Circle Optics Enables High End 8K 360° VR Capture
Circle Optics has a new 360° camera, the Hydra II with ‘zero parallax distortion’ and requiring no post-stitching. The camera uses Sony image sensors and is aimed at studios that want to shoot 360° video but don’t want to get involved with complex stitching. The camera provides 60fps images with 12 bit color and global shutters to minimize rolling shutter issues.
The camera is available for rental at $12,000 per week and the firm is working on smaller devices that could be used in drones.
