Camorama 4K action VR and 360 camera lands on Kickstarter

Often if you want a camera that can support VR and one that can support 360-degree recording, you are looking for two different cameras. The Camorama is a new camera that can do both with one product and it has landed on Kickstarter seeking funding. The camera can shoot 4K resolution photos and video that can be shared via an app directly to social media.

The camera also supports virtual reality movies and video clips when used with VR goggles. Movies that are made with the small camera can be edited with any compatible software and the camera supports live stream in any 360-degree app you use. Direct sharing to Facebook and YouTube are supported.

The big thing with this camera is that you don't need anything special to shoot 360-degree video. There is no software programming needed, multiple cameras aren't required, you don't have to download media via WiFi. Editing and sharing can be performed directly from the app on a smart device, and the camera supports record times of up to 90 minutes.

The camera uses an Ambarella USA chipset that supports 210fps recording. The 4k image sensor is from Sony Japan and supports up to 2880 x 2880 resolution. Livestream capabilities are compatible with industry codecs and the camera promises the longest battery life in its class. Camorama is seeking $30,000 and has raised over $163k as of writing. The project has 13 days to go and a pledge of $279 or more will get you the camera, waterproof case, soft carry case, mini tripod, and a selfie stick with shipping in November 2016. For $299 or more, you get all the same stuff as the previous bundle, but you get a remote control watch as well.
