Some of its key features include

What I love about this camera is that it delivers quality video and images in 360 and offers in-device stitching without added software at an affordable price. YI 360 VR features semi professional-grade video quality at up to 5.7K/30fps in 360 degrees for post-production work, thanks to Ambarella’s virtual reality SOC H2V95 chip and a pair of sharp 220-degree lenses mated to a pair of 12MP SONY IMX377 CMOS sensors. It also captures 5.7K 360-degree still photos.
EASY VR Camera
At only six ounces the VR camera is lightweight, compact and easily mountable wherever you put an action camera – it can go anywhere you go. For vloggers who like to travel to remote destinations and record content, this is a great option to capture the environment around you. Simple controls on the device allow you to control the camera, preview, playback, edit and share 360-degree videos from any smartphone. Record for over an hour on one battery charge and the camera also connects with WiFi so you can view, edit and share instantly and continuously right in the app.
YI 360 VR features up to 100Mbps high-speed WiFi (Dual-band Wi-Fi 2.4GHz & 5GHz) to enable users to live-stream 2.5K/30fps 360-degree videos or download photos and videos from the camera to a smartphone. As the 5G platform is released, connecting with a WiFi network and streaming live will become more popular as everything around streams to Facebook, YouTube, and more at 2.5K in 360 Degrees. High-speed WiFi makes photo auto-sync possible and video downloads fast. Manual download will no longer be needed while photos taken by the camera are automatically synchronized to any smartphone. These smart cameras are the future of social media sharing, and as the technology of VR goggles progresses our world will be very different from the one we see today.
