The Talking Head

I bought an inexpensive 360 camera last year, and while it’s gotten some good use as a 360 still camera, I really have not done much of anything with it as a video camera. I made a couple of handheld GoPro videos that I wasn’t happy with at all. 

After learning that Samsung has added stabilization to their $100 USD Gear 360 (2017) camera, I wanted to give it a try. It works really well. For walking around with the camera on the end of a two to three foot long pole, the stabilization works amazingly well. 

My very first Gear 360 test video. 

I’m not entirely happy with the audio quality, but that’s going to be true for most small cameras. That’s why external audio recorders are so popular with Vloggers who make vlogs that you actually want to listen to. 

I’m dropping this video here so I’ve something to compare to if I decide to make future videos. All in all though, for a walking and talking style of video, I’m pretty happy with it.
