Sample 360 photos from Xiaomi Mijia Sphere 360 camera, including low light samples

Here are full resolution 360 photos from Xiaomi’s 360 camera, the Xiaomi Mijia Sphere launched a few hours ago.

A reader who prefers to remain anonymous shared these sample photos from the Xiaomi Mijia Sphere.  Check them out:

The photos show good levels of detail, even in low light (it appears the 23.88 megapixel resolution is real, not merely interpolated).  The stitching is quite good, no doubt due in large part to the very slim profile of the Mijia Sphere.

The white balance looks accurate for artificial lighting.  There is some chromatic aberration that is noticeable in areas with bright light.

As for 360 videos, there are a few samples included in the app (here is the link for the Android app).

How do you like the quality of the photos and videos so far?  Let me know in the comments!

  • Dear Mic,

    This could be the camera that I’m looking for: while everyone is taking about 360° videos, I’m looking for the best (affordable) still spherical camera to make my own ‘streetview’-like photos.

    Or would you recommend another camera? It has to have a tripod attachment hole too so the Insta360 Air is probably not my choice (I’m watching your review of it as I write this!) even though you seem to recommend it.

    • Hi Marc. For still photos, the camera I like best (other than the Panono) is still the Theta. I like it because of the manual controls and the best-in-class stitching. Theta SC is good for most people, although if you also want to try night sky photography, then you could look into Theta S instead. Here is my review of the Theta S (Theta SC is almost identical): http://360rumors.com/2016/06/ricoh-theta-s-a-long-term-review-plus-10-advantages-over-its-competition-in-2016.html

      Meanwhile, there are a couple of cameras that you ought to pay attention to: the 2017 Gear 360 and the Kodak Orbit360. I should receive the 2017 Gear 360 hopefully today and will be posting sample photos among other things. I believe they’ve resolved the blurgate issue with the new design.

      As for the Kodak Orbit360, it looks promising as well, and is due sometime this month.

      As for the Air, if your priority is photos, then it is not what I recommend (it’s what I recommend for videos and for social media).

      I hope this helps!

      Best regards,
      Mic

      • Thank you for your reply, Mic. The Kodak really looks promising with its super high resolution. The price should be between 400 and 500 bucks — well I guess it’ll be 499 then …
        I’ll be awaiting that review.

        The Ricoh also looks good as it’s slim design will prevent from stitching errors of nearby objects which is great for indoors photography. I have yet to compare more new Gear 360 pictures to make up my mind.

        Kind regards,
        Marc

  • This samples look good, do you know if this new camera will have an intervalometer? (Sorry this is the same question I posted for the Gear 360, but it is really important to me and it seems this camera has better Still resolution than anything else) Thanks

  • Hi Mic,

    Thanks for the reply on my previous comment in the Theta S post.

    Niticed the sample image of Xiaomi Mijia 360 and image looks sharp. Definitely one of the best in the price range. The image is uploaded in a hosting site *Roundme ? I see there are options to change the camera view modes which is pretty awesome.

    Would be glad if you can tell me the post process of this so i can learn a few tips. Thanks in advance.

    Regards,
    Ray
