    Since when is 2028 X 2028 considered 4K video? I thought the standards were 3840 X 2160 or 4096 x 2160.

    Marketing shenanigans?

    • See it’s very easy to miss the point with something like this because everyone’s used to asking the same questions. This thing is a very special camera and only those who own it and know what magical things can be done with it know what this means… i.e. it’s far greater than a 360-degree camera and the 4K thing should just be read as “even better”.

      • Sebastian

        I see…

      • Eno

        What 4K, there is no 4K in there, only a square 2K image.

        • Yeah but I’d still give these guys an award than put them down for the 4K claim. This is a remarkable device.

          Sony used to say 1080i is “Full HD” too…

          • Eno

            Agree on what you say, but the 4K name represents a false advertising and should be removed.

          • Do you feel as strongly about the xbox/ps saying 1080p when they’re not 😉

          • Eno

            But I don’t care about game consoles. If I wold care, I wold comment on those forums accordingly. 🙂

          • Neopulse

            “wold,” lol

          • But you have to care about the injustice even if it happens to others or else it would be selfish not to 😀

          • Eno

            😀

          • Neopulse

            Pissed me off actually about that game false advertising.

          • MdB

            1080i IS Full HD. Being interlaced has nothing to do with spacial resolution.

          • Yes 1080i is FullHD according to Sony, as I said 😀

            Spatial resolution? No… wrong term.

          • MdB

            Ever the ‘expert’. Sorry but you are wrong, yes 1920 x 1080 is the spacial resolution, you are referring to the ‘I’ part which makes up part of the temporal resolution of video. What you are probably referring to is the use of anamorphic 1440 x 1080 as ‘1080i’ which is not Full HD as while when anamorphically stretched it produces 1920 x 1080, it is not ‘Full HD’ in terms of spacial resolution.

            1080i not Full HD? No… Wrong term.

          • Lol it’s not spatial resolution. Can’t be bothered explaining these basics. Google…

          • MdB

            Uses ‘lol’ + can’t explain = muppet.

          • Learn to click on a link and find out about the person you’re talking to, grandpa.

          • MdB

            I know who I’m talking to, it’s a loud mouth know it all, who just doesn’t.

          • If you can’t read how would you know? Lol

          • I’m smart enough to know that one who can’t figure out how to search for an answer on google doesn’t have the brain capacity to understand the answer. It’s called pruning the audience.

  • Fudge! I got two of the regular SP360s… one is still in the box. *sighs and pulls out wallet*

  • Oompsy

    I’m seriously curious how well one could digitally stabilize the video from this thing, just using a smaller resolution from the center, and using the FOV as a buffer for shakes and movement. I mean, 360 degrees seems absurdly unnecessary and perhaps downright annoying to watch.

  • Pat Mann

    Looks like 180 to me. Is there another lens on the back? Does it spin around? What am I missing? Or is this another half-spec like the 4k?
