    This is the Veterans Day Ceremony that was held on the Courthouse Square in our little town of Manchester, Tennessee. A little town with a lot of heart. It was a privilege to be asked to present the event as Master of Ceremonies. They just needed a pretty face out front... they couldn't find one, so they picked me...

    :D

    I was disappointed, though, with the wind noise! It was a brisk breeze, but this camera's microphone array made it sound like a hurricane! I'm working on a very low-tech fix for the wind noise, and I'll post the solution if it works.

    Enjoy!

    Does it work with Cardboard or is it a Samsung thing?

    Thanks for posting...

    hmm.. before you did, I was sceptical about where or why I would actually use one of these thingies....

    Now that you have, I want one... I want one.. Santa can you hear me? I want one.

    I published it as a VR video, so it should work with any VR headset... or none at all. Just hold down the left mouse button on the video and drag around: left, right, fron, back, up, down, behind you!

    :)

    Santa heard you. I actually have TWO of them and I'm trying to sell one! If you're interested, PM me...

    I think I've figured out the low-tech fix for the wind noise... but I just had to order something else to perfect it. Stay tuned!

    Okay, I hope this solves the problem:

    I'm not sure how many Gear 360s out there are sporting an afro, but mine is! I have a VR camera with soul, baby - check out this fly guy!

    I bought a wind filter for a condenser microphone, cut it to size and hot glued it over the microphone array. I tried a glue stick, but it wouldn't adhere. I hope the problem is solved, because this is pretty much a permanent fix - I'll test it out today!

    Whoops! I forgot to post my results!

    The test was very successful. I had the "fro" on the camera for last year's ceremony, and the wind noise is barely even perceptible in the video:



    This year, stupid ME forgot the "fro"! It was very windy... and even with "Reduce wind noise" turned on in Camera Settings, the wind noise is so atrocious that I've asked the Keynote speaker for a copy of the speech so I can post it in the description. It's that bad:



    So does this work? You BET it does! It works well enough that the "fro" is now permanently glued onto the camera, so I can't forget it!
