Illya Friedman is the President of Hot Rod Cameras in Hollywood, Los Angeles. He’s a great guy with a terrific company that sells cameras and production equipment. They also do GoPro mods and I used a couple of his modded GoPros with Entaniya fisheye 220° lenses for my NAB 2106 VR reports. Hot Rod Cameras also helped Tims Johnson design their Blackmagic VR rig (see Report #9).
If you need any advice on shooting VR/360 or cameras in general, Illya and his team are a really good source of knowledge and gear.
(Don’t forget to watch the 360° video using the Google Chrome browser at the highest resolution you can – ideally 4K 2160s. If it doesn’t run smoothly at 2160s come down to 1440s or 1080HD. Click your mouse on the video and drag left and right and up and down to see the scene in 360º spherical.)
