There is quite a large market for head-mounted cameras that can shoot in “extreme” conditions like skiing and snowboarding. A sports electronics company called Geonaute has just added to the mix something very different with the 360 Degree Sports Camera.
The camera has 3 wide-angle lenses, each with 8 Megapixels, that allow the user to record the world in an almost spherical point-of-view. It allows a user to look at their video and then pan around to see an experience as it actually happened, instead of a simple 2-D stable viewpoint.
Not only can you make some very unique videos, but the software program allows you to download the video onto an iPad or tablet and you can move the tablet to see a very cool world. It really is something, and I was transported from the showroom floor in Las Vegas to Paris, France instantly. It really is the best way to see the world through some else’s eyes, and more.
The Geonaute 360 degree sports camera is planned to be released sometime in the summer of 2013 for a price of $399 USD or 399 Euros.
