It doesn’t get more exciting than this in the crowded world of digital cameras, for CES 2014’s innovation award-winning Geonaute 360° Action Camera is aimed at the growing tribe of adventure seekers, who can now document their pursuits like never before in high resolution.
Featuring three wide-angle lens cameras of 8 megapixels each, instead of the standard single camera, the first-of-its-kind Geonaute 360° Action Camera is capable of capturing videos of 2K resolution (25 frames per second, which is 2048 x 1024) and photographs of 4K from 360 degrees, and can be mounted on a helmet of a biker or snowboarder for example.
Although it seems complicated, having three-cameras no less, its operation is simple—you only have to turn the select option between photo or video mode and you’re good to go.
The videos, recorded right to a handy micro-SD card, certainly give a fresh 360o perspective, once uploaded to the Geonaute software, which decodes the three-in-one video file and makes it comprehensible for viewing and uploading on video streaming sites like YouTube. Recorded in the popular H.264, MP4 format, an 8-minute video would take about 1GB of space. Geonaute also offers an iOS and Android app to make these tasks simpler.
The Geonaute 360 pack, which retails at $499, includes the camera, a flat adhesive bonding, a curved adhesive attachment, a universal adapter, a Micro USB Y cable, Li-ion battery and a protective sock.
