We’re excited to share an update on the Beacon. As you can see from the video above and many shots below, it is now working well. The Beacon now delivers on a new level of tracking reliability, speed, and accuracy, in all conditions.
We will ship to Beta customers next, before kicking off production. Please contact us if you would like to be part of the Beta program. We will prioritize iPhoneX and Android phone owners. We’ve seen the GPS accuracy on the iPhoneX is much worse than previous iPhones and results in disappointing tracking shots. For our Android customers, we know the Android app pales compared to the iPhone one; we owe you one until the improvements are released. Once we begin production this fall, we will prioritize shipments to pre-orders customers based on original order dates.
You can see more shots with the Beacon below, including several full-length raw shots. We’re excited with performance now but still plan to improve by tuning for a broader range of activities, fusing with our continually improving vision tracking capabilities, and adding additional types of tracking shots. We can’t wait to get it your hands and see what you are going to do with it!
