CENTR Puts Real-Time Panoramic Video In The Palm of Your Hand

panoramic video camera is not new, but the CENTR Camera here stands out as one that’s capable of capturing 4K resolution and still fits in the palm of your hand. created by a team of former Apple engineers, the technology behind the CENTR Camera has already seen real world uses in the military and major sports channels and now, after three years of dedication, that technology is being packed into a splash-proof hockey puck-shaped device that fits right in the palm of your hand and ready for everyday people to experience the awesomeness of real-time panoramic videos. the device uses four 1080p cameras to capture and stitch together 360-degree video at up to 60 fps in real-time using the firm’s proprietary software. apart from 360-degree videoing, it is also fully capable of doing 20MP time-lapse panoramic photography and allows for individual camera selection for times when you don’t need to shoot in all directions. i believe, the latter is also the first in the industry which makes this a true everyday camera and not just one that’s for everyone.

Bublcam 360-degree Camera

taking panorama stills and videos are like a dream for all imaging enthusiasts. it was a dream because true panorama is never available without breaking an arm or a leg, and obviously, those you taken with your smartphone hardly qualifies as a “true panorama” (just look at those awful stitching!). lucky for you, there’s the Bublcam 360-degree Camera, a baseball-size spherical imaging device that takes 14MP stills, as well as videos at 1080p at 15 fps and 720p at 30 fps, and at a price point no more than an average point and shoot camera. a unique patent-pending tetrahedral design allows the four 190-degree lens to overlap, thereby eliminating any possibility of blind spots which in turn, result in breathtaking, seamless spherical images and videos.

Panono Panoramic Ball Camera

you might have heard of the Throwable Panoramic Ball Camera, the revolutionary imaging device, shaped like a ball, that automatically captures 360-degree panoramas at the peak of its toss. and that was two years ago where it was still a prototype, but today, the time is ripe for average consumers’ taking and it now has an official product name too. dubbed the Panono Panoramic Ball Camera, this consumer-ready panorama photography device is a whole lot more handy than its soccer ball size prototype too, but yet maintains the same awesome we have read and witness two years ago, including 36 numbers of 2.0-megapixel fixed-focus cameras with a total resolution of 72MP, built-in accelerometer, plus a slew of proprietary circuitry that allows it (and by ‘it’, we mean all the 36 cameras) to take a panoramic stills while in the air.

we can’t have 360° vision but that doesn’t mean we can’t photographs in that all-round perspective. i am sure Lomography fans have heard of the Spinner 360° that offers just such amazing photography experience. nothing new indeed but not if this lovely analog contraption now comes wrapped in Italian Toledo leather for the added glamor and class when you do your sweeping analog shots. under the hood, it still delivers the same fun panoramic photography as the original Spinner 360°: simply pull the ripcord and let the Spinner 360° spins, taking in eight sweeping shots on any 35mm film. no stitching, no complicated software or whatsoever to fiddle with – it is just plain fun analog panoramic photography in a classier chassis.

camera will remain as camera and as such, the words ‘concept camera’ is not something we often hear in the imaging world but that’s exactly what the Throwable Panoramic Ball Camera is. in a nutshell, this concept camera (with working prototype, i might add) that is shaped and handles like a ball, comprises of 36 fixed-focus 2.0-megapixels mobile phone camera modules mounted in a robust, 3D-printed enclosure that is foam padded, and has built-in accelerometer and a bunch of proprietary circuitry which enables the ball to take a panoramic snap while it is in the air. yes, the idea is that you have to throw this baby up into the sky and the built-in accelerometer will calculate its launch acceleration and initiate a panoramic still image capturing when the ball reaches its highest point – when it’s hardly moving.
