Polaroid Remote-Controlled Panorama EyeBall Head review: You spin me right ‘round, baby

J.R. Bookwalter | April 13, 2016
The Polaroid Remote-Controlled Panorama Eyeball Head is a roughly three-inch black orb with the company’s iconic logo emblazoned on the side below a red power switch.

At the center is a camera remote, which requires a Bluetooth connection to an iOS or Android smartphone. Pressing this button causes the shutter on the connected device to remotely trigger for hands-free use within a typical 30-foot Bluetooth range, and works equally great for front-facing selfies or rear-facing photos, videos, and panoramas.

Leaving nothing to chance, Polaroid’s package includes two pieces of mounting hardware: One compatible with GoPro cameras, and an “other” mount for smartphones. Although photos and videos are best shot in landscape mode, it’s worth noting the second mount also works in portrait, perfect for panoramas; the mount thoughtfully includes enough space to access the home button.

Bottom line

If you’re ready to supercharge your panoramic shots, the Polaroid Panorama Eyeball Head is an affordable way to get the complete picture from any tripod or tabletop.
