The MD version was ok'ish but the HD really struggled.. I guess when Australia rolls out its national broadband network it will be much better, New Media technology catching up with New Hardware technology..
Now here is a thing... This Ninja 360 video is supposed to be showcase of what can be done.. In an earlier related post I made this comment...: http://www.kolor.com/forum/p116515-yesterday-02-18-43#p116515
"360 video is most certainly an exciting newish media..
I have seen some really nice 360 videos and some really horrible ones... I guess
in order for this new media to have value, it must be seen to be of the highest quality.."
My question is.. If I where to choose this venue to shoot a VR Tour.. I would most certainly use bracketed shots since there is huge blowout of light from the windows.. So why the hell would I want to use this venue to shoot a video showcase demo under uncontrolled lights..?? At a link in the same related post above, Georg posted a url to a Ninja guy doing his thing in CONTROLLED lighting.. The results were amazing..
Personally, I would reshoot that video in controlled lighting.. True there will be times where this is unavoidable, but when you see the amount of blown lighting in this video.. I think it could have been done better.. Since this after all, is a showcase of 360 Video..
