Updated latest Firmware and App version, Tested able to upload to Facebook now!! hippie!!

MIJIA Panorama Camera, 360° panorama view, super wide angle and large aperture 7K still image, 23.88 mega effective pixels, two Sony sensors can shoot a panoramic image up to 6912*3456 resolution.

Unboxing




What's in da box.. there is 1 micro USB cable(not in the picture) provided for charging, power adaptor not included.


Top View

Bottom view (there should be a dock charger (refer to 2 gold pin) but is not available yet

USB port (Charging and data transfer) and SD card slot.
Micro SD card, class 10 and above (the maximum resolution of the video when you use the mainstream brand U3 specifications Micro SD card), support up to 128GB

Camera comes with a handle/tripod stand


Setting up Camera
Download Mi Sphere Camera by scanning the QR code provided in the user manual

Open App and ready to get it connect to camera

Turn on WIFI for phone and camera



in camera setting, you can see the photo resolution goes up to 7k!!


Do take note that normal Class 10 SD card unable to support, you need to get a U3 specification Micro SD card with speed at least up to 90mb/s
Recommended Storage Cards:
SONY U3 16G
SANDISK EXTREME U3 32G
SANDISK PRO U3 32G
Kingston U3 32G Scarlet Letter
Kingston U3 32G blue word
LEXAR 1000X U3 32G
LEXAR 633X 32G
Genesis U3 V30 32G

So I got myself a SanDisk Extreme in any major electrical store



Tested out with some pictures today, playing with the camera and explore it, the camera get heated up easily, can feel the heat when touch on it, another disappointed thing is you cannot direct share the image to social medias, although in the app shows you are able to share to facebook, but is only a redirect link to the camera app phone album - Refer to example below

Example: Clicked on my share link, it redirect you to wx.madv360.com, you can't view the 360view on Facebook



Photos downloaded to phone device is only a panoramic picture, upload to facebook also only a flat image, you cannot have the 360view.



And I've to found an alternative way to upload it to 360view by using a 3 party app.
https://www.facebook.com/photo.p ... 433793&l=781f35b904

Hope these feedback will be solved by improving the app feature sharing. If you have Mijia panorama camera too, please share with me what is the best way to post 360view from the camera.


[Updates] Updated to latest firmware 1.3.94.79.5.1249 and App version 1.6.3.12499, problem solved, now can direct share image to Facebook!!
