Stereographic images and videos take a step forward
Hands up if you remember the View-Master and asking yourself, "Wouldn't it be amazing if I could capture everything around me in 3D?" Well that time has come with the Mirage Camera, but to be fair it's not the first device to attempt this. Those of you who had the the Nintendo 3DS will remember a similar endeavor. The Mirage Camera does go further with some possibly unintended benefits.
“Technology that takes you home when you are away from home.”
Initially you may be forgiven for thinking its just another 360 degree camera, then you may also be wondering why you should by a device that only produces 180 degree images and videos.
- It's light and feels well made.
- You do feel immersed in videos which is definitely a step in the right direction.
- It would be better if the camera had a built in screen for live previews. This would eliminate the need to pair the device with your phone for 'grab and go' shots.
-pairing the camera to you phone seems to be a bit frustrating, and a word of advice if you pair more than one instance of your phone (yes this can happen) none of profiles will work. I had to go in and delete all the pairings. Your data is safe but it's something to remember.
I like the camera as I want to capture more than regular images and pictures. As the technology continues to develop this is certainly a great way to capture moments with friends and family. It ready does need a built-in or flip out screen!
