Samsung Gear 360

 

This capable little camera plays nicely with the Gear VR

Easy to capture 360 photos and video ; Big on-camera controls ; Perfect for Gear VR

Not as pocketable as LG's camera ; Not waterproof ; Requires newer Samsung phone

Samsung Gear 360 camera preview: Gear VR-friendly virtual reality video recorder

 

Samsung has a device that is capable of playing VR and 360-degree videos, and a headset capable of personalising the experience. All it needed was a camera to shoot the immersive clips and the entire ecosystem would be complete.

Samsung Gear 360 Camera Review

 

360 Degree View. Virtual Reality and 360 degree photography are the hype and Samsung is delivering what the customer wants with a new camera. In this review, we will check to see whether the camera is worth the investment.

relatively high resolution, good workmanship, ActionDirector included, good cameras, MicroSD slot

but limited internal memory, limited video run times, forced shutdown when too hot, scratch-resistant glass, only compatible with Samsung products

The Samsung Gear 360 is definitely one of the best 360 degree cameras available for a reasonable price. However, we have to admit that the technology is not refined yet. The transition between the two camera lenses is too rough and the lighting...

Hands on Samsung Gear 360 review: easy-to-use VR camera is expensive but tempting

 

Shoot your own VR videos with this dual camera eyeball on a stick

Footage looks really good ; VR filming made easy ; Resembles eyeball

400 bucks feels pricey ; Inevitable mild distortion ; No Galaxy phone? Be off then

Samsung Gear 360 (2017)

 

Samsung's second version of the Gear 360 improves on the original, delivering better video and a more refined user experience, but the iOS app needs work.

Improved 4K video capture. Smaller and lighter than previous version. Supports live streams. Compatible with iOS and macOS. Affordable.

Buggy iOS app. Not submersible. 4K footage limited to 24p frame rate. 4K files are huge. Android support limited to Samsung handsets. Live streaming not supported on all platforms. Non-removable battery.

The new Gear 360 is a solid, affordable piece of hardware that is hampered by limited Android hardware support and an iPhone app that crashes when performing very basic functionality. Its video is the best we've seen from a 360-degree camera priced for...

Samsung Gear 360 review

 

Samsung's Gear 360 is the best 360 cam for Galaxy owners.

If you find VR exciting and you happen to own (or are looking to buy) the S7/S7 Edge and Gear VR headset, you may want to consider owning the Gear 360 camera as well. Not only will you have the means to experience immersive 360-degree content provided...

Samsung Gear 360 review (2017): Samsung goes pocket-sized, with its dinky 4K 360-degree camera

 

Samsung's Gear 360 camera re-do gets quite the facelift, as well as some must-have feature upgrades

And you know what makes this whole thing even better? This year’s Samsung Gear 360 launches for just £199, undercutting the old Gear 360 by a sizeable £150. What a saving.

Samsung Gear 360

 

Alongside the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, the Korean company used its latest 'Unpacked' event to show off a couple of other nifty products. There's the slightly updated Gear VR with its touch remote, and a brand-new take on the Gear 360 camera...

Samsung Gear 360 review

 

Samsung's Gear 360 ( $159.99 at Amazon.com ) is one of the best consumer 360-degree cameras you can get at the moment, and yet for most people it's probably not going to be "the one to get."

The well-priced Samsung Gear 360 produces some of the best spherical video you can get from a consumer-grade 360-degree camera at the moment. Easy to use on its own or with its full-featured mobile app. Can be used as a single-lens wide-angle video...

The camera's app currently works on only select Samsung phones. The lenses can be easily scratched and replacements aren't available. Included editing software is Windows-only and editing without it is difficult at best. Transferring clips longer than...

The Samsung Gear 360 is great for simple 360-degree video and photos. You'll just need the right Galaxy phone and a Windows computer to get the most from it, right out of the box.
