If you like your Islay videos ‘interactive’ I might have a little treat for you: After Kilchoman beach in 360° and Lossit Bay in 360° I’ve just uploaded my third 360° Islay video. This one takes us to Islay’s largest village and administrative centre, to Bowmore. You can take a look at the village from various places, from the Square, from the beach, from just outside the Round Church and from the pier. Because it’s 360° you can decide where you want to look (this is where the ‘interactive’ bit comes in), with your mouse you can move the camera angle in whichever direction you want, left, right, up, down, up to you.
If you look closely you can also spot me loitering in the background in various places. That’s the beauty (?) of 360° video, you can’t hide behind the camera (although on occasion you can hide behind objects like a wall or a car). I hope this doesn’t put you off watching the video.
I haven’t decided yet what my next Islay video will be, but I’m hoping to upload another one in a week or two. What do you think of 360° videos, like them or loathe them?
