360 Video of Las Vegas drive during CES. Camera was attached with a sturdy 3 suction cup mount that has been successfully used over 100mph speeds in the past. However, as we were using a brand new 2015 Mustang, with freshly waxed roof, the suction cups didn’t hold so well. Another reason might be the vibrations and flexible roof material.
That said… this shot documents the end of our drive with an epic failure. Still we were really lucky to get the cameras back from the high traffic at the Strip.
Lesson learned: Always secure your mounts and be sure there is no wax/polish in your mounting area.
Watch and enjoy 😉
Special thanks goes to Freedom360 for such a sturdy rig. Only couple of scratches and that’s it – nothing really broke on the rig. What amazing and clever design.
We would also like to thank GoPro for such a tough camera’s. 6 of them on board and only some scratches on the lenses plus one ”tarmac blasted” corner on the camera.
In addition, we’d like to thank Kolor for nice stitching software, which helped us on creating and sharing this experience to you. With the latest version of their AutoPanoVideo 2.0 I can stabilize the video and make sure the horizon is in level (whenever the camera is not rolling on the street :)). And now, the rendered videos are ready for YouTube 360 without any modifications.
Thank you Finwe Ltd for developing such a powerful mobile 360 video playback engine. This is where I really want to play my 360 content. Check out Finwe’s latest creations from http://www.finwe.fi/apps
Finally, last but not least. Thank you Ryan. Without you I would have lost my gear. I would have been impossible to get out of the car and rescue the stuff.
