The camera finally started shipping, and I got mine. Verdict? Junk.
For starters, it's 1080p/30 (they keep magically advertising "2k" which is 128 more pixels horizontally). They promised, if they raised money and exceeded goals (which they did) they'd offer 4K/30, but the shipping product is 1080p. Additionally, being about 180 degrees (and not 360 which is fine by me), they duplicate the image on the backplane, so if you turn fully around, you start to see a reverse mirror image the other way. Wasted compression (from what I can tell) incorporating and compressing duplicate content. Would rather just see black when I look beyond.
In short, it's very grainy looking, the 3D is quite poor, and I wouldn't wish this on anyone. Going to sell mine off, and slap myself the next time I get excited by a product like this.
