Incredible UAVs flying around Palmela

Three Palmela 2011 star speakers, Ignacio Ferrando Margelí, Ryan Whitehead and Nick Ivanov are bringing in their UAVs for special demonstrations to conference attendees. These RC helicopters will be flying around Palmela for special demos on how to capture 360º Photography and 360º Video from up in the air, but with your feet, well on the ground.

As you can guess by reading the names on this speakers list, all our goals for this conference regarding topics to cover and quality of the speakers where more than achieved, in fact, our goals where all surpassed by a great margin. These speakers are fantastically talented members of the panoramic community that kindly decided to share some of that talent with Palmela 2011 attendees. The IVRPA sincerely thanks them for this opportunity.

This summer Palmela, Portugal, will be the world capital of panoramic photography.

It is going to be amazing!
