      The answer to the question above is (much like the answer to the light
      bulb joke), "As many as you choose for the job (joke) at hand."

      Today, you can create 360-degree panoramas with only one shot, or with
      many thousands (or any number in between). The choices come down to
      what you're willing to accept (or settle for), and what your
      equipment, budget, and time constraints are.

      In photography, everything is a tradeoff.

      Higher ISOs mean more noise. Smaller apertures mean greater depth of
      field, but require more light or longer exposures. Higher speed and
      higher precision usually means more money. Greater resolution usually
      involves more shots, greater equipment expense, more post production,
      etc. The list goes on and on.

      Our job as photographers is to choose the best tools for the job at
      hand, or to best utilize the tools we have available for that job.

      There is no single correct answer, nor one best solution. That's why
      photography -- and certainly VR photography -- is considered a
      creative endeavor. Yes, it requires a certain amount of technical
      knowledge and skill, as well, but the bottom line is how creative one
      needs to be to achieve the desired results within the limitations of
      the job-at-hand.

      And that's part of what makes it so fun...

      P.S. How many photographers does it take to screw in a light bulb?

      Answer: Ten. One to do the job, three to say they could have done it
      better, and six to say they could have done it better AND cheaper.
      Answer #2: Only two, but they have to be r-e-a-l-l-y small in order
      to both fit in there.
