Take Beautiful Spherical Photos With These 360 Degree Cameras

Fans of spherical photos, rejoice! This week, there are two new spherical cameras waiting to be crowdfunded, and they both look pretty awesome. You’ll find a quick rundown of each below. They’re both currently in the process of gathering funds, so if you’re interested, be sure to support them!

The Panono

Unlike other 360-degree cameras that rely on wide angle lenses, the Panono uses 36 cameras to eliminate blurriness, distortion and stretched images. All you have to do is toss it straight in the air and the accelerometer will set off the cameras when the Panono reaches its highest point. What you end up with is a 72 megapixel, 360-degree photo of a single moment in time.

The ublcam

The Bublcam is a little bigger than a baseball — but unlike the Panono, it’s not designed to be thrown. It uses four 190-degree overlapping cameras to take spherical, 14-megapixel photos and can be mounted, like a GoPro. The Bublcam also offers 1080p video at 15fps and 720p at 30fps. It’s Wi-Fi equipped and is capable of livestreaming.
