This certainly seems like it should be a straightforward thing to do with the 360fly camera, but I’m stuck trying to figure it out.
Here’s what I want to do:
Use the Google Street View iOS app in conjunction with my 360fly camera to shoot and upload beautiful, seamless photo spheres of various locations.
Street View gives me three options to do this:
- Spherical camera (connect via wi-fi to camera’s onboard wi-fi hotspot)
- Import photo spheres
- Camera (use the iPhone’s internal camera to shoot an array of images in a circle - software stitches them together…poorly)
Trying option 1 yields nothing. The app doesn’t recognize the 360fly. Boo!
For option 2, I shoot a little footage, pick a frame and export as a photo sphere. Email that image to myself, import into Photos, sync back with phone. Street View doesn’t “see” the photo to import it.
Anyone out there have any success in using 360fly with Google Street View? Please share your workflow.
