New Yi 360 Camera


#1

Here is another new 360 camera from Yi Technology (not to be confused with Xiaomi):

No word yet on what resolution stills it can take or if it has an interval capture mode, but it may be adaptable like the Yi Action cameras?

It would be cool to see what the pics look like in different light conditions. Of course the pics in the ads always look fantastic, but what about low light, sunny days in the forest, snowy mountains, etc. wink


#3

Photo resolution isn't actually that exciting: 5760x2880
But it does say it has support for Google Street View, so I guess that means it will be compatible with Open Spherical Camera API?


#4

That's 16 Mpx and should be enough for Google Street View, yes. As far as I can recall, they accept anything over 14 Mpx.

My LG was also said to be compatible with OSC API, but I think the Mapillary team said they had to implement it manually because it wasn't fully compatible anyway.


#5

It seems to have time lapse mode but it turns it into a video right away.

If video quality is good enough we can still use the mapillary video upload (gpx file is required) .

Very memory consuming though.

Some more info on this cam.


#7

I see this camera is shipping now - only the early reviewers have checked it out so far. Specs still don’t mention OSC


#8

Just got the word from Yi support - it definitely doesn’t support OSC at this time. However it states that it supports StreetView.

Is the StreetView API a possibility for a direct Mapillary interface in the feature?
