Tamaggo competes directly with other hemispherical 360 cameras such as the 360fly and 360fly 4K, and Kodak PIXPRO SP360 and SP360 4K.

Etienne Leroy received a sample of the Tamaggo from the manufacturer and shared with us his unboxing and hands-on review:

Etienne liked the touchscreen and the live preview, which are not usually found on other 360 cameras (although many of them can be connected wirelessly with a phone to provide touchscreen and live preview).

Thank you very much to Ed Lewis for bringing this to my attention. Thanks to Etienne Leroy of V360 for the unboxing video and hands-on impressions.  V360 is a free 360 video editing app for iOS and Android that you can use to create video montages with transitions and titles
