Evaluation

It is startling that a venture company created such a challenging product with quite a high level of perfection. Although the product is not light, the layout of internal parts is balanced in weight and ingenious. The SSD is housed under the center handle, and eight 195-degree fisheye lenses are arranged radially and orderly around it in a good balance. Despite the product's intimidating volume, the mating faces of covers are uniform, and precision-forging technology and delicate surface treatment give a sense of high quality befitting its performance: 12K 3D 30fps. The product is highly appreciated by Judges in other fields, too, and can be said to be a remarkable product causing a sensation in the optical equipment field, where long-established domestic manufacturers take their places.
