Description

With the touch of a button, the Vuze XR transforms from a 360° camera to a VR180 camera, enabling content creators to spontaneously tell any story, from every angle. Vuze XR is a dual 3D 180⁰ and 2D 360⁰ VR camera – capturing full spherical or stereoscopic 3D half spherical videos and photos. Videos captured in up to 4K/30fps are stitched in camera and 4K/60fps and 5.7K/30fps media can be stitched and edited with Vuze VR Studio software, developed for use with the camera. Vuze XR is provided together with the Vuze XR App and Vuze VR Studio. Vuze XR App can be used to remotely control the camera, manage, edit and share media stored on a removable SD card. Vuze VR Studio is used to edit captured media using spherical editing tools and to render and stitch media using proprietary stitching technology. Image quality comes naturally to the Vuze XR thanks to its 5760 x 2880 max resolution camera system. Using two Sony 12MP IMX-378 image sensors, in parallel, combined with 2x F/2.4 210⁰ fisheye lenses, the built-in digital processor delivers stunning image quality at the touch of a button. Engaging & growing your live audience has never been more achievable. Streaming either 360 or VR180 directly to YouTube and Facebook is a breeze via the Vuze Cast mobile app, which seamlessly connects to your social media networks; delivering your audience a unique perspective that is unmatched when compared to traditional mobile streaming. Tucked inside the Vuze XR are the image and audio automation tools explicitly designed to simplify the photo and video taking process. Advanced features such as Video-Stabilization, In-Camera Stitching (4k 30fps), Auto Exposure, Hybrid Function, and 360⁰ 3D Audio all work in parallel to provide industry-leading picture quality and sound. Directors Cut is found inside the Vuze XR Mobile App for Android and iOS. This dedicated set of storytelling tools provides quick and intuitive access to stabilization control, cropping, little planet, fly in/out effects, photo and video filters, virtual stickers, color adjustments, and audio enhancements. Tell your story bigger and better right from your mobile phone. Create incredible full resolution, VR experiences, with the supplied Vuze VR Studio Software. This powerful computer solution makes short work of intricate stitching and image enhancement tasks. Available for download, in both Mac and PC systems formats, you’ll experience and intuitive user interface and seamless workflow for 4k 60fps and 5.7k 30fps content. Use advanced camera controls and professional file formats to override automatic camera settings; fueling your creative process. Complete with the Adobe Digital Negative (DNG) format, the Vuze XR gives you manual control over Exposure Compensation, ISO, Shutter Speed, and a useful Capture Delay self-timer giving you time to get in or out of the picture. Get the "impossible" shot with the Optional Vuze XR Magic Selfie Stick, which seemingly disappears from the camera's field of view. The nesting design quickly converts from a compact, easy to carry, accessory to a long-reaching handle providing new perspectives and extreme camera positions. Complete with a standard 1/4"-20 screw mount it's easy to attach your Vuze XR and get into the action. The optional Waterproof Dive Case is designed specifically for the Vuze XR Camera. Made from a clear poly-carbonate the Sports Case secures and protects your camera from water damage at depths to 30 meters (100 feet). Its two large polished domes cover the wide angle of the fish-eye lenses and allow an unimpeded 360° view in the water.

abunda_amazon_reviews I was disappointed with this camera. I don't know where to start.. The 5.7k/4k resolution claim is very arguable. Indoor videos are impossible with this camera. The videos come out noisy and blury, not just in the vr headset - but on the raw files. This camera is VERY bad without enormous lighting (sometimes even with it) . I didn't like that I need to have a phone app installed and connected via wifi at all times in order to get any functionality out of this camera. I did not like the manual being a one 6" sheet of paper (with maybe 150 words), not nearly describing the entire ins and outs so that i have to search their website / Google for answers. I didn't like having to youtube how to do a firmware update on their camera because their website didn't adequately explain it. I certainly did not like the multiple beepings.. on every.. single.. click.. I felt as if I could've produced the same quality of performance of the 180 3d from the Vuze XR with 2 off-brand GoPro cameras and a stereoscopic frame. I really wanted to like this camera, I made excuses to ignore my reasoning. I thought - maybe it's the firmware or maybe there is a way to change the video quality in the phone app but no.. In the end after having everything at its highest setting I realized this is just not what I expected. In my honest opinion it's not worth the price.;;Reviewed in the United States on February 11, 2019;;1.0 out of 5 stars;;Is this really worth over 400 dollars?;;Lauren C;;/gp/customer-reviews/RI7LKMSMPANNQ/ref=cm_cr_dp_d_rvw_ttl?ie=UTF8&ASIN=B07J68LR1X;;;So, Having used this camera for a week, here are my thoughts: Stabilization is a software effect while rendering, not something that happens in camera. The camera supposedly has a 6 axis gyroscope and accelerometer, but as far as I can tell that data is not used in stabilization. Stabilization for 360 videos is a crapshoot compared to Insta360 onex. The one-x seems to produce gimbal like stabilization, but this seems to produce jittery and artifact filled stabilization. Maybe I am being overly critical but vuze's software stabilization just doesn't compare. VR180 stabilization is just as bad, however for a consumer camera I'm not sure I have much else to compare this to at this price point. Basically unless you mount on a tripod you don't want to be filming VR180. 360 videos you can somewhat get away with mediocre stabilization, but with vr180 the footage needs to be smooth or else it will be blurry in a headset. Now, I am confident that the vuze team is working on better stabilization, but it is just not there yet in their software/firmware. Video quality: there's sometimes a lot more noise than I would like when shooting in 4k60fps. I think this too is a software issue, as they just need to add in better noise filtering algorithms. You still can't shoot in raw mode. This camera uses the same image sensors as the Pixel 1 smartphone, so I expect the quality to be pretty good (the original pixel can shoot some amazing videos). Stitching of 360 videos: mediocre. It isn't bad, but you can DEFINITELY see the stitch lines, and it definitely misaligns sometimes. You can somewhat adjust in post using vuze studio, but it isn't very user friendly. 3D and 360 photo quality: "18MP" means nothing here. The photo quality is crap when viewed in a VR headset. Do not buy for taking 360 or 3D180 photos. I don't understand why the photo quality is comparatively worse: perhaps because it compresses the photos on the camera itself, no raw mode. If we could tweak the quality of the compression that would be good. TLDR: stabilization is not good, and one of the major reasons I will return this camera. Software/firmware is still immature compared to other product offerings in the same class. Hardware is top notch for this price range, but without the software support it won't reach its full potential. This feels like a rushed product software wise, and it needs more time in the oven. If you absolutely need to take 5.7k VR videos, this is your only option in this price range and hardware wise stands above everything else. But if I were you I would wait a good 6 months for the Vuze team to perfect the software/firmware. If you're a prosumer and edit in Adobe CC, then you'll get by ok on this. But if you're like me and just want a way to quickly share VR, this is not very user friendly.;;Reviewed in the United States on February 16, 2019;;3.0 out of 5 stars;;Good hardware, mediocre software and firmware.;;Chris;;/gp/customer-reviews/R75CVDOO70GYL/ref=cm_cr_dp_d_rvw_ttl?ie=UTF8&ASIN=B07J68LR1X;;;360 cameras can produce some really creative and beautiful shots, the problem for me is that the resolution hasn't been high enough nor easy enough to use until now.

Only downside is the selfie stick I have (a $5 cheapo one) isn't strong enough when fully extended so I ordered a new stronger one. I would like to see an adjustable shutter and self timer for photo mode, it seems a bit long to me but it has helped to get things in position when using a selfie stick, just depends on your shooting mode if it bothers you or not. Great buy, definitely worth it and would recommend to anyone interested in creative video and photo creation!

I felt as if I could've produced the same quality of performance of the 180 3d from the Vuze XR with 2 off-brand GoPro cameras and a stereoscopic frame. I really wanted to like this camera, I made excuses to ignore my reasoning. I thought - maybe it's the firmware or maybe there is a way to change the video quality in the phone app but no.. In the end after having everything at its highest setting I realized this is just not what I expected. In my honest opinion it's not worth the price.

Good hardware, mediocre software and firmware.
So, Having used this camera for a week, here are my thoughts: Stabilization is a software effect while rendering, not something that happens in camera. The camera supposedly has a 6 axis gyroscope and accelerometer, but as far as I can tell that data is not used in stabilization. Stabilization for 360 videos is a crapshoot compared to Insta360 onex. The one-x seems to produce gimbal like stabilization, but this seems to produce jittery and artifact filled stabilization. Maybe I am being overly critical but vuze's software stabilization just doesn't compare. VR180 stabilization is just as bad, however for a consumer camera I'm not sure I have much else to compare this to at this price point. Basically unless you mount on a tripod you don't want to be filming VR180. 360 videos you can somewhat get away with mediocre stabilization, but with vr180 the footage needs to be smooth or else it will be blurry in a headset. Now, I am confident that the vuze team is working on better stabilization, but it is just not there yet in their software/firmware. Video quality: there's sometimes a lot more noise than I would like when shooting in 4k60fps. I think this too is a software issue, as they just need to add in better noise filtering algorithms. You still can't shoot in raw mode. This camera uses the same image sensors as the Pixel 1 smartphone, so I expect the quality to be pretty good (the original pixel can shoot some amazing videos). Stitching of 360 videos: mediocre. It isn't bad, but you can DEFINITELY see the stitch lines, and it definitely misaligns sometimes. You can somewhat adjust in post using vuze studio, but it isn't very user friendly. 3D and 360 photo quality: "18MP" means nothing here. The photo quality is crap when viewed in a VR headset. Do not buy for taking 360 or 3D180 photos. I don't understand why the photo quality is comparatively worse: perhaps because it compresses the photos on the camera itself, no raw mode. If we could tweak the quality of the compression that would be good. TLDR: stabilization is not good, and one of the major reasons I will return this camera. Software/firmware is still immature compared to other product offerings in the same class. Hardware is top notch for this price range, but without the software support it won't reach its full potential. This feels like a rushed product software wise, and it needs more time in the oven. If you absolutely need to take 5.7k VR videos, this is your only option in this price range and hardware wise stands above everything else. But if I were you I would wait a good 6 months for the Vuze team to perfect the software/firmware. If you're a prosumer and edit in Adobe CC, then you'll get by ok on this. But if you're like me and just want a way to quickly share VR, this is not very user friendly.

Best Mobile Phone Accessory Hands Down
360 cameras can produce some really creative and beautiful shots, the problem for me is that the resolution hasn't been high enough nor easy enough to use until now. I saw the XR online back in September and got really excited by the fact that 5.7K looks great but it also does 3D video, which turns out works great with my Oculus Go. Two cameras in one is a great concept and I can fit it in my pocket. First day I got it I took the dog for a walk and shot some 360 photos and videos then tried out the VR180, really happy about the results. The fact that I only need my mobile phone is amazing to me. I do have a VR laptop for gaming, but it isn't needed to do edits and sharing. The shots you take with the XR can't be done from a mobile phone camera,. This is why I called it the ultimate mobile phone accessory since it gives me 2 more shooting modes, 4 all together with the mobile camera and selfie camera. I watched some tutorial videos from Ben Claremont and Creatorup for some creative tips, which I highly recommend. Only downside is the selfie stick I have (a $5 cheapo one) isn't strong enough when fully extended so I ordered a new stronger one. I would like to see an adjustable shutter and self timer for photo mode, it seems a bit long to me but it has helped to get things in position when using a selfie stick, just depends on your shooting mode if it bothers you or not. Great buy, definitely worth it and would recommend to anyone interested in creative video and photo creation! Hope this helped.
