Besides being billed as one of the LG G5’s “Friends” accessories, the 360-degree camera is LG’s bid to help you make your own spherical, VR-like videos and still images. But despite a bunch of fancy features bundled into a handheld package, the 360 Cam is a bit half-baked.
This standalone camera captures photos and videos in 360-degrees. It’s equipped with two 13-megapixel cameras, each 200-degree, allowing you to capture 180-degree or 360 degree photos and videos at 2K. It can record 5.1 surround sounds via the three microphones and it’s rather compact at only 30 x 97 x 25mm, weighing only 72 grams.
You can quickly take a photo with a short press on the shutter button or a video with a long press. You will also be able to adjust the shutter speed, ISO, White Balance, and more.
The 360 Cam has 4GB of internal storage, but the included MicroSD slot offers additional storage. The 1,200mAh battery will provide up to 70 minutes of recording, which can be charged via the USB Type-C port. A tripod mount is also included and there is a micro SD card slot can expand storage up to 2TB (terabytes). Google to recognize a lightweight mobile technology and performance of comfort 'LG 360 cam’," Street View” has also officially certified as compatible with the product.
Photos and videos can be downloaded via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi. These photos and videos can be shared easily so anyone can view them. For example, videos can be uploaded to YouTube and Google Street View
