360 video is a completely new experience because you can move the camera around. This opens new ways of sharing experiences and makes you feel like you’re part of what you’re watching. It’s a step towards even more immersive experiences. — Mark Zuckenberg.

Nikon is annoucing a brand new camera line to keep up with competitors. KeyMision360 is a capture action camera that can shoot in every direction. The product is aimed at the professional market, and competitors like goPro should take note. It safe to say that the bigscompanies are taking a swing at 360 VR cameras.  Now lets wait t see sample videos and technical specs. We have to wait and see.  🙂

Star Wars 360 making of video

Recently I was able to see in action how a 360 movie is shot. The crew had 4 different 360 rigs. 6xHero4 Sessions rigged together using a custom 3D printed holder. Thanks to CoOperate Orchestra  and a bunch of passionate Star Wars fans the shoot was directed in with 360 video in mind. Everytime the director had to tell people what to do and hide from the camera’s view.  Darth Vader (maestro), Storm Troopers and many other cool characters that showed up on set. The 360 video is produced by VMG ad agency .
See the making of below:

The 360 footage is currently in post production and link will be posted here anytime soon. Stay Tuned!

360 video format used by Facebook

Facebook has taken a different approach to the 360 format. They basically split the image into small rectangles and the FB player arranges them in order into a seamless 360 experience. Currently works on Android with iOS version coming in the next months.

Still waiting for them to introduce 3D-360 video and watching how fast the technology evolve makes me think it will really be soon.
