I haven’t tried it out myself yet, but Yi just posted a firmware and app update for the Yi 360 VR that will supposedly add IMAGE STABILIZATION. Yup, you read that right!
Yi 360 VR (part 1 of my review here) is the most affordable 5.7K 360 camera on the market. Besides having 5.7K (5760 x 2880) video resolution, it also has 4K in-camera stitching and 4K live streaming.
One feature that potential buyers have been asking for is image stabilization. Before the Yi 360 VR was released, there were rumors that there would be image stabilization but when it was finally released, it didn’t have stabilization. But now Yi just posted a firmware update and app update that adds image stabilization. I haven’t tried it out yet, but here are the links:
– App update: update to version 2.2.1 (Android) or version 2.2.0 (iOS) or later. See Google Play Store or iOS App Store respectively.
To update the firmware: expand the zip file, copy the contents to a cleanly formatted Micro SD card, put the SD card in the camera and turn on the camera. It’s that simple.
I will test the stabilization and report back with the results!
