In addition to field testing, we’ve been experimenting with a variety of specific use cases in the wild. This week, the name of the game was off-roading. We took a beta Lily Camera for a spin on recreational course just south of the city. As you can see in the test footage above, electronic image stabilization continues to sharpen with each software version. This clip is raw — it has zero post-processing stabilization. With that said, there is always room for improvement. This is a big priority for the team.
Hands-free tracking opens up a world of possibilities for four-wheeled adventures. If this is a use case you’d like to pursue with your Lily Camera, we have a few key safety suggestions:
- In the same way texting and driving isn’t a good idea, we do not recommend performing commands on the Lily tracker with one hand on the wheel. Instead, have a co-pilot ride shotgun and wear the tracker.
- Just as our marketing crew demonstrates in the test footage, it’s best to execute takeoff before you hop in the car, as opposed to stretching your hand out the window.
- Be sure to select an environment that is largely free of obstacles. Ideally, choose a place that is specifically designed for off-roading recreation.
We’ll continue to explore different use cases as testing progresses. If there are any specific activities you would like us to explore, be sure to shoot us a note!
