One the biggest limitation in VR/360 cinematography has been motion. The very nature of VR makes it difficult to explain that dude that’s always next to the camera when it moves. The solution: build a remote-controlled, wheeled robot into the base system. That’s just what VroomCam did.
The key was to make the movement feel as natural as human movement, to really sell the feeling of “being there.” This video explains how VroomCam have created both terrestrial and aerial systems that address exactly that.
Imagine having a better view than front row tickets while moving with the game. Nonstop.
Whether a game or a concert, get ready to experience locomotive virtual reality and augmented reality capture by being continuously next to the action through robotics and artificial intelligence. Combining our patent pending gesture replicating technology and light field camera-ready platform, VRoomCam is the world’s first automated and locomotive capture system for sports and entertainment. Goodbye dolly, cranes, jibs and tripods (fixed cameras lead to less than 1 minute viewer time and engagement, not to mention the stratospheric cost of setup and post-production nightmare).
About a year and a half ago I [Brian Bloss] got the idea to combine passion for time-lapse with my passion for aerial cinematography. When I started I had no idea what I was doing and what was possible. I have been waiting to release this until its perfect. I realized its never going to be as perfect as I want it to be. There were many challenges along the way and I learned allot. I know many people will ask how? I am not ready to dive into that quite yet. I am looking forward to doing to doing more lapses with higher wealth SLRs and the new generation of drones. This was shot with the DJI Phantom 3 Pro and the Phantom 4. I look forward to hearing what you think.
Have you seen what the Panasonic VariCam LT can produce at 5000 ISO. This has to be the new low light King of all cinema cameras. Maybe not capable in the darkest conditions as the Sony A7s, but certainly a much more practical solution for serious productions.
#Zacuto have updated their popular VCT #camera plates to make them easier to adjust, without having to dig into the unit with a screwdriver. Following customer feedback rear rod mounts are no longer screw-in and the gel shoulder pad is now one piece. The VCT Pro is going to be available in June for $725 US.
