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

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).
