iPhones and Android devices are currently deployed by user to capture panoramas. But, Tamaggo has introduced a new camera that can shoot panoramas with its 360-degree lens. Christened Tamaggo 360-imager, the 14-megapixel camera is built with the panomorph optical and software technology that allows users to navigate, zoom and crop high-resolution images after capturing.
It sports a 2-inch LCD touchscreen, which is used to perform the operations. A mini USB cable is used to charge the Li-polymer battery and also to connect with the PC.
It comes with Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity that allow easy syncing with phone and photo sharing on email and social networks instantaneously.
The egg shaped camera can capture the action taking place within the entire 360-degree imaging environment, unlike the standard stitching mode that needs multiple snapshots taken over a few seconds.
It captures images in four automatic orientations: Sky 360°, Ground 360°, horizontal panoramic and vertical panoramic. The ImmerVision technology enables panomorph 360-degree optics in the camera. It is compatible with mobile phones, computers, netbooks and tablets. It has an integrated stand to shoot remote images. It measures 3.62 x 2.19 x 2.40 inches in dimensions and weighs only 7 ounce.
The Canadian company says that the photography can be replaced as the Tamaggraphy since it is different from the traditional camera. It gives a new experience in taking pictures and performing the operations after capturing. The Tamaggo user can capture a 360-degree immersive image with one click by holding upright it.
The Tamaggo 360-imager will reach the stores in the second quarter of 2012 for a price of $200.
