The Best 360 Cameras for Capturing Your World
2D technologies sound pretty much unlike the 21st century. However, 360-degree cameras are certainly not a must for everybody too. But if you fancy the amazing features and possibilities of Virtual Reality friendly videos, getting a 360-degree camera will no doubt be a hand item. Here are the best cameras for capturing every degree of your background if you have a liking for such unrivalled experience.
• Ricoh Theta V
Ricoh’s Theta V is a household name and has grown in popularity over time. Capturing 4K videos at 30 fps and 360 degrees has given it a lot of rave reviews, displacing the much older Theta S model. However, the camera is a bit pricey and comes at around $400. If you don’t have problems with this price tag and want exquisitely professional shots, this may be your best buy of the bunch.
• Garmin Virb 360
A favourite of Tom’s Guide and The Wirecutter, Garmin Virb 360 has an even waterproof up to 30ft and is more of a 360-degree action camera than only a Virtual Reality camera. So sure enough, this is going to raise its market price. The camera is sold for about a $ 1000 but gives great value for money if you are a VR enthusiast.
• 360fly 4K
Much like the Theta V, this camera is waterproof and has a rugged design to match its outstandingly clear 4k Video capturing feature. The camera is however slightly different from the Theta S, as it uses a single lens that may not give a perfect 360-degree video. It gives 240 degrees vertically and only allows for a 360-degree video when used horizontally. It has a relatively friendly user interface with a non-replaceable storage or battery.
• Samsung Gear 360 (2017)
The camera works with newer iPhones and Samsung devices so it is worth trying if you possess either of the above. It gives full 360 images and 4k Video and can also be used for wide-angle images. It may not be as efficient as the Theta V, however, it also sells at a lower price. After some APK sleuthing, the camera can also be used on non-Samsung gadgets. So it’s convenience and ease of use make it a decent choice if you have an android device.
• Insta360 Nano S
Coming at below $250, this camera is a great option for iPhone users. It has a large viewfinder with a 4K resolution and can also be used independently. This minimizes initial concerns over the image quality problems that came with Insta360 Nano. It also has a separate battery, and thus won’t pose any challenge to your phone battery.
• Go Professional
Still want some more professional VR media, you may have to cash in on the Nokia OZO which goes for $45,000, an astronomical price tag, but that’s for an equally astronomical quality with numerous microphones for succinct audio recording. If this still doesn’t fit the bill, then go for the Panono or GoPro Omni, both of which are other matchless professional cameras for your amazing 3D media effects.
