23 Jan Samsung Gear 360
Virtual Reality is picking up steam. Meanwhile it is a standard task for a professional aerial team too. But the workflow is not as easy as just downloading the content of the card to your computer and then edit away. The material needs to get converted several times because virtual reality technology is fairly new for the consumer market. The material sits on the card as a raw file or unstitched and needs to be worked over in the computer. Every camera manufacturer has its own method as usual.
So we tested two of the more affordable cameras on the market the last couple of weeks, the Nikon Keymission 360 and the Samsung Gear 360. We decided to buy the Samsung Gear 360 in the end. As is the case with the Nikon the workflow with the Samsung is not any easier, it needs a pc not a mac in the chain and it can not be remotely controlled via an IOS app but the picture is what made us decide to go for it.
