Some people immediately suggest mounting 5-6 cameras on a car,
each pointing in a separate direction.
An alternative method is to have a single (continuously shooting
video or web) camera, pointing upwards, and a rotating
periscope-like mirror on top. Only the mirror needs to rotate
(the rest is digital image processing), and I guess the entire
setup should be possible to fit inside a tube of 4 inch diameter.
No, I haven't tried this.
