Name your current top five 360 cams under $1000

There's a lot to choose from, but I'm seeing a top five list shaping up like this (in no particular order):

Yi 360

Insta360 ONE

Ricoh Theta V

Garmin VIRB 360

...and what...?

Not seeing much love for the Kodak PixPro Orbit360, Nikon KeyMission 360, or GoPro Fusion, but I'd love to be shown otherwise. Thanks in advance.

Re: Name your current top five 360 cams under $1000

I have the Ricoh Theta V and have been generally thrilled with it.

Excellent software (mobile and desktop apps for Windows and Mac). Frequent updates-improvements from Ricoh.

Excellent 4K video quality (in my opinion).

I love the form factor (which helps the excellent stitching) and the spatial audio is a big plus. The price is good.

Downside? No microSD slot. Once you fill it up, you have to offload the thing before recording some more. (I guess one could just buy a second Theta).

The spatial audio really sells the 360 recording and experience for me.

6x Yi 4K action cameras in a 3D printed mount.

6x Z Cam E1 (would go a little outside the $1K budget though).

Z CAM S1 (double your budget, but worth considering)
