QooCam, the first pocketable 8K 360 camera, is hiding some big features

[2019.11.07, Thu 17:05] Most 8K 360 cameras are closer in size to a basketball than a regular camera - but the new Kandao QooCam 8K can slide into a pocket. Launched on Nov. 7, Kandao Technology says the QooCam 8K is the first pocketable 8K 360 camera, but the camera is also hiding a few other features that are unusual for the 360 category, including a larger sensor and a touchscreen. The QooCam 8K uses two fisheye lenses and a larger 1/1.7-inch sensor to reach the 8K quality, which is also good for 30-megapixel stills and 12-bit RAW captures. The camera uses a six-axis gyro for electronic stabilization that steadies that immersive view. The company says that the system allows the camera to be used as a 360 action camera as well. A vlog mode built into the camera allows users to work with just the front-facing lens, displaying a real-time preview of the video on the camera's 2.4-inch touchscreen. The QooCam isn't the only 360 camera with a touchscreen - the new GoPro Max has one, too - but the category often skips the screen to keep the camera compact, instead relying on a smartphone and a Wi-Fi connection.
