Sometimes you’re traveling alone and forget your selfie stick, or maybe taking a picture at close range doesn’t result in the photo you were looking for. Well, there is a solution. At two of Seoul’s most popular destinations, you can snap CCTV selfies – in 4K!
CCTV Selfies with Panorama Seoul
Recently the South Korean government introduced an amazing option to help you take brilliant photos in 4k quality. It is called Panorama Seoul and it allows you to take a CCTV selfie. As a result, you can capture the beautiful landscape of Seoul at two of its most stunning locations.
It is done by scanning the QR code at designated photo zones. This is an awesome feature and is much different from your normal selfie. With the help of this service, you can take captivating pictures of Seoul from otherwise impossible angles.
Panorama Seoul is an excellent service, but unfortunately, it is currently only available in two places. The first is Sebitseom Island, along the Han river and Dongdaemun Design Plaza (DDP).
The photo zone in Sebitseom Island is located over a bridge that connects the island and Hangang Park. The photo zone in Dongdaemun Design Plaza is located facing Hanyangdoseong but within the grounds of DDP. In these two places, you can take amazing photos using the Panorama Seoul service.
CCTV Selfie at Sabitseom Island
Sabitseom Island is an artificial island located along the Han River near Banpo Bridge. This has become a cultural complex known for its unique architecture.
The island is very beautiful and glows brightly at night. The island has many amazing restaurants like Chavit cuisine, Isola, and café Dolce. Apart from this, Sabitseom Island is the number one on-river wedding venue and banquet hall in Seoul.
It is the best place to capture stunning views of the Han River. However, because of the location, it is a bit hard to take a picture of both the river and the stunning island. With the help of a CCTV selfie, you can take the best pictures possible!
CCTV Selfie at Dangdaemun Design Plaza
DDP is known as one of the cultural hubs of Seoul. It holds many exhibitions, domestic and international events, forums, and fashion shows including the Seoul Fashion Week.
If you want to enjoy the amazing DDP and take beautiful pictures, you can now do so with the help of Panorama Seoul. You can take some great Instagram photos and post them on social media to increase your followers. After all, it is one of the most Instagram-able places in Seoul.
How to Use Panorama Seoul
To use the Panorama Seoul service to take CCTV selfies, you have to visit the photo zone in person. Then, scan the QR code in your browser, Kakao, or never. Then, tap 파노라마 서울 이용하러 가기.
It will then direct you to visit the Seoul site to log in. To log in you can use your Naver account, Kakaotalk, Facebook, or Twitter. Then after logging in, if you cannot understand Korean, change the language according to your preference. Then tap the work snap.
Once you’ve done that, you’re ready for your CCTV selfie! Look at the camera and pose for about 8 seconds, and wait for about 30 seconds to receive your images. After 30 seconds your photos and videos will be available.
For photos, there are two options. You can download far images and close-up images. In the far image, you see the whole area behind you, but you cannot see yourself unless you enlarge the image. While in the close-up image you can see yourself.
Panorama Seoul is an innovative technology tapping into Seoul’s CCTV selfie capabilities. It stops people from putting themselves at risk when they try to take selfies from high angles. Furthermore, if you travel alone and have no one to take photos of you, this is an amazing service. Click Here to read more about Panorama Seoul.
