Five things to look out for
Lifestyle or action cam? One is designed for easy social sharing, the other for coping with harsh conditions.
Resolution is vital when it’s spread over 360 degrees, which is an area the GoPro and Garmin score well in.
Wi-Fi connections can be flaky, so good on-camera controls and a screen are handy when the phone fails.
Look for cameras with apps that offer versatile mobile editing tools, to allow quick sharing of your 360s online.
How will you mount your camera? Some have tripod sockets, while others use a GoPro mount.
