Since 1983, my world has revolved around photography. I have been very blessed to be able to do something that I enjoy and have passion for, and with new technology and gear advancements, the craft is a never ending learning adventure.
ShubertMedia Acquires the Ricoh Theta Z1 360 degree VR camera
The Theta Z1 is a new class of VR camera in that it has two 1″ sensors behind each lens capturing 21 megapixels of detail.
Oh, and it does RAW!
There will be an update for the Insta360 Pro to allow 180 degree 3D image output as well, but for now, this little beauty can do it and is much easier to get into tight spots.
VR is becoming almost common place and the media outlets are finding more and more ways to use it. If you haven’t seen the Oculus Go yet, find one and put it on, you will be amazed.
Keep an eye out for interesting works to follow with this and other VR devices to come.
ShubertMedia Acquires the 3DR Solo Drone
The 3DR Solo drone was a huge hit when it came out a few years ago. Unfortunately, the market was very competitive and the company was not able to survive, at least in the pro-summer one. What was left were many unsold Solo drones. Without support or further growth in the market on the Solo, many people thought they were a bad purchase, and if it was something you used daily in your business, you would have been right.
But when B&H in New York put these units on the market a few weeks ago for $129.00, almost $900 cheaper then when they launched, I thought hmmm, maybe this would be a good platform to mount my GoPro Fusion underneath.
I have to say, holding the Solo and its controller in my hands, this was a well thought out and beautiful piece of hardware. It is sad that they were not able to continue, but such is life. I hope to do some tests and be able to have a dedicated setup for my VRs in the sky.
Stay tuned and I will post the VRs once they happen, but even if they don’t, I am sure I will find a way to have fun with this drone.
