Here's a recap of the Hubblo's specs:
- six lenses, 200 degree FOV each
- fully spherical field of view in 3D
- video resolution: 4k @ 30fps, mp4 format
- 4000mAh battery (1 hour), or 12V DC adapter
- streaming via RTSP / RTMP
When I first found out about Hubblo almost a month ago, I was frankly quite skeptical. First of all, the design is a little unusual. Most 3D 360 cameras I've seen have 8 or more lenses. Second, I had doubts about how well it could stitch 3D video in realtime, or if it could truly stitch in realtime at all.
I got to see the Hubblo in person at CES. I had the chance to try viewing the livestream using a VR headset, and it was indeed livestreaming in 3D 360. There was a delay of a few seconds, but I still thought it was amazing that this was possible for a camera at this price range. As for the image quality, it was indeed 4k.
Another interesting feature that it had is that you could overlay a chat on the screen. Text would appear over the video in realtime. I think this would be a useful feature when livestreaming.
