With companies such as Samsung looking to corner the 360-degree camera market with affordable devices like the Gear 360, while Google is going for increased depth with VR180 cameras, HumanEyes Technologies aims to conquer both thanks to its new Vuze XR camera. Having made its US debut last week at the NYVR Expo in New York City, the camera is gearing up for a November launch.
Unveiled earlier this summer, the Vuze XR is an innovative device that enables the capture of 2D 360° or stereoscopic 3D VR180 video and pictures.
Able to switch between the two modes with a quick click, the camera features video resolution at 5.7K at 30fps or up to 4K at 60fps (H.264 MP4), with stills coming in at 18MP. There’s 4K/30fps in-camera stitching available, with desktop stitching at 4K/60fps or 5.7K/30fps when edited with Vuze VR Studio software.
And thanks to the Vuze XR Mobile App for iOS and Android devices, users have access to remote camera control via a Wi-Fi connection, photo and video preview, basic and advanced editing, stabilization control, photo and video filters, and the ability to upload to social media, as well as live streaming.
“In designing the Vuze XR, we set out to deliver a camera that offers the ultimate in versatility to both consumers and professionals, and to do so at a price point that is within reach of just about everyone,” said Jim Malcolm, GM, North America for HumanEyes in a statement. “Its innovative, compact design essentially does the job of three cameras, making it ideal for activities like hiking, concerts, outdoor adventures and travel where you need to travel light, yet want the freedom to capture your experience in a variety of formats.”
There’s currently a limited time Vuze XR pre-order bundle available which includes: the Vuze XR Camera, a 360° Underwater Housing, a 64GB MicroSD card, and free global shipping — all for $439 USD until 4th November 2018. For further updates from HumanEyes Technologies, keep reading VRFocus.
