I am one of the longtime users of pimax 4k.
Ghost, vertical lines, darkness … I hate this 4K features and now I am using Oculus Go.
Vertical lines were always visible in my eye. The SDE is obscured by the darkness, and it stands out when we maximize the brightness, especially when the shutter glasses are removed.
Hey these are pretty nice pics! I tried shooting some pics with my Galaxy S8 plus earlier but couldn’t get them to this quality. can you do some more, also of some games?
BTW these vertical lines are the shutter glass, if you remove it then the lines are gone. Disadvantage is that you’ll get a lot more ghosting. Quite a few forum users put the shutter glass back in because of the increased ghosting.
Hey @Pimel I managed to take good through the lens photo’s too. I got inspired after seeing these photo’s you’ve posted and thought I’d try it myself (again). For anyone looking to do this too:
Remove the eye cushion from your HMD
Push camera lens onto the HMD lens
Keep your HMD as still as possible
Then just fiddle a bit with your cam. Slighly move up/down/left/right, twist, turn (while maintaining contact between phone and HMD lens) and keep shooting pics. So for me it was a bit trial&error until you finally get one that’s sharp all over the picture. Thing is you’ll need to take a photo through the sweet spot of course, which was much more difficult for the Vive Pro than for the Pimax 4k.
I was actually quite surprised by the resulting quality (I used an Galaxy S8+). As posted in the other topic:
Because moving your phone while taking a picture ‘blends’ the pixels a bit, showing less SDE or something that isn’t resembling reality. A tiny bit of out-of-focus would also result in a better picture in terms of SDE
Hmm but while moving it would lose sharpness I’d say. I kept both cam and HMD as still as possible each time. Didn’t really try moving. So I’d slightly fiddle the cam, then shoot, fiddle again, shoot etc.
