Forget trying to stitch together the perfect panorama using Microsoft’s Photosynth – in theory, it’s a neat idea but in practice, not really. Instead, try something new. Introducing Dot, the first panoramic video lens for your iPhone 4 and 4s. So, how does it work exactly? You just snap it on over your phone’s camera, download the app and begin shooting 360° videos on the spot. Not only that, but the app also allows you to control the direction of the camera yourself or swap over to a panoramic widescreen mode.
The only thing you’ll want to look out for are scratches. It’s a pretty slick piece of glass, so they recommend you clean it often and keep it stored in the microfiber pouch they include with each order. Right now the lens retails for $49 + shipping, and comes with a variety of colored straps to attach the lens to your phone. You can order yours via their official store, but keep in mind it might take a little longer for international orders outside the US.
