Geonaute 360 Video Camera - The Action Camera That Gets It All
The first and only mountable action camera that will capture everything around you“.

How cool is that? An action camera that records a all around you not only the direction where is pointed. Here’s how it works … you mount the camera, you turn it on, you choose between the photo and video modes and you’re ready to go. Behind the scenes three cameras record images simultaneously and automatically combine them into 360 degrees footage. Once the recording is completed, simply connect the camera to your laptop and the movies are downloaded automatically in common JPEG and MP4 formats and can be enjoyed immediately (no post-processing is required). The footage can be processed in any video processing software in case you need to remove or edit anything – also check the GoPro Hero 3+, the Sony HDR-AS15, and the Panasonic HX-A100 action cameras.

The Geonaute 360 Video Action Camera weights only 200 grams, is shockproof , sports a 3,000 mAh rechargeable battery, is compatible with microSD cards up to 64GB (the 360 degrees video takes about 5GB per recorded hour) and has a wide array of accessories available (including a waterproof housing and a remote controller). Geonaute also features a play platform where users can upload their movies, share them and allow other user to embed them in their website 9like I have done with this video)

Check out the attached video clip and let me know your take on the 360 degrees recording mode. The clip is interactive, so move your mouse on it, click the left button and start dragging the view in any direction (quick note – your browser might freeze for a couple of seconds but everything will run just fine).

The Geonaute 360 action camera should hit the market soon with a price tag turning around $399 US.
