The Freedom360 Mount is a company nothing to do with the Hero cameras. Is this right. The cameras are made by GoPro..

Destiny wrote: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..
Destiny wrote:However, the Freedom360 Black Mount looks awesome, but at $500 its very expensive...
Then each Hero camera cost $430 each, X 6 = $2,580.... Thats a basic setup cost of over $3,000... Then there is the Kolor software costing between $300-$600 depending on which version.. The sales of the avp and agp are totally reliant on the sales of this hardware.... Perhaps I have totally underestimated the cost since here at the Kolor shop the hardware is 2660 Euro which equates to $3,764 Aus.. + software.. eeeks..!!.... The issue I see, most users of Pano software are hobbyist.. I would love a Freedome360 with a set of 6 Hero cameras but.. as a hobbyist it's not justified in me buying it.. As for professionals.... the market I would suggest would be very limited.
I have heaps of ideas I would love to test out using this rig.. but my ideas and actually having the opportunity to implement them are so far removed due to the cost of it all.. I guess its all aimed at the professional market.
