Quality 360 videos couldn't be easier Posted by: from: on Videos recorded with this camera are sharp. They are recorded at 50 Mbps, with a 2880x2880 resolution. To me what makes the 360fly 4K useful is the fact that I can use it as a 360 camera or as a regular front facing camera (POV mode). (good feature). Another item is the fact that the mobile app allows you to edit, trim, and share your videos easily with out the need of a computer. It is also nice that I received a software update that improved my camera and added new features. Keep the updates coming! So far very satisfied.

Horrible Quality Posted by: from: on Bought this in NYC and spent 3 days testing it out while adjusting settings throughout my time there. Each time I would come back to my hotel and look at the photos and videos, the quality was horrible. Not sure why they say it's 4K... even the photos were not good. Luckily I could return it and the accessories I bought.

Not Working Posted by: from: on I was very excited about receiving this today by UPS! I went through all of the instructions and everything seemed to go smoothly. I did the 30 minute charge as instructed before powering the camera up and pairing it with my phone. Again, everything going smoothly so far. Started doing test videos and learning how to use the editing functions. Then I set up to do a longer video in the car. After about 14 minutes, the unit seemed to freeze. I couldn't stop it from recording from my phone and the camera itself wouldn't shut down. I restarted my phone and the camera stopped recording. I figured it just got a little buggy...Unfortunately not! Tried charging the unit as instructed to see if that was the issue -- nope. After four hours, the green light is still flashing. Tried to power up, but now it Powers itself down after a few moments. Tried a soft reset...no luck. Tried a hard reset several times...no luck! Will be calling support in the morning. Can't tell you how disappointed and frustrated I am! This review will remain a one star unless 360fly can figure this out.

360 Upgraded Posted by: from: FL on I am having so much fun with this camera. The video quality is amazing. I originally purchased the HD model for my husband and as soon as the 4K was released we pre-ordered the device. I have not used by GoPro since picking up the 360fly. Editing and sharing to FB with my iPHONE 6S is very fast. I would recommend this to all my friends. Once you try it you will never use another camera. The one con is that the files are very large and they are filling up my 16GB iPhone. I transfer them to my PC but the files are much bigger then the HD model.

Good while it lasted Posted by: from: on It was an interesting new view from a camera since it was a 360 view, but a few weeks after I bought it, it died out on me. I was given a credit since I had the warranty, but I'm still debating whether I want to buy the camera again.

Good idea poor execution Posted by: from: on I watched cool videos online before bought thi cam. I want to make panoramic video inside freedom tower in NY. Needles to say performance was poor. It's not 4 k It's worst than my phone making video. Power problems. You. Can't take it for a long trip shots like cruse around the city. You have to recharge it. But main point shooting quality. Specially low light rooms quality beyond poor. So, idea good execution of it too fresh not what you see in you tube. Returned 2 days after

Great camera but app leaves alot to be desired Posted by: from: on Worked great and has a great picture compared to others on the market. I have tested each one that is currently available. App is random and also camera is random if it will turn on or just sit there while you randomly push buttons and hit the reset button, but when it is working it produces a great picture. The issue of knowing if it was going to work that day is what made me decide to return it. Support was good though through their facebook page but it would normally magically start working before they would answer me. All in all it will get better as the application gets better because i believe the hardware is there.

I don't know who would buy this "4K camera" Posted by: from: on Trust me I know what I'm talking about.... I used this camera for a while and I wanted to like it, here are some of the reasons I just can't: 1) The low light filming and pictures are horrible, check out their website and FB, see if they ever post anything that isn't in full sun. The ones I have tried with even a few clouds came out very dark. 2) It is 360 x 240. and that is great, you can see everything around you horizontally, but vertically you are missing 120°, that means 1/3 of the screen will be black. Would you buy a TV if 1/3 of the screen was black? 3) It is expensive. At $500 I would think it would have more options. Really?, and action camera that records at the default 24FPS. There are full 360 options at $199, $250, and $350, for $500 I dont need 1/3 of the screen to be black. 4) It gets hot and shuts down. If the camera is in a sunny or hot environment it could shut sown within 20-40 mins depending on the temperature. Not ideal when you are filming outside in the desert. 5) You cant overlay GPS, altitude, or speed LIKE THEY SAID. I was looking forward to adding that data into my videos. 6) It is not 4K, The resolution is 288x2880 that comes out to a little over the 8.2 million pixels needed for 4K, However, the corners of that 2880x2880 images are black, 22% to be exact. That makes the pixel count a little over 6 million. Way below the 8.2 million needed for 4K. 7) You can't use your phone for any 4K video longer than 5-10 minutes. The size is just too big to transfer, and to work with the desktop application, you probably will need to buy a new PC. So in closing, if you are a professional with the right equipment, you would use a 6 gopro rig, if you are a hobbyist you should buy a cheaper full 360 option ( Theta S, Samsung Gear VR, LG) I just don't see where this 360x240 solution fits in the landscape of 360 cameras.

Nice, but not 360x360 Posted by: from: on The 360Fly 4K seems to be a well-built 360 action camera as it is water resistant (rated down to 1ATM, 30 ft), shockproof, and dustproof. It only has a single button, two pin holes for the stereo mics and the charger/USB connection is done through a proprietary magnetized base. So there appear to be no openings to sensitive components. It does provide a 360° left/right rotation around the center point, however it is only 240° up/down. For most shots this is fine as most the action is in front of or above the camera. However, it creates a stretched appearance at the low point and if it doesn’t just stop you from trying to look down you will see a void designed like the camera pattern below. The problem with this is that the higher you take the camera the more you lose in the image. If you sit it lower to get more in the image everything else looks stretched out. The best use I see for this is on the bottom of a drone, as it already removes the drone from the picture and the image you really want to catch is below and not just filled with sky. Though it claims to be 4K, the fullest resolution is 2880x2880 and when uploaded, the highest resolution YouTube gives is 1440p as opposed to 2160p for regular 4K videos. However, the picture quality is pretty good, just not as good as I hoped. Objects close to the camera are clear, but stretched, while objects further away look proportional, just fuzzy. The single button option on the camera limits what you can do by lengths of pressing. Such as 4 second hold can start Bluetooth scan, a longer hold powers it off, and pressing the button starts recording video. Other than that, everything else is managed through the app. The button and the bottom light up depending on the status as well so you can easily see if it is ready or recording. The app is simple to use, provides live video unless recording in 30fps, and allows you to make more advanced settings such as brightness, saturation, and exposure. It also allows you to edit and share the pictures or video from your phone. However, I had issues with the app locking up from time to time, or dropping connection with the camera which seemed to take much longer to get reconnected each time it dropped. Plus the fact that you can’t do anything other than record with the “one button” it became a bit frustrating to have to wait for my phone to connect just to take a picture. Also, on top of that delay, when taking a picture, there is a delay in when it actually captures the image. You can hear the audio on the phone, see the “one button” change colors, but the actual capture is a second after that, as I have a couple of pictures where all I see is my hand grabbing the camera after an intended shot. The app also allows you to follow motion, creating a security camera type feel and allowing you to focus on action automatically. There are planned updates for this functionality according to their website to include other plans for future updates. The computer software is really basic and I was hoping to have more editing capabilities. It actually seemed as if the app had more editing function than the computer program. It basically allowed you to open the files, delete, and share. I like that it is a single lens camera, as there are no stich lines to worry about, but the fisheye lens effect that it gives is very distracting. I like how rugged it is, but there is no storage expansion opportunity or way to replace a battery. I like that it is a standard tripod ¼ 20 thread and includes an action adapter that can be used for nearly any mount for other action cameras. However, for the price I feel there are better options out there. Just since my purchase they have already started an offer for $100 less (Till 8/1). I think with some software and firmware updates to help speed up the camera function, or maybe add a timer like other cameras, it is a decent 360 camera for those that are going to be rough with it. I’d give it 3.5 stars if it were an option and I personally would recommend a different 360 camera to a friend.

Not bad for a starter 360 Posted by: from: on This camera is ok. It's not a full 360°. Know that before you buy this. If you want an affordable full 360° camera wait for the Samsung. Other than that it does an amazing job. There is no way to put in an external memory card, but it does have awesome motion tracking and does hold up to the elements. Ive taken it ocean kayaking and have sent it up to 100k feet on a weather balloon at -87°F.
