On Topic 360 camera reviews?

Anybody here started using 360 degree cameras in your race car? I was thinking about getting one and wanted to know if anyone has advice on them. Price, image quality, user interface, editing capability, external mic and other features, battery life, etc. After a brief look around, the Rylo looks like an interesting option. I like how you can go into the 360 footage while editing, and pick out either stationary objects or even moving objects and have the editing software automatically frame that subject in a clip. Thanks again for any input.

I have used the Rylo. The stabilization is amazing. I have rollover footage and the vehicle literally “rolls” in the frame.

We are using HDX2 now and love it! It is GPS oriented and keeps track of G-force, gas, brake, etc. Live streaming of events is a option as well.

The 360 camera will be soon to add to our car as well. Memory on long races seems to be the issue. Thats why we went to race-keeper and get 30+ hours of recording!!!

Ugh. Who is going to watch 30 hours of recording? To me the best setup is one where you can tag loops for saving and have the rest of the card just get overwritten.

Raced baja much? jajaja. It breaks everything down into smaller sections for you and also allows you to view areas of the racecourse based on GPS location.!

Bringing back a slightly older thread as I got my first 360 camera recently. This is the GoPro Fusion, which now has been replaced by the GoPro Max. Anyway I shot some stuff at Ocotillo this weekend and stitched it together into the following vid. Not as simple as a traditional camera by any means.

First you gotta capture footage, which is easy since you don't really have to aim the camera. It captures everything.
Then gotta save the raw video into either 360 format (for viewing in 360 mode) or in overcapture, which lets you frame the video yourself in editing, which is what I did.

I used the app on my phone to view the files and save the ones I liked right there on my phone. Then the app lets me "frame" the video and save that as a separate file. You basically run the raw vid, and pan and tilt your phone at the action you want to capture while recording.

Anyway, once the files are saved I then exported them to my computer to edit with iMovie.

In short, the capturing process is super easy since you don't have to worry about pointing the camera, but the editing is far more laborious. I think the final product is worth it though.

Footage looks great! I suck at technology. I have a bunch of footage on Max from Rage at the River and I can’t even get it pulled up at all on the computer. View, edit, nothing!

When I first plugged the camera into my computer I was like why can’t I see the files? Then I realized the camera has to be turned on.
