360 degree tours for understanding

Virtual tours are becoming increasingly popular, especially in the real estate industry. Virtual 360-degree tours allow users to virtually explore spaces as if they were using a VR headset. Today's technology, which dates back to 1787 when Robert Barker painted his famous cylindrical panorama that could be viewed from the inside, makes it possible to create a realistic experience that saves time and money and avoids unnecessary travel. Real estate agents can showcase properties more effectively by creating virtual tours on platforms such as Klapty or 3d Vista, which allow you to upload photos of your premises and then turn them into captivating presentations accessible via websites or mobile devices. In this way, they offer potential buyers an interactive experience without having to be physically on site.

Equipment for the creation of 360-degree tours

Creating a 360-degree tour for real estate requires various pieces of equipment, such as 360-degree cameras, DSLRs, and special panoramicTripods. Examples of some popular models of 360° cameras on the market are Ricoh Theta V, Insta360 One R, GoPro Fusion. However, for high-resolution professional 360° video cameras necessary, which are significantly more expensive.

For successful results when creating this type of experience, it is important to create a shot list before setting your tripod.

Capture stunning panoramic images

There are two ways to take 360° shots: with a panorama tripod or with a 360° camera.

Panoramic tripod

With a panorama tripod, you can use a conventional camera to create 360° shots. To do this, mount the camera on the tripod and align it so that it looks in all directions. You then take a series of individual images, which you then stitch together using software to create a 360° panorama.

360° camera

One 360° camera records 360° images out of the box. All you have to do is set up the camera and start recording. The camera then automatically takes a series of individual images, which it then stitches together to create a 360° panorama.

Tips for good 360° shots

Use a good camera with a high resolution.
Ensure good exposure and sharpness.
Avoid distortion by mounting the camera in the center of the tripod or camera mount.
If you are working with a panorama tripod, take at least 100 individual images for a good result.


Which method is the right one?

The right method depends on your needs and preferences. If you already have a good camera, you can use it with a panorama tripod to create 360° shots. However, if you are looking for a simple solution or want a camera with an integrated 360° mode, you can buy a 360° camera.
