With all this hubub about how ‘virtual reality’ is going to change the way we interact with digital media, it was only a matter of time before there would be a more democratized way to shoot film for VR. For a good deal less than what a top notch digital camera costs these days, you can pick up the new 360fly 4K and start making VR content all on your own.
This device totally gets rid of the busy work of having to go in and stitch together all of your footage and instead allows you to shoot in super high definition (we’re talking about 2,880×2,880 pixels, folks) with the simple click of a button. In addition to the easy plug-and-play design on this camera, users have the option of shooting in a variety of different modes that range from motion and audio activation, to time-lapse. 360fly also makes it incredibly easy to share your footage thanks to a seamless smartphone app. With just a tap of a button on your phone you can share the 360-degree footage you took at the annual football game with your entire family. Prices start at $500. [Purchase]
