A detailed review about the most innovative 360º camera in the world: Bublcam that shoots 360-degree photos and videos.
Sometimes we find ourselves in such a beautiful place that can’t be expressed in words. In such situations, pictures can do wonders. Taking a panoramic shot cannot capture the beauty of your subject as multiple images slightly overlap each other. Many 360º cameras are also available in the market, but they capture 360-degree on a horizontal plane. So, the best way to take 360-degree images is via Bublcam, a camera that shoots 360-degree photos and videos. The most innovative 360º camera in the world, Bublcam has been recently launched by Bubl.
The Bublcam is a baseball-sized extremely light-weight and portable 360º camera. It was developed by Sean Ramsay to change the way people capture videos and photos. It is the best device for avid travelers and action sports enthusiasts. This spherical camera comes in tetrahedral design that features four 190º equidistant independent lenses (1.6MP).
The device can capture four 14MP spherical photos, which are combined with software in real time without leaving any gap or blind spot in the image. It can record Full HD video (1080p) at 15 frames per second and HD video (720p) at 30 frames per second. The Bublcam exports videos and photos in MP4 and JPEG format respectively.
The 360º camera features the software technology and built-in Wifi, so that users can stream their 360-degree video live on a PC, mobile device or over the Web. It also has USB streaming as well as LIVE stream using VLC. All the captured photos and videos are saved on the microSD card (which can be up to 32GB).
Users can even store the photos/videos to a thumb drive with the help of USB 2.0 port or directly to cloud storage like Dropbox, Younity or Google Drive. The camera is able to record audio in MP3 format and export it in MP4 video.
The company is planning to release soon software for PC, iOS and Android. The camera will be available in the market from May, 2014 for price ranging between $500 – $700. Currently, interested users can pre-order the device for $476 at kickstarter.com.
