In Kandao’s legacy of pioneering high-end VR filming equipment and cutting-edge conferencing solutions, it’s the consumer-oriented marvels that have consistently stolen the limelight. Enter the latest addition to their illustrious QooCam series, the QooCam 3 – a diminutive handheld 360° action camera primed to take on titans like the GoPro Max and Insta360 X3. Priced at $349, this little wonder sets itself apart with a 1/1.55” sensor and an impressive f1.6 aperture, permitting more light to grace its lens. The result? A camera that excels in capturing nuanced details even in dimly lit settings. The QooCam 3 dazzles with 360° video capabilities, boasting resolutions that soar up to 5.7K, or if you prefer, it can deliver regular action camera-style videos at a crisp 4K. And let’s not forget the spatial audio, perfectly complementing your immersive videos.
Designed by the innovative minds at Kandao, the QooCam 3 isn’t just impressive; it’s a game-changer. With not one but two 1/1.55-inch sensors, it leaves competitors like the Insta360 X3’s 1/2″ and the GoPro Max’s 1/2.3″ sensors trailing in the dust. This, combined with its exceptional maximum lens aperture of f1.6 (leaving the X3’s f1.9 and Max’s f2.8 in the shadows), equips it to conquer noise in challenging low-light conditions. The QooCam 3 has the ability to capture 360° video at a remarkable 5.7K resolution at 30 frames per second or regular video at an astonishing 4K at 60 frames per second. Notably, it crafts breathtaking 62-megapixel panoramic photographs and records 360° 4-channel spatial audio in Ambisonic format, offering users the freedom to tailor their audio experience to their chosen framing direction.
In terms of aesthetics, the QooCam 3 bears a striking resemblance to the GoPro Max, though it leans slightly towards the bulkier side. It’s a tough customer too, ready to plunge into waters up to 10 meters (or 33 feet) deep, boasting an IP68 rating that guarantees resilience against dust and water. It’s a perfect companion for those adrenaline-pumping adventures. And on the software front, the QooCam 3 shares a kinship with the Insta360 X3, featuring an “invisible” selfie stick that cleverly disappears from 360° videos, post-production reframing, top-notch video stabilization, automatic horizon leveling, and a dash of time-lapse wizardry. Kandao elevates the package with a mobile app for creative editing and effortless social media sharing, while a desktop application awaits the more discerning post-production aficionados. The QooCam 3 is the embodiment of the future, seamlessly blending hardware and software innovation for a groundbreaking 360° experience.
