Ricoh has announced plans to roll out the next generation of Ricoh Theta, though they have not announced a shipping data or pricing.

Here are 67 1-click 360º Camera Solutions: many under $500.

Soon to be 68: We need to add the Knox to the list

That's quite some list you got there

However I didn't see the up-and-coming 'Yi 360 VR' camera. Yi's action cameras have come on leaps and bounds in the last two years. There is a rumour that they are replacing GoPro as the partner of choice for future Street View tech.

Good catch.

I just added it to The List.

Not sure what "partner of choice" means since any camera can apply for Google Street View certification for:

1. Google Street View Mobile Ready
2. Google Street View Auto Ready
3. Google Street View VR Ready
4. Google Street View Workflow ready

Are we missing any other 360º 1-click Cameras from The List?

Best,

Dan
