Top customer reviews
Having experimented with 360 spherical videos for the past 2 years, I was super excited to see the Elecam 360 come onto the market. The Elecam 360 is a full 360x180 spherical camera that contains two back-to-back lenses that each capture half a sphere and which are then stitched together automatically by the camera. Elephone (manufacturer of the Elecam 360) is an up and coming smartphone manufacturer, which recently became interested in action cameras. They've released several GoPro type competitors including a top-of-the-line model that supports 4K. All of their cameras are very well priced though, but correspondingly do not present the latest and greatest specs. Nonetheless, just a year ago, I spent over $500 on two Kodak SP360 cameras, which I had to make my own custom mount to put them back to back, then spent another $500 on stitching software, to make my spherical videos. And now just a year later is a single camera that can do all that, including automatic stitching for less than $200! Obviously, I had to see how it compares all compares.
What Comes in the Box - The Elecam 360 comes in a fairly attractive cardboard box with the cover slipping off to reveal the camera in a protective plastic shell. Below it sits the accessories, which I have to admit are nothing to write home about. There is a handlebar mount, a helmet mount, and a (rather low quality) micro-USB cable just loosly tossed into the box. But let's get back to the camera itself, because it is actually a very nice piece of hardware. The plastic build and quality are superb, the buttons press nicely, and the small display is clear. There are just three buttons: power, wifi (which also activates the menu), and record (which also works as select). There are also three LED's: blue for power/charging, red for recording/connected, and another red for Wifi enabled. The micro-SD card slot (no memory card comes with the camera) and micro-USB slot are hidden behind a rubber flap. What you may find strangly missing from the box is the battery, because it's actually built-in to the camera. That means no swapping of batteries, as there is no way to access it without a screwdriver. On the bright side, the lack of a battery door does contribute to a very solid construction. Also missing from the box is any kind of lens cover or camera case, which is unfortunate since having lens on both sides of the camera makes it that much more likely to scratch a lens. I'd recommend finding some kind of case on your own to protect your investment. The camera itself weighs just 107 grams including the built-in battery. This compares with over 130 grams for just one Kodak SP360, so the Elecam 360 is definitely a much more compact and lightweight rig, ideal for aerial photography (ie. drone) usage!
Camera Operation - The three buttons are fairly straight forward. After turing it on by long pressing the power button, you can short press the power button to cycle between video and photo mode. The shutter button naturally takes a picture, or starts/stops recording, and the wifi button of course turns the wifi on/off. I did crash the camera on several occasions when I rapidly turned the wifi on/off, so there is some firmware instability there that Elephone can hopefully fix in an update. I actually had to look in the manual to find out how to get into the setting menu, which is done via a long press of the wifi button. Inside are actually very few settings, in fact not much of interest beyond setting the date and time. Strangly there are no settings whatsoever for video recording parameters (white balance, resolution, etc.).
Lens Layout - Ideally, you want the two lenses to be sitting back to back with zero gap between them, because that would give you the perspective from exactly the same point. This is of course physically impossible, but you can see the Elecam designers did their best to make a thin design. Compare the distance between lenses on the Elecam 360 verses my dual SP360 setup and you can see the big difference (see my picture). This will mean the Elecam 360 inherently can give better stitching, especially with objects closer to the camera.
App Operation - I used the Android version of the Elecam 360 app (which apparently is the only one available as of June 24, 2016 -- iPhone version shows "coming soon" on their website). After connecting to the camera via wifi, you can then preview in real time what the camera sees. What is very neat is that the images from the two lens are stitched in real time, so you can seamlessly scroll all the way around the view. There is even a VR goggles mode, where you can just "look around" at what the camera is seeing. Other than that, you can start/stop recording from the app of course, and also look at the videos/pictures stored on the camera. There are options to share video/pictures from the app, but as of now, it just outputs the raw format (more on this in a moment), which is of limited use without post-processing. In terms of settings, again not much is to be found. Under video resolution, there is but one: 1920x960, which oddly is not 1080p as advertised. Hopefully, Elephone has more updates planned to bring some more functionality to this camera. It is early days (the firmware and app are both dated just a week ago), so I'll wait and see before judging.
Video Output - So, as it stands then, what you get is what you get from the camera, which is 1920x960 video. The raw output of the camera puts the inputs from the two lenses side-by-side (see my picture for sample). Each represents a half-sphere so what you see are two circular images. Obviously, this is useless as a final output, and unfortunately, I also do not know of any stitching software that handles video presented in this format. I tried to share the video directly to YouTube from the Android app, and disappointingly, it uploaded the raw output instead of a YouTube compatible 360 video. Frustrated, for a moment I felt I made a big purchase mistake as it seemed like this camera produces video that can only be viewed from within the Android app! Jumping onto Elephant's support forums, I found that they did in fact have a video convertion software available for both Windows and Mac called "EleCam 360 Video Converter". I must point out it's not shown anywhere on Elephant's website, I had to register onto their forums to find it. I've written to them to tell them this software absolutely needs to be made public, so hope they do that soon. In any case, after running through the converter, you'll finally get video in properly 360 format that is compatible with YouTube and other viewers like KolorEyes (see my picture for sample output). The conversion takes time, for example a 3 minute clip took about 10 minutes to convert on my Surface Pro (Core i5). What you end up with though is very well stitched video, with a fairly subtle and well blended stitch line. In fact, the biggest giveaway of the stitch is because the two lenses are not matched for white balance, so you tend to get slightly different colors from the two lenses. Still, I'm blown away by how easy it all is compared to working with separate videos from two cameras and manually stitching them together on the computer.
Summary - The biggest downer of doing 360 videos has always been the post-processing. Copying files from two (or more) cameras, time syncing them, then stitching them, is all a big chore. The Elecam 360 makes this whole process relatively painless. Yes, it still takes time to do the conversion, and it would be so much better if they had an option to direct output to the correct format (it seems entirely doable since the Android app can obviously unfold the video in real time). All-in-all though, this is 360 spherical video making as easy as it gets at the moment. It's true that output resolution is rather low, and pixelation is very noticeable. This is because when you look at a 360 video you're only looking at a small part of the image at one time, and it's being stretched to full screen size. For this application, you really need 4K for good quality. But 4K, besides costs, has problems too, as file sizes become large and more cumbersome to deal with. So for any kind of casual usage, I think the Elecam 360 is an excellent choice and is a spectacular value for money. Just a year again, it would not be imaginable to get a complete 360 video setup for this price point, but now with the Elecam 360, anybody interested in trying out 360 videos can easily do so at an affordable price. I can't wait to see what the next generation brings!
Second disadvantage the pics & video clips output to iPhone are only raw format, can't find any tool for conversion to 3D & play on other platform.
Recommend don't buy from now until Elephone have a solution or have apps can render those pics & clips.
You can only see the videos you record on your phone or tablet, you can't; share to you tube as sphere 360 like we see some youtube videos. There's no way to upload to youtube like that.
Videos being posted online are either fake, or the people posting them are using some third party sofware to do it, which would take a logn time and would be very difficult. DO NOT BUY, GOPRO, NIKON, LG are coming with similar cameras which I am sure their sofware or app will allow you to upload the videos to you tube, or to see in your computer.
Unfortunately, although this camera is great, you can't really share the videos, or see them other than in YOUR PHONE with the ELECAM app. It is a shame.
