What are 360 cameras? What is the price range of cameras capable of documenting three hundred and sixty degrees? How to choose 3 60 cameras? Can I make 360 cameras at home?

With photography equipment of the future, 360 cameras are the next step right here. The special ability of these cameras is not only limited to documenting all the space around the camera without dead spots, these cameras also understand how the elements in the documented space interact with each other and affect the human experience that is in place of the camera. In fact, these cameras are the best way to document and reproduce the full experience of the photographed area and the photographer. Although the field of 360 photography is quite new, there are already a wide variety of peripherals and VR 360 cameras available in this article.

Can you make 360 cameras at home

Unlike Google cardboard goggles that anyone can prepare at home and enjoy virtual reality, peripheral photography is a little more complicated. In more complicated we actually mean very complicated, in order to produce 360 cameras that function reasonably well, we should create cameras without blind spots. Although this is not a simple task, it is entirely possible. The most common way to make a home 360 camera is to purchase multiple Go Pro or Extreme wide-lens cameras and connect them to a device in such a way that they can record the entire environment without blind areas. The facility can assembled at home using various materials and trial and error or purchased on site. It is important to note that in most cases the 360 camera at home may not be the best or cheapest option for you.

What to do with 360 videos

After purchasing new VR 360 cameras and taking video, the question arises how the videos can edited and displayed to other people. This is the first split point between professional and amateur with 360 cameras, and we highly recommend it to choose the camera that best suits your capabilities and needs. Some cameras come with the option to upload the videos you created directly to Facebook or YouTube without editing them, some even come with simple editing software suitable for editors and photographers of any level. Beyond the basic software that comes with the cameras, you can use professional editing software like adobe premier or simpler editing software. I highly recommend it to watch tutorial videos before editing 360 videos to make sure you can take full advantage of this amazing tool.

Tip: When to use 360 cameras

It's important to understand that VR 360 cameras are still a new technology and not all people have easy access to 360 videos. Of course YouTube and Facebook allow everyone access to these videos well, but the experience is not as complete as with virtual reality glasses. That being said, peripheral photography can be very effective in creating both private and marketing content. With this photo you can:

Produce experiential advertisements.

Produce virtual tours of properties for sale.

Produce videos that encourage tourism or showcase your business.

Record whole moments and capture the energy in them.

Upload videos to special interfaces like google street.


What is the cost of buying VR 360 cameras

The price range of 360 cameras is quite wide and I highly recommend it to use a professional to buy the camera so that the camera will really exceed all your expectations and allow you to use all the options this tool has developed. Especially with such state-of-the-art technology, it is often worth investing a little more so that the money not wasted or slightly less to get equipment that suits your level and needs.

How do I choose between the variety of 360 cameras?

Choosing VR 360 cameras for the average person is no simple task, even the experts do not yet know how the public will choose to consume this new medium. The first thing you need to do is to understand why you need such a camera, whether it is to promote your business, create viral content, or just to capture more accurate and powerful moments in private moments. Once you understand your need, we recommend you consult a professional who can explain to you which camera can best serve you. A person interested in creating private videos should not look at top-notch VR 360 cameras as they will not use their capabilities.
