Best 360 Camera

Best 360 Camera

As social media sites evolve to support 360 photographs and videos, so too have the number of 360 cameras grown (i.e., cameras that can shoot a 360-degree view of the surrounding). In a nutshell, these cameras feature dual lenses in a single unit and have the ability to be controlled remotely, so that you can easily take photographs and videos of everything around you - literally putting your audience in your world.

 

Nominees:

  • LG 360 Cam
  • Ricoh Theta S
  • Samsung Gear 360

 

And the winner is...

Ricoh Theta S

The Ricoh Theta S stood out easily thanks to its great image quality. It gives you great images in low-light, and handles flaring from bright sources fairly well. In-camera blending also is very well handled, with consistent exposure across images from both front and back cameras. While it is a bit more expensive than the other two nominees, the Theta S makes up for it by including 8GB of internal memory, meaning you literally pick it up and start shooting straightaway.
