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.

Kandao has launched the world’s smallest 8K 360 camera. The QooCam 8K offers 8K 10-bit video up to 200Mbps at 30fps and 4K at up to 120fps.

I’ve been using the original QooCam for about a year. I’m also using the Insta360 One X and have used the Insta360 One before that. However, there’s two things that have been holding me back. The first thing I’ve been waiting for is 8K in an affordable, accessible 360 camera. The second thing is 10-bit video encoding at high bit-rates (something that also really needs to come to smartphones very soon). The fact is, 8K is really a minimum to capture a full 360 with sufficient detail and clarity. QooCam has delivered this and more with the QooCam 8K.
