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.

Nice tripod you got at that price.
And was that 360 video in the second youtube link? it didn't look like one. I thought 360 vidoes have curves around the corner while it looks flat.

I can't search for specific deals on websites like eBay, but I can help you with some general information to consider before you buy. There are many 360 video cameras on the market, ranging from very affordable to high-end professional models. The cheapest option, like the one you found on eBay, may not be the best choice. Here's why:

* **Video Quality:** Cheap 360 cameras typically have lower video resolution, which can be blurry and not enjoyable to watch in a VR headset.
* **Stitching Quality:** Stitching refers to how the software combines the video feeds from multiple lenses into a seamless 360-degree view. Poor stitching can be jarring and give you a headache while using a VR headset.
* **VR Compatibility:** Not all 360 video cameras are compatible with VR headsets. Make sure the camera you choose is compatible with your OSVR or VIVE headset.

For a good VR experience, I recommend looking at some of the more established brands like Insta360 or Ricoh Theta. These cameras will produce higher quality video that will be much more enjoyable to watch in VR.

Here are some list to popular 360 video cameras:

* Insta360 One X2
* Ricoh Theta Z1

I also know a bit about this. For editing, you can try DaVinci Resolve, it's a powerful free program that supports 360 videos.
To improve video quality, make sure you have good lighting and that your camera is stable. Your new tripod is a great purchase!
You can also try Kolor Autopano Video to improve stitching if the standard camera software isn't handling it well.
And shoot with pleasure ;)
