360 Degree Underwater GoPro Panning TimeLapse Test

Back in August I promised I would try to test my egg timer time lapse thing-a-ma-jig again
and try to achieve an underwater 360 degree panning timelapse with my gopro.
Well, I finally got a chance to try it again while on staycation here in Florida.
Specifically, Lido Beach in Sarasota.
I waited for a quiet morning, did not want kids disturbing it, or creeped out parents calling the cops.
Amazingly, it worked.

The inspiration for this test came from Canon Filmmakers and Philip Bloom.
Cristina came up with the idea and their video is a fun watch.

I used the same rig as before, Joby Gorillapod, with egg timer spinning my GoPro Hero.
Unfortunately, this time the shot killed my egg timer.
So, don't try this shot unless you want to risk your $4 dollar egg timer time lapse thing-a-ma-jig.
