Best for Beginners: Blurfix 360-Degree Action Video Camera
This tiny camera allows you to shoot 360-degree video at 30 frames per second. Use it with a smartphone or a microSD card for standalone use (note that the app only works with iOS devices at this time, however). For the price, it also includes a high-quality microphone and long-lasting battery life, thanks to the included 1350mAH lithium battery. It comes with a tripod, USB cable, and camera pouch. Choose from silver, gold, gray or rose gold.
