Abstract:Cameras generally have a 60◦ field of view of and can capture only a portion of their surroundings. Panoramic cameras are used to capture the entire 360◦ view known as panoramic images. Virtual reality makes use of these panoramic images to provide a more immersive experience compared to seeing images on a 2D screen. Most of the panoramic cameras are expensive. It is important for the camera to be affordable in order for virtual reality to become a part of daily life. This is a comprehensive document about the successful implementation of the cheapest 360◦ video camera, using multiple lenses on a mobile phone. With the advent of technology nearly everyone has a mobile phone. Equipping these mobile phones with the technology to capture panoramic images using multiple lenses will convert them into the most economical panoramic camera.
