Did you know there is a lens that there is a 360 degree lens? Typically a fish eye lens is used in conjunction with tripod, gimbal and software to produce a 360 photosphere, however a 360 lens does not require any accessories, hence can shoot 360.

No more stitching or errors, and on top of that, it is compatible with Red cameras as well.
