The hinges and clasps on these external doors seem to hold well and can be completely removed if necessary.
At this stage, you can choose the type of codec (H.264, CineForm '422 High' or ProRes 422), resolution, and audio format (stereo, 360 audio) you want.In order to test the Fusion, GoPro sent us two 32GB Lexar microSD UHS-II cards for this review. This ERS compensation is a key factor in stabilization. Naturally, this does take a toll on the device you're rendering on, but we’ll get to that in a little bit. From this point, you manipulate, move and adjust angle as you did when looking at the footage the first time - except now it's all being captured. When using the Fusion Grip, most of the pole is invisible because it's right below the two lenses, so it looks like your hand grasping a handle that isn't attached to anything.If you want to extract the 360-degree image and video files, you'll have to use the desktop app called Fusion Studio. Our iMac might not have the latest specs, but this is still an impractically long time.The menu system will be familiar to navigate if you’ve used any recent GoPro camera. The level of detail is still impeccable, though, and we can’t find much to complain about in terms of color accuracy and quality.The GoPro Fusion comes with 6-axis gyro-aided software stabilization that is applied during the stitching process. Partnerships. Fusion Studio is also extremely glitchy and unpredictable. It has three video modes: 5.8K at 24 fps, 5.2K at 30 fps, and 3K at 60 fps. We shot around 10-15 minutes of footage in total at the 5.2K 30fps setting, as well as approximately 20 minute time lapse capture - and it still wasn't close to being empty, instead it was down to around 45 per cent.You switch the camera on be pressing and holding the power/menu button, then start recording by pressing the red shutter button on the front. Its best to use two cards with identical capacities in the Fusion since if one of them fills up before the other, you won't be able to record more footage. Nothing major, but still noticeable. Being a flat screen, the video shows up in a similar manner to how other 360-degree video would and you can move within it to see what it looks like. So, we knew that encoding to the 5.6K resolution wouldn’t be feasible, but if we changed the projection, we could fit the same amount of resolution into a much smaller container size. However, the iPhone 6s Plus often failed to import videos longer than two minutes, and would get very hot.We encountered a few bugs in the current firmware of the the Fusion. For example, the red status light in the front would stay on when the Fusion was powered off, and at times, random conversations would trigger voice commands, causing the device to switch modes or start recording.At the time of this review, the Fusion can only be purchased officially in India by getting it shipped directly through GoPro’s website.
That is very impressive.Once footage has been exported to a file, you then need to import into a new project on Premiere Pro. However, the post-launch support for the Fusion has been encouraging. It's almost too simple, but that's why it's great. So when you go to show your friends, or watch it back on a TV, you don't miss any of the important action. Some accessories excluded; learn more. GoPro retained the dual-tone grey colour scheme and the grippy diagonal lines around the edges. You can have it stand up on the floor, or you can hold it, and it's able to extend up to 56cm in length.The GoPro Fusion is one of those interesting products that has been continuously progressing and improving over time. In video mode, you can shoot spherical vidoes at up to 5.2K (4992x2496) at 30fps, or 3K (3000x1504) at 60fps. If you don't have Premiere Pro, it's probably best to edit them and export in either a Tiny Planet or Fish Eye views if you want to watch them on a flat screen.That suggests you can probably expect somewhere around an hour of shooting time. That time will undoubtedly increase if you opt to shoot at 3K resolution rather than the full 5.2K res.For VR users, the experience is enhanced further by the 3-way microphone system built into the top of the camera.
