Luna by luna.camera (2D)

Claimed the first ever spherical 360° camera that has NO blind spots at all. LUNA 360 captures every single angle of the world.

  1. Hi, this is Li Juan from Oxygentec in China. As the main distributor for 360 videostitch, we have built our own camera equipments to cooperate and enjoy warm feedback among chinese fans. At this point, we want to release our items via 360 Camera Online. Pls kindly support.

  2. I was looking for 180 degree small cameras. I wanted to attach them to different locations and join them make a 360-degree video.
    Are there any suggestions where I could get those cameras?

  3. We are looking for serious 360 camera equipment and this list is a great overview of the different options. To make it more usable it would be nice with downloadable samples from each of them to help our review process.
    Is this something you can add?

  4. I do have a platform here to compliment with those.

    Inspect Anytime – A free advertising opportunity

    “Inspect Anytime is a new platform for publishing 360° virtual reality images for the property industry worldwide. We know that stitching images together to create spherical and equitriangular images has been around for some time, however the platform does a great deal more for agents than just show images. This platform is designed for the general public that want to inspect a property and know if it’s worth their while to have a physical inspection.”

    Agents already like the service because they have access to reporting that shows them who has conducted a virtual reality inspection, for how long and their contact details. This is valuable to Real Estate Agents.
    If you can produce professional quality 360° equitriangular images and are a property photographer, feel free to check out the Inspect Anytime platform at http://www.inspectanytime.tv. and see the demo example http://www.i-a.tv/Qot09

  5. The best list ever about 360 camera, i am wonder that how to link the 360 sound with 360 video. if the camera could accept the 3D sound plugin offered by ARKAMYS, we could create our own 360 video via the camera.
