camera

Scott Aichner an internationally renowned surfing photographer has developed a World First
270 Degree Camera. The amazing and beautiful images captured are produced by two fish eye
lenses facing at 90 degrees from each other and once merged together give the viewer a feeling
of being inside the picture looking out on the world.

Scott wanted to Photograph a surfer in a tube and then be able to look out of the tube at the same time.
A panoramic Camera could not identify the angles that Scott was looking for and the shutter speed is too
slow to capture action.

For now the successful 270 Camera is a one and only. However, the World's drive to capture better images,
different perspectives and personal viewpoints are highlighted in a camera that has created an "Interactive Picture",
amazingly enough, using film bodies and not digital bodies. In an increasingly digitally-enhanced Wireless Earth, an
anti-trend becomes a trend.
