Elephone are best known for their budget Android phones. Lately, however, the brand has been venturing into uncharted territory: action camera.
Why I’m saying this is because Elephone already have a couple of action cameras on the market, launched on the trot. These are the Elephone Explorer (which we already reviewed) and the Explorer Pro.
It seems as though the success garnered on that front has encouraged Elephone to take its camera business a tad bit more seriously, which perhaps explains the EleCam 360. As the name suggests, the EleCam 360 is primarily designed for VR and 360-degree video; however, there’s more to the EleCam 360 than meets the eye.
Unlike some other 360-degree cameras you may have come across, this Elephone camera comes with not one but two image sensors on either side of the body of the camera. This results in a full spherical picture, unlike single-lens 360-degree cameras which produce a dome and not a full sphere.
Elephone will use the Sony IMX117 sensor with an f/2.0 lens on either side of the camera shell. Needless to say, the EleCam 360 will come with support for WiFi.
Word is that this VR-centric camera will also support 4K recording. We’ll try and get our hands on one for review… so stay tuned!
