The Holiday Season is upon us. It's time to start thinking about (and buying) some gifts for the people in your life. Whether you are looking for a gift for a friend, family members, or yourself, we have some great ideas for you here at VJ. One such gift is the Rylo 360-Degree Camera.
The Rylo 360-Degree Camera is a new VR camera developed by a team of former Apple, Instagram and Hyperlapse engineers and is one of the smallest and easy to use 360 camera on the market.
The Rylo can fit comfortably in the palm of your hand, shoots 360 video in 4K and can easily be formatted for standard 16:9 video at 1080p full HD. The camera has two 208-degree lenses and includes a handy grip/tripod that lets you hold it or mount it easily so it doesn't get in your way. Additionally, the camera has a stabilization setting that can take your shaky footage and make it smooth.
The camera comes with a mobile app that synchs your video when you plug the camera into your phone and has an editing app that easily transforms your video into the 360 experience or can crop out a 16:9 section for standard video use. Just plug into your phone and the editing app takes care of the rest.
VR videos are all over the web these days, partly thanks to integration of 360-video on platforms like Facebook and YouTube, and new cheap VR hardware available to consumers -- particularly headsets that use smartphones as the screen. While in many ways VR and 360 as a video format is still in its infancy, it has shown to be wildly popular.
You can buy the Rylo for $499 here.
