Question

Wide angle camera (similar to GoPro)

by kcizob / April 9, 2018 10:06 AM PDT

Dear all,

please advise, if there's any mobile phone with camera, which wide angle is similar to GoPro photos?

I found LG G6 & V30 with pretty wide angle camera.
But is there more phones with similar specs?

Thank you and enjoy.

Good question.

I rarely see the phone cameras listed with comparisons to GoPro. But first I will give a nod to the Yi camera noted at https://www.techradar.com/news/photography-video-capture/cameras/gopro-generation-the-ultimate-guide-to-action-cameras-1274790

Why? I picked up their car cam and the WiFi feature is a good upgrade there.

Anyhow I don't see a lot of smartphones that are wide angle tricksters.

I already saw this article ... but is there any other brand, phone with wide lens? Maybe Huawei P20 Pro, or Samsung S9+, Pixel 2 or iPhone?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
