this looks far less solid than joergen geerds' 360freedom design which is also more affordable, and shipping now
i would imagine vibration would be a problem with 360heros if used on a bicycle or skiing etc as there seems to be no positive lock to keep the cameras from coming loose and falling off, just a little plastic tab, but i have not seen this unit in real life
otherwise, i assume one camera layout vs another might be advantageous for one scene vs another, depends on exactly what you shoot i suppose
also seems 360heros calling itself "plug and play" seems a bit misleading to me, seems to imply some form of electrical connection between the gopros and the head, or some form of automated preview of panoramic video, etc but it seems to refer to just attaching (plugging ?) the cameras to the head and... ????
