Advantage and Disadvantage
The quality of the video for 4K and 360 modules is really cool 2) The application for the mobile is constantly updated, a lot of functions, but the phone needs a powerful one with a large amount of memory 3) Camera firmware is regularly updated 4) I use it on FPV- drone and not only, I really like that for this amount the same functionality comes out as that of GoPro Max + Hero 7 | 8 5) The stabilization is cool
In Pakistan, it is impossible to find a complete list of accessories, and, most importantly, there is nowhere to buy PROTECTION! In the first month, I scratched the lens of the 360 module, replacement costs 100 tanks, plus shipping to the manufacturer in China. The new module is 200 tanks, plus the manufacturer promises a discount on its purchase. They have everything thought out there)) I have not changed it, I turn the camera with a non-scratched lens towards the main frame, since the scratch is relatively small, but it is a little noticeable in the video.
In short – if something breaks, consider it lost 🙂 You need to buy a new module, and, of course, it is cheaper than the whole camera, but still very expensive. + For an aqua case, you need to buy a type-c battery, a frame and the case itself, which comes out in 150-200 tanks))) The application on the computer is not as functional as on the phone.
