OrcaVue Life "Bullet time 360 Rig"

Unique 'Bullet time 360" rig for providing the ultimate 'hero' selfie.  

Traditionally, you needed a fixed rig of perhaps 50 DSLR cameras in a circle to make this shot with a lot of crew, knowhow and data.  Today, you only need a single GoPro and an OrcaVue platform.

Creates a unique shot when used in conjunction with DSLR/GoPro type cameras reminiscent of the Matrix "Bullet Time" shot which only makes sense when you see the shots that it facilitates.
