I’m not even sure how to describe it, except to say that: if you’re a travel photographer/videographer, you definitely want one. Even if you don’t know it yet.
Motrr describes the Galileo as an app-controlled, robotic motion dock. Features include:
One-touch Panoramas: With the Sphere app and Galileo you are one tap away from beautiful, multi-exposure spherical panoramas.
Automatic Face Tracking: With the Videography app and Galileo you can record video while automatically tracking a person using face/motion/color detection.
Pan/Tile Time-lapse: With the IguanaLapse app and Galileo you can build a recording path using keyframes to create dynamic and repeatable time-lapse sequences.
Remote Monitoring: With the AirBeam app and Galileo you can turn your iOS device into a real-time audio and video surveillance system with remote control over the orientation of the camera.
Compatibility: For iPhone 5S, 5C, 5, 4S, and iPod 5. Requires iOS 7. Works in landscape or portrait orientation.
But wait: there’s more! The really exciting part is that, while it’s previously only been available for the iPhone, it now offers GoPro compatibility too (specifically: GoPro Hero3, GoPro Hero3+ and GoPro Hero4). There’s literally nothing else like it on the market. It’s a phenomenal product for budding videographers and allows for truly professional-grade videos and effects for less than $200 USD.
