Buying a camera for Street View Capture (April 2020)

Hello, I would like to buy a 360 camera for work.

The objective is to capture all the streets of the city mainly on foot, and then upload them to Google Street View.

I’m looking to spend no more than $1000, and don’t need a professional quality camera.

Having looked at the list of Google Approved Street View Cameras, I assume my choice is between the GoPro Fusion and the Ricoh V.

Or maybe someone has another recommendation? New to Street View photography so any help is great.

Thanks!

Bump. I’ve also been looking at the Ricoh Theta V, Ricoh Theta S, YI 360 VR, Samsung Gear 360 and Insta360 One (X) after discovering they are all supported by the Google Street View app or a manufacturers own app

Which would you buy?

Hi,
based on my experience, Insta360 One X has the best quality in the group of cameras you mentioned.

Hi @HappyMapper!

Take a look at this video, all these are within your budget (some come very close) and would be the best in terms of image quality.

Some of these cameras have some data limitations with regards to how much the camera can store / capture during one shoot.

The objective is to capture all the streets of the city mainly on foot,

How far are you planning on walking?
