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?
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.
