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.
The relevant parts:
8.2 Technical Specifications / Photo
Timer: Off, 2s, 5s, 10s
Photo: Format JPEG
Photo Resolution: 5760x2880 (16.6MP)
8.2 Technical Specifications / Time Lapse Video
Video Resolution: 5.7K(5760x2880)/30FPS (and lower)
Interval: 0.5s, 1s, 2s, 5s, 10s, 30s, 60s
Video Format: mp4/H.264
With ffmpeg (and other software) it should be possible to create images from the mp4. I don’t have any experience with this though…
That way it should be possible to shoot 5760x2880 images at a rate of 2 images per second or if you’d want at 30 images per second! One could drive up to 540 km/h and still have 5 meters between the images (or at 2 images/second in interval mode up to 36 km/h, perfect for cycling!)
I see it at Amazon for $ 199:
I’dd almost… go and buy one… writing this post one would almost think this to be the perfect camera for Mapillary?
The result is now that I can use the high resolution movie setting and intervall, but the image quality of the seperate images is better than image grabs from the movie (at the same resolution). And I offcourse want the best possible image I can muster out of the hardware
I tried opening the camera up, but I didn’t go all way because I feared I was going to crack it open… resulting in perminant damage (hoped I could solder extra connection to the button and create an interval that way.
Mapillary updated their app, we hoped that would fix the bug I encountered, but alas…
Via the Mapillary app would be ideal… but I think it’ll be a while for Mapillary to get around to fixing this… so I will now try a machanical approach…
I’m on vacation now in France and brought the YI360 along for the ride. I have walked trugh the small village here and will use the data to optimize my workflow.
