Ok, so Insta360 Studio requires 2:1 aspect ratio. If your camera doesn't record in 2:1, the options will be greyed out. For example, on the Nikon Keymission, 4K mode gives 3840 x 2160 which is not 2:1 so you need to shoot your video at the 1920...

    What we all really need (whether you know it or not!) is a real two- or three-axis gimbal designed for the Samsung Gear 360!  This gimbal would have to be SMALL so as to keep out of the field of view.  So far (Nov 2016) all I have seen are homemade jobs that are a "little too big" to say the least.

     

    Hopefully some enterprising folks will build one.  Then putting a 360 camera at the end of a selfie stick, or hanging one off a drone, will produce smooth results!

      Hi Steve,

       

      Ive built my own adapter for the Samsung Gear 360. Now it fits the standard "DJI Osmo Mobile" Gimbal nicely. The whole setup is pretty small and works okay. Take a look at my first test videos. Should work with other small gimbals too.

      PS. What we really need is some sort of RAW hack for the Samsung Gear 360 to get native image quality out of the sensors without the codec compression. The H265 codec is somewhat crappy if you have small details everything gets mushy. I've made some intense tests and the best quality I get from the RAW files is through the Samsung S7 or the paid version of AutoPanoVideoPro with ProRes output.

        Dan,

         

        Your videos look great!  I would love to see two things:

         

        A photo of your rig

        A 360 version of the first video

         

        Without actually having experimented with all this yet, it looks like the tough part is dealing with the tilt-axis motor, which typically wants to sit NEXT TO the camera.  An ideal gimbal for a 360 camera would be entirely below it, and as small as possible.

         

        Watching your videos it looks like you placed a spacing block of some sort where the camera typically sits, then mounted the Samsung 360 on top of that.  Is that right?

         

        By the way, it seems to me that a gimbal for a 360 camera only needs to be a 2-axis.  There is no need for a yaw axis!

         

        Steve

          Here is my finished DJI Osmo Mobile prototype adapter "Kraken36v1" for Samsung Gear 360. I've made it from plywood and used screws + nuts as counterweights.

            This looks pretty good, maybe you can use 3d printer to make it in small quantities.

                Btw. I decided to sell my blueprints to DIY people who want to build their own Kraken36 adapter because I really don't have time to produce them anymore. Check out the link on Sellfy: https://sellfy.com/p/lqYJ
