Z Cam shows new V1 Pro camera


Z Cam, makers of 360 cameras such as the S1 and S1 Pro, showed their new V1 Pro camera with 9 lenses.

Eight of the lenses are coplanar and arranged radially.  One of the lenses is above the camera.  When not in use, the top lens is covered by a lens cap that also functions as a handle.


Here is a link to a sample video from the V1 Pro in 7k.

Z Cam hasn't said if the V1 Pro is capable of 3D 360 capture, and has not yet provided specifications.  The lenses look like they have a 4.4mm focal length, different from the 3.25mm focal length of the iZugar MKX22 lenses used in the S1 Pro.

    1. Yes indeed! I'm curious how it will compare to the Insta360 Pro, which is 8k.

    2. I have no idea... If they make it too expensive then it starts competing against broadcast-quality rigs, but perhaps that's who this is for...
