Am interested in learning to make my own hdri or equirectangular images for my own scenes locally. Can anyone recommend a decent camera and are there software programs designed for this?

Thanks LoboTommy. The revies of the Ricoh seem a bit mixed but I will check it out more. And the website link for the instructions on making an hdri environmental maps is just what I was looking for. Thank you very much.

I went ahead and bought the new Gopro Fusion. I was a bit hesitant at first due to most of the negatives being about how bad the software was. Those comments were usually posted back in December and early January. I was pleasantly surprised that I had absolutely no problem with the software issues brought up in those reviews. It is a really amazing little camera.
