You might think that a 360 degree camera and lens is a novelty that few users would be interested in, but Olympus is betting that surveillance and security big-wigs will be all over this, since it captures images anything and everything. It shoots in all directions, with not 10, not 5, but just one lens. It will take a 360-degree horizontal image with a 180-degree vertical view, wasting no footage on feet and ceilings. Olympus isn’t saying when it would ship, but I’m guessing casinos and other surveillance type environments can’t wait to try it out. Video conferencing would be great using this camera since the camera can pinpoint the speaker and capture them in a perfect picture without any panning.
