Mmmm! That's interesting, I'll have another look and see whether there is more than one place to download from.

Hi Mark,

I tried downloading the firmware from the link you gave which just goes to a facebook login that doesn't work. I also tried the Yi website but the latest update doesn't include the stabilisation.

You are right (of course), now that link does not work and the Yi site does not offer it. As you can see from the video, there was firmware that added stabilization, and users used the link to get it. Maybe it was pulled. Still cutting edge! We will stay tuned...

Update on Stabilization

The link now works - it takes you to Facebook, and you must sign in and go to the Yi 30 VR Users Group, where you can download the firmware 1.1.34 and manually upgrade by copying the file to the sd card.

The good news:

The stabilization does not steal from resolution like the digital stabilization in most cameras. Instead, two files are produced: the unstabilized MP4 video file and an IMU file that contains information for stabilizing the video in software.

The bad news (temporary):

Right now all you can do is download the two files to your phone and the (latest) phone app will play the stitched video stabilized. You can turn the stabilization on and off! Most phones cannot play 5.7K videos (they do not have the power), so because of the limitations of the phones, you can now only do this with 4K 360 video clips.

They are working on the PC software that will enable stitching the 5.7K and 4K videos using the two files to get a stabilized, stitched video. And the PC software will play the stabilized videos. The software should be ready in less than a month.

This technique for stabilization is what the GoPro Fusion will use. So, again, in terms of video quality and video features, the Yi 360 VR is at the very least equal to the GoPro Fusion (but the Yi can do 5.7K, not just 5.2K) at half the price.
