Out With the Light-Hungry Spinner at the Stadium

On July 17th, 2011 the finals of the Women’s Soccer World Cup took place in Frankfurt, Germany. I had the Spinner 360° with me and tried to catch the atmosphere at the stadium and public viewing area.

Prepared with self-decorated t-shirt, binoculars and of course, my Spinner 360°, I watched the finals of the Women’s Soccer World Cup that took place in Frankfurt in the evening of July 17th. Together with some friends and a crowd of about 49,000 fans, I enjoyed the fantastic atmosphere of excitement. Good soccer players as the German or Brasil teams bow out in the quarter-finals. The US women used to play good soccer but will it be enough to win against Japan who went through the tournament with sovereignty?

To get sound results with the light-hungry Spinner, I had chosen a Fuji Superia 1600 ASA and had it pushed to 3200 (The lab of my choice may not be cheap but they do not charge extra for pushing one step). Before loading the Superia 1600 I finished the roll of a DM Paradiso 200 I had already taken some shots at the public viewing area. Now see the pictures:

As you may have noticed, I had no chance to show my self-made soccer t-shirt. Even if it was summer, I sat there freezing in my autumn jacket and pullover.

For the ones among you who were out shooting and didn’t watch the game: Japan actually beat the US after a thrilling match, including penalty kicks.

The Spinner 360° goes beyond the confines of standard panoramic cameras. See everything around you (literally!), and be swept away by truly spectacular results. Head to our Online Shop and get your own Spinner 360°!
