11/22/2017: The tool now includes the GoPro Fusion.  Because the Fusion is very popular, I took separate photos and videos to compare the Fusion with 9 other 360 cameras.  For the Fusion comparison videos, check the bottom of the dropdown list.  For the Fusion comparison videos, click on GoPro Fusion, and you’ll see the other cameras I compared it with above the Fusion (click on the up arrow to see more cameras).
