These photographers are throwing their €1,500 German-made cameras.

With 36 lenses and a resolution of 108 megapixels, it is currently the highest-resolving consumer spherical camera.

The Panono can also be used more conventionally, attached to a monopod or other support.
If you like the Panono, FYI there's a discount promo until May 6, 2016.
