On the Gopro Fusion, I have edited videos using the ipad app. If you stand and hold the ipad and move it around to frame your shot then it's easy to keep the horizon level and to keep a specific object centred in the frame.

FIsheye distortion is a matter of choice when choosing your zoom. It's tempting to zoom out to show more in the image. If you zoom out you get fisheye. The solution is simple. Don't zoom out so far. Just accept the normal equivalent view that you would get with a non-360 camera. You can still use the 360 image to select the direction you want to shoot.

You can also use the distortion to create images that would not be possible otherwise. Here's me paragliding with a vulture.


A personal opinion, I hate hate hate line mount shots. The result looks like crap. You can't see anything useful.

Disagree Ozbungy, I have lately found the linecams gives you EXQUISITELY good pictures very often :thumb:

Opposed to helmetcams or chestcams, that gives you almost ZERO unfortunately… :roll:

Two examples, my friend Ralf out here in Capetown:


And myself a few weeks ago here in Denmark:


On a foilboard having fun in waves:


Or just bashing around in my local homebreak here:


Going for some aerial spray


Not bad angles, is it?
