    Hey guys,

    I’m trying to get into VR filmmaking, and am wondering which of the more affordable prosumer / consumer VR cameras would you recommend that I buy to be able to make videos that companies might be interested in. Which cameras are considered professional/decent today from the point of view of someone looking to hire me as a VR filmmaker for documentaries/music videos/shorts?

    Thanks,

    Daniel

    Hi Daniel,

    First of all, buying some gear will not make you a media producer, I hope that you already have experience in filmmaking.

    I never start an analysis with a price. You should list the features you need. Here is a good article to start your exploration.

    I know that vice have rolled out the Samsung 360 cameras. They are inexpensive and the footage so far looks impressive. You should check out some of the 360 stories they have covered. The main factor when deciding on the 360 was the ease of use. They wanted something that journalists can use in the field with minimum tech knowledge. The struggle journalists will find is directing the narrative when the viewer has free range on where to look.

    Most of the consumer level 360 cameras have too low of a visual quality for freelance work.

    I’ve got the Vuze camera which records 8k and outputs 4k per eye and even that has that I feel is still not good enough of a video quality.
