Powerfull all-in-one 3D camera by WeMakeVR

We added a interesting new camera to our 360 camera list called WeMakeVR-Falcon. 

Some tech-specs: 

FPS: 60 and 80fps

Viewing angle:360-degree horizontal, 360-degree vertical, so fully upwards and downwards view, without a blind-spot

3D/stereo tech: Native stereoscopic 3D filming, no post-conversion

Resolution: 5500×2750

Power: On-board power-management for longer recording times.

The setups WeMakeVR uses during shoots vary; they got specific setups for filming inside cars, for high, elevated shots, for small, intimate scenes, for crowd-shots, etc. Again, depending on the needs of a specific project we either develop new solutions that we can later use for other projects, or they create one-off solutions if really needed.

WeMakeVR is a pioneering VRX-company (Virtual Reality Experience) that created a stereoscopic camera system and post-production workflow for VR-experiences. This enables us to produce groundbreaking filmed stereoscopic 3D VR experiences with full, unobstructed 360-degree horzontal view, 360-degrees vertical view, and all in stereoscopic 3D imageing.

Hacking the Xiaomi Yi Action Camera to get better quality

The Xiaomi Yi action camera was introduced in early 2015. It is similar in many respects to some of the popular GoPro cameras, but costs considerably less (about $70 as of August 2015). Unlike many of the cheap GoPro competitors, the Xioami Yi has an excellent sensor (16 megapixel Sony Exmor R BSI CMOS) and processor (Ambarella A7LS), and is capable of producing excellent images and video. Unfortunately, straight out of the box, its performance isn’t nearly as good as it could be.
