aNewDomain.net – Our Chris Miller got a hands-on look at the Geonaute 360 video camera. Check out the videocast below to see what Geonaute will be delivering — and find out what Chris Miller thought of this new technology.
At CES 2014, I had the opportunity to interview Justin Schneller, product manager of the Geonaute 360 video camera. In the video below, we talk about the Geonaute 360′s capabilities, including its three 8mp cameras, its custom software and how the Geonaute 360 mounts on GoPro cameras.
The Geonaute 360′s compact design has a micro-SD card slot and video resolution of 2048 x 1024 at 25 frames per second. The camera is able to make 360 degree shots in video, photo, burst and timelapse modes. And helmet mounts, tripod mounts and more are available, too. I’m especially impressed by the entire size — it’s just 1.65 inches by 2.83 inches — and it is light enough for even helmet mounts.

You’re able to use either your fingers or its gyroscope to move around the view. The Geonaute 360 also lets you flatten the video — and upload your videos to sites like YouTube. We got to play with the viewing software in the above video review. Check out how easy it is to zoom in and out, pan and flatten. It was amazing. For more, check out the demo video here. According to the company:
