Does recommend any specific camera?

We have always been big fans of the Ricoh Theta V for its quality, price tag, and ease of use. If you are a power user or a photographer, you might want to look at the Ricoh Z1. 

Do I need a floor plan?

No, but we highly recommend you use one as it is best practice and statistically proven to sell homes faster for more money regardless. It also takes five minutes to draw one and costs $30 to be re-drawn overnight.
