Stabilization Comparison Of The GoPro Fusion vs Hero 6 Black Mounted In Karma Grip

Published

on

I thought it would be interesting to do a stabilization test of the GoPro Fusion versus the Hero 6 Black mounted in the Karma Grip. So basically a test of a mechanical gimbal verses 360 software stabilized video. There are pro’s and con’s to both setups. First off importing and editing the footage of the Hero 6 Black is very simple as the video recorded is already stabilized and ready to be edited. The video files on the GoPro Fusion have to be imported, stitched and then rendered to a 16:9 video which can take quite some time depending on the length of the clip. So when it comes to ease of use the mechanical stabilizer is the winner. Another thing to consider is using an action camera such as the Hero 6 Black will produce higher quality videos.

However when it comes to usability, ease of mounting, a 360 camera such as the GoPro Fusion or the Rylo 360 definitely has the advantage and sometimes that is the deciding factor. Of course we all want the best quality video we can get but there are those situation were using a mechanical gimbal such as the Karma Grip just isn’t practical or even possible. Using a 360 camera opens up a whole new avenue to capture stabilized video during activities that used to be impossible. When you also factor in that many 360 cameras are waterproof such as the Fusion or have a waterproof housing that can also be a deciding factor. Most mechanical gimbals are not waterproof with the exception of a few and they are extremely delicate and can not be used in some situations.

I think we are just at the tip of the iceberg on what 360 technology will bring us in the future and I can really see it becoming a mainstream way to capture action video over the traditional action camera and gimbal setup. What are your thoughts? Watch our video as we show a side by side stabilization comparison of the GoPro Fusion and the Hero 6 Black mounted in the Karma Grip.

Create Your Own DIY Double Ended Extension Pole

Published

on

In this video I show you how to make your own DIY double ended extension pole for GoPro’s and 360 cameras. Now you may be asking why on earth would you want a double ended extension pole? Well the answer is very simple. It allows you to film with two camera (one at a time) without having to constantly fiddle around swapping camera and wasting time. For me this invention came from necessity. I like to film my travels and adventurers with both my GoPro and my Rylo 360 camera. I was finding it frustrating to have to carry so much gear and was constantly swapping the cameras on different handles and poles. I came up with this solution and it does work extremely well. Now when I am out adventuring all I need to do is flip the pole around and can easily shoot with any camera I wish, and I only have one pole to carry around with me. Watch our video on how to create this handy extension pole and what parts are needed for this DIY project.

Latest Rylo 360 Camera Firmware Update: Remote, Timer and 180 Degree Mode

Published

on

In this video we go over some of the new features that Rylo introduced with their latest firmware update for the Rylo 360 camera. Some long overdue features were added and to me the most important one was a photo timer. Up until now there was no way to set a timer which is so important when taking 360 photos. A timer allows you to compose your shot. It gives you time to extend your extension pole if needed and even get out of the shot altogether if mounted on a tripod and you are taking landscape photos. The new firmware update also adds a feature that turns you phone into a remote so you can stop/start recording from a distance or take snap shots. Another interesting feature they included is a new 180 degree mode. This essentially turns off one of the lenses and is ideal for those who mount the Rylo in a chest harness style mount. One lens is covered anyways so why record from it. Some great new updates from Rylo.
