The QooCam 8K is the world’s first consumer 8K 360 camera. After using it for a few weeks, I can now tell you and show you how it holds up.

We’ve previously covered the specs and promised features of the QooCam 8K a while before it started shipping. There can often be a gap between what is promised, and what is delivered. This is especially true for early adopters of almost any complex, high tech device. It can also be very exciting. The first recipients of the QooCam 8K have been able to follow regular updates to add features and capabilities. That doesn’t stop people being very vocal about things that aren’t working yet of course. Kandao are still rolling out the updates for this camera, and it gets better, and more refined with each one.

It would have been easy for Jonas Pfeil to pivot away from pictures and towards video.

Since Pfeil first started working on the Panono camera, a ball-shaped device that captures photo “spheres,” back in 2011, the field of 360-degree imagery has exploded.

But the emphasis now is on 360-degree video, not still pictures. Witness the Nokia Ozo, 360Fly and even Google’s Jump.

Pfeil, however, stayed focused. The Panono is for still pictures only, just as his highly successful Indiegogo campaign promised (he also got funding from other sources). It would also retain its signature twist: The camera captures photos when you throw it upward, taking the shot at the moment it reaches its highest point.
