"Sphericam 2 is a spherical, 360º camera that allows you to capture absolutely everything around you in high resolution without any blind spots. You can watch the resulting videos on a VR Headset (like Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR or Google Cardboard) or on your iPad, tablet, PC or mobile phone."

Amazing specs for such a small 360º camera.

See Kickstarter page here. (about two years behind promise date)

I think Sphericam used to be the coolest 360 camera to buy 2 years ago, but because they kept delaying the shipping date, I wouldn't consider them as serious contenders.

I could imagine that they slipped the date on Sphericam 2 to meet the Google Street View Auto Ready certification.

Given that the NCTech iSTAR Pulsar announced $2,000 and Insta360 Pro announced $3,499, it will be interesting to see what the price of Sphericam 2 is when released.

While all three Cameras will be "Google Street View Auto-Ready" ... I could imagine that the secondary use case will be important about "which camera is right for me."



P.S. About to begin social plans. I may be slow to reply, if you comment back ....

@dansmigrod I saw the Insta360 Pro at CES and I was quite impressed. It feels to me a good overall choice. Granted that any tech is outdated from the minute you purchase it, it's a matter of making the most out of it as soon as possible. Thanks for the reports!
