Join Paul Taggart for an in-depth discussion in this video Additional equipment needed for VR workflow, part of VR Video and Photography: Storytelling.
- So after doing a bit of scouting…with both the GoPro rig and the smaller fitted camera,…there's a couple problems that I realized.…Looking over that footage sort of helped me analyze…what they were, also, just in the field.…So these aren't necessarily just VR issues,…but they are shooting in really cold weather issues.…Not only am I working in sub-freezing temperatures,…but we're talking below zero temperatures, -15, -18…has been the worst day so far.…
So I've got power issues, and I have also realized…that I have stabilization issues, meaning the things…that I am attaching my camera, no matter which camera it is,…to, I'm getting some vibration in,…or my horizon line's a little off.…Initially, I was using this monopod,…which is really cool.…It's got these little legs that pop out.…I use these for video production all the time.…They're pretty nice.…And you can tighten this at the bottom,…and it can almost stay pretty steady.…When you look at that, that's pretty good.…But what I've noticed is when I extend this all the way…
