Guardzilla 360 is a connected security camera with a 360-degree coverage range

Connected cameras have transformed the way we monitor what goes inside of our homes, but the Guardzilla 360 is a brand-new security camera that provides users with a full 360-degree view. That’s certainly different for a fixed camera, especially when the majority of offerings have wide-angle cameras that can cover a pretty decent range, but this one does offer a bit more coverage.

First and foremost, it’s a peculiar looking thing for a security camera, seeing that its pyramidal-esque shape is certainly uncommonly. In the middle, there’s a 1712p HD fisheye lens that provides 360-degree coverage …

Essential Phone now comes with free 4K 360-degree camera ($179 value)

The Essential Phone is one of the cheapest flagships you can buy in the United States at the moment. Moreover, the handset is not even one year old and its price has already been permanently cut by $200.

When Essential launched its first smartphone, it went on sale for $700, but possibly due to low customer interest it dropped the price down to just $500. The Essential Phone is available for this price at various US retailers, but Essential’s online store is selling it for $500 as well.

However, if you want a slightly better deal, you can have the Essential Phone along with a 360-degree …

Insta360 Nano S turns your iPhone into a 360-degree camera

A new 360-degree camera for the iPhone promises ease of use and very good quality of 360 photos, videos, as well as a few other fun effects.

The Insta360 Nano S is the newest product by Insta360, a company that has already made a few well-received 360 iPhone cameras. This latest one plugs into the Lightning port of your iPhone, so you basically have to hold your phone upside down when you shoot with it.
The Nano S itself is a tiny, pockatable 360-camera that records 4K video and takes 20MP photos.
The new camera comes as the successor …

Essential’s flagship is on sale once again, but you won’t save too much unless you buy it bundled with its 4K 360-degree camera. Speaking of Essential Phone’s camera, there have been several updates coming to the accessory, which improved the quality of the pictures/videos and added a range of new features.

Apple Clips on iPhone X updated with 360-degree selfie video recording, iCloud integration

As it stands, Apple Clips is sort of a middle ground between iOS’s automatic slideshow feature and the much more involved iMovie. The app was made with short videos in mind and offers users a wide variety of built-in image filters to toy around with, as well as the so-called Live Titles, which are basically animated (and optionally user-voiced) captions to go along with videos.

Clips launched back in March and now it’s getting its second big update in the form of iCloud integration and 360-degree selfies. Dubbed Selfie Scenes, the new feature makes use …

ION360 U is a portable 360-degree camera & battery case for your iPhone or Galaxy

It’s tough to gather the penetration level of 360-degree cameras on consumers. For starters, they break down to two kinds of camps – dedicated ones, and ones that are attached as an accessory. We’ve seen plenty of solutions from both categories already, like the dedicated Samsung Gear 360 and the 360-degree MotoMod, but the ION360 U is specifically targeting iPhone 7, 7Plus, Samsung Galaxy S8and S8+ users.

That’s because the ION360 U is particular to them, boasting a handy phone case that allows the 360-degree camera to attach properly to the phones in question. …

Chinese company has made a 360-degree camera that is small enough to fit in an iPhone 7 Plus

We are used to looking at 360-degree cameras as standalone balls, which you can’t imagine being housed within a smartphone, as an integrated unit. However, a Chinese company, named ProTruly, has already produced two overly large and odd-looking smartphones that sport built-in 360-degree cameras, and released them in China last December. The camera units in the devices were supplied by HT Optical – a company that has traded with brands, such as Olympus and Sony, and supplied components for Xiaomi’s Mi Sphere Camera.

Apparently, Endgadget had a chance to have a quick word …

Results: do you care about 360-degree cameras?

So, the other day, Andy Rubin’s new company — Essential — finally revealed the Essential Phone. A contemporary flagship through and through, with top-of-the-line hardware, titanium and ceramic build, an all-screen front, and even a courageously missing headphone jack. What else could one ask for? (water resistance would be nice)

One of the Essential Phone’s special features is its module port — you’ve got a magnetic connector on the back, which will accept Essential accessories with a click. And, at launch, we’ve got two of those — a 360-degree camera and a charging dock.

About that …
