To reply to your points 1 and 2:
Low light performance can be massively improved by using a monopod or tripod.
I use a Sirui P-224S monopod: https://www.google.c...?q=SIRUI P-224S
It's maximum height is 160cm and it has a (detachable) three legged base.
A monopod lets the Gear 360 use slower shutter speeds and that improves low light performance.
Also true HDR is possible with a monopod, see this shot i took in a dark part of a castle wall:
With just my monopod that shot would not properly expose - the walls would be too underexposed while the light areas (with sky) were too overexposed.
So i took 3 shots at -/+1EV and used HDR Projects (software) to stitch the shots together.
The result is vastly superior to the (single) non HDR shot.
Hi Warwound, wow that's a very impressive shot. Thank you for sharing the insights of how you took that shot. I've done it with my DSLR but never would have though about changing ev on the Samsung Gear and merge the photos in post.
our church plans to buy a 360° Camera for our youth services.
1.)I'm a bit unsure about the lowlight performance and how to use it in a "professional way".
2.) Are there good mounting options to bring it up to 1,5m?
3.) How good is it usable without a Samsung phone? I have a Huawai P8 lite. (want to use it with the App by the XDR Developers)
4.) I'm also thinking about Livestreaming to facebook. Is this even possible with the inofficial app?
5.) Does the phone need to be near to the camera after its setup?
6.) Is there a good way to charge it while using it?
Hi Catcher_10, I will try to answer questions 3 to 6;
3. You can use it with the app available on the xda developers forum here http://forum.xda-dev...device-t3400383. A Samsung Galaxy S7 will probably be faster in stitch though.
4. There is no way to do a livestream at this moment.
5. The camera can be 50 metres separated from the phone. But that is a theoretical number. I've taken pictures with a separation of about 20 metres and did not have a problem.
6. You will have the wires in the photograph i suppose.
