Rylo has a single goal: a fool-proof 360-camera that anyone can use. The 360-degree camera was developed by a group of ex-engineers from Apple and Instagram, and certainly sounds like it could meet the lofty ideals set by its creator.
Built from aluminium alloy, the Rylo camera weighs in at only 108 grams. Two 208-degree wide-angle lenses capture 4K video at 30 fps or still images in 6K resolution. The lenses themselves have a fixed f/2.8 aperture; equivalent to a 7mm lens on a traditional camera.
There’s no built-in storage, and users will have to rely on microSD cards. Rylo includes a 16GB card with the camera, but there is support for cards up to 256GB in size. The default card is about enough to record 34 minutes of 4K video; which is acceptable considering that the Rylo is only capable of 60 minutes of continuous recording.
A feature available with the Rylo is the “cinematic stabilisation”, which crops out unwanted shaking from the video.
Rylo footage can be edited from a smartphone using the iOS app; freeing the user from having to return to a PC to work on the video. It may be odd to see the camera only have an iOS app, but an Android-based version is said to be coming soon.
Rylo is available in the US now for US$500 (approx. RM 2,123 ) from the official website.
