Revl Arc wants to be the smartest action cam around
One of the things I love about the wearable/mountable camera market is that, while GoPro might dominate, there are several other companies -- big and small -- developing cameras to offer features and designs GoPro just doesn't. The Revl Arc smart action camera is a perfect example.
Launched on Indiegogo today, the Arc tackles several pain points for action-cam users, including two of the biggest: stabilization and editing. Though electronic image stabilization isn't new to the category, this is the first 4K-resolution cam that I can think of that uses a combination of mechanical and electronic image stabilization.
A motor fed with data from a built-in gyroscope keeps the camera level regardless of how it's mounted, so if it's strapped to you and you flip, your video will stay right-side up and level. Electronic stabilization helps with vibration and shake not smoothed out by the motorized stabilization.
It's doesn't give you the best image quality, but this pocketable iPhone-only 360-degree camera gets the job done.
