These cameras, like pretty much all video cameras, do record sound. And since each one has 4 tiny microphones, the quality is not that bad, but it’s still not as good as you’ll get from a separate sound recorder.

Mark reviews the pros and cons of shooting sound with 360° video.

There's a significant blind spot between the cameras…to hide these in.…You can adjust how the shots stitch together…in post as well to help hide them even more.…Now, in our current situation,…we really want to be able to hear my voice…above the noise of this cafeteria.…So, I'm wearing a radio mic that's feeding it…to a sound recorder that's hidden behind the A camera.…Now, just like with any double system sound recorder,…once the recorders are going…
This course explores some of the current camera options available to the 360° filmmaker, their relative strengths and weaknesses, possible applications of the 360° format, in-depth workflows to get you from shooting to finished project, and the best methods for sharing and viewing your 360° videos. Mark W. Gray helps you assemble and edit a final, polished 360° video using Final Cut Pro, but once you have mastered the basics, you can apply the lessons to your own preferred tools and workflows.
