It has been described as the bane of a VR video creator’s existence. The often dreaded stitching process. It’s gotten much better and easier as we progress forward from 32 GoPro’s to 16, then 8, then 4, and now with the Kandao Qoocam 8K Enterprise on 2 lenses and glorious 8K 10-bit 4:2:2 video. But still, there is that extra step and extra time spent stitching.
Maybe Not Anymore
What would you say if you didn’t have to stitch 360 images anymore? With the Atomos Ninja V+ and the Qoocam 8K Enterprise, you wouldn’t have to stitch again! How about 7.5 hours of record time on a 500GB Angelbird SSD drive with H.265 10-bit 4:2:2 color?
I touched on this in my previous review but so many people have asked about it that I wanted to dedicate this to this amazing side benefit of using the Qoocam 8K Enterprise with the Atomos Ninja V+.
Would you want to do this every time? Maybe or maybe not. But it sure is nice to be able to, plus what a marvelous extra bonus feature for your workhorse Atomos Ninja V+ and your Kandao Qoocam 8K Enterprise!
