Just got the new 2017 model from Korea. So far, it's very cool! BUT, if there's an 'active' scene along the stitching lines of the two lenses, the entire video seems to..pulse or jump up and down. It's very distracting. I've turned off all hard...

You trying to LiveStream via Facebook? Or...? Don't think it can be done on an iPhone at the moment. Only Android. It's controlled through the Gear 360 App on your phone, and the Action Director software on a computer.I'm going to test...

When I've had problems, I've restarted the camera, started, held the MENU until I see 'Connect IOS,' then gone on an iPhone into the WiFi list and connected. Sometimes, if too much time elapses between pressing that menu button to connect and g...

If you want professional video you need 360-degree sounds. Not every 360° camera has it.

 

Do you know good vr mic to have nice audio for 360 video?

 

Propably it will be mount with 4 microphones in 4 directions.

As the Youtube specs for 3D audio accompanying 360x180 equirectangular video mandate for an Ambisonics B-format 4-channels audio track, there is little choice: you need an Ambisonics microphone!

They are on the market since 25 years now, the oldest one, and still very respected, is the Soundfield microphone.

Which indeed is quite bulky and very expensive...

Cheaper, smaller microphones also employing the same tetrahedral arrangement of just 4 capsules are the Coresound Tetramic and the Brahma. Both are under 1000 USD, and the second can also be ordered embedded inside a Zoom H2n digital recorder, making for a very compact and portable setup.

But if you want the best of the best for your soundtrack, 4 microphones are really not enough, and you need to purchase an Eigenmike. A spherical microphone array equipped with 32 top-quality condenser capsules, and digital conversion inside the sphere, so that a single CAT5 ethernet cable carries out the 32 signals, the gain control signals and power supply.

I own an Eigenmike, and it is really fantastic, the spatial detail captured is something impossible with just 4 capsules!
