So you want the best 360° camera but want to make sure it’s a wise investment? Well look no further.

Our team has researched and demoed a handful of the newest 360° cameras available at the beginning of 2019 and wanted to share our results with you. So is Insta360 the leader in the market? Is the Vuze 3D worth all the hype?

We answer all those questions and more on this week’s goHere Insight.

Ricoh - Theta V

$379

The Theta V is a sleek piece of equipment that features on the spot playback and a respectable file compression system to make transfer of your files much quicker.

The video capabilities are great and it features a 4-channel microphone for great audio, but we can’t recommend the Theta V for stills. View Product


Pros

  • Easy to transport
  • Great UX
  • Easy to Transfer Files
  • Great Video

Cons

  • 2 Fish-eye Lenses
  • Doesn’t come with much extras
  • Below par images


 

Insta360 ONE X

$399

Capable of capturing 7k stills and 4k video there isn’t much more you can ask for, especially at just under $400.  The Insta360 has to be our favorite cameras overall.

The ONE X isn’t perfect though: the user experience is lacking on the mobile app and there is no option to preview the video before uploading, but as far as quality goes; you can’t ask for a better product for the price. View Product


Pros

  • Amazing quality for the price
  • Includes multiple hardware add ons

Cons

  • 2 Fish-eye Lenses
  • Phone app isn’t amazing


Vuze 3D 360

$599

If you’re ready to go to the next level than the Vuze 3D 360 is what you’re looking for.  Featuring eight cameras instead of the standard two, the Vuze 3D produces a much clearer and seamless transition and a fully integrated VR experience.  

The provided app is good for previewing and remote control but not much else and suffers from crashes and bugs, atleast at the time of our testing.  View Product


Pros

  • 8 Cameras
  • Remote App
  • VR Support

Cons

  • Buggy UX


 

Garmin VIRB 360

$699

The Garmin VIRB 360 is one of the best waterproof cameras currently available and is perfect to use while scuba diving, on a motorcycle, or even skiing.  It is one of the most durable and 360° cameras available and produces very high quality photos.  

The only downside is the lack of an app or real editing software so expect to do all the heavy lifting yourself. View Product


Pros

  • Waterproof up to 10m
  • Clips Easily
  • High Resolution Stitching

Cons

  • 2 Fish-eye Lenses
  • Requires computer to Preview/Edit
  • Expensive for the quality

Panono Pro 360°

$1999

The Panono Pro 360° is essentially a ball of 36 fixed point cameras all evenly spaced to not only give you a 360° view of the Y-axis, but also the X and Z axis’.  Panono is the highest resolution 360 camera for photos available and can suffer from some stitching errors, but overall is a great experience.
