Samsung 2017Gear 360 user - disappointed

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!  I'm new to 360 cameras and I got my gear 360 and enjoyed it until yesterday.  It works great during the day, but in low light it is absolutely terrible...unless I did something wrong.

I recorded part of a concert using the rear lense so my thumb could cover the bright LED as to not disturb anyone.  I recorded in 1920x1080 / 30fps and i was so disappointed with the results.  It was so grainy and far away it was like I took the video with a cheap flip phone. My flip video recorder (remember those) would have done better.  I was so excited to use this thing for something important and almost teared up when I saw the low light results.  I should've used my Note 8 instead.  Is there something I did wrong or is this something I could expect from this unit during concert lighting.  The results also looked farther away than where i was sitting.  Is there software that I should be using other than what came with the 360 app.  Should I have used both lenses on instead?  I'm sorry to vent, but I needed to turn somewhere for some technical help.  

On a positive note, the sound was really good surprisingly.

      When I bring video from Gear 360 2017 version into Action Director the result is always a black screen with two lines (one vertical; one horizontal). Does anyone know what is causing this?

      I wanted to start a thread where people could post 360 cameras/rigs that they are selling.  Please visit this thread if you are interested in buying or selling a used 360 rig.  
       
      I will start this off with our 360 Rize 7 camera rig.  If you are interested, take a look here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/360RIZE-Pro7-v2-360-Degree-Video-Gear-w-7-GoPro-Lot-/132166536135?hash=item1ec5bd4bc7:g:KrgAAOSw3ZRY-lFN
