TwoEyes VR Camera Review

TwoEyes-VR-Camera-Review

Introduction

This South Korean company has developed a VR device that, in many ways, is totally unlike the rest of its competitors on the market. In fact, the TwoEyes VR device is wildly unique, as far as 360 cameras within this realm of technology are concerned.

TwoEyes VR Camera Specs

For such a compact and portable device, the features are quite impressive. It’s a high resolution 4K camera (3840 x 1920 @ 30 frames per second) that features live-streaming, which has been becoming a bigger and more substantial selling point for virtual reality cameras ever-increasingly, it seems. The live-streaming feature is designed specifically to be compatible  with Facebook and Youtube, and there is also 32 GB of internal memory for all of your video content to be scored.

Video can be exported using WiFi or Bluetooth, as well. Using Bluetooth and the TwoEyes app, your phone can access the visuals that the camera is processing. Not only is the video resolution notably good, but this camera also shoots 3D video, which is a special feature that only some VR capturing devices include. The company’s developers believe that 3D is absolutely essential to the virtual reality experience, and it’s hard to argue that.

What’s with the Name?

The name “TwoEyes” refers to the dual lenses, but within that pair of dual lenses there are actually four cameras. The camera is based around two F2.0 180 degree fisheye lenses. Once you shoot your material, you can choose to publish it in VR, 360, or 3D, and the videos can instantly be uploaded onto Instagram, Facebook 360, or Youtube 360.

If you are looking to create content that is best viewed through a VR headset, TwoEyes VR makes those, too, and the whole design is custom built for exactly this– including the distance between the dual lenses on the camera. For the 3D content, you can use content or a 3D TV to fully engage with the potential of the 3D technology.

The price is $399, which makes this a totally reasonable option. It is slightly more than a lot of competitors in the same range of quality, like the Ricoh Theta S or the Samsung Gear 360, but the 3D element within the full 360 justifies the extra cost.

It is unknown when the exact release date of this product will be, but you can purchase the model ahead of time (with incentives) on their Kickstarter page, since this has been a crowdfunded project (which has greatly exceeded its original goal). Currently, the “estimated delivery time” mentioned on their page is August 2017, so it is quite possible that this VR device will not be released until well into the 3rd quarter of 2017.

If you’re itching to play with a 360 camera now, we highly recommend the Ricoh Theta S.
