I recently purchased the Kodak Orbit 360 and promptly returned it. Its spatial and temporal resolution, as well as picture stability, were both disappointing to me. I’m considering upgrading my camera, but I’m not sure which one to go with.
With 360 photography and filming, I have a few objectives:
1- In the future, I’d like to be able to recreate an immersive experience? What was it like to be in the midst of a pandemic? How did it feel to be standing in front of the Brandenburg Gate? I’d like to be able to relive that experience afterwards using something like an Oculus.
2- I own a small rental company and would like to be able to provide some excellent 360 tours for potential tenants.
3- (And this is a question) Is there a profit to be made from selling imagery to Google and other companies for street view purposes? Could Streetview photography be used to literally pay for a camera?
