IRELAND'S AUGUST BANK holiday weekend has arrived but my Giroptic 360 camera hasn't. I reckon the Chinese production line has slowed down and that translates into another 40 day delay.
I had carved out a special spot where I could connected the camera to a mains power source for several hours before creating my first 360 video. And I hope I can do that before mid-September.
Besides the Giroptic 360 camera, I've also ordered an Ethernet Adapter (contains an Ethernet port which also supplies power) and an audio-in port. The best videos have the best sound. I didn't get the Light Bulb Adapter because I didn't think I needed to mount the Giroptic into a traditional light socket and use it as a 360-degree security camera.
I've seen people use the Giroptic's standard tripod mount for things that any GoPro might record. I'm looking forward to taking the little guy along cycling trails in County Tipperary before the leaves fall from the trees.
