Are you vlogging in the round? While some wonder what the 360º format is actually for, the Kandao QooCam Fun goes for the jugular with a simple to use and thoroughly affordable warts-and-all camera that clips on to a smartphone. Vlogging cameras are everywhere – it’s one of the biggest trends in cameras of 2020 – but do you need a 360º solution?

Armed with two fisheye lenses that together capture in something like 4K resolution, and promising plug-and-play usability, the Kandao QooCam Fun is here to convince you that you need to add creativity to your vlogging. However, the format – and this product – is still as much about ‘film everything, re-frame later’ as it is about virtual reality.
