Find your zen with this “Meow-ditation” experience.
The popular multinational photography company Canon has published an immersive 180-degree VR video on its official YouTube channel featuring a painfully-cute assortment of loveable felines. Canon describes the video as a “guided meditation” and the “purrr-fect way to de-stress.”
The roughly seven-minute video was captured using the company’s EOS R5 C camera and Canon RF5.2mm F2.8 L Dual Fisheye Lens by Andrew Marttila, aka @iamthecatphotographer, a popular cat photographer as well as a kitten rescuer for @orphankittenclub.
“As a Canon guy, I love experimenting with the latest technology,” said Marttila. “This lens makes high-quality VR accessible. It attaches to my Canon EOS R5 or R5 C like a regular lens. But the footage it captures is anything but ordinary.”
“With the dual fisheye design for the left and right eyes, it can create incredible 3D 180-degree pictures or video. And that makes it perfect for showing just how adorable these kittens are in real life. The camera captures every jump and every fall. Now these kitties are starring in their very own VR movie.”
You can watch the full 180-degree video on YouTube or in VR using a Meta Quest headset.
