Boston Freedom (Marijuana / Cannabis) Rally - Shot with the Samsung Gear 360 2017

First time using the Samsung Gear 360 2017 edition. First time using a 360 camera period.

Day 1

Day 2

I actually bought it off someone in Craig's List for $100 unopened (I do wish I had something like the Insta360 Pro for the added resolution). I figured it would be a way to fool around with 360 videos. It's fairly simple to use. You can either use the stitching software that goes with it for your computer or just use the app on the phone. If you are using the phone to view the footage live while you shoot, you might as well stitch using the phone as well. Once your done shooting a 360 video, hit save on the phone and the video will be transferred to your phone all stitched up. That's it. That can take a while for longer clips. Now you'll be able to edit it on any software program like you would any other video file. Once you have an edited piece, you then use a program to inject metadata onto the video that tells YouTube that it's a 360 video. Also fairly simple. You just tell the program what file you want to use and then say where you want the new file to go. https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/6178631?hl=en If you upload the stitched file directly to YouTube, you don't have to inject metadata. It's when you edit the videos together unless the editing software does it already.

For people who want to shoot a 360 video on a tripod. Remove the handle or put it in the down position of your able to. The less it's in the shot, the better. For the tripod I used, the handle isn't able to get out of the way unfortunately.
ballen420 and cardoski like this.

For a tripod, use a regular portable photography one, those usually don't have handles, just a ball head. I use a Manfrotto Befree with the central column raised. The 2017 version of the gear360 has a tripod mount at the base, so it is easy to set up.

A photo tripod with a ball head is what I'm actually planning on getting. I've seen many that can be converted to a monopod such as this for example.

Ended up getting this BC Master carbon fiber tripod which can convert to a monopod.
http://www.bc-master.com/product/2-i...-tripod-tc533m

The tripod extends to nearly 79" and if you convert it to a monopod, it's around 81 and a half inches. When it's all folded up, it can actually fit in my professional camera bag.

The tripod I got is big enough as is but I'm thinking about getting this carbon fiber tripod extender. It adds an extra 10" to 16.9".

Here's a few quick photos taken with my phone. You can clearly see how big this thing can be next to the door.
