AS ACTION CAMERAS BECOME QUICKLY MORE POPULAR, MODELS THAT CAPTURE 360-DEGREES OF VIDEO CREATE A PANORAMIC WORLD WITH FASTINATING IMAGES.
At first, these cameras, big enough to fit in your palm, stole the hearts of those doing extreme sports. They also offered a serious potential for capturing self-images. One innovation in this area is able to become a game-changer: You may now record everything around you with a single touch. It is possible to post this on Facebook as an image, or as a video on Youtube. Thus, you may also join the Virtual Reality trend.
KODAK PIXPRO SP360
The camera that can capture 360-degrees of videos thanks to its spherical curved single lens structure can be installed on to devices such as bicycles, helmets, and tripods with the help of its accessories. The PixPro is a small, versatile, and sturdy device. It is dust proof, splash resistant, and 2m shock proof. The camera offers YouTube and Facebook 360-degree support via its Wi-Fi and NFC connections.
RICOH THETA SC
This double lens camera can probably be your most exciting and most user-friendly device. Thanks to a Wi-Fi module that can connect to your smart phone or tablet via its own app, you can watch the image frames of the videos you recorded and you can record 360-degrees of videos through the module, using it like a remote controller. The device, which doesn’t have a screen to preview videos, cannot be mounted on to helmets, clothes, or vehicles and its internal memory can only hold a six minute long video.
NIKON KEYMISSION 360
This small dual lens device can be mounted on to bicycle helmets or tripods just as it can record 4K videos. Because it was designed for extreme sports, it is -10 degree freeze proof, 30m water resistant and 2m shock proof. Besides its internal memory, the device that supports microSD card, can be controlled via smart phone thanks to an internal Wi-Fi module. It can also take photos and record videos with one touch.
If we consider that we use our smart phones usually for capturing photos and videos, getting a new 360 degree camera and carrying that one on us as well may not sound very logical. The light device, which has dual fisheye lenses, is controlled via its Insta 360 Nano app after being connected to your smart phone. The best part of this is that it is compatible with both android and Apple devices. It can also be used independently without your phone and can record in 3K with a speed of 30 FPS. It is possible to see everything on the virtual reality plane through its headset and app that comes with it.
