This GoPro Fusion is a beast. The housing is 2-3 times larger than even the largest other GoPro models, the battery is about twice as large, and the camera requires two micro-SD cards to even function (one card for the forward-facing lens, and one card for the rear-facing lens). The files are also HUGE (more on that later). Thankfully though, even though the camera is physically much larger than any other GoPro before it, it still uses the same versatile mounts.
The GoPro Fusion looks and feels like a camera that has potential, but GoPro has got to get better file compression and make the app/software integration better. I was totally unable to stitch and render any 360 video on my phone because of the massive space requirements, so I downloaded the Windows 10 desktop software. When I then tried to stitch and render a video of approximately 1.5 minutes in length, I could see that the resulting file would take hours to render (not including the time it'd take to then upload it later to YouTube) and would be nearly six gigabytes in size. To be clear, that's one huge video. This estimated size I was given for a 1.5 minute video with the GoPro Fusion was the same as the average rip of a 2-hour Blu-Ray video.
The sheer size of the files that the GoPro Fusion produces and the fact that the computer horsepower required to stitch and render them is quite significant makes this a no-go for me. Unless you're going to stick to filming videos of only a few seconds in length, any videos that are a few minutes in length will require hours of your time. That's just too heavy of a commitment for me to have the latest/greatest in "wow" factor videos. I'd rather invest the time and money in full-frame video from a mirrorless camera or using another GoPro action cam.
To be clear, this camera has awesome potential and the image quality is outstanding (it's an absolute game changer). But the technology is so cutting edge that I don't see this being a practical camera unless you're a pro or pro-am with hardcore hardware and a lot of time on your hands.
Only from reading, I understand that folks have had issues with the software. GoPro, you have an edge right now, don't blow it because of crappy software, if you cant do it yourself partner with someone, but the software is probably more important than the hardware in making compelling 360 videos and 2D videos from 3D source. Don't set the bar and then let others cross it because of inferior software. Bite the bullet and just fix it.
Amazon, I hope you are reading this, you would do buyers a great service if you could post a quick start guide for buyers and potential buyers, not a video for 360 fanboys, but a quick start guide for folks like me, who want to take immersive video while on vacation. I will try to put together a quick guide over the next couple of weeks and post it, but Amazon, you stand to make lots of sales if you can show how the 80% of folks can get what they need from this camera by understanding 20% of its capabilities.
I caved in and bought a Fusion after watching a few sample videos online. I'm nowhere near as extreme as most of the people in GoPro's official videos, but I am an avid photographer that is interested in new methods. Prior to this the only 360 photos I had taken were either from an LG 360 Cam (which was okay for the price) and through Google Photosphere with a phone (which takes awhile to make). So far I've only used the Fusion for stills, and the results have been great for the most part. The biggest flaws in the photos tend to happen around the two endpoints that separate each lens, where you will see more blur and occasional stitch errors, especially when dealing with solid lines. Aside from that, picture quality is astonishing with RAW and even with JPEG.
Another big thing to mention about this camera is connectivity with your devices: I'm often on the go and rely on my iPad or Android smartphone, so I have my options. What I've noticed is that each platform's GoPro app has problems that need to be addressed: iOS offers more support with many Apple devices and has the capability of sharing 360 video, but the app dropped connection often, the viewing of 360 content was difficult to focus on a single point, and there are some weird black and white lines that remain in the same spot on every photo; Android has very limited support for phones and doesn't allow sharing 360 video, but the app seemed to run better than the iOS version, didn't disconnect as much, and didn't have the black and white lines in the photos. I hope GoPro sorts this mess out for Android users as that is my primary device, and I will update my review when they do.
Tried out some video recording on a roller coaster with the Fusion mounted on my wrist, but haven't been able to upload it yet due to the enormous estimated file sizes and lack of time . The preview looks fairly stable except when dealing with steep drops, but it's still usable. 360 audio sounds just as I experienced the ride, so that's great.
Going back to the iOS and Android apps, I noticed that if you upload a 360 photo to Facebook with the iOS app, the black lines I mentioned earlier upload with it whereas the same photo uploaded via Android does not have the black lines. This is a little absurd, and adds to my gripes about the camera.
I've been rather busy with this camera and finally got the time to try out the Fusion Studio desktop app... and you'll need A LOT of time. I wasn't expecting a fast render considering that I'm using my 2011 MacBook Pro with an Intel Core i7 and 8GB RAM, but the time it takes to render and the file sizes it makes are massive: for a 1:36 5.2K30 video (1 minute and 36 seconds) using the default Facebook settings, it took at least 20 minutes to reach 17% before I fell asleep and had a file size of 10.55GB in the end. There are other render settings to use for editing in Adobe Premiere, YouTube, or Vimeo that I haven't tried yet, but Facebook has the lowest settings so expect more time to do any of those other ones. On top of all this, you'll need a stellar internet upload speed to share these videos due to their huge file sizes (as of this writing my video has been trying to upload to Facebook for about 15 minutes at 75% completion). From what I've read is that Fusion Studio does a much better job at stitching than on the mobile app, but at the cost of much slower speeds.
On the positive side, the video quality looks absolutely gorgeous. I have yet to try a night time video for the reasons listed above, and will update my review again when ready. I'd currently put this camera at 3.5 stars mainly for the software problems.
The Android app recently got updated to include Overcapture editing. I tried it out with a 2 minute clip of me riding King Arthur Carrousel at Disneyland, and was slightly annoyed by the process. You start by framing your shot with either landscape or square video using your finger or gyroscope, press the record button, and make adjustments as the video plays. While this sounds simple enough, the framing part is executed poorly: I was not able to maintain a fixed frame as the video automatically slowly rotated. Using your finger to constantly adjust the frame makes the footage look jittery, so to compensate for both of these problems I stood up and spun my body with the rotations of the gyroscope to keep the footage roughly around where I wanted it to be. The end result has okay stability, but I know it could be a lot better if GoPro let us pick a fixed position that won’t automatically move unless I tell it to.
