ThingLink Launches a Revolutionary Solution for Capturing 360 Images
In light of the discontinuation of the Google Street View Camera app, ThingLink has answered the call for a mobile-friendly alternative with a new and groundbreaking addition to its suite of tools. Our game-changing new conversion solution allows you to effortlessly create virtual tours using 360-degree photosphere images, using nothing but your mobile phone.
No need for a specialist 360 camera or equipment
Until now, capturing 360 degree images was only possible with a 360 camera such as the Ricoh Theta z1 or Insta360, plus a monopod or tripod. Now, panoramic photos taken on an iphone or any android mobile device can easily be converted for use in a virtual tour.
Explore the possibilities with this ThingLink Guided Tour
Get inspired with a walk through of this guided tour of a co-working space in Helsinki. Immerse yourself in the impressive converted 360 photosphere, originally captured with an iPhone 12 Pro Max on the panorama setting and converted into a 360 degree photo in ThingLink.
