Imagine that you just had a vertical mountain hike and you feel like the king of the world. A phone snapshot won’t 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 biggest obstacle when it comes to 360°angle cameras is that they are still relatively new pieces of technology. But manufacturers keep on making 360 cameras in the expectation that they’ll be mainstream someday soon. And given the support for the format from companies like Facebook and YouTube, they are right. One such company is MGCOOL which released MGCOOL Cam 360, a camera designed for outdoor lovers to deliver 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.

The lenses used is the most important aspect of any camera. MGCOOL is using two 220° 6G wide-angle HD lenses. Dual lenses can offer a true 360 panorama and save the trouble of post-production stitching. The Cam 360 offers a seamlessly stitched view without dead angles.

Image quality and frame rate, mostly depend on 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 allows the camera to snap 4MP still images and record videos at 30fps. The high frame rates guarantees for 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.
