I have owned the camera for about 2 months now, and I can best be described as a holiday or social photographer. This is my first 360 camera, and by reading and viewing stacks of other reviews purchased this camera. First and foremost, it is brilliant. The quality and control of all my photos and videos is the best they have ever been. Great features I like:
Well built and compact
Great picture quality
Simple operation.. I would say point and shoot, but no pointing is involved, just shoot!
Great accessories available. Invest in the bullet time handle and selfie stick
iPhone/iPad app is awesome. The PC program is now awesome as well (since last update Feb19)
Things that I wish were improved:
The display is great (as most other cameras don't have it) but you have no chance to see it during the day, so you have to look at the LED state to determine what the camera is doing.
Also beware the camera isn't waterproof, you need a housing for anything water related (incl rain)
Also note that with these type of cameras, you will need to do some level of 'production' to turn into a watchable pictures or videos. Sure you can export for social media in 360 format, but for watching a .JPG or a .MJPEG every file needs to exported converted and saved. But this is a small expensive since every time you take a video, you have endless possibilities/angles/directions to turn into a video or photo, so it really is possible to take one photo, and produce many single .JPEG's from that one image. No longer do you have to take multiple shots from your phone or camera to capture every angle, now just take one. Funnily this was a difficult thing to process on my recent holiday, and I still took multiple 360 images from the same spot, basically a waste of time and storage space.
I also purchased 128gb (V30) cards with the camera, and you can get over 3 hrs of 5.7K 360 video on the card.
Needless to say I highly recommend this camera for even the most amateur photographer it is worth the price.
