Introduction to LG G5 360

Designed and manufactured by LG, this is very likely the cheapest 360 degree camera on the market that is actually worth owning. I would venture to say that this is actually the best entry level 360 camera that you can get your hands on. If you are curious about the technology and looking to experiment with something new, fresh, and exciting, LG’s G5 360 is not a bad direction to move in.

Are LG G5 360 Specs Special?

Other than its affordability, there are a lot of positive features that come along with this particular camera. It is very portable and totally pocket-sized; 1.6 x 1 x 3.8 inches and 2.7 ounces / 0.17 pounds. It is generally a user friendly device, and, with three microphones, it boasts surprisingly good sound capture.

The downside to this, however, is that there is no microphone jack for higher quality sound. Still, LG’s G5 360 is simple to understand and use, and it can be remotely turned on from standby mode due to the device’s WiFi and Bluetooth features. Using the cameras two 13 MB sensors, the video is captured in a full 360 x 360 manner, and the resolution comes in at 2K– 2,560 x 1,280 for video (at 30 frames per second) and 16 megapixels (5,660 x 2,830) for photographic images.

Conclusion: LG G5 Camera

With this device, you can take 180 degree panoramas as well as 360 degree spherical shots. The battery is 1200mAh, which provided a longer lasting life than the batteries that many competitors run on. The media that you capture can be uploaded very simply to Google Street View and Youtube360. The companion app to be used with your mobile device is exciting, and provides a very easy way to press the shutter button and then distance yourself from the shot.
