The Panono is certainly a different kind of camera, but I can’t wholeheartedly recommend it just yet. It’s expensive and doesn’t shoot video. The coolest feature — the throw-in-the-air-to-take-photo — also needs some more tuning. Oh, and the camera needs to be made drop-proof. Seriously.
All of these things are surely coming in version 2.0 along with a lower price. The Panono is a fun camera for the 360-degree enthusiast, but everyone else should wait until it does more and gets cheaper.
