I don't know about this model, but I have used cheap action cams before and the picture quality was pretty bad.

For the price it may still be fun to play around with, but I wouldn't expect it to be that great.

So I ordered this camera and just got it setup now. For a hundred bucks its not to bad and fun to use. The quality is normal for this generation of 360 cameras. The more expensive 400 dollar cameras are really no different than this ones quality.

I just need to find some good conversion programs and video editors. I heard that premier pro which is 20 bucks a month or power director which is around 70 bucks but on my computer with 360fly program for windows it takes like 45 minutes to convert a 360 panorama video to equirectangular 2:1 for youtube and youtube drops the quality a bit, but its not to bad for now.

Heres one of my first 360 videos at my apartment:
I don't think 360 videos are working on the forums, i'll have to ask neil about it.

That looks nice for the price! YT360 seems to be working on the forum for me.

I've been using Premiere Elements for my video editing. Not sure if it supports 360, it's a cut-down version of Premiere but it's only like $99 one-time fee.

Yesterday I went to West Ed Mall and did some 360 recording there, in phase 3 near the old ship deep sea dive and also in Galaxy Land where the famous Mind bender triple loop roller coaster is.
Enjoy the 360 vids!

Oh ya I also picked up a nice tripod for my camera at london drugs at the mall too, it was 125 bucks but regularly like $180 so I got a good deal and its a fold up portable one, worked out nice.
