Download Qoocam 8K sample footage

In this video you will see my first shoot with the Kandao Qoocam 8K. This video is shot in full auto mode, 8K 30fps video, with very minimal colour grading done in post. The Rode Wireless GO was used for the talking scenes (except the first scene).Β 

Β 

Please note the Qoocam 8K firmware and desktop software is still under development. And the results you see are not optimal. There is a lot of improvement for this camera to come.

Β 

You can download some of the Qoocam 8K sample footage featured in this video below. The mp4 video files provided have already been stitched using Qoocam Studio in 7680 x 3840 resolution, high bit rate mode. You can import these mp4 video files directly into your video editor. I highly recommend creating a proxy file if your computer cannot handle 8K 360 video. Native files directly from the camera is coming soon.

In this video you will see a night time scene taken with the Qoocam 8K at 8K video resolution (7680 x 3840), 30fps. The video looks very clean and sharp. The shadow and highlights are not too dark or too bright. There are no visible stitch lines as people walk past the Qoocam 8K. So overall, the video quality looks extremely promising. You can also download more Qoocam 8K sample footage from Kandao’s website.

In this video you will see a night time scene reframed to 1080P from 8K 360 video. The low light performance looks great from this footage. The colour and clarity shines through.

Qoocam 8K desktop workflow

When you record Qoocam 8K footage, it will output a single .mov file. These .mov files need to be stitched through Qoocam Studio into H264, H265, or ProRes files before it can be imported into a video editor. You can also reframe your 360 video in Qoocam Studio.

Download GoPro MAX sample footage

When you record 360 video, GoPro MAX will save 360 video in HEVC (.360) format. You cannot import .360 files into a video editor. They must be converted first into a H264, H265, or ProRes file.

Β 

The .360 files can be converted using GoPro MAX Exporter Desktop Software For Windows. This software will convert the .360 files into ProRes 5.6K .mov files or H264/HEVC 4K .mp4 files. For Mac, please use GoPro Player to convert the .360 files into .mov or .mp4. The .mov or .mp4 files can then be imported into Premiere Pro. To get the full 5.6K video resolution, you must export to ProRes. This results in HUGE .mov video file sizes.

GoPro MAX mobile workflow

It seems the GoPro MAX was designed for a mobile workflow first. It’s been more than 9 months since the release of GoPro MAX and there has been barely any updates to the desktop version of the Windows and Mac software. Luckily the mobile app does have enough features to help you make awesome videos right from your phone.

GoPro MAX desktop workflow

When you record 360 video, GoPro MAX saves 360 video in HEVC (.360) format. You cannot import .360 files into a video editor. They must be converted first. The .360 files can be converted using GoPro MAX Exporter Desktop Software for Windows, or GoPro Player for Mac. This software will convert the .360 files into .mov files. But you can only export into ProRes format at this time. And ProRes .mov files are EXTREMELY BIG! The .mov files can be imported into Premiere Pro and other video editing software. Unfortunately the GoPro MAX workflow is just not beginner friendly. Hopefully this will change over time. There has been a lack of updates for the desktop software since the camera released.
