The Ricoh Theta (~$300 street; reviewed here) is the most popular 360 camera by a huge margin. It has an excellent, — arguably ideal — form factor. It is slim, thus minimizing parallax stitching errors, and its stick-like shape also serves as a natural, comfortable handle for the Theta.
It’s no surprise that the Theta’s design is being copied by low-cost 360 cameras. Here’s one of those clones.
Here are the key specifications:
– two 210 degree fisheye lenses
– f/2.4 aperture
– fully spherical field of view
– Photo resolution: up to 3008×1504
– Video resolution: up to 1920×960 30fps
– uses a Micro SD card up to 128GB
This camera claims to have 8mp sensor. Actually it uses the OV4689, which is a 4-mp sensor. Therefore actually it is 4mp + 4mp, not 8mp +8mp.
The manufacturer claims that it can also record at 4k 24fps although I highly doubt that. I also doubt the 1.5 hour recording time.
I don’t know the retail price or availability, but the wholesale price is under $100.
