Many of us taking 360 photos like to use programs like Affinity Photo or Photoshop to touch up and colour correct. This is always a bit tedious as you have to do the stitching with the cameras mobile app and then transfer to your desktop. Thankfully you can now enjoy the huge array of apps Android has on your Mac or PC, even if you don’t own an Android smartphone or tablet with an emulator.
I do love this little camera and you can do so many things with it, I thought I must try out the bullet time feature and there was no better place than on a near empty Maya Bay Beach while I was on Phi Phi Island.
MADV360 Picture Stitching Tool For Mac is for use with either the Xiaomi Mi Sphere or Madventure 360 cameras. There is no official desktop software for the Mac yet, which has frustrated many. This is a long awaited wish come true for Mac users…
If you are using some models of Samsung or Huawei mobiles, with latest MiSphere Camera or MADVenture360 app, you may encounter a ‘black hole’ issue where it seems only one lens is working. DON’T fret, it’s not your camera, its a known software bug that thankfully should easily be fixed.
Arrgh, yep the unthinkable happened and all i did was pull the thing open with no excessive force! Rather than just throwing it away i thought i’d try and repair it. #Xiaomimisphere #360accessories

Below is the same shot taken in both Jpg & Raw formats with the #Xiaomi Mi Sphere, then I’ve used different mobile post editing workflows to compare the difference to see which turns out to be the best #photoediting
One thing with the Xiaomi Mi Sphere photos the app does have a few stitching flaws. This can be rectified with the amazing optical flow stitching app from Yoichi Horota (more on that here), however the one thing that is annoying, you had to retrieve the unstitched double fisheye files and this meant either plugging the camera into a computer or removing the memory card and using a card reader and otg cable.
Well, not any more. Now we can easily do this with just a few taps on your phone.
As selfie sticks go I have to say this one is pretty sleek. The grip has a nice rubberised feel to it which gives you grip and confidence you wont easily drop it. Its light, compacts down to a reasonable size to fit in your pocket, albeit a little on the chubby side for some pockets. Overall Im impressed.
I’ve had the Mi Sphere for over a month now so I thought I would write a review of my experience so far and include some tips I’ve picked up
