    I don’t have the Yi360 yet, but compared to the Theta V the Mi sphere is superior for photos, but worse for video

    The VIRB is best for video, but the Mi Sphere is much better for photo.

    When the Garmin first came out it wasn’t that great, but after several software updates it’s the best 360 camera for video

    If you don’t need the waterproof or protective shell on the Fly 4K, the Mi Sphere is the better option

    For livestreaming 4K is enough. Not many people are going to have the internet speed to stream any higher. However if you want to create video for VR headsets then you need higher than 4K.

    I used the 2016 version to upload to street view and it worked perfectly. Haven’t tried the 2017 version yet but I do know the resolution is different. As long as it’s in equirectangular format it should work.

    If you want professional quality 360 photos you need to use a DSLR with a fish eye lens and panoramaic head. Most all in one 360 cameras can’t take great photos unless you spend thousands!

    I’m afraid you can’t stitch videos from the Gear 360 automatically without using the Action Director. I think there are some plugins for Adobe After Effects, but that still required some manual actions. Why don’t you want to use Action Director?

    Glad my tips were useful! I agree that static video is probably best for 360 video, at least until you can stabilise the camera.

    Yes I’d say the SC is worth it. If you use the search bar on the side of this website and search for theta sc, you’ll find a comparison between that and the normal Theta.

    Have you considered the insta360 4k?

    Should meet all of your requirements!

    Hi Peter.

    i don’t recall the actual product name, however the ‘tripod’ is actually a light stand. Just search for studio light stand in amazon and it should come up (as well as some other similar ones).

    I’ve not had any issues with overheating as of yet, although I’ve only used the camera in 10-15 minute bursts at maximum. I’ve heard that more than 30 mins the camera will heat up, but that’s the same with almost all digital cameras and phones cameras too.

    Check out the Samsung Gear 360, which is the best 369 camera out at the moment and still cheaper than the bublcam.

    Ah yes, hadn’t noticed that. I would suggest waiting till Samsung reveals the UK price, these guys could just be taking advantage.
