You Can Now Shoot Your Own Google Street View Photos

Google has certified the Insta360 Pro as the first camera that's "Street View Auto Ready", meaning it's capable of contributing to Google Street View after being mounted to a car.

Insta360 has been working closely with Google to ensure a seamless capture and sharing experience.

“Devices recognized in the ‘Street View ready’ program are perfectly suited for contributing 360-degree content to Google Street View,” writes Insta360, “allowing users to put their own stamp on the global patchwork of immersive street-level views that’s accessible via Google Maps, Google Earth, and the Street View app.”

When mounted to a car the camera can shoot high-quality photos thanks to its stabilization system and optical-flow stitching algorithm. If you're thinking about getting one and contributing to Google's Street View platform, you can purchase one here. The downside? It goes for a hefty $3,500.
