- Works with Android too.
- Very small.
- It is the way to go. My phone contains a pretty powerfull computer with specialized graphics hardware. Why should I pay for someone to make all that again to put into a camera I hardly ever use?
- Still picture resolution of 3840 x 1920 or around 8 mega pixels is
years behind. The Xiaomi does 21 mega pixels. Price is way too high.
- Even if it had 20+ mega pixels, the price is closer to a standalone
Ricoh device, when they should be able to use the hardware of the phone.
- Only compatible with a limited number of devices. E.g. it suports LG G3, G4, not my G5, LG V20. It may do so, but it is not on the list.
- Very impractical to put on a monopod
- You cannot use your phone while you take a sequence.
Can it take pictures in intervals and how many seconds are there between each? 8, 5, 2 1 sec?
I think their goal is to make a 360 camera that makes it easy to post to social media. Not to utilize the phones hardware or power to lower the price on the camera itself. The Xiaomi is a hard competitor and with a new Ricoh comming up this is not one I will be looking more at.
