The IVRPA, or International VR Photography Association, is an international association of professionals who create and produce interactive, immersive images. During Photokina 2006, members of the IVRPA will be covering the major events and important booths in 360 degree, fullscreen immersive panoramic VR. These interactive VRs will be posted on this site during the event.

Around the World in 360 Degrees

On our booth in hall 05.1, we are showing an exhibition of printed panoramas by our members, as well as several showcases of interactive panoramic VR.
Listed below are the latest panoramas posted to the site. They may not be in chronological order. Alternatively, you can browse the panoramas by equipment used, by location on the fairground, by day, by photographer and by tag.

A nice dinner at a Thai restaurant near the Meininger Hotel that our group stayed at. In Germany they have nice warming trays but no chopsticks. The water is always served from a bottle and costs more than Petro in the United States. This time we passed the remote shutter release around and Aldo got creative with the video light.

Enlargers ?
Yes they still exist. A couple of weeks ago I gave away for free my $8000 Durst after trying to sell it for 5 years but at Photokina Kaiser, KIENZLE among others still exhibit even if the public seems to be very small.
