This camera is completely out of the range of devices similar in functionality. From the first inspection of the device, it impresses with its originality. The camera body has the shape of an irregular cube, equipped with a convex lens on top. The battery installed in the device is characterized by a capacity of 1250 mAh, which is enough to provide video recording for 160 minutes without interruption. Moreover, this indicator was calculated taking into account the setting of the maximum resolution of 1920×1080. By the way, many users claim that the camera does not heat up during uninterrupted operation for a long time, and this is a very important indicator of the quality of the design and parts.
The main task of the device for shooting is to capture all the actions taking place around, and the shooting takes place with a maximum viewing angle, covering a wide area.
Action camera Kodak PixPro: angle of view and modes
Many people ask: why does the camera have a maximum viewing angle? Panoramic views are the best option for shooting with this device. It’s no secret that panoramas are usually created using several shooting devices by stitching rollers. Such procedures are complex and require large financial investments. And with the new action camera PixPro SP360, this process is greatly facilitated, since it does not require the use of additional devices.
Basically, the main differences between the modes presented in the device are interpretation, electronic processing, size, frame rate and aspect ratio. In other words, the files are almost identical in their appearance, their differences will appear only on the screen of the smartphone during video shooting, with subsequent use of the supplied software. It is this software that distorts and rearranges the frame.
Shooting modes can be roughly divided into 2 modes. The first of them gives an image with a square frame, and the second – with a rectangular one. Rectangular can be obtained by setting the machine to 1920×1080, 1440×1440, 1072×1072, 1280×960, 1280×720, 848×480, 848×480. This video shooting mode gives the usual picture, characterized by strong optical distortion. A square image can be obtained using 1440×1440, 1072×1072 mode, but you must use the software to use it.

This device has similar features with other devices for recording video files. The PixPro SP360 lacks large photosensitive optics. Therefore, when shooting video, it is important to ensure good illumination of the object, and the more light, the better. Don’t worry about lightening the frame, as this effect is neutralized thanks to the automatic exposure settings. In low light, the action camera will try to raise the exposure in various ways. The main one is shutter speed.
