Human beeings have an almost 180-degree forward-facing horizontal field of view. And some birds have a complete or nearly complete 360-degree field of view. The vertical range of the field of view in humans is typically 180 degrees.
Wouldn’t it be great to capture a 360° field of view on video?
Up to now it was hard work and a lot of money and time to be spent to get 360° videos right.
360° Video is an entirely new medium for today’s display technology. 360° Video surrounds the user in content. It is immersive, transporting, and exploratory. It is not virtual reality. It is real life, recorded completely.
360Heros, a long time specialist on 360° videos, has now come up with an easy to use and inexpensive solution: the 360Heros 360 Plug-n-Play holders! The 360Heros 360 Plug-n-Play holders can house 6 different GoPro cameras to create the all-seeing eye.
Learn more about the system in the following video:
The 360Hero website states: “This is all possible because of a convergence of camera utility, stitching software, and display technologies. The 360 Plug-n-Player Holders provide the essential framework that ties it all together. They are 3D printed from aircraft-grade nylon and designed for ease of use in the field. ”
The holder is currently beeing funded as a kickstarter project which you can support here!
It’s our hope to continually share our imaging knowledge and experience for free. To support us in this effort please consider making your next purchase through our partner Amazon. The price will stay the same for you, but a small commission is attributed back to all of the contributors at F Stop Lounge.
Thanks in advance for showing your support and we wish you all the best in your photographic journey.
