Project is currently documented on http://360cameraonline.com/

360 video currently is a hard thing to pull of and requires investing in multiple cameras. This concept saves a lot of money considering its using mobius camera instead of expensive GoPro's (most 360 3D printed rigs are based on GoPro).

3D Printing a camera rig saves a lot of time, and its super hard to manually make this rig so that each lens is exactly at a 51 degree. The rig enables to shoot panoramic 360 3D footage. Lenses are rotated horizontaly for greater field of view.

Based on Jim Watters design http://photocreations.ca/3D/mobius_camera_rig.html
Prints fine on a standard 20mm x 20mm build plate.


  1. Print stil files.
  2. Buy 14 cheap mobius cameras with wide Lens B + 14 exenstion cables for lens seperation the body of the cameras are out of the way - more compact camera
  3. Put everything together
  4. Add one or two GoPro for top view strap with rubber bands
  5. Figure out a way to start recording all at the same time or use Mobius continuous recording. After 5 minutes of run time all the footage should be in sync. If anyone has an idea how to do this by arduino or any other way let me know!
  6. Enjoy! :)

I now have a 360 Mobius setup built ... trying Video Stitch and Autopano, is there existing templates and/or Mobius C2 lens specs to be used to enable this software to do a decent job? I can't find the necessary C2 lens specs online? Am thinking I may need to resort to manual stitching of video using ptgui software?

Hi, does anyone have an example of 3D 360 video made by this camera rig using Mobius cameras? Id like to see the final result. When I saw saw some examples of classic video made by Mobius cam I didnt like it very much. I worry that the quality of final 3D 360 video will be very poor. Could anyone sent me any example, please?
Thanks for any answer.

Sweet! I may use this adapted to the Xiaomi Yi

This is bonkers. I love it. Have you thought of making one for the 808 cameras?

This is bonkers. I love it.

Hi! I'm going to build this rig - did you learn anything you would like to share while building? is there some aspect to it that i could redesign? how have your videos come out?
