At IBC 2018 in Amsterdam, iFootage showed off its new X2 Mini, which can be used to capture 360-degree photo using a DSLR.
The X2 Mini is controlled via an app, currently only available for iPhone with Android support coming by the end of September.
Within the app, 360 photographers can select the “stitching” feature, choose panoramic mode, and input their camera and lens information. Then, the app automatically calculates how many photos are required to capture the full 360 image and will rotate and tilt automatically.
The user can then use stitching software such as PTgui or Hugin to stitch those images into a high-resolution 360-degree photo.
The X2 Mini will soon be available for 560€ through local distributors or the iFootage website.
