New DSLR-based immersive video technology previewed by Danfung Dennis  
Monday, April 4, 2011 | by Eamon Hickey
Photographer and Sundance Film Festival winning DSLR filmmaker Danfung Dennis has posted a 1.5-minute video, using footage of the Libyan rebellion shot by Patrick Chauvel, that previews a new immersive video technology dubbed Condition ONE.

The web site DSLR News Shooter quotes Dennis as saying that the Condition One prototype is based on a video-capable Canon DSLR which captures the entire human field of view as a distorted circular image. The resulting footage can be projected without distortion on the interior surface of a dome, or viewed interactively on a tablet device. That interactivity is shown in the demo video below.

Dennis, who began his career as a still photographer, has said that he believes the language of still photojournalism is dying. He recently won the Sundance Film Festival World Cinema Documentary prize for Hell and Back Again, his film about the Afghanistan war, much of which was shot with a handheld Canon EOS 5D.
