tamaggo Tamaggo 360 Imager, new breed of panoramic camera

Cameras have evolved. Quickly.

Cameras have come a long way since their inception. They are getting smaller, more powerful, and the pictures are clear and crisp. But even with all of the modern enhancements, the truth is that your average and even not-so-average camera is limited and lacking when compared to the newest technology. It’s the type of revolutionary technology that will make you wonder how you ever survived without it. Yes, it’s that good.

Enter the Tamaggo, a 360-Imager. So, what does that mean exactly? In its most basic form, the Tamaggo is a camera that captures 360 degrees of any moment you choose, all with one click of a button. The picture, or more accurately called a Tamaggraph, can be rotated in a complete circle and even up toward the sky or ground, depending on the angle of the lens. Capturing moments is more than just one single spot; it’s about the entire environment at that exact time. And without having to take separate pictures to get the full experience, all you have to do with the Tamaggo is just click once and the entire scene is captured and recorded.

The device itself doesn’t rotate or move to capture everything. It’s all possible because of the curved lens. Just like modern cameras, Tamaggo does have a way to view the Tamaggraphs right away, with a two-inch diagonal LCD touchscreen. It also has a mini USB port and the Tamaggraphs can be accessed through Bluetooth and WiFi. It even comes with an “intuitive orientation sensor,” so you’ll get the best images every time. And the best part of it all is that it will cost you just under $200. So, it’s affordable and innovative.

Using the Tamaggo

While using the Tamaggo for personal use, like birthday parties, family reunions, or a day at the park with the family, may come to mind first, it’s actually equally beneficial for professionals. Take the real estate industry, for instance. Realtors can now place the Tamaggo in the center of a room and capture everything—every corner and every window, a fact that many technologists and even the company have publicly asserted will likely be the top use for the device. Instead of taking multiple pictures that have to be pieced together to get the full feeling of a space, you now just have to click one button and have a comprehensive image that can be fully navigated with ease. The Tamaggo can also be used to document who attends board meetings, conferences, or training sessions, to name one of the many professional uses.

The Tamaggo is the future of image-capturing devices. It has the power to revolutionize the way real estate agents list homes and the way you remember those important life events. It allows you to basically step right back into a moment through vivid and clear images, images that could not exist with the new technology of the Tamaggo.
