Have a great weekend! Update on upcoming posts


Happy Memorial Day to all readers in the US!

I will be away for the weekend, doing a lot of tests:

3DR Solo with Aerial Kit for Kodak SP360 4K -- aerial 360 videos, without the drone in the shot!
Underwater housing for Kodak SP360 4K -- this may have the best stitching short of getting a 360bubble
Night sky shots with the Xiaomi Mi Sphere and Theta S
Underwater testing with Xiaomi Mi Sphere and other cameras
An accessory that will let you shoot third person views, hands-free!

These and more next week!  If you want to talk to other 360 Rumors readers, you may want to check out the 360 Cameras Group on Facebook!
