Capturing 360 pictures with a smartphone is a great way to start. It provides great quality 360 pictures with no investment needed. It just takes a bit of time to take the picture.

There are plenty of great 360 capture apps, but we recommend using Google Street View App, as it is the one we got the best result for the time spent. It is also very easy to learn. Here is a quick video tutorial.

360 CAMERA

For the best results, and above all, economy of time, we recommend using a 360 camera with a tripod. With a remote or smartphone application, you can take a 360 picture in a few seconds.

There are many 360 cameras. Two of the most used 360 cameras are the Ricoh Theta V and the Insta360 One X. Here is a quick tutorial on how to capture with the Insta360 One X, known for its good image quality and simplicity.
