When you’re feeling like king of the world after a vertical mountain hike, a phone snapshot might not do the moment justice. But a 360 camera is able to record 360-degree panoramas and to capture everything around you.
No doubt, this is a reason why people are turning to 360 cameras.
The big barrier to entry with 360°angle cameras is that they are still relatively new pieces of technology. But companies keep on making 360-degree cameras in the expectation that they’ll be A Thing someday soon.
(And given support for the format from companies like Facebook and YouTube, they might be right).
One such company is MGCOOL.
MGCOOL has release MGCOOL Cam 360, a camera designed for outdoor lovers to bring them a different experience.
What’s so special about MGCOOL Cam 360? The answer is that it meets all the top considerations for purchasing a 360 camera, like the lens, image quality, and FPS.
220-degree 6G wide-angle HD lens
The lenses used for capture are perhaps some of the most important aspects of any camera. MGCOOL has used two 220° 6G wide-angle HD lenses.
Dual lenses can offer a true 360-degree panorama and save the trouble of post-producing stitching. MGCOOL Cam 360 offers a seamlessly stitched view without a dead angle.
Respect the image and frame rate, they mostly depend on the camera sensor.
The sensor in MGCOOL Cam 360 is OV4689 which utilizes an advanced 2-micron OmniBSI-2™ pixel to provide best-in-class low-light sensitivity and high dynamic range (HDR).
The 1/3-inch OV4689 enable MGCOOL Cam 360 snap 4MP still images and record videos at 30 fps.
The high frame rates guarantee crisp, clean image and video capture of fast moving objects.
Also, the OV4689 features a high-speed 4-lane MIPI serial output interface to facilitate the required high data transfer rate.
