    I have been working for a Photography services company for quite some time now. And for 360-degree photography as well as videography, I use Insta360 One X. It gives me a resolution of 5.7K for videos and an 18Mp photo quality as well. It might be expensive for some, but it’s effective for the long-term.

    I did start with the Iris from NCtech also did try the Ricoh. But i did get back to a normal camera (Canon Eos R) with 8-15 mm. Still the best pictures.

    I started out with a Theta V thinking it would be enough to get a few clients and then I would up my game. I have few examples on my website from that camera here. I got a few paying clients but I just couldn’t charge any real money because the quality just isn’t there!!

    The best camera is a DSLR and nothing’s going to touch that for a while, however the workflow takes a bit longer than a point and shoot. If you are looking for the best point and shoot 360° camera Ricoh Theta Z1 is the nicest from a tried and true, reputable company. However the xPhase and Kandao Qoocam are looking like really sweet contenders in the market.

    I like the VuzeXR. It gives you both an excellent 360 camera and VR180 3D camera in one. It shoots dng raw still files and is very well made. Here is a link for a very good deal on it. https://vuze.camera/104.html

    I sometimes use the insta360 one X and for the price it’s probably as good as you’ll get. If you use this definitely shoot raw and process with insta360 Studio – its HDR mode is truly dreadful. More usually I use a Gigapan Epic Pro pano head with a Canon EOS M6 and its stock lens at 18mm, yielding 48 images per spherical pano. I bracket by 3 stops either way, so in fact it’s 144 images. I use Autopano Giga (now discontinued, so I’ll be needing to replace this sometime) to stitch the images, clean up using Photoshop – its 3D ability is really handy – and put it together with Pano2vr. After that there’s the web stuff if you’re going for anything beyond Streetview. I’ve also tried with a full frame 5D 3 DSLR and it’s slightly better, but far too heavy.
