I don't know where to start..
The 5.7k/4k resolution claim is very arguable. Indoor videos are impossible with this camera. The videos come out noisy and blury, not just in the vr headset - but on the raw files. This camera is VERY bad without enormous lighting (sometimes even with it) .
I didn't like that I need to have a phone app installed and connected via wifi at all times in order to get any functionality out of this camera.
I did not like the manual being a one 6" sheet of paper (with maybe 150 words), not nearly describing the entire ins and outs so that i have to search their website / Google for answers.
I didn't like having to youtube how to do a firmware update on their camera because their website didn't adequately explain it.
I certainly did not like the multiple beepings.. on every.. single.. click..
I felt as if I could've produced the same quality of performance of the 180 3d from the Vuze XR with 2 off-brand GoPro cameras and a stereoscopic frame.
I really wanted to like this camera, I made excuses to ignore my reasoning. I thought - maybe it's the firmware or maybe there is a way to change the video quality in the phone app but no.. In the end after having everything at its highest setting I realized this is just not what I expected. In my honest opinion it's not worth the price.
Stabilization for 360 videos is a crapshoot compared to Insta360 onex. The one-x seems to produce gimbal like stabilization, but this seems to produce jittery and artifact filled stabilization. Maybe I am being overly critical but vuze's software stabilization just doesn't compare.
VR180 stabilization is just as bad, however for a consumer camera I'm not sure I have much else to compare this to at this price point. Basically unless you mount on a tripod you don't want to be filming VR180.
360 videos you can somewhat get away with mediocre stabilization, but with vr180 the footage needs to be smooth or else it will be blurry in a headset. Now, I am confident that the vuze team is working on better stabilization, but it is just not there yet in their software/firmware.
Video quality: there's sometimes a lot more noise than I would like when shooting in 4k60fps. I think this too is a software issue, as they just need to add in better noise filtering algorithms. You still can't shoot in raw mode. This camera uses the same image sensors as the Pixel 1 smartphone, so I expect the quality to be pretty good (the original pixel can shoot some amazing videos).
Stitching of 360 videos: mediocre. It isn't bad, but you can DEFINITELY see the stitch lines, and it definitely misaligns sometimes. You can somewhat adjust in post using vuze studio, but it isn't very user friendly.
3D and 360 photo quality: "18MP" means nothing here. The photo quality is crap when viewed in a VR headset. Do not buy for taking 360 or 3D180 photos. I don't understand why the photo quality is comparatively worse: perhaps because it compresses the photos on the camera itself, no raw mode. If we could tweak the quality of the compression that would be good.
TLDR: stabilization is not good, and one of the major reasons I will return this camera. Software/firmware is still immature compared to other product offerings in the same class. Hardware is top notch for this price range, but without the software support it won't reach its full potential. This feels like a rushed product software wise, and it needs more time in the oven. If you absolutely need to take 5.7k VR videos, this is your only option in this price range and hardware wise stands above everything else. But if I were you I would wait a good 6 months for the Vuze team to perfect the software/firmware. If you're a prosumer and edit in Adobe CC, then you'll get by ok on this. But if you're like me and just want a way to quickly share VR, this is not very user friendly.

Vuze XR has the most interesting formfactor of any camera I think I have ever seen! Its duel lens design is truly unique and any concerns I have for the mechanical operation disappears as soon as I click the button (soooo satisfying). The camera has a 1/4'' mount fixture, takes a high speed micro SD card (UHS III up to 256GB) and features a USB C port for fast charge and data transfer. I was a little concerned with the 1 hour battery life but the fast charge and the fact you can power the camera from an external power bank makes up for this – I use a SilverStone 10000mA which seems to last forever. The XR includes a wrist strap, data cables and a rather smart carry case that cleans the lens.
This is without doubt the best VR180 camera on the market bar none and with the Yi Horizon looking like it has been scrapped I cant see any other cameras coming close to this!
This camera was bought with the sole purpose of watching back 3d 180 photos and videos via and Oculus Rift.
The results once steps below were taken were absolutely mind blowing, I have been waiting for a product such as this for 3 years and to finally have it and have it work as well as it does is mind blowing.
To do the above you will need, this assumes shooting in 180 3d.
1) Download Vuze software, all images and videos will need to be "Rendered" by the software and saved. You can edit some aspects of the videos, lighten etc. BUT no opportunity to crop or merge clips. So very basic.
2) But once you have your rendered files time to create folders on your PC in my pictures and videos under the name '360 Photos' and '360 Videos' drop the files into these folders. You will need to re-name the end of your videos files to _180.mp4 (or _360 etc).
3) You will need to download and but "Virtual Desktop" from steam store or Oculus store - I would recommend Oculus store.
4) When you open up this application top right will be the 360 tabs to view in VR and your images are there. Don't use folders within the main 360 folders as that can cause problems.
5) You will need to change the video or photo view setting - for photos to Dome 180, this in the pictures, in the tab bar just above the tiled photos displayed - this gives you the 3d - for vide its bottom left under tiled videos and you will need the side by side square icon to view 3d videos as 180 vs them duplicated in a messy 360 view.
5) The rendered photos can be edited as long as you broadly edit side by side photos the same using a third party photo app.
6) Videos once rendered can be edited, cropped (in length, not picture size really), and merged together etc. the trick then is exporting them in an .mp4 fie as .mov files won't work (but try just changing the file name manually to .mp4 as this worked - bit then no sound). Conversion tools to .mp4 compress so much that this isn't great given VR scale playback. You will also need to manually select image size 5760 x 2880 - all other setting sound etc will be typical - this 5760 x 2880 post vuze render process.
7) The other purchase was a "Fantaseal Action Camera Grip Mount, Handheld Stabilizer Selfie Stick w/Smartphone Clamp Mount Compatible for Gopro Sony Action Camera and More, Action Cam Handle Grip Micro Movie Shooting System" cheap but brilliant - This as I found when you held the camera my knuckles always appeared in the bottom of the shot - this grip kept your hand safely back out of shot and was more comfortable. Plus you could also then use the phone app as well.
8) Don't take photos with the camera pointing down, keep vertical or it will make you feel unwell looking back at them. It catches floor to ceiling so no need to tilt anyway.
9) Keep in pouch as very easy to scratch a lens.
10) Oculus video will play but not in 3d - 360 fine but really not as good as the virtual desktop app which is strange in my opinion.
Other than that I can't rate it high enough......the future and it is here today.....any family photo not taken in 3d vr will look silly 5 years from now! Like photos in an album do today, and a wasted opportunity. Hope this helps.
Now to the VR 180 quality. Am I missing something. I always thought VR stands for virtual reality i.e. you feel like you are in the movie. I have not managed to make a video which looks anything remotely like that or found a demo anywhere online, made with a vuze xr, which would work with my Oculus Go. They are either all over the screen and un watchable and blurred. At the moment I can’t recommend this camera maybe with future software updates and better support and instruction I can change this. I live in hopes.
SD card also required but everything else you need comes in the box.
Took for a test ride mounted on the back of my bike as soon as it arrived and very impressed with the performance and video quality.
The mobile app allowed me to control the camera settings and stop/start recordings without stopping to unmount it from the back of the bike.
Video recordings offer 360 degree 4k 60fps or 5.7k 30fps, something for everyone whether your preference is buttery smooth framerates of ultra high resolution.
A press of a button switches to 180 degree VR mode, recordings are immersive, albeit vomit inducing for someone not well versed in VR suddenly dropped into a virtual offroad bike ride.
The stitching is barely noticeable in 360 mode, only if you are really paying attention for it, and the image stabilization works extremely well - field tested on a bumpy mountain bike course.
The app has fairly extensive offerings in terms of editing and exporting the media but the desktop studio is where you will want to do the majority of the fine tuning.
There are alot of nice features such as the two shooting modes (360 or VR180) both capturing video in 5.7k. At first I thought the video editing would be a bit overwhelming as I am by no means an expert, however the mobile app was great for some quick editing and quite easy to pick up. The app also provides a live preview which you can remotely record from, something I personally found really useful.
You can go on to do some more advanced video editing through the desktop software, something I've been getting better at each day! The audio is really high quality as well.
Carrying it around was no problem, the cameras fold in and it comes with a little padded case which was a nice addition.
I would recommend buying a selfie stick so you can make the most of it, you will also need a SD card to store your content (look out for one with the U3 speed class mark). I also plan to buy a VR headset ASAP so I can watch 3D videos(looking at the Oculus GO as it seems to offer the best experience for the cost!).
Overall I am really pleased with the purchase and I can't fault it. Looking forward to any updates and capturing some great content on my upcoming holidays!
Overall the camera is great quality and I would definitely recommend to anyone who is interested in 360 or VR content creation as it really is a dual purpose camera! My only negative comment would have been that it seems to beep ALOT although I worked out you can turn this off in the settings so great job VUZE!
EDIT: Updated the camera with the latest Firmware and it seems to have added some new features including the option to livestream from the camera! This is awesome and great to see the manufacture is still working hard to improve the product after I have paid for it.
Personalmente, dopo averne provate tante, credo di essere arrivato alla conclusione che per il mondo consumer le fotocamere 360 e 180 3d, per quanto riguarda la qualità e risoluzione delle immagini siano ancora acerbe. Voglio precisare che tra le fotocamere 360 e VR 3d che ho avuto modo di testare, questa Vuze XR è quella che dà i risultati migliori, purtroppo però, viene tanto pubblicizzata la risoluzione in 4K o addirittura fino a 5,7K ma bisogna ricordare che questa risoluzione va spalmata per tutti i 360 gradi di una ripresa o 180 nel caso di video in 3D.
Difatti pur catturando video in 5,7K se andiamo a guardarli in un visore VR (nel mio caso un Oculus GO) il risultato è appena sufficiente, dato per scontato che si riprenda in condizioni di luminosità ottimali.
Ho effettuato diverse prove e vi assicuro che basta che la giornata sia poco soleggiata e la qualità dei video, già non troppo entusiasmante, cala drasticamente, per non parlare delle riprese in interno, in questo caso, per ottenere dei video sufficienti bisogna allestire una illuminazione da set cinematografico!
Se invece vi accontentate di guardare i video 360 catturati su uno smartphone o di postarli semplicemente sui social allora il discorso cambia, ma sinceramente se devo sborsare 450 euro per una videocamera, vorrei dei filmati da poter tenere come video ricordi e guardali con una buona risoluzione, non dico 4k ma almeno FullHD, purtroppo guardandoli nel visore VR o su uno schermo più grande pare di essere tornati 10 anni indietro!
- CONSIDERAZIONI PERSONALI SUL PRODOTTO -
La Vuze XR è costruita molto bene, sembra essere molto robusta, e anche il meccanismo di apertura delle lenti per passare dal 360 al 3D sembra essere costruito per durare nel tempo. Se avete intenzione di acquistarla, ricordate che dovrete prendere anche una microSD veloce, infatti con una UHS 1 la fotocamera, dopo circa 30 secondi di ripresa va in errore, per cui dovrete considerare almeno una UHS3, io ho inserito una SanDisk Extreme PRO 64GB UHS3 con la quale è filato tutto liscio.
Prima di utilizzarla ho provveduto a effettuare l’aggiornamento all’ultimo firmware disponibile, per fare questa operazione basta collegarsi al sito ufficiale Vuze, andare alla sezione “support” e da li effettuare il download del firmware. Una volta scaricato, basta copiare il file sulla scheda microSD, inserirla nella fotocamera (spenta) e poi accenderla. Il led di accensione lampeggerà per qualche secondo di color viola e poco dopo tornerà bianco e sarà pronta all’uso.
Con il nuovo firmware è stata implementata la connessione senza fili tra la fotocamera e l’Oculus GO, facendo riconoscere la stessa al visore come server DLNA. Per attivare questa funzione bisogna seguire i seguenti passi:
1. All’accensione della fotocamera premere brevemente per due volte in successione il tasto WIFI che si colorerà di azzurro
2. Collegarsi tramite l’Oculus Go alla rete wifi creata dalla fotocamera
3. Andare in Oculus Gallery e troveremo la Vuze XR
Ovviamente potrete vedere solo i video catturati in 4K poiché per quelli in 5.7K bisognerà effettuare lo stitching su PC in una seconda fase.
Parlando di stitching, che sarebbe la cucitura effettuata tra le riprese delle due lenti, questa risulta ben fatta e poco visibile, ottimo lavoro!
Purtroppo, oltre al problema della qualità video descritto nella premessa, questa Vuze XR ne ha anche altri. In primo luogo non è possibile cambiare i settaggi dalla fotocamera, ma solo se collegata allo smartphone, questo è senza dubbio uno svantaggio se volessi utilizzarla come punta e scatta. Anche per cambiare la risoluzione da 4K a 5.7K, o soltanto per vedere come è impostata in quel momento, devo collegarla allo smartphone.
Il secondo problema è che all’aperto, anche in assenza di sole, i led che avvisano se siamo in modalità foto oppure video sono praticamente invisibili.
Poi c’è il tasto di inizio/stop ripresa o scatto che è in una posizione per cui è troppo semplice farlo partire senza volerlo, a me è capitato almeno 20 volte di sfiorarlo per far partire una ripresa senza neppure accorgermene.
Infine, voglio segnalare che per quanto riguarda i video catturati in 5,7K (non so se vale anche per i 4K) la stabilizzazione delle immagini non è hardware ma software, va infatti selezionata prima di effettuare il rendering da PC.
Per concludere, non posso nascondere il fatto di essere rimasto deluso da questa Vuze XR, il problema principale, che accomuna tutte le fotocamere 360 fino ai 5,7k è la qualità delle riprese, come ho detto in precedenza, guardano i video sul visore VR o su uno schermo da 28”, la qualità degli stessi secondo me non arriva neppure ai 720p, per non parlare dei video catturati in 4K, peggio di peggio.
Poterla poi utilizzare solo in condizioni di illuminazione più che ottimali è una grossa limitazione, l’unico vantaggi concreto che vedo in questa fotocamera è quella di abbinare una 360 e una VR 3d in un solo prodotto, personalmente ci riproverò quando la reale qualità video sarà almeno di 2K.
- PRO E CONTRO -
✅Ottima qualità costruttiva
✅Due fotocamere in una, 360 + 3D VR
✅Audio di buona qualità e sincronizzato con il video
✅Stitching nei video 360 quasi invisibile
✅Funziona anche se alimentata da un powerbank
❌Qualità video su visore VR o schermi che superano i 12” insufficiente
❌Quasi inutilizzabile con condizioni di luminosità non ottimali
❌Non configurabile se non collegata allo smartphone
It's sturdy and feels weighty in hand.
It's easy to use
it has a reasonable dynamic range
Now the bad.
The lenses scratch REALLY easily.
The picture resolution is useless for anything other than social media novelty 360s
The 180 3D mode is only any good under perfect lighting conditions. Trust me if you try to watch a video show in poor lighting on a VR headset the noise is REALLY noticable and makes it almost unwatchable.
The grip is too large so your hand is always in shot, they do try to sell a "magic selfie stick" with the product which supposedly fixes this issue but honestly at £400 for a novelty camera this should be included as part of the package.
This product will be useful for people going on holiday who don't plan to use the images for anything other than social media posts where people wont see the pictures up close. Could MAYBE be used by people wanting to record basic 3D videos in a perfectly lit studio environment.
The app is really easy to use (once you get the hang of it) and allows you to preview the shot and and act as a remote to take pictures/videos. I can just transfer them on to my phone and then edit them using the directors cut feature in the Vuze XR app. This is awesome and allows you to reframe the shot, add filters like Instagram and more. Once I have finished editing I can just render to my camera reel and then upload to social media. Easy!
I would also strongly recommend joining the "Vuzers" group on Facebook once you have / before you purchase - the group has helped me loads with tips, problems and techniques. I have come on leaps and bounds so my advice would be to buy it and get stuck in!
Looking forward to taking everything I have learned on my trip to Jersey this weekend. I'll definitely be buying the underwater case for my holiday in September!!
I went for the Vuze XR are because it offerd both these capabilities and wasn't disappointed!
The camera was really easy to use and I was really impressed with the supporting pc software which is free.
The Vuze studio automatically injects metadata for upload, enabling platforms such as Facebook and editing software to instantly detect it is a 360 degree photo allowing me to easily share my shots.
I was fortunate enough to take XR to Cape town where I created some amazing panoramic shots of tabletop mountain.
I was really impressed with the stitching and and the cameras ability to shoot in raw allowed me to create something special in post production.
My only disappointment with the XR was that I didn't take the new underwater case for the camera on my trip as would have been great to capture the sharks of Capetown!
Definitely my next purchase - highly recommend
I purchased 2 insta360 EVO cameras. One failed after a month and took 8 weeks for Insta to return it to me and it still wasn't working and they won't respond to me emails any more. If you by a camera like this for 3D 180, maybe you should superglue it in the mode. Thin cables don't like being bent though 180%
