The sale is for the following cameras:

  1. Qoocam 8K: $579 from Kandao (regularly $599).  Exclusive bonus: selfie stick with smartphone mount.   This is the first 8K consumer 360 camera and features a larger 1/1.7-inch sensor (compared to the 1/2.3 inch sensor of other consumer 360 cameras).

Qoocam 8K has the best bit depth among consumer 360 cameras, making its colors appear richer.  Here is a comparison with One R, GoPro MAX and One X2.  If you look at my forehead, the One R, One X2, and GoPro MAX look similar, but the Qoocam 8K looks noticeably richer, with a smoother highlight transition.  You can also see the highlights of my mask are not as blown out.   I will do a more detailed comparison next time.

  1. Qoocam Fun: $149 from Kandao (regularly $169).  This is a smartphone 360 camera for Android phones.  I’ve been shooting a few weeks with it and will post a review.  It’s better than I expected. and in my opinion, it is the best affordable 360 camera for videos as of December 2020.
