QooCam: World’s First interchangeable 4K 360° & 3D Camera

$542,822

QooCam is the world’s first 4K camera that combines the most innovative features of both 360° & 3D stereo filming technology. Thanks to its unique 3 lenses, IMU stabilizer, and cutting-edge depthmap tech, QooCam features shake free, after-shooting refocus, 120 FPS, and time-lapse capabilities

Doesn’t matter if you are a professional or just getting started, you can freely direct and edit all your moments like a pro with QooCam’s Master Editor app.

If you don't know how to change the amount of your pledge, you can follow the steps via this link.

QooCam is designed for recording 4K videos and photos with a full 360° range. Thanks to its 4K with full sensor readout, you can record the memorable moments in great details and create high quality 360 videos on the go.

PS: 360º 4K means the entire 360º video or photo is in 4K resolution. However, since you can only view the 360º video or photo in the different field of view and not the whole image, the content quality you’re watching on the traditional sized screen is going to be less than 4K.

Using the latest and most revolutionary depth-based technology, QooCam allows you to refocus photos after shooting them. When shooting in the 3D 180º mode, QooCam can estimate the distance of the subjects in the frame and generate a depth map for special effects post-filming. 

Now, you can edit your photo and choose which the main subject of the content after shooting.

Tap on wherever you want to focus in. You will be able to create a bokeh effect, to enhance the subject in focus while giving the picture a fine background at the same time.

Stop compromising when creating high-speed action shots, with the built-in IMU sensor plus the real-time stabilization software technology, and in-house algorithm, you can achieve shake-free shots and smooth videos even without a physical stabilizer.

Qoocam’s stitching free feature automatically combines the images of both the lenses into one 360° spherical image. Thanks to its real-time optical flow stitching algorithm, you can directly get the perfect stitching on your 360° photo or video with just your smartphone.

You can capture the 360° VR or 180° 3D video at 4K/60fps and 2K/120fps. You can easily create the highly used slow motion effect. There are endless possibilities for you to create with.

Built with a full aviation-grade anodized aluminum alloy body and CNC machined, Qoocam only weighs 170g; making it durable and good for cooling. It’s lightweight and durable body is perfect to carry around anywhere you go.

Built to last longer, Qoocam’s battery supports 2600mAh, offering up to 180 minutes of continuous recording with a single charge.

You can use the external Micro SD card to expand the camera's storage up to 256GB. You’ll have more freedom to shoot and record without the fear of storage shortage.

With the Master Editor app, you can easily reframe and create 2D edits to your panoramic content with a simple tap and drag between the different points of views. Set the keyframes in your 360° videos and the app will automatically pan or zoom the 360° video to let you direct like a pro.

We’ve revealed and introduced the QooCam and Obsidian at the CES, SXSW, NAB and IBC show. We have received much positive feedback and rave from people from all over the world during our tech convention reveals because of its unique design and innovative technology.

It took us more than a year to design and test the prototypes and samples. We’ve currently just finished the hardware testings and designs. We will continue to work towards finishing the software to improve its performance.

Ps: This photo was shot by Kandao Obsidian.

We are Kandao, a geek team specializing in the virtual reality technology. We believe the VR tech will totally change the recording life’s way of everyone. We want and push VR to become the part of our life.

We founded in 2016 and dedicated to providing high-end professional imagery software solution and hardware manufacturer for VR/AR content creation. We had built 3 professional grade VR cameras which were highly recommended in the industry, the Obsidian R named as one of the best VR cameras.

We want to this time, the consumer grade camera can bring you a better VR recording experience.

The achievement we got before Qoocam 

  • Kandao Technology’s founders and core team members: coming from top universities all around the world with years of industrial experience and expertise in 360- degree camera system, VR/AR content capturing control, deep learning based software, live streaming and VR playback technology.
  • Kandao Obsidian 3D VR camera: CES 2017 “Best of Innovation” award owner in digital imaging category.  
  • Kandao Ranked Top in KITTI Benchmark, an internationally authoritative public benchmark dataset, which represents the best stereoscopic and depth algorithm in industry and academic research.

The Flagship VR Camera Series: Obsidian

As a company dedicating to the pursuit of pioneering technology, Kandao strives to make conceptual ideas into easy-to-use products, which drives our innovative design and ensures unmatched user design.

Obsidian Featured in Media

For their work, the Obsidian has already found early success. The camera was named a "Best of Innovation Honoree" in the Digital Imaging Product Category at this past CES.Simply press the button, and the Obsidian can process the images or videos captured by the six fish-eye lenses to form one seamless video.   -Forbes

Hollywood-level 3D, 360 videos is getting as bit more accessible. The China-based VR company Kandao announced the Obsidian Go, a more affordable alternative to the company’s high-end 3D 360 cameras. -Digital Trends

Although Kandao’s depth mapping and 6 DOF features are impressive enough from a single-camera capture system’s free software, Kandao’s long game is far more game-changing. -Immersive shooter

Risks and challenges

Before launching our project on Kickstarter, we’ve made multiple prototypes for QooCam, went through multiple rounds of manufacturing feedback with our partners, and built out a detailed schedule. Apart from QooCam, we’re experienced in building professional grade VR cameras.

Therefore, we already have existing tech and partners to cooperate with the product design and production. The above videos and pictures shown on the campaign page are real working prototypes. We’ve also conducted our pilot production and sent out samples for media coverage. Your strong support is the greatest reward for us. We are committed to delivering QooCam on time with the highest quality. Should there be any uncontrollable factors contributing to delays, we will keep you, our awesome backers, up to date and you can also reach out to us anytime at qoocam@kandao.tech
