Relive the view in every direction with a 360 camera

What do 360 cameras do?

Unlike cameras that capture a scene facing the lens, 360 cameras are spherical, with lenses that capture a 360-degree field of view. That means you not only shoot or record whatever is in front of you, but also everything behind, above and below you as well.

From a technical point of view, these cameras are equipped with onboard software that takes two 180-degree images and stitches them together in real-time to create the spherical viewpoint. This applies to both still photos and video, and they can work by manually pressing the shutter button or controlling them remotely from a paired phone to give you time to step in—or out—of the shot.

In the past, this kind of imaging would’ve required expensive and expansive gear to achieve, but now, a simple handheld camera is enough to capture everything around you. Not that every image has to be in 360-degrees. The cameras are designed to also shoot in 180-degrees, for long panoramic images that focus on what’s in front, rather than every other angle.

While there are similarities to virtual reality (VR), the big difference between a 360 camera and a VR one is actual reality. VR offers simulated content, whereas a 360 camera captures real-life scenes happening around you. Despite that, you can view 360 content with VR headsets to feel like being in an actual place.

What are 360 cameras used for?

A 360 camera is capable in most situations, and that includes areas as varied as real estate, travel and adventure activities. Like other action cameras, most 360 cameras are built to work in active circumstances, so whether it’s skiing down a mountain or ziplining across a valley, they should capture the entire scene.

In other instances, like showcasing a home or condominium, a 360 camera lets realtors cover far more ground in fewer images. It can help prospective homeowners or renters visualize the space and see how everything connects. Architecture can also feel more majestic when viewed within so many angles.

Concert-goers can show the true mood of the crowd amid the scope of a performance. With time lapse modes, a sunrise or sunset can appear mesmerizing from all sides when viewed that way. The cameras can also offer different perspectives to travellers looking to relive a memorable experience in a foreign land.

What quality are 360 camera photos and video?

Due to their size, 360 cameras are often equipped with smaller image sensors when compared to larger DSLR cameras but are still capable of recording video in 4K resolution. The greater number of pixels and lack of dynamic range may require you use the supporting mobile app to edit and adjust the images afterward.

The greater the light, the better the result. And though some 360 cameras are rugged enough to use underwater, good natural light helps illuminate everything when submerged. Quality isn’t standard for all 360 cameras, as they don’t all come with the same specs. There may be a trade-off between size and convenience, so you can decide based on what you prioritize.

As with standard images and video, 360 content is also available to edit with compatible desktop software and mobile apps. It is also possible to share it on social media and YouTube, among other platforms, allowing viewers to scroll anywhere or look around wearing a VR headset to get every viewpoint in one sitting.
