I wanted to share a few 2017 Solar Eclipse VR videos with you - two were filmed here at Clemson. I love hearing the people in the background and seeing all of the embodiment - it is almost invigorating seeing yourself in a crowd in VR - isn't it? Keep in mind, the latest VR cameras will also have 360 sound. This offers more usability to the medium in that as a user you will be drawn towards the visual through aural cues.
I took this one using a Fly 360. I like this camera because it uses only one lens...a super wide angle that is, I would argue better suited for shooting an eclipse.
And this one, also filmed at Clemson, comes from the Columbia State University Coca Cola Space Science Center in Georgia.
