All other factors being equal, cameras with larger sensors have higher image quality, with higher bit depths and better low light performance.  Most 360 cameras use small sensors, about the same size as for smartphones or point and shoot cameras, which are typically 1/2.3-inch in size.   Some 360 cameras combine several of these smaller sensors to increase the image quality.  But there are several professional 360 cameras that use larger sensors.  Here is a list of the 360 cameras with the largest sensors.

You can click on the name of each camera to see a more detailed article about that camera.  The table is arranged from the largest sensors to the smallest sensors.  For cameras with the same sensor size, I arranged it from highest number of sensors to the lowest number of sensors.  The table can be resorted and you can also search in the search box:

I’ll keep updating this table as more large sensor cameras are introduced to the market.  This table will now be included in the Ultimate 360 Camera Comparison Tool.  Thanks to Luc Schengen for asking me to make this list!
