360 cameras spotted at Superbowl 2017: Panono and Samsung Gear 360
Congratulations to the New England Patriots for a hard-fought victory at Superbowl 2017 (they came back from a 25-point deficit in the third quarter, the largest comeback in Superbowl history)! With this win, Tom Brady has become the first quarterback to have five Superbowl rings.
Meanwhile, I spotted a Samsung Gear 360 and a Panono among the crowd of reporters and photographers. Hopefully they got some useful shots, although that would be very difficult because of the people jostling around Brady, which probably blurred the shot. Plus, the Samsung Gear 360 was surrounded by people at very close range, obstructing its view and making stitching very difficult.
The Panono might fare better. I saw it lifted high on a monopod, but it could still be difficult because it was being bumped around.
