720 VR
LG 360 Cam and Insta360 Air are among the lowest-cost 360 cameras but that hasn’t stopped Malata from creating clones of these low-priced 360 cameras.

The first clone is a copy of the LG 360 Cam (~$120 street; reviewed here).  The clone is called “F1” and here are the key specifications:
– uses two 200-degree fisheye lenses
– uses two OV4689 4mp sensors.
– photo resolution: 3008 x 1504
– video resolution: 1080p @ 30fps
– compatible with iOS and Android

The second clone is called “F2” and is a copy of the newly-released Insta360 Air ($129; hands-on first impressions here).  They even copied the available colors of the Insta360 Air.  Here are the key specs of the F2 camera:
– two 210-degree fisheye lenses
– photo resolution: 2048 x 1024
– video resolution: 1080p @ 30fps
– for Android phones
