LG announced this morning at Mobile World Congress that it has accessories to enhance G5 in ways that could not have been imagined the few years ago.One of these accessories is the standalone 360-degrees Cam, which is a camera that captures images in 16 mega-pixels.
This standalone camera captures photos and videos in 360-degrees. It’s equipped with two 13-megapixel cameras, each 200-degrees, allowing you to capture 180-degree or 360 degree photos and videos at 2K . It can record 5.1 surround sound via the three microphones and it’s rather compact at only 30 x 97 x 25mm, weighing only 72 grams.
LG said that the camera is incredibly light, compact and easy to carry, all the qualities that you want from a camera that is going to capture everything around you.So, there wont be much hustle when taking selfies.
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.
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.
You’ll be able to set up the 360 Cam via the LG G5’s Friends Manager and 360 Cam apps. LG didn’t specify if apps will be made available in Google Play so that owners of other Android phones will be able to get in on the action.The release date has not yet been announced.-DigitalTrends.com
