Here’s a first look at the new 16K XPhase Scan.
WHAT’S IN THE BOX?
The XPhase Scan comes in a waterproof hard case with custom foam inserts.
The package came with the following:
- XPhase Scan
- 32GB USB thumbdrive
- Wi-Fi USB dongle
- 1/4-20 to 3/8-16 adapter / mini extension rod
- 18650 battery
- 18650 battery charger
- USB cable (Micro USB)
- USB charger (0.6A, autovolt 100/240V)
- waterproof hard case
The XPhase Scan has an all-metal housing and feels substantial:
The XPhase Scan has three lenses. The middle lens appears to be centered at the rotational axis of the XPhase Scan, while the top and bottom lenses are offset by just about 3mm behind the turning axis. The lenses are rectilinear wide angle and they don’t bulge out unlike fisheye lenses in typical 360 cameras.
Behind the XPhase Scan are two USB type A ports and a power button that doubles as a shutter button.
The two USB ports are used for the thumbdrive and the Wi-Fi dongle.
The bottom of the XPhase has a rotating 1/4-20 tripod hole and a battery cap for the removable 18650 battery. By using a standard 18650 battery, it’s easy and relatively economical for users to buy spare batteries.
