Ever wanted to create your own VR-friendly footage? Well this discounted 360-degree camera is one of the cheapest ways to do just that.
Amazon has knocked £50 off the LG 360 Camera, bringing the price down from £199 to just £149 – that’s a 25% saving.
The LG 360 Camera features two 13-megapixel cameras, dual lenses each with a 206-degree field-of-view, 360-degree still image capture at a 5,660 x 2,830 pixel resolution, 360-degree video recording in MP4 format at a 2,560 x 1,280 pixel resolution, and Wi-Fi connectivity.
We gave the LG 360 Camera a 4/5 score in our review, praising its high-resolution 360-degree video capture, its direct-to-YouTube uploads, and the excellent value for money. Here’s our verdict:
“The 360 CAM is a promising offering from LG. In particular, it provides better video quality on YouTube than the Ricoh Theta S, which could be enough to convince those who haven’t quite been bowled over by the Ricoh offering that this is the camera to buy.”
Our reviewer concluded: “The LG 360 CAM ups the virtual-reality video quality a notch, and reduces the cost too.”
On Amazon, the LG 360 Camera has a 3.8/5 score based on 18 user reviews. Users wrote:
