Lol, just watched a video review of this camera, turns out it's not really a 360 degree camera. You need to buy two to do that....I really wanted to buy a 360 camera at this price because I just got a quest and this would have been perfect.

Okay, so I'm reading into it a bit more, and it is SORT OF a 360 degree camera, DEPENDING on how you define that. TBH they're being a little misleading. They're expecting you to film with the lens facing upward, toward the sky, and the resulting video will allow you to capture video in all HORIZONTAL directions (and upward), but not capture the things below the camera. So it's like....better than a 180 degree fisheye, but not quite as good as traditional 360 degree cameras that you're thinking of. And it is more than a 180 degree camera, by the way. It's a 235 degree lens.

Think of it as making a CIRCULAR video, rather than a SPHERICAL video. You could buy two but you don't have to, this video does a decent job of showing how it works: https://youtu.be/y9ImKHzzopg

So while this is definitely inferior to other 360 degree cameras that give you full spherical video, it seems pretty good for 65 bucks if you understand the limitations. For example, you could strap this onto the front of a kayak (with the lens facing upward) and get some really good whitewater footage, because you don't really need to see downward in that scenario.

I've owned a few. It's not 360. Some of the modes are gimmicky but if you want a very wide POV this might work.
It's an older camera. I've had mine for over 2-3 years so not on par with new cameras and mainly use it now as a rear view camera when I do urban rides just in case I get hit by a car.

Would this be a good camera for an 8 year old who wants to make his own movie shorts
