SPECIAL NOTE: You can also get the Hero5 Upgrade Kit and then this rig can use the GoPro Hero 3, 3+, 4 and 5
The Pro6L v2 is specifically designed for drone, vehicle and helmet mounting to create semi-spherical 360° video. It is ideal for situations where mounting a 360° rig close to an object or surface is necessary.
The Pro6L v2 360 Plug-n-Play™ Holder positions five GoPro cameras in a portrait orientation facing outward along the horizon and a single GoPro on top, leaving the bottom open. The geometry of the rig produces semi-spherical, dome-shaped coverage, with a 60° blind spot, or nadir, at the bottom (or top, if you’re rigging upside down). The 5 cameras on the horizon are intentionally angled downward to increase frame overlap and reduce the size of the nadir.
This configuration enables filmmakers to mount the system flush to a surface (vehicle hood, bottom of a drone, etc.) without creating parallax issues. For drone filmmakers it presents itself as a perfectly balanced and centered load. The design features hinged camera arms for simple camera installation and durability, an anodized aluminum core for improved strength and a 3/8” mounting point.
The Pro6L v2 can also be utilized for 360 video live streaming. The open configuration on the bottom is ideal for allowing HDMI and Mini USB cable access to accommodate external power sources and video output for each camera.
The Pro6L v2 captures high resolution (up to 8,000 x 4,000 pixels) content that can be viewed with the Oculus Rift, HTC VIVE, Samsung Gear VR, Google Cardboard and the industry’s other leading virtual reality head mounted displays.
