Yes, this is a serious investment for people and companies serious about VR video. But it's from the one company that specializes in "i the round" videography, and makes no compromises in image quality, remote control, and wireless monitoring of your glamorous shots! Meant to be used with a tripod or gimbal, the results are just stunning!
If you want to make or cement your reputation in 360˚ VR video, this is the way to go. It is an investment that will pay itself off quickly, because your demos and projects will provide indelible proof of your power and prowess in this video niche. And that means market leadership in this current niche.
I like the fact that this unit provides the best high end results you can find in a single unit. And the free extras from hardware to software make this a real value! Take it from a guy who got into timelapse early-- this is a field where expertise and serious looking gear make a big difference; you can look at three years of success before bid price becomes an object.
