8K High-Quality Video & Photo

Pilot Era uses top-class hardware and carefully optimized in-camera stitching algorithms, so that you can enjoy extremely sharp details in every frame of 8K 360° videos and images. Its large F2.2 aperture aspherical fisheye lenses and professional-grade Sony CMOS sensors accurately capture every wonderful moment. Plus, you can activate professional modes like HDR or Time-lapse, as well as adjust dynamic range, white balance, exposure, and other parameters manually.

10 times Faster than PC

Pilot Era is an efficient 360° VR camera for creating high-quality 360° content. Unlike any other product on the market, Pilot Era does not require post-processing on PC. You can choose to enable automatic stitching (while shooting) or simply click to stitch 8K videos/photos in camera. Benefited from a powerful CPU and a faster UFS 2.0 storage system, Pilot Era is capable to save you a lot of time and justify every minute of your work!
