The new, upgraded version of the XPhase Pro (reviewed here) will be called XPhase Pro S. According to its distributor Stabilizer Pro, the Pro S began shipping last Saturday. There is a small chance I might get the new unit by this weekend. I will begin testing ASAP.
XPhase Pro S is the highest resolution 360 camera with 25 BSI CMOS sensors that are each 8 megapixels. Its photos have a stitched resolution of 16384 x 8192 and are the most detailed 360 photos I’ve tested from any 360 camera, even far exceeding the detail in a Sony a6000 with Samyang 8mm 2.8 II. It is also unique in being able to take HDR photos without ghosting.
The upgraded Pro S has several improvements, including:
– better lens consistency (the original version had a few backfocused lenses)
– 6-shot HDR instead of a 3-shot HDR
– Raw DNG mode.
