Tech Digest is really pleased to announce its latest partnership. Those nice people at Kodak have given us their brand new portable VR camera to shoot a series of eight short films in and around London before Xmas (I think we’re gonna be a bit busy over the next few weeks).
Called the Kodak PixPro 4K VR360, it’s a compact little camera with twin domes (one either side) of the white housing, each with a fixed focus 20 megapixel lens.
And while VR is great (just check out https://www.youtube.com/vr using a VR headset or Google Cardboard), that’s not all this clever little box of tricks will do.
Using the PixPro app on your iPhone or your Android smartphone, you can choose from a wide range of filming angles from 91 degrees right through to 360 degrees. This includes a 197 degrees wide-angle lens and a hemisphere view with a 235 degrees super wide-angle lens.
Also on board are various filming options, including the ability to shoot time lapse footage (we’ve featured some in our video below).
Over the course of the next four weeks, we’re going to be filming in and around London with this cute looking £399 VR camera. You can check our first taster video below which gives you a little glimpse of what the Kodak PixPro can do (we think it’s pretty good for the price).
Also don’t forget to look out for future videos from Tech Digest and ShinyShiny, many of which will be filmed totally in VR so you will have to wear a headset to get the full experience!
