      What were you considering it for; serious work or an amusing distraction?

      It's a variant of a mirror on a stick with a single sensor so the quality is NEVER going to be great compared to current multi-shot/sensor standards. Taking a 1024 resolution camera and shooting a 360 view with it even if it is only about 50 degrees vertical is still going to be not ready for prime time in any quality commercial sense.

      The Sony Bloggie is a toy for 360 and it's priced as one. Think of it as a Hoga for 360.

        This was early morning and it was very overcast which made for moderately low light.
