HDKing V1 Pro with waterproof case and 8mp Sony sensor



 
HDKing V1 Pro is a low-cost hemispherical 360 camera with a waterproof case and an 8-megapixel Sony sensor.
 
 
 



Claimed specs
  • Field of view: 360 x 220 degrees
  • Video resolution: 1920 x 1440 @ 30 fps
  • Photo resolution: 3264 * 2448
  • Uses Micro SD cards up to 64GB
  • Enclosure is waterproof to 30m
  • Can connect to iOS or Android phone via XDV360 app


The sensor is supposedly the Sony IMX179 (1/3.2 inch, 8mp).  The manufacturer is Shenzhen HDKing Electronics Co. Ltd.

 
Interestingly, the HDKing connects using the XDV360 app, which is an app for a Sunchip camera.

 
So far, I have only seen CG renderings of the HDKing V1 Pro.  I haven't seen actual photos of it, so I don't know when it will be available.

 
Thanks to Edgar Pariente for bringing this to my attention!
