Xiaomi has released a PC desktop stitching app for the Xiaomi Mijia Mi Sphere 360 camera (reviewed here), addressing one of the few weaknesses of this otherwise amazing camera.

Xiaomi Mijia Mi Sphere 360 camera is the best consumer 360 camera I’ve found for up to around $700, as of July 2017, because of its excellent photo and video quality, and its built-in image stabilization.  However, one of its weaknesses is that the photos and videos have to be stitched on your phone, which makes the workflow much less convenient.  Moreover, not all phones are powerful enough to stitch the videos at full resolution.  As a result, Mi Sphere fans have been waiting for a desktop stitching app, and now it’s here!

Here is a link to the PC app (a Mac version is forthcoming).

I tried the app and sadly, I haven’t been able to stitch correctly.  The resulting file is blank, although there is audio.  Other users who’ve tried the app have gotten similar results.  Hopefully there is a simple fix.  If you want to follow the discussion, here’s the link on the Mi Sphere group on Facebook.

Thank you very much to Tony Anastasi for bringing this to my attention!
