360-degree Camera!

Part 1

A Camera that Captures the World around You

Japan is good at making things that need a lot of precision, and is famous for its high-quality cameras. The latest invention is the first camera in the world that can take pictures that cover 360 degrees horizontally and 180 degrees vertically, thanks to a special new kind of lens. The new lens can take pictures that capture everything above and around the camera, all at once.

The area that can be capturedThe field of view

Imagine the scene: Your house in front of you, mountains to your right . . . a few buildings over there on the left. Behind you, the station. With this new camera, you can capture all of this in a single photograph.
