8K VR Panoramic Camera Coming Soon from Detu
Professional quality 8K 360-degree camera will soon be available through Amazon.
As virtual reality (VR) and 360-degree video becomes more popular and more accessible, the technology that powers those experiences is also changing, to offer clearer, higher-quality picture. This in turn fuels demand for high-quality cameras to record better experiences. To answer this demand, Detu have launched a professional grade 8K VR camera.
The Detu F4 Plus camera is a panoramic VR camera capable of capturing images at up to 8K resolution, whether this is a 360-degree video recording, panoramic still image or livestream. The device features four 200 degree fisheye lenses, which have eight layers to minimise any distortion or glare effects. The camera is capable of capturing images with a resolution of 7680×3840 per lens at 30fps.
Footage captured with the Detu F4 Plus camera is then stitched automatically using the DetuStitch software. The device is also set up for simple livestreaming, either using wi-fi or an ethernet cable wen the device is connected to a PC. The Detu F4 Plus can livestream to several 360-degree livestreaming platforms, including YouTube and Facebook.
A 4800mAh lithium-ion battery provides power, and is capable of shooting for up to 120 minutes on a full charge. The battery is removable, and a Detu charging station can charge two batteries at once, a useful feature for content creators who require long shooting times.
The Detu F4 Plus is largely aimed at professional photographers and VR content creators. Detu plan for the device to be available shortly through Amazon, priced at $2599 (USD). Further information can be found on the Detu website.
