Cameras from GoPro and Insta360 are a popular choice for 360-degree shooting because of the impressive specifications they offer. But now, things are going to change with the introduction of Kandao QooCam 8k 360 Camera that leaves the competition in dust. It is capable of shooting 10 bit 360-degree videos in 8k resolution at 30 fps. For slow motion, it can shoot 4k in 120 fps which you can further slow down to amazing 960 fps using Kandao AI Slow Motion.

Kandao QooCam 8k is the smallest 360 camera in the world and also the cheapest to offer such specifications. It uses 1/1.7’’ sensor which is larger than any camera in its competition. With the help of 6-axis gyro, IMU sensor and advanced stabilization technology, you can capture extremely stable results.

For stills with high dynamic range, this camera features Realtime Raw+ mode. When enabled, the camera captures continuous bursts of DNG stills. Then it blends and aligns them al to get one 16 bit DNG and JPG. As a result, the image comes out with better contrast, sharpness, and quality.

In terms of battery, this 8k 360 camera includes a 3600mAh built-in battery that supports USB-PD 2.0 Fast Charging. However, it is not very clear how long this battery will run on a single charge. It would’ve been better if there was an option to swap the battery instead of a fixed one.

Kandao QooCam 8K 360 Camera offers a 2.4″ touchscreen still maintaining the pocket size of the camera. With the help of a Q button, you can switch between various shooting modes such as 8K Photo/8K Video /4k Video/4K slow motion or Vlog.

Kandao QooCam 8K 360 Camera also includes 3.5mm mic port so you can hook up a professional mic to achieve high quality audio. Kandao will also launch a Vlog mic soon which will complement this camera. Additionally, the company will also release “Selfie Stick with cellphone holder”, “Protective Case”, and “Dive Case”.
