VATICAN CITY: As cameras that shoot 360-degree photos and videos become affordable, curious users will face a new challenge: figuring out how to take meaningful and compelling shots in what's effectively a new medium.Whoever holds the camera no longer controls the field of vision.Some phone apps can create 360-degree photos by stitching together images, similar to a panoramic shot, but a 360-degree camera is required for video. Ricoh's 360-degree Theta S camera sells for $350 and LG's 360 Cam costs $200 . Diving into 360 video means ditching traditional techniques that work well with smartphones and other cameras; doing otherwise means lots of dull 360 photos and videos. VIDEOS BECOME SELFIESThe 360-degree cameras work by stitching together images from two or more lenses. It's hard to stay out of the shot, even with the camera turned sideways, because the ultra-wide lenses are designed to capture everything, from top to bottom.FORGET FRAMING, AVOID PANNINGWith ordinary video, people are conditioned to move the camera to follow the subject.
