Video: 4 360º Cameras | Video Courtesy of LIFE in 360 Ben Claremont

Hi All,

Excellent side-by-side comparison by Ben Claremont with LIFE in 360.

I would add these considerations (not covered in the video)

✓ Google Street View certified
✓ Interval 360ºs (essential for CUPIX)
✓ Time-lapse Video (essential for CUPIX)
✓ API (Ricoh Theta V)
✓ APP ecosystem (Ricoh Theta V)

Plus, unless you have a project that will pay for your camera today, I would wait until the 2018 Google Street View Summit to see if there are new camera announcements and/or which cameras meet Google's Street View Ready certification.

Amazon (As of 26 April 2018)

Ricoh Theta V ($397)
Xiaomi Mi Sphere ($300)
GoPro Fusion ($700)
Insta360 One ($300)



P.S. It's essential that every Matterport Pro have an under $500 360º Camera. If you publishing from Matterport to Google Street View, you need 360ºs to connect the business to the Street. While you could do it with Matterport 360º Views, it's the wrong tool except if you just need a few 360ºs.

The following are screen grabs from the LIFE in 360 Video (above).
