I was kind of confused..
The Freedom360 Mount is a company nothing to do with the Hero cameras. Is this right. The cameras are made by GoPro..
This is well known - where´s the problem?
I have seen the results of an arial pano captured using a single Hero camera.. The pano results were excellent.. It was suggested that the Phantom Quadcopter fitted with a GoPro mount and Hero camera were used...http://www.camerastore.com.au/video-cam ... mount.html
No 360x180° video - of course not: you need 5 - 6 cameras for a sphere. Can´t see the video: "This video is private".
To be honest I do not like the blue rubber type of housing..
It´s not designed for putting it on a sideboard for decoration i guess . . .
Who cares about the color??
Better judge gadgets by their features - not by their look . . .
The way I see it.. The concept is great, however its the cost of this hardware which will open the door to others creating a more affordable rig in time... Perhaps it might be an all in one 6 lens Hero camera..
The real question is:
who is willing to pay appropriately for the resulting videos?
I guess nobody would like to give away a 360x180° video for free. I guess nobody would produce such a video for some few bucks.
So the most important point is: where are the clients for 360x180° video? What price can i ask for a well made 360x180° video?
It´s quite obiviously not a quick and dirty thing to produce - so it needs to earn a good price! Who pays appropriate money for the effort of
buying the hard-/software and producing excellent results?
I mean: it´s really nice . . . but: cui bono?
PS - we see that some months after the Hero3 was released there now is a Hero3+ . . . providing better features.
Given i´d bought a set of 6 Hero3 Black when they came out: i´m sure i´d feel some kind of pissed . . . wouldn´t i.
