In the past few years, we have seen some 360 Degree cameras from various companies and brands and each tried to overtake the other’s technology. Recently I came across a latest Rylo 360 Degree Camera made by a startup Rylo, a technology company headquartered in San Francisco.
An element of my ambivalence towards the 360-camera technology is that they are expensive and require a VR headset or requires a viewer to drag the video to find an object they desire to watch since it’s a spherical video.
The Rylo 360 camera, on the other hand, have tried a new approach. It does capture a 360-degree spherical video or an image, but you can later select a region which will then be created as a standard 16:9 HD video. It is more like an action camera which gives you an ability point at an object AFTER you have recorded the video.
Talking of the hardware, it looks much like any action camera having 2 fish-eye lenses that record 4K spherical video or 6K spherical photo but unlike any other camera available in the market, Rylo is made of an aluminum body which makes it even more rugged. It has a small display that shows the recording time and remaining battery, a small door for an external SD-card and battery.
Now to the software, unlike any other 360-camera, Rylo’s software is the important element that makes it remarkable. You can directly transfer the video to your smartphone with the cable provided in the package and the Rylo app provide numerous options for you to get creative. Videos are stabilized before you even start working on your footage. You can notice the effectiveness of the image stabilizer by recording a video without a stabilizer and with stabilizer, the results are remarkable. The app automatically applies image stabilization and horizon leveling. More so, this device comes at a reasonable price of $499, which is not too high as compared to the functionalities being offered.
