LG announces the LG 360 Cam

LG announced the LG 360 Cam, a 360-degree spherical camera.  It uses two fisheye lenses back to back in a camera with a compact form factor, similar to the Ricoh Theta.  Each fisheye lens has 13 megapixels, although LG hasn't specified the resolution of the final image.

The 360 Cam (model LGR105) does have some notable advantages over some 360 cameras:

  • 4GB internal memory plus removable Micro SD storage
  • 2k video support (2560x1440)
  • 5.1 channel audio recording


At this time, LG has not yet announced pricing or availability.
