Three Options to Shoot Crazy 360° iPhone Vidoes 0

Last week we did a post about the BubbleScope which lets you shoot 360° images with your iphone.  Aaron Campbell let us know of 2 more 360° cases that let you do the same.  Here’s all three cases featured with their features and limitations.


Dot

Dot is a strap on camera lens with a minimalist design.  The lens is the cheapest of the three featured and the only one where the phone is held int he horizontal position. The final videos can be shared on all the usual social media sites, email and of course, their own DotSpots gallery.

  • Cost: $50
  • Color: Red, Green, Black, Pink
  • iPhone App Name: Looker
  • Phone Orientation: Horizontal
  • Compatability: iPhone 4, 4S
  • Field of View: 360° x ?  (horizontal x vertical)

GoPano Micro

The GoPano Micro is an iPhone case with an attachable lens that started as a KickStarter project.  The lens looks a bit like a snorkel – allowing you to take photos with your phone in a vertical position.  Holding the phone while shooting becomes a little more natural compared to Dot, but if you want to place your phone on a table, Dot’s solution wins.

  • Cost: $79.95
  • Color: Black
  • iPhone App Name: GoPano
  • Phone Orientation: Horizontal
  • Compatability: iPhone 4, 4S
  • Field of View: 360° x 82° (horizontal x vertical)

Videos shot with the GoPano can be seen in their online gallery.

BubbleScope

The most expensive and newest of the bunch is BubbleScope from BubblePix.  BubbleScope fits onto your phone as a full case with a pop-up lens.  The lens pushes down into a nice holder which protects it when not in use.  The lens won’t be available for sale until this summer (2012) but videos shot by product testers are already showing up in their online gallery.

  • Cost: $110.00
  • Color: unknown
  • iPhone App Name: BubblePix
  • Phone Orientation: Horizontal
  • Compatability: iPhone 4, 4S
  • Field of View: 360° x ? (horizontal x vertical)
