Panoramic shots can capture the view but limit the observer to a single plane. The new Bublcam 360 degree camera removes all blind spots for a true 360-degree spherical capture, giving viewers the ability to truly explore every direction of the shot as if they were there.
Bublcam is a digital 360 degree camera housed in a rugged aluminum die-cast package and small enough to go anywhere. It uses four 190-degree cameras to capture a complete spherical view of the world recording video at 30fps for 720p, 15fps for 1080p or can take 14 megapixel images. The real magic of Bublcam is in the software that uses a heat mapped blending process to stitch the four-quadrant camera input into a complete 360 degree spherical video or image. Bublcam uses a micro SD card to store captured media or users can connect the device to their computer through micro-USB or wirelessly to a mobile device and live stream any content. Bublcam uses a standard tripod mount and with the on-board three-axis accelerometer, shooters get a steady capture wherever Bublcam is mounted.
The final version of Bublcam will be rechargeable through a standard outlet or by connecting it to a computer and will come in six different colors. Bublcam is targeting a release toward the middle of next year and while there is no official word on the retail price, the estimated cost to consumers will be between seven and eight hundred dollars. If you want to grab one for a discount and be one of the first Bublcam shooters, check out their Kickstarter.
