Teche Phiimax captures 12K 360 photos in 2D or 3D, or 12K 2D 360 videos.  It can also shoot at 120fps at an unspecified resolution.  Here are the details.

Here’s a product video, shared by Teche’s distributor, Stabilizer Pro:

As noted in the table, it has the option for live streaming and realtime stitching (at 4K resolution).  It can also shoot at 120fps although I don’t know at what resolution.

An unusual aspect of the camera is that it has no fans and no vents.  Instead, it uses a fully sealed, all-aluminum enclosure to dissipate heat.  Teche claims the Phiimax is actually waterproof and dustproof.

Sample videos

Here are sample videos from the Phiimax.  The videos are in 8K 2D 360 and show excellent detail and dynamic range.

Price and availability

The Phiimax is available directly from Teche at 35,800 RMB (around US$5340).  I don’t know yet if the price includes the stitching software, or what the hardware requirements are.

  • OK. Now, let me see… Should I buy the Insta360 Pro, the Insta360 Titan, the Zcam V1, the Detu Max or the Phiimax ??? :-O

    • On a 2nd thought, comparing image consistency between un-zoom and zoomed positions, image kinda looked good. The actual video will be a lot better I guess.

  • Finally some hope! At 12K capture maybe we can starting having cropped flat video that actually looks something like proper 1080p! 🙂

    • Hi Mark yes 12k should look close to 1080p, but the question is playback — i think you’ll need exotic hardware to be able to play back 12k smoothly, unless you’re using foveated rendering.
