Shooting and viewing 3D photos and videos is easy with the new Qoocam Ego 3D camera. Here are its key features.
The Qoocam Ego is a 3D camera, not a VR180 camera, with a field of view of around 79 degrees, which I believe is approximately equivalent to 28mm equivalent focal length.
Smooth 60fps video. Ego shoots videos at up to 1920 x 1080p at 60fps per eye for smoother videos with a greater sense of realism.
Detachable 3D viewer. Ego comes with both a camera and a 3D viewer that can be attached magnetically to the camera. You can view your photos and videos in 3D right away. No need to bring a bulky headset, or a headset that requires you to insert your phone. The 3D viewer appears to be a passive design, which means it doesn’t need its own batteries.
High resolution 3D viewing. The 3D viewer has 37 pixels per degree (PPD), comparable to the 35 PPD of the Varjo Aero, a high-end VR headset that costs $2,000.
Touchscreen. The rear screen is a touchscreen, making it easier to go through its menus and change settings.
Instant sharing. You can share your videos wirelessly with other Ego cameras.
Quick Editing. You can edit your photos and videos on your phone. No need to wait until you get home to edit, nor do you need expensive software to edit.
