360-degree video requires extremely high-definition footage in order to look decent, and the 'Pilot Era' camera from Pisofttech delivers. The consumer 360-degree camera, which has recently been unveiled at CES 2018, shoots 8K footage at 30 frames per second, or still-impressive 4K footage at a staggering 100 frames per second.
The device comes with four cameras — one on each face of its rectangular body. While there are other 360-degree cameras that have similar four-camera layouts and 8K capabilities, what truly sets the Pilot Era apart from competitors is its onboard computer. Other cameras need to be connected to a an external computer in order to be able to stitch together raw footage, but the Pilot Era can do that all internally, making it far more convenient and easy to use.
