Vuze XR Reviews

Solid

By Jesse
Rated 3 out of 5
Date: 2022-05-09

So far the camera seems to be solid well constructed. The software is a little bit confusing but I have not messed around with it much yet. B&H however really let me down. I ordered this camera specifically for a trip. It was supposed to be at my house two days prior. B&H didn't even fill the order until 4 or 5 days after I had already left. Then I got a message saying the delivery is delayed due to the carrier. It arrived at my house 1 1/2 weeks late for something that was in stock and supposed to be a two day delivery. I would have bought from another place if I would have known it would take so long.

Great for VR 180 3D videos

A great camera to explore making VR 180 3D videos. The Facebook group for this camera is very supportive and I have been able to resolve all my questions through the Facebook group. The camera takes some getting used to, but I have practiced using it a lot now, and find that once you get to know the quirks, it is quite good to use.

Best quality

I bought this camera to start filming vr 360 videos and story sphere photos! Its a really good camera for someone who wants to start creating 360 medias.

Not mature yet but promizing

Well, it does what it is advertised, but at 4K 60FPS is way too low for the Oculus, clips seems to be completely out of focus, blurred, at the point that it is not usable for VR, at 5,7k 30FPS, the clips are much sharper, but way too jerky. So basicaly not really usable for VR.

A full VR studio in hand

I love the versatile of this product. The quick video/upload to your iPhone or computer is amazing. Two things that I have notice; one, the 4K 60/120 resolution doesn’t let you live view as you record (unless there is a setting, I’m not aware about.) but it does in 5k 60. 2. As any device that uses wifi; makes sure the signal is strong, or you will experience lag.

Still the best VR180 camera for consumers

By Joseph
Rated 5 out of 5

This is one of many VR180/hybrid cameras I own (including the QooCam, the Insta360 EVO, a Lucid one, and others). For 360, there are better options (I think the Insta360 One X is the best one overall), but for VR180, this is my go-to. The EVO is close, but it's awkward to use and, for me, the captured audio isn't as good. Yes, this has some connectivity issues. Granted. It's usually not an issue, but it can be. However, for VR180, I've learned that you very much want to use a tripod - movement does *not* go over well. As such, this has very easy, visible, manual controls for switching between photo and video mode and for starting and stopping recording, Pretty brainless. You can also record while charging over USB C, which is good because battery life is not great - maybe 30-45 minutes max. The recordings are phenomenal in this price range, both in terms of the visual as well as the audio. Again, this is 5K VR180, so it won't be completely crisp, but it'll be passable, and the recorded audio is extremely good. I've used this at Walt Disney World with great results. You can probably find VR180 ambient videos I shot on YouTube; you can certainly find videos others shot with a Vuze to see for yourself. Note that YouYube's fidelity is improving, but it's still not as good as the original video. But... use it to see and hear for yourself (use Cardboard/Oculus/other goggles for best results). I also recorded some time with my father before he passed, and the VR180 aspect - when using an Oculus Quest or similar to view it - makes it feel so much more like I'm there with him than any 2D video. Those short recordings alone justified the cost of this to me.

Great camera esp. for VR-180

Great cam for VR180 3D, best with good light. Also good in VR360. Great feature is that you can render your videos on mobile phone and it works in reasonable speed (Samsung S21 Ultra)

good idea, but hard to use

great idea, but I wish they had more effort into making sure it works. the vuze vr studio software doesn't even run on my Mac mini M1. the product has so much potential, but sad to say it's just a disappointment.
