360-degree video may be niche, but startup Rylo wants to do more imaginative things with spherical video: shoot first, then worry about composition later. Brainchild of two former Instagram engineers, the $499 camera can happily capture all the 4K 360-degree footage you want, but it really comes into its own when you use its powerful editing options to extract a regular 1080p with virtual pans, tracking, and more. Factor in excellent stabilization and a simple app, and you have to ask whether this is the future of action cameras.
The Rylo camera itself is slightly wider though squatter than a GoPro HERO6, with a metal frame inset with plastic and the twin bulging lenses. Each is f/2.8 and captures at 208-degrees, with the combined footage allowing for some overlap for better blending. On the bottom is a door with access to the removable 830 mAh battery that lasts for about an hour of recording, and a microSD slot; Rylo will bundle a 16GB card in the box, good for around 35 minutes of video recording.
