Accepted submission by takyon at 2017-11-01 20:42:31

Here's another 360° video camera []:

There are quite a few 360-degree cameras on the market now and they cover a range of needs. For professionals and major VR buffs, there's the Samsung 360 Round [] and for more casual videographers there are a slew of options from companies like Ricoh Theta [], Garmin [] and Samsung []. But there's now a growing market for those wanting to shoot high quality 360-degree video and decide later on during editing what images to focus on and what to cut out, minimizing how much effort is required during the actual video-capturing process. For that, there's the GoPro Fusion [], the Insta360 [] and, as of today, the Rylo [].

Rylo has two 208-degree wide-angle lenses that capture your entire surroundings in 4K resolution. Its stabilization technology even allows you to carry the camera while shooting and still get a smooth image. To edit your video, plug it into your iPhone and use the companion app to easily find what frames you want to include in your HD video or alternatively, download the whole thing for a fully immersive 360-degree viewing experience. You can then easily post your videos on Instagram, Facebook or share them directly with others.

It will ship with a 16 GB MicroSD card. How is that even remotely enough storage for 360° video?
