360° convention pictures and movies comming up…

Boys and there toys…


Yes I’m human too, and as a web developer I read blog about what’s hot in web development in 2018. And guess what… 360° images are making their way up…

360 degrees cameras have to fisheye lenses and automatically stitch the images together so you get a real 360 view of the place where you took the pictures. Good quality 360 cameras are getting affordable and easy to use. So your truly ordered one online 🙂

And now for the good news… I will take it with me to the centennial convention in Chicago and will take 360° pictures in the convention hall, plenary, the parade, etc., etc… So, stay tuned for some really nice 360 experiences on the SMiLE Blog and Facebook page.


The picture below is taken during the District 112a convention during voting…

Nowadays it’s even possible to have 360° video and post them to YouTube. YouTube fully supports this kind of videos by adding navigation controls to view 360° videos. 360° videos are low quality.

The video on the right was shot during a multiple Lions Club inclusion event for people with disabilities, their compnions, families and  friends.

SMiLE | 5 years

September 2012, Europa Forum, Brussels, Belgium, SMiLE founding members Lion Tom Van Kerschaver (LC Brugge Maritime, MD112), Lion Sylvie Louagie (LC Oostende Beaufort, MD112) & Lion Ludwig Van Boxelaer (LC Dendermonde, MD112) present their first presentations about Lions and Social Media. Picked up and supported by LCI SMiLE grew into the information platform that it is today: Social Media for Lions by Lions.

Together with LCI and LCIF SMiLE is celebrating, but much less candles of course. But still something to be proud of. 5 years of informing Lions why and how they can use social media serving the community, helping shaping the public opinion.., connecting mountains… Making friends… serving…
