What 360 camera should I choose?
If you’ve checked out the market and have seen the competitive market for 360 cameras, then you might be wondering: What is the best options on the market? I’ve chosen three contenders worth considering. Let’s check out number one:
1. GoPro Max
The GoPro Max replaced the GoPro fusion (one of their first 360 cams) with higher quality capture and 6 microphones. With GoPro Max you can capture immersive footage, The 1080p live streaming means you’re ready to start your vlogging career with great mic performance and a front-facing screen. You can take advantage of the easy to use horizon leveling feature for balanced photos, and capture super stabilized time-lapse videos with the Max TimeWarp feature.
2. Insta360 One X
The stylish Insta One X is one of the best 360 cameras on the market. It can be converted into a 4K action cam for capturing 360 video, a 1-inch sensor camera, or a drone cam. You can create stunning photos and videos that capture everything around you with great color capture and image stabilization. It’s excellent value for money, with great stills resolution and detailed full 360 videos you’re pretty much set to embark on your cameraman career!
3. Ricoh Theta V
Number 3 on our list might just be the best 360-degree camera on the market. The Theta V offers 5,376 x 2,688px image quality, 3,200px ISO, and a 1/25000 shutter speed. This latest Theta model offers 4K video at 30fps for extra quality. It can record spatial audio for top sound quality, and you can connect the device via wi-fi or Bluetooth to the desktop software that lets you edit the footage.
