Introduction

The LG 360 Cam is a compact spherical camera that complements the LG 360 VR headset as a part of the company's push into the virtual reality market. It should be released around April 2016 - the same time as LG’s new flagship phone.[1]

Features

Much like the already popular Ricoh Theta, the LG 360 Cam is designed to allow users easily capture and share spherical content. It can be then viewed either using the LG 360 VR headset or with any other Cardboard compatible gadget.[2]

The camera can be connected to the LG G5 smartphone to shoot content, including video with 5.1 surround sound. LG has also made it possible to upload the content to Google Street View and YouTube 360. [3]

Hardware

LG described the LG 360 Cam as being a "lipstick" design. It's a little chunky for lipstick, but it's basically a flattened cylindrical design, with a cover that slips over the top for convenient protection of the massive lenses. The LG 360 Cam measures 30 x 97 x 25mm and weighs 72g, so it's highly portable.[4]

The camera uses dual 200-degree 13MP sensors that can record 2K video footage and three mics for directional audio capture. The 1,200 mAh battery allows users to capture up to 70 minutes of video, which can also be stored on a microSD card located at the base of the camera.

The LG Cam has no display, but it will work completely independently without being connected to a smartphone. A large button on one side that will enable video or photo capture with a long or short press, and other button is used to switch from 180 to 360 degree capture. [5]
