There are at least three companies making parabolic mirrors to capture 360 degree panoramic pictures in one-shot for making virtual tours:

1. 0-360 (www.0-360.com)

2. EGG Photo 360 (www.eggsolution.com)

3. 360 One VR (www.kaidan.com)



Can anyone compare these products please? There are lots of EGG lens being sold on eBay so may be that's an indication that it is not doing too well? Also, #1 & #3 claim they have very few plastic parts.

I want to buy one that is easy to use (for a novice real estate agent) and a bit hardy too.

Please help!

Thanks

I've not used any of those systems, but you should be aware that any good system involving a mirror will use a front surface mirror to avoid ghosts from the reflections from a glass surface. That means they will be easy to scratch. So I'd suggest looking very carefully at how each of the systems deals with that problem.
