    Sphericam 2 a solution to the lack of 360 VR compatible cameras meant for the consumers.-sphericam_gallery_0007.jpg

    Recently launched via Kickstarter, the new Sphericam 2 aims to provide a solution to the lack of 360 VR compatible cameras meant for the consumers.

    With the creation of VR goggles, the consumer is looking for cameras that can create these videos and the consumer is not able to find reliable products until now.

    As small as a tennis ball, with its built-in 4K lenses to capture 360-degree video at 60fps, the Sphericam 2 comes with Wi-fi as well, allowing the user to live stream video to desktop or mobile devices.

    The VR industry is slowly increasing and gaining popularity in the gaming communities, especially with YouTube adding support for 360-degree videos.

    Check out more about the project and consider backing it on Kickstarter.

    The main features of the Sphericam 2 are:

    Tiny Form Factor
    65mm diameter from lens to lens. With the lenses so close together, you can also get closer to the action.

    GLOBAL SHUTTER
    Every pixel in the sphere is captured at the same moment. There is no other spherical video camera in existence that can do this.

    4K Resolution
    With a spherical resolution of 40962048, you get a Full HD view when watching these videos in a VR Headset, or interactively on a tablet or PC.

    60FPS
    With a maximum frame rate of 60FPS, this camera will be able to follow any action you throw at it.

    Total Synchronization
    White balance, exposure, and everything else is fully synchronized. No messy post-production or dirty tricks, just easy results.

    Maximum Bit Rate
    We record using 6 cameras in maximum quality. Its more than 1 Gigabit per second. You wont be losing quality.

    Well, something awesome is being dust-proof and water-resistant (IP67/ splash proof) is a big deal. It's essential for water sports enthusiasts.

    Also I saw a kind of housing for this camera so could be a scuba camera (as a Scuba Diver for me everything has to be water proof always )
