The 360cam delivers easy real time streaming video over WiFi, recorded video, and still photos in the palm of your hand
Robin Good's insight:
If you are looking for a live-streaming camcorder capable of shooting full 360° HD video that has an affordable price, the 360cam from Giroptic, being crowdfunded on Kickstarter, has everything you need (including the certainty that you will get one, as the project has reached its planned budget multiple times over).
The camcorder, which is very portable and easy to use, uses three ultra-sharp fish-eye lenses which are all synchronized to simultaneously capture and stitch images in real time.
The camcorder is also equipped with:
- GPS antenna for image geotagging
- 3 microphones
- gyroscope for image stabilization
- rechargeable battery
- micro-SD card slot (up to 64GB)
The 360cam can also capture photos at 4096x2048 pixel resolution in addition to video recording and live streaming at 25/30fps encoded via H264 and saved as a standard .mp4 file.
