I’ve experimented a little with it, and am not yet sure if it is good enough for what I want to do with it. The picture is what it has always been – not brilliant, but ok; but on Live streaming, I’ve experienced some very poor sound; worse than when just uploading video, and irrespective of whether I use the camera’s microphone or external mikes.

Today I had 3 boardgamers visit, so that was a job easily done, and we then christened the table. I think it looks fantastic.
The simplicity of this 3D printed device is wonderful – the camera fits into the housing, held in by the tripod screw; and a lever arrangement physically pushs the button on the pull of a string. Easy to rig, and simple to use. They even include a matching ring to put on the end of the string.
It seems odd, but my biggest problem is with simple stuff things like underwear and pajamas. This is complicated by my preference for 100% cotton, which narrows my options. My current batch of well-fitting (and well-worn) underwear is nearly in holes. Attempts to replace them a few months back – from the same supplier/make – ended up with them being returned as they were grossly undersized – and this is not me getting bigger without noticing – a pair of underpants labelled 4XL actually measured 34″ around the waist. The supplier investigated and found all of their newly imported stock was, in fact, the same size, despite being differently labelled.
This is getting surreal. Checking on what was up on HugVR today, I found the Canadian chap I was talking to last night experimenting with another guy in England, attempting a two way VR hookup.
For this chap, it is his job – he has started a company producing and consulting in VR for sales, education and entertainment; I’d come across him chilling and playing with kit, but when he knew I had the same camera as the one he was using tonight, he was interested in my opinions on quality. Then when he found I was an amateur musician, he really got excited, and got his guitar out, and we spent time discussing how cool live streamed 360° could be for virtual house concerts.
