A boy throwing the camera ball into the air capturing the mountains all around him
My friend just sent me a link to a very cool new camera. This is not your everyday point and shoot, its a specialty camera, a ball with 36 little cameras spread across it. It's meant to be thrown in the air allowing you to take full 360° spherical panoramic photos. Not only does it span 360° on the horizon, but on the zenith (from the ground to the center of the sky and beyond) as well, giving a similar perspective to google street view, but even more complete. Check out the video below to see it in action...

The new Nikon Coolpix AW-100 waterproof camera in black
Many of the photos you see on this blog have been taken with one my Olympus Stylus Tough point and shoot cameras. When I travel I like to bring my Canon EOS Digital Rebel T2i for the majority of my shots, and a waterproof / shockproof point and shoot for when I'm in the water or go out drinking. Problem is, I've had several of the Olympus' leak water over the years. I'm currently on my 4th of its kind, which at the moment has a scratched lens and has leaked water, but partially recovered to the point where it still mostly works. I've decided its time for a change with news of the brand new and first of its kind Nikon Waterproof Camera.

Riding A Yak in Lake Namtso with the Nyechen Tangla mountains in the background
Q. I have a question about your travels, if you can think back to Everest Base Camp. Can you tell me about how that worked? How long did it take? How much did it cost? Any other tips or tricks in booking and doing it? Anything you’d do differently if you were to do it again?
