Ultimate 360 Camera Comparison: Stitching – Qoocam / Fusion / RYLO / Yi / Insta360 One / Mi Sphere


Welcome to this brand new series of 360
camera comparison we will test and compare the most popular 360VR cameras
and show you instead of telling you which camera is better than 360VR and
you can watch this in a VR headset right here the Oculus Go in today’s episode
we are going to look at the stitching quality both in app and in software
during post-production we will compare all these cameras you see right here
including the brand new Kandao Qoocam this is a 360 video and I highly
recommend you to watch this with your VR headset and here’s the instruction hey what’s up everybody it’s your boy
Hugh here from CreatorUp if you are wondering what camera I’m shooting this
right now I am shooting this with the Entaniya HAL 250 fisheye with the
Panasonic Lumix GH5 here this camera and all these cameras right here
they are all under $600 consumer cameras if you’re interesting in professional
VR cameras go check out my other series which is right here and let’s
jump right into the first camera so the first one we had the Kandao Qoocam
this is a brand new camera just released last week and you probably see
the test footage here first on this channel so let me just explain the set a
little bit so you know where to look for for stitching issue so why now
I’m facing forward through the camera if you see behind me you see a focus chart
in the distant so if you want to see how sharp this camera you can see if you
actually still see the focus on that distant let’s put it that way to follow
me on here here right now I’m in the stitch line area between the two lens
so I’m actually live moving around the stitch line so I keep walking if you see
in the back of the camera we have a mixed lighting scenario outside very
bright and inside where I start a video it’s actually dark and then on the other
side here is actually five feet away by the way if you don’t know the distance
between object to the camera if you look down you see there’s a measuring tape
right there from here from this point forward is zero or a way to the chair
there is seven feet and the camera to this focus chart is five feet away so
there’s a good one now because this chart is on top of the stitch
line on the right side stitch line and pay attention on the focus chart right
here see if you can still see sharp focus to find out how good is the
stitching on the stitch line with this camera and that is a really good way to
find out so again I am gonna keep going back to the other side and now I gotta
sit down and why now I’m gonna sitting two feet away from
camera that is actually really close to the comfort distance in a real life
scenario you never try to be that close to the camera but I’m trying lean to
water camera now I’m touching the camera and lean
back leaned toward camera again side
way so see my face to see if my facing I cut off is their optical flow
artifacts and all the other problem so now you see how good is the stitching of
this camera so now let’s move on to the next camera next up we have RYLO
it’s a new camera to me because I just got this camera so again
look at me look at the distant see the focal chart over there see how sharp at
this camera and follow me around and walk to the stitch line area so why now
I am in the RYLO stitch line area move around see how good is the
stitching in about five feet away from the camera but I keep walking now I’m in
a really bright area if you look at outside again it’s a mixed lighting
scenario outside is really bright in door it’s kinda dark but the best way to look
at the image the stitching quality of RYLO is actually right here look at
the focus chart again look at the right here see how good how sharp is the
image from this focus chart and is there any optical flow weirdness in here
but let me keep walking over and now I’m just sit down two feet away from the
right oh really close again you look down actually see the
measuring tap right here to see the distance a subject and the camera but
again now I’m going very very close to the RYLO touching the RYLO my nose
just touch to the RYLO my hand touch to the RYLO now I’m just
moving left moving right my big face let’s see how good is the stitching in
close distance for the RYLO I’m even go up on top my hand is on top right now
see how good is a top stitching upper RYLO as well so now you should see
the RYLO stitching quality so let’s go on to the next camera so next up we have
everybody favorite GoPro Fusion again we’re a distant object to see how good how
sharp with this camera this is very good camera capturing 5.2 K right now so right
now I am right on the stitch line of GoPro Fusion so again see me if you see
weird of this GoPro stitching and then I walk into the bright area here’s the
outside keep walking and now the best way to see stitching
quality is again look at are right here right on the stitch line
and check out how good is their focus on the chart and see how sharp is the image
and continue walking so circle back right here I’m going to sit down two
feet away again look at the measuring tape right here two feet away from the
camera just looking at camera a smile and slowly lean into the camera so close and touching the camera with my nose
very still very close and right you can smell my breath right
now you can’t really smell your virtual reality right okay so that is the GoPro Fusion in stitching so let’s go on to the next camera next up we have the Yi
which is among all these cameras I just test shot at highest resolution is 5.7 K. Again look at the distance chart to see how sharp at this
camera and then follow me again and go to the stitch line area where now I’m
right on the stitch line as you see you see how good is the
stitching and then I keep walking to a challenging outside scenario right here
which is pretty bright so look at how good is the mixed lighting scenario of
this camera and then again the most important part is look at the focus
chart right on a stitch line area to see how sharp is
sorry focus chart right here see if you can see a clearly of this resolution chart and then I’m gonna go
sit down right here again two feet away from the camera look at the cameras
smiling and then I’m slowly gonna lean into what a camera and touching the camera with my nose and then little bit far away in the camera now I look left I
look Lean back see how good is the
stitching of the Yi okay so now you see the Yi let’s move on to the next camera
the next one we have again another everybody favorite camera that
the Insta360 ONE which is very affordable and also really great camera and really
small camera as well so again look at the farthest end and see how good is the
focus distance and again and keep walking into this stitch line area on the left side
of the Insta360 One moving around see how good is the optical flow stitching
and now I’m walk into the light so I am probably blown and went out through the
outsides really bright so keep walking over here again look at the focus chart see
how good is the focus chart with the camera and get take a look and then
again I walk over right here sit about two feet away from the camera and then slowly lean toward the camera touching the camera at my nose you see the stitching the optical flow
stitching of the Insta360 ONE so let’s move on to the next camera last we have the xiaomi Mi Sphere which is a very very popular camera like about six
months ago and still very popular is the cheapest camera like that i would
suggest anybody should purchase if you want to get a first beginner 360
camera again look at the sharpness of the camera there long distance i walk
into the stitch line area skinny so the stitch is actually really
good supposed to be but i’m still look around and then you see the stitch line area again walk into the bright area under the sun mixed lighting scenario
keep walking the focus chart right here right here look at the focus chart look
at how good how sharp is the focus right here and then again sit down on the
chair and lean toward touching the camera great In conclusion all cameras tested have some sorts of optical flow artifacts
GoPro Fusion and Kandao Qoocam have a better safe distance around one foot the
fusion arguably has the best safe distance and you can go closer than one
foot which is very impressive consider the thick body the camera has the RYLO come close third and the Yi is number four for Insta360 ONE and the Mi Sphere you will need to stay more than three feet away from the stitch line to avoid the
stitching problem and Mi Sphere seem to be more than five feet
both GoPro Fusion and Qoocam have some kind of chromatic aberration and the
Qoocam is pretty obvious in terms of sharpness Rylo and Fusion a very sharp
around the stitch lines but they do not handle motion very well if you have a
moving object around stitch line even the object is far away if it caused some
kind of optical flow artifacts and Yi and Insta360 ONE is worse as
motion cost ghosting and very slow auto correction time so overall I think
Fusion and Qoocam has the best stitching RYLO come very close except
the weird optical flow drifting. Yi is not bad I would say #4 the
Insta360 ONE is not so good at optical flow stitching but again Fusion, Qoocam, Yi all rely on software stitching in post Insta360 One is
using a mobile phone to stitch so if we are talking about mobile stitching RYLO definitely it’s the best Mi Sphere well it’s time for you to upgrade your 360 camera if you have a Mi Sphere the industry moves so fast and six-month-old
tech is like six years old luckily the Mi Sphere is very cheap
