    Very interesting - mixed results

    Posted .

    I purchased the Lenovo - VR-Ready Photo and Video Camera and was quite lucky to get an early delivery. Bottom-line: Pretty nice...but not great. First - It is super easy to get started. There is a little setup - connect to Lenovo cell phone app, connect to wi-fi. All pretty standard and easy. Second - The camera automatically downloaded an update. No problems with that. Operating the camera is quite easy via the app. I starting taking video immediately. Video can be stored to the internal memory or to a microsd card. Note that watching the video on your cell phone is fine - but it looks just like regular video (2d and medium field of view). But you can manually pan right/left/up/down to see the extend of the 180 degree recorded scenes. Image quality is nice. The camera should be held quite still. The subjects you are video taping can be moving. But video of fast sports events may be too much for this camera. The quality of the lenses are fine...but not much better than a cell phone. These lenses are no where near the quality of GoPro. I also purchased Lenovo - Mirage Solo with Daydream Virtual Reality Headset. This vr headset or another HIGH QUALITY headset is necessary to take advantage of the 3d and 180 video this camera can shoot. The price is great and there is not another 3d/180 video camera at this price point.

    Close, but not quite

    I was excited for this piece of tech to hit market, but disappointed in the result. The biggest flaw is having no screen on the device itself. This makes it near impossible to frame shots and you're basically just hoping for the best. What makes this such an oversight is due to the wide angle lenses, your fingers will be in every shot unless you hold it in a particular and very awakward way. Another flaw is the device will stay on/connected unless you specifically shut it down. This a.) quickly drains the battery b.) eliminates your opportunity to catch a candid moment and c.) Means you have to wait for your phone and camera to sync every. single. time. Image quality is great, video quality is good. Hardware is of an excellent build and feels great in hand. They include an extra battery, but no way to charge it except via the camera itself.. which means a less than convenient charging routine. Definitely not worth the current price, but with a lower price and a few software tweaks, it might be worth it.

      Thank you for your feedback. We are happy to hear that you like the image and video quality of the Lenovo Mirage Solo camera. You can use your smart phone as a view finder with a free VR 180 app that we offer. The Lenovo Mirage camera does have a standard tripod mount on the bottom so you can attach a handle or other device so that your fingers do not get in the way. Like most electronic devices, we recommend shutting it down when finished using it by pushing the power on/off button.
      This is the first VR camera at this price point. There are others on the market starting at about 3 to 4 thousand dollars. lenovo

    Caught Mirage at a deep discount ($80) and actually thought about (and sort of wished I had) purchased more than one. It's definitely a great little device if you're looking to capture VR-ready memories, but there are some shortcomings...mainly the lack of a viewfinder of any kind. While it's pretty "point-and-shoot" - and the double fisheye lens should reasonably capture anything in the general direction in which it's pointed - it's a bit annoying to have to use your phone for assurance. The "natural" (for me at least - the way you typically hold a camera) on the device also typically ends up capturing my fingertips in the ends shots (the guide recommends holding it only on the top and bottom). Overall, it was 100% worth the money at the $80 sale price, and depending on your want to capture VR video/photo, it might be worth considering as an entry-level device at full price.

    Great for 180vr video & pics

    Is compact to take 180vr footage, but it should have a more easy indicator when is recording,now just change the trigger led color, but you need to remmember what those color means, why not to put a simply red color?
