Been seeing some OK photos from the Gopro Fusion 360-degree camera.


Seen other cameras before that did not impress me, but the Gopro is starting to look like a decent quality 360-degree camera.


Anyone have any experience with this camera, or others they would recommend I check out?

Why not look at the following?


Has some good reviews and seems to be much cheaper than the GoPro Fusion.

I did some more research, and I have to admit I don't think there are any stellar 360 cameras out there yet.


This review looks fairly comprehensive: Pros and Cons of EVERY 360 Camera


From that review the Xiaomi seems to lack in video quality, and the review says the desktop app isn't good.


The GoPro camera I have been eyeing has these problems, according to the review:


- Requires Two Micro SD Cards
- Users Have Experienced Bugs in the Desktop Software
- Long Rendering Times
- 360 Photos Limited to 18mp


I guess I should just wait some more. Next generation GoPro will likely be better in many aspects. Don't think rendering time is a problem with the camera as such. But with software and hardware of the computer you use to render.
