Using a self-developed prismatic reflex lens module to decrease its optical center distance, the Mi Sphere Camera boasts the smallest possible blind area. Featuring real-time, automatic screen calibration, chromatic aberration correction, smooth image transition and splicing gap elimination, it makes 360-degree panoramic photography a true reality. Equipped with an Ambarella high-speed processor and Sony image sensor, it takes 7k image and 3.5K video in one shot with effective resolution of 24 MP. Rated IP67 for water- and dust-resistance, this compact, ultrathin, portable device is a pioneer in the consumer market.

A smart little camera that gets the details right, like an easy to grip rubber texture. Logical, well-thought-out design, a high build quality and a robust finish elevate the Mi Sphere above the crowd. The handle cleverly transforms into a stand in an easy and efficient way.
