Impressive stitching capabilities are provided by the 360°-camera Pilot Era presented at CES -- it is supposed to be able to calculate a spherical 8K-video from the shots of its four camera modules in real time. The Chinese manufacturer Pisofttech has been licensing computer vision algorithms for a long time, including object recognition including motion analysis, and is now launching its first camera on the market.
There are four F2.2 fisheye-lenses with one 12MP 1/2.3" sensor each (as it seems without global shutter), and four small microphones for a spatial Ambisonic sound recording. Stabilization is achieved via gyro data. Concerning the resolution capabilities, there are contradictory statements -- while the press release lists higher frame rates (8192*4096@30fps; 6144*3072@50fps; 4096*2048@100fps), it is lower in the specs, 8K*4K@24fps, 6K*3K@30fps, 4K*2K@60fps.
The camera is operated via voice or remote via app, also a small 3" touch screen is available. The exposure should be adjustable and there are four preview modes to choose from (probably via the app), fisheye, VR, little planet and equirectangular. Live streaming in 4K via Facebook or YouTube is supported.
A TF card (microSD) is used as a removable memory. The Pilot Era camera with the dimensions 61mm x 61mm x159mm weighs 565g grams and is said to cost about 3,000 dollars, starting in April 2018.
