I've backed 3 types of 360 degrees cameras on Kickstarter and Indiegogo. They all have different advantages depending on what I want to achieve for my clients. I believe I might the one of the very few in the world to have those 3 cameras. For sure I'm the only one in Belgium and the first to have used them as at the VR hackathon of last January I could test/use the 360cam (Giroptic is from Northern France so close to me) for a weekend while shipping starts on 24/04/2016. I will do an article on my Linkedin page here once I get the 360cam.
For sure, using the PANONO for a few weeks now, I'm loving the quality of the photos that offer a real quality as doing 100 Megapixels photos (16K*8K pixels in equirect). The best showcase is when I shot Remember-Souvenir of streetart artist Denis Meyers.
