    I have a rule that I’m the only person that handles my equipment. I ignored that rule and it cost me a camera. I was working at a construction site and had attached my Nikon 360 to a large beam that was being lifted over the site. Once it was in place one of the workers said he’d retrieve my camera for he. The camera didn’t survive the 25 foot fall onto the concrete floor.

    I’ve managed to find a KM 360 to replace it but I’m wondering if there is something better out there for shooting 360 video.

    Does anyone have opinions on this.

    Thanks for your help

    best one shot camera for still panos in 2019 is Ricoh Theta Z1, 1″ sensor provides much greater detail and dynamic range vs other one shot 360 cameras 1/2.3″ sensor
    https://theta360.com/en/about/theta/z1.html

    Gopro Fusion is also a very good 360 cam ww excellent video quality and on sale now for about $300

    Kandao Qooocam is another inexpensive 360 cam w excellent still and video quality, also some nice stereo modes for 180° VR and stereo “3D” photos, and other interesting and unique features from kandao

    any of these will provide better still and video vs keymission
