There are dozens of off-the-shelf, consumer grade 360 cameras on the market that are technically compatible with Cupix software. However, a few of them perform better with our software than others according to our experiments. Our top choices in no order of preference are the Ricoh Theta, the Insta360, the Mi Sphere 360, the Yi 360 cameras, and the GoPro Fusion at the time of writing.
Two of the most critical manufacturer-specific issues during software processing is the amount of distortion introduced over the course of stitching images from multi-lens cameras, followed by the noise level of images. It is important to follow the guidelines for taking 360 photos to minimize the impact of distortion and noise on the final generated 3D tour.
Stitching Software Download Links
Use the following links to download stitching software compatible with your camera of choice. Stitching software can be used with 360 images as well as DSLR photos to generate images ready for processing. If you use a DSLR camera with a wide-angle lens and a panoramic tripod head, the Cupix app is able to correctly process these photos as long as they are equirectangular, which means that the width to height aspect ratio is exactly 2:1.
Note:If you use a DSLR camera with a wide-angle lens and a panoramic tripod head, that would be perfectly fine for us to process correctly as long as photos are equirectangular which means the width to height aspect ratio is exactly 2:1.
