The 2011 Philippine Biodiversity Expedition 

May 5, 2011

Planetarium Dome Images

I work in the Science Vizualization Studio and the specimens I’m collecting on this trip are the videos and photography we shoot This footage will not only be used for current events like the Academy’s Gala on May 5th and our live webcast on May 19th, but also for future exhibits and planetarium productions.

For the dome we use a specialized camera system, which incorporates the use of fisheye lenses. The result are videos and timelapse sequences which have a field of view of 180 degrees; round and immersive, perfect for the dome.

And we are not the only ones loving our camera setup…
