Spinner 360°: Keeping Up With the Times


With its offbeat look and unconventional way of taking photos, the Spinner 360° is undoubtedly a head-turner. It draws people to ask about it—if it's a "real" camera, and if it is ... how does it work? And with all the techniques that you can do with it, demonstrating how it's used is more fun with a participating crowd—after all, they will be in the picture! It's not surprising then, that when you browse through Spinner 360° photos in the community, they are almost always with families and friends.

Our current circumstances have limited interaction and travel, both of which provide creative options for a photographer. But that doesn't mean you should render the Spinner 360° useless during these times!

Spin In Solitude

Recently, plenty of people have been rediscovering their towns and cities, and finding the hidden gems in their neighborhoods during solitary walks. The Spinner 360° comes in handy for such tours. Capture the peace and quiet in the streets of your town, take advantage of scenic views without unwanted photo-bombing tourists, or take a self-portrait against an interesting backdrop without having to ask anyone to take the photo for you!

Spinning Within Distance

Spending quarantine with your family or friend bubble? Or perhaps you're lucky enough to live in a country that is moving forward and safely easing up on restrictions? Some places are opening up with precaution, and it is still beneficial to practice social distancing. These days, even the smallest or rather ordinary gathering feels so novel that it demands a picture. A Spinner 360° will capture everything and everyone around you, so you can social-distance and still snap a photo to remember a simple moment.
