NRC’s George Probst films first 360-degree great white shark video

A curious great white shark swims into to check out the Kolor Abyss 360.

NRC’s web designer, George Probst, was asked early this year to test out a new underwater camera rig that films 360° footage. George took the Kolor Abyss 360 on his recent great white shark diving trip to Isla de Guadalupe, and was able to capture some close-up footage of great white sharks. As far as we know, this is the first published video footage of great white sharks using this technology. This new technology allows for the video to be viewed from any angle and will create an immersive experience when viewed with a head-mounted display (such as the Oculus Rift).

You can read more about George’s experience with this new technology and view the 360° videos at Exclusive 360 degree video of great white shark.

If you’re lucky enough to have a head-mounted display, let us know how the experience was. If not, you can still experience the 360° effect by clicking and dragging on the video with your mouse to change the viewing angle.
