This interactive 360 degree content requires HTML5/CSS3, WebGL, or Adobe Flash Player Version 9 or higher.

We recently visited the First Direct Arena in Leeds - in June 2013. Works are almost completed for the opening and first public events in July.

We photographed this exterior panorama using the Nodal Ninja UR10 Business kit. Our technique was to take photos at 90º intervals, giving 4 points of the compass for a full rotation, at the same time 'bracketing' the shots, so taking 3 images at each point, one under exposed, one at standard exposure and one over exposed. These images were then combined, stitched and blended using 'PTGui' software, then published for web and mobile viewing using the Pano2VR software to produce the panorama above in HTML5 format for compatibility with the latest web browsers and mobile devices. (You can also view a night-time panorama showing the exterior light show on the Arena building)

Hardware checklist for producing this panorama:
Sigma 8mm Fish-eye lens. Canon 550D 'crop frame' DSLR camera. Nodal Ninja UR10 Business kit mounted to EZ Leveller MKII ('Easy Leveller') onto tripod.
