Deal: The LG 360 CAM is currently on sale for 50-percent off
LG hasn't been doing so hot lately. The company's been reporting quarterly losses ever since Q2 of 2015, and as we learned earlier today, a new CEO is being appointed to LG's mobile division to try and get itself out of the rut that it's currently in. The LG G5 was supposed to be the company's biggest and most popular flagship phone of the year, and while it brought some interesting ideas and powerful specs to the table, its modular implementation failed for a couple different reasons - virtually no support from third parties and users being forced to power off the phone when swapping out one of the Friends (LG's name for mods on the phone). 

One of the accessories that was introduced alongside the LG G5 was the LG 360 CAM. While not necessarily a mod for the phone, the 360 CAM was marketed as one of the bigger first-party accessories for the G5. The 360 CAM's ability to capture 2560 x 1280 photos with a dual fisheye 206-degree lens and support for 5.1-channel surround sound is all incredibly impressive, but its steep price tag of $199 held the LG 360 CAM back from any potential greatness.


If you're looking for a fun Christmas present or want to try your hand out at 360-degree photography, DailySteals is currently selling the LG 360 CAM at a 50-percent discount. Rather than shelling out the full $199 retail price, you can score the 360 CAM for just $99. It certainly is a fun little accessory to play around with, but with the deal ending in 3 days, you might want to get your order in soon to ensure you don't miss out on the savings.

Well worth it, especially at that price. The other thing is this article makes it sound like this 360 camera is only for the LG G5. However it supports any Android smart or tablet, plus iPhone's and iPads as well. Not to mention you can use put the micro SD card in any Windows computer and grab the 360 pictures or videos. Like i said well worth it.

So what does it do? I don't really see anything about it that makes me want to shell out $100 for it.

It'll capture a fisheye picture, quite nicer quality than your iPhone I might add. You could use it to take fishy selfies of yourself as you may not have a better use -and then come back and tell us how much better the iPhone camera is of course...

If you want a panoramic picture, then it is much better to use this 360 camera. One click with this 360 camera, and you have captured everything around with a single 16 mp image. Try that on an iPhone, and it can take some time, plus when you move the phone around objects and people can move, therefore your panoramic image will look funny. Not to mention this camera has multiple mics and can record 5.1 surround sound. Like I said well worth it.
