I have been experimenting with 3d panoramic pictures lately and I am very excited about the new possibilities this technology can offer ( I am doing manly architectural renderings).
Since I do not own a samsung s6 or note 4, I started with the google cardboard HMD and also tried a more sophisticated HMD from freefly (https://www.freeflyvr.com/
) . While I am impressed by the technologie in general, I noticed a few things that did not work very well and the most problematic seems to be the vast distortion of vertical lines, especially noticeable e.g. in interiors with high windows or alike.
I guess that this distortion is caused by the magnification effect of the lenses, which is higher with the freefly HMD than the cardboard.
Since I have never seen / used a Gear VR Headset I wonder if someone who has used both could tell me if this thing is a real "gamechanger" in this regard or basicly the same animal.
