    Is there any great advantage in using traditional DSLR cameras as apposed to the new 360 cameras Ricoh and Samsung. In particular Just for Google Street view and maps use.

    I have been trying to find reviews with comparisons of quality etc without any luck

    a DSLR or mirrorless body with a good lens will have much better image quality vs theta or other one shot cameras, but comparing a dual camera/lens device that costs under $400 total vs a $1k+ DSLR (or mirrorless) body & $300+ fisheye lens is not exactly a fair or even comparison, small one shot 360 degree spherical cameras are extremely convenient and very useful for some situations, but larger image sensor are of DSLR + higher quality lens will always beat the quality of an all in one device costing 1/10 of DSLR & lens, an all in one 360 cam that competed w DSLR quality would basically cost as much as 2 dslr rigs

    see these examples of DSLR vs all in one 360 cameras
