This is a 4xGoPro rig for 360 video. It uses 4 hacked GoPros with custom 220 degree FOV lenses. The main features of this rig are:
- > 4K output
- All cameras shoot at 4K so final image sharpness is great
- Huge overlap, thus very flexible stitching
- Access to all ports (however, shutter button is not accessible so you have to use the control -which you are using anyway if you are shooting VR)
- Fast assembly
- Top 1/4” screw that you can use to put an extra accessory
Also, I 3D printed a small accessory that allows to fix the lens with a 3mm screw. Anyone who has used hacked GoPros will find this useful as it is easy to lose focus when removing the lens cap.
Assembling this rig is extremely easy:
Here is an example footage of this rig with a quick stitch using MistikaVR:
And here is a screen capture of how the huge overlap of this rig allows very “flexible” seam lines (again, using MistikaVR)
