How cool would it be to make your own (action) VR-movies and share it to the world. Today there are a few options but probably for professional users only since price tags are a bit high.
We are still waiting for an affordable 360° VR action for the masses. One thing is certain: you can watch it all with our own Freefly VR.
Here are a few players to follow:
This might be one of the affordable 360° action cams for VR in the near future.
With Sphericam, you push a button to record totally spherical video in high resolution 4K – the exact resolution needed for ideal performance on today’s VR headsets. It also looks amazing on a tablet or even in fullscreen on a desktop.
Other 360º cameras are full of compromises and are no fun to use. They either don’t deliver the resolution, or require lots of difficult tricks. None of them allow completely synchronized capture of every pixel in every direction.
Sphericam has been engineered from the beginning, with every factor in mind towards creating a correct, best-in-class spherical image, without any hassle, in a reliable and easy way.

There more candidates around with full VR cameras, just google some 😉 As for me, i am interested in the Sphericam V2, as a non professional movie-maker this looks promising and most affordable for now.
This VR-market is huge and will boom soon, more and more cameras will be available, be ready to make your own stunning VR-experience in the near future.
