Its here! I’m releasing it to the public so more people can try out the rig and see te results.
Project is currently documented on http://360cameraonline.com/
360 video currently is a hard thing to pull of and requires investing in multiple cameras. This concept saves a lot of money considering its using mobius camera instead of expensive GoPro’s (most 360 3D printed rigs are based on GoPro).
3D Printing a camera rig saves a lot of time, and its super hard to manually make this rig so that each lens is exactly at a 51 degree. The rig enables to shoot panoramic 360 3D footage. Lenses are rotated horizontaly for greater field of view.
Based on Jim Watters design
Prints fine on a standard 20mm x 20mm build plate.
Print stil files.
Buy 14 cheap mobius cameras with wide Lens B + 14 exenstion cables for lens seperation the body of the cameras are out of the way – more compact camera
Put everything together
Add one or two GoPro for top view strap with rubber bands
Figure out a way to start recording all at the same time or use Mobius continuous recording. After 5 minutes of run time all the footage should be in sync. If anyone has an idea how to do this by arduino or any other way let me know!
