Product Description

BubbleScope – It turns your Samsung Galaxy S3 into a 360º camera

The BubbleScope is an optical lens attachment that works with the camera on your Samsung Galaxy S3. Together with the free BubblePix App, it instantly captures the 360º world around you in a single image or video. We call them Bubbles. You can then use the BubblePix App and a free user account on bubblepix.com to "cloud store" your Bubbles. Share them with the world using Twitter, Instagram or Facebook.

But you can do 360º with loads of Apps can’t you? Why do you need a BubbleScope?

There are Apps that create panoramic or "360º style" images but it isn’t true 360º imaging. They cannot capture everything around you at the same time like the BubbleScope does. They use either image stitching or video wiping to create a 360º still image that is made up of different moments in time. They are OK (if you have got the time to stand around taking them) for images of things that don’t move, like landscapes and empty rooms. But they are not very good for things that move like people and real life. That’s what Bubbles are all about.

The BubbleScope lets you instantly capture the 360º world around you in a single Bubble. No stitching, no hassle and no more time to take than a normal picture. That’s why the BubbleScope can shoot 360º video as well as pictures. The video is a truly immersive experience that lets you capture a moment in life so it can be experienced again and shared whenever you want and from any angle. You’ll see things you didn’t even see when you were there.

It is about capturing life in a unique way

Shooting Bubbles allows you to capture experiences in a new and unique way. Because the BubbleScope captures everything around it all the time, being "behind the camera" becomes a thing of the past. Capturing the moment no longer means you are not also part of the action. Just clip on your BubbleScope, hit record and get going. Holding the BubbleScope in your hand, you can preview the 360º scene around you before you shoot. It also features a self-standing mode so you can sit it on a table, hit record and enjoy the party.

The BubbleScope uses mirrors so it does work better in well-lit or sunny places because low-light conditions can result in grainy imaging. The BubbleScope is about the fun of capturing and sharing a moment of life in 360º, not high definition imaging.

Designed to fit into your life as well as capture it

The BubbleScope has a compact design with retractable high quality glass optics. This ensures you get the best quality Bubbles and also protects the optics when not in use. It also makes it easy to carry, so it’s with you when you want it. It fits nicely in your pocket so you never have to leave it at home. The BubbleScope comes with a neoprene protection pouch that has an integrated cleaning cloth; you can throw it in your bag without worrying about it and always keep it in tiptop condition when you’re on the move.

The BubbleScope comes with a special Samsung Galaxy S3 case that connects the BubbleScope to your Samsung Galaxy S3 and aligns it precisely with the camera. The case is smart, discrete and protects your Samsung Galaxy S3 when the BubbleScope is not connected. So when you want to use the BubbleScope you can simply clip it on. No removing cases or messing about. It’s a robust connection too so it stays connected no matter what you get up to.

Share your Bubbles with the world, or just your other devices

Every BubbleScope comes with a free user account on bubblepix.com. You can upload your Bubbles to your bubblepix.com account direct from your BubblePix App. That way they are backed up and you can also view them on other devices. You can log on to your bubblepix.com account to manage your Bubbles, keeping them private or sharing them using your social media accounts. You can even embed Bubbles (including the immersive Bubble Web Viewer) in your own web page or blog. All included in the price of the BubbleScope. Got an iPad? Great, you can download the free BubblePix App on your iPad and link it to your bubblepix.com account. That way you can view and share your Bubbles on your iPad too.

This seemed like the solution to traditional panoramic techniques - unfortunately it takes truely bad photos. My S3 has a 8MP camera and the bubblescope technique seems to take us all the way back to bad 2MP :( Video is even worse (even on the highest quality).

For me this was a wasted purchase - I am praying that an update to the app can massively improve functionality but nothing has happened in this regard since my purchase.

If you want quality output don't bother, if you fancy a gimmic thats fun during a festival etc then maybe but not worth the money.

Given the 360 degree scope, the device will capture a truly panoramic view. But it is impossible to get anything in sharp focus. Nearer objects will appear slightly shaky while more faraway objects are blurry at best. Still it is great fun and you can capture a panoramic view in one step.

I bought this a few months back when it was more than double the current price (£22). I paid about £49. For that price I expected a reasonable quality image that was in focus.

Instead I have images that are of poor quality and out of focus despite being in good light locations.

When I first received the Bubblescope I complained to the support team that the auto and manual align function did not work properly as I could not completely eradicate part of the scope that was being captured in the pictures.

This was later resolved via an app update but the image quality is just as bad.

I have tried the auto focus function but it makes no difference.

Two stars is based on the ability to take a 360 image but if you want a poor image then the current price of £22 is probably what it's worth.

Doubt I will use this again unless they work out how to take an in-focus picture.

I love the idea but because of the amount of detail that goes into the panoramic, it hugely the resolution of the images/videos. You might get a 360 degree view but its a blurry view! I think its a bit cheeky to limit its use to just one device also!

The picture quality is pretty poor considering the price,plus when you upload a picture to a social media site such as Facebook you can't view the picture on there you have to follow a link so over all it's not worth the money.It needs a lot more work on it

For its price it is a good piece of kit. I expected better quality and was a little disappointed with my purchase.

Far too over priced for the quality of images it produces, It feels like cheap plastic and fell to bits after 3 weeks. If you have iphone 4 & upwards then the ios.6 update lets you take panorama photo's any way also there are free apps such as Microsofts photosynth that do a better job with a little patience so don't waste your money on this.

Bought one of these when they first came out and it was ok for a bit of fun. Quite simply phones just don't have enough megapixels at the moment to get a great picture. Imagine a regular picture which is 8mp and then cut a doughnut out of it and then cut a little less than a quarter of the doughnut. The piece you have got left is the megapixels you have of the full size picture you see when viewing a bubblepix picture which is probably no more than 1.5mp at best. This accessory will become a must have device when an iPhone has a 24mp camera and produces a 4.5mp Bubblescope picture. These type of photos are brilliant on SLR cameras and have been for a number of years now but cost £500 or so.
