Apple has introduced the new A8 chip, the CPU used in the latest iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. The new dual-core chip is 25% faster than the previous A7, while the M8b GPU is 50% faster than the M7. A detailed test of our latest Virtual Reality applications, running on the Apple iPhone 6, confirms that the A8 performance is amazing.
The iPhone 6 hi-res screen is valuable in Virtual Reality productions, as it’s particularly accurate in rendering a wide color gamut, without artifacts.
We have performed a shooting test of the new Nikon D810, the highest resolution full-frame DSLR by Nikon. The new 36 Mpixel sensor (7360×4912 pixels) and the EXPEED 4 processor provide the user with a spectacular performance, as far as the quality of the picture and the speed of the camera are concerned.
On April, 2014, Nikon Italy has published my latest eXperience for their website.
The article, also featured in the March FeelNikon Newsletter, deals with the latest Nikon DSLR’s, and I explain how the cameras should be used in Virtual Reality productions. The article focuses on the new HTML5 format, a great tool to show Virtual Tours on mobile devices.

The Pietà di Palestrina is a statue, considered to be a Michelangelo’s work of art.
The statue is located in the Captives Gallery, in the heart of the Accademia Gallery in Florence, in front of the David Tribune.
The “Prigioni“, or “Captives“, are unfinished, fascinating statues created my Michelangelo.
Photography is about light.
The sunset light is particularly beautiful, after a rainstorm. When light is magical, Virtual Reality is worth a thousand pictures!
