4K in 360-degree video it can still feel like it’s not so much. So Pisofttech is showing off one of the first 360 camera that can stitch 8K videos in the camera itself. The Pilot Era is a four-lens camera capable of shooting 8K 360 videos at 26 frames per second or 4K at 60 fps.
Since 2012, Pisofttech has been working in panoramic algorithms. They are the only Panoramic + AI algorithm team in China invested by ARM .
About Pilot Era 8K Camera
The Pilot Era’s four lenses and sensors work together to record and stitch 8K spherical video automatically. You can still choose to use third party software to do the stitching if you want, but why would you when this device does it all for you? The four f/2.2 fisheye lenses are on each side of the body and the camera also uses algorithms to stabilize the footage and correct any distortions created by merging the four views together.
The Pilot Era has a small touchscreen, voice control and an optional smartphone app can control it remotely. It also has four different preview modes: fisheye, scrollable 360, little planet, and flattened equirectangular which allows you to see the entire recorded area. It weighs about as much as a can of soda, so it is compact and also light. The battery will deliver 1-2 hours of use time.
The Era will cost around $3,000 when it is released later this year. For more information, check out Pisofttech website.
