360fly 4K's mobile app and software make it a better 360-degree camera
This Sci-Fi eye ball looking thing it's a camera.
The 360fly 4K.
It's a single lens, 360 degree camera that's water resistant to ten meters, shock proof and dust proof.
That's tougher than other 360 cams and some design improvements from the original, such as the standard tripod mount and a bigger, brightly lit power and record record button.
Make it much easier to use.
It can record 360 by 240 degree videos and photos, which isn't spherical but it still captures a lot of the scene, and there's no stitching necessary.
It can also do flat widescreen clips for when you don't want 360 You control it all with its mobile app.
And it's the app that really sells the camera because it makes it simple to view and edit and share.
You can also install the live streaming app from Live It and use the 360 fly to live stream straight to Live Its site Using you phone's mobile connection.
There's a good Desktop App to if you'd rather do your editing there.
What's unfortunate is the video quality is sort of a mixed bag, it looks really good on a small screen like a smart phone or tablet which is the best way to experience at any way However, it's noticeably soft toward the bottom and there is heavy purple fringing in high-contrast areas, almost to the point of distraction.
Otherwise, this $500 camera is a pretty great option to let viewers immerse themselves in your experiences, whether they're recorded or live.
