Wow, hot deal. I have one of these and paid like five hundred bucks for it some time last year. I'm guessing that the huge price drop means the company is in trouble. sigh

Edit: to whomever reported this as unhelpful, please see the posts below which confirm that the company is basically DOA at this point. They released a "bug fixes" app update 3 months ago but haven't posted on social media or answered public questions since April, so it's very likely that they are selling out the last of their stock. This device requires their special app and presumably won't work if they turn off their servers for signing up and logging in to the app so YMMV.

I used this (it was a loaner) on a two week trip to Japan and it was amazing. It takes very little effort to get good shots and they even added features through firmware. To me this price is a no brainer and is about half of what they normally cost new. Like others, I am super worried that this means the company is in trouble. I think everyone needs to decide if it's worth it to have a product that works well, as is, but will no longer have any support from the company moving forward. I don't know what to do!

Sounds awesome, do you mind sharing a photo or two from the device?

This is a hot price. I did just buy a 360 camera but *not* this one. I don't own the Rylo so my opinions are only from reading reviews and looking at footage.

Some thoughts:
>The Rylo is really cool and the software looks really improved from when it was introduced
>Processing of 5.7k footage is slow and needs a big PC. It can't be done in camera according to the reviews
>The desktop SW is Mac Only and post processing on a phone has got to be painful. 5.7k has to be done on the desktop i.e. no Mac means no 5.7k footage.
>"follow this" is seriously cool. I wish I could find a PC/Windows program that did this.

The 360 VR camera market is over saturated and all the cameras are dramatically discounted, most by >50%. I would not bother with less than 5.7k; 4k sounds like a lot but it is spread over 360 degrees and will look pretty grainy.

I am having fun with my non-Rylo camera. It is a lot more fun if you already have a VR headset.

Short battery life (1 hour with new 0-wear battery) and cannot record while charging. Would be nice to use a 360 cam on helmet for some low-resolution 360 videos (dashcam type recording), but 60 minutes from a new battery is just too short. Would also need loop-recording.

Interesting, from what I see you can swipe batteries, which somewhat alleviates 1h limitation.

any good helmet cameras with longer battery life? looking for a motorcycle camera myself. was thinking about the Rylo but that 1hr battery life is pathetic.

This is a good deal. I wished I'm a new customer to get the that coupon. Is there other coupon available?

By all indications from the Facebook user group, Rylo the company is defunct. Still a good 360 action camera but just be forewarned .

Do you think they still provide firmware updates currently to update the bestbuy models to the latest firm ware?
