This year’s CES is the place where the 360Fly panoramic video camera saw the light of day. Even though this is not the first 360 camera on the market – we have already presented the BulbCam here – it still draws a lot of attention, mostly due to the fact that it is small and provides good quality footage.
The 360Fly is a result of cooperation between two acknowledged companies, namely the Voxx International and the EyeSee360. It enables you to capture 360⁰ video recording and even zoom and pan the video using the dedicated software. This means that you will not only record what is in front of you, but also everything around in one simple shot.
The quality of the recording is 1500×1500 at 30fps which is enough to provide clear immersive footage of your adventures. In addition, you can use the 360Fly with other devices simply by connecting them using Bluetooth or WiFi.
The 360Fly is very sturdy which was expected knowing that it is supposed to be used for recording adventure sports. It can be mounted to helmets and it is currently the smallest 360-degree camera in the world, weighing only 120g, which is great when you are snowboarding, for example. Moreover, it is waterproof down to 5 meters.
However, this does not mean that it can be used only in those occasions. The use that is often neglected is recording social events, such as parties. No more running around with a camera trying to get the best of everything and still missing most of the things. Simply place the 360Fly in the middle and capture the entire party in one shot. And can you even imagine the benefits of this approach in the field of security?
As the manufacturer said it himself, the 360Fly will truly make your footage “more compelling, engaging, and immersive than ever before”.
The pricing details have not been announced yet, but it is safe to assume that products such as the 360Fly will have their following whatever the price.
