Samsung Gear 360 camera hands-on: Capture the complete world around you


2016 is the year of the affordable 360 degree camera and one of the highest quality models available comes from Samsung. It's limited to working with a newer Samsung phone, but you will also see good output from the white ball.

Samsung Gear 360 Review


Samsung hasn't just made a bet on virtual reality being the future of entertainment, with the Gear 360 camera it wants VR content creation to be accessible to the masses, too. Hot on the heels of the Gear VR headset comes the perfect camera companion...

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: a camera that satisfies?


The possibility of creating 360-degree photos is, for owners of a virtual reality headset, an exciting thing. With Samsung's Gear 360, this possibility has become a reality. In this Samsung Gear 360 review, we answer the question of whether this camera...

Very good image quality ; Captures the atmosphere of an environment

Parts of images can look awkward ; Unwieldy to transport ; Only compatible with a few Samsung smartphones

For maximum quality of vacation memories, this camera is not so suitable in light of the extremely wide-angle lenses of Gear 360. For many, a smartphone or reflex camera would be better simply because there mightn’t be a suitable 360-degree panorama...

Hands-on: Samsung Gear 360


Samsung wants to give the everyday person the ability to create Virtual Reality content. With VR being the next aggressive market, the Samsung Gear 360 VR camera is thus born. Read to see our trial with this pocket-sized VR shooter.

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

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 camera preview: Gear VR-friendly virtual reality video recorder - Pocket-lint


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

One of the big question marks hanging over virtual reality is about content. It’s all well and good the headsets arriving in their droves this year, but we’re going to need more and more content to watch and play when using them.

Samsung Gear 360 review


Huge potential, but tech troubles means it's a few degrees short of the full circle

Tough build, but still looks slick ; Decent battery life ; Easy pairing and reconnection

Fussy compatibility ; A bit too large for a pocket ; Desktop software is Windows only

Too many problems to recommend it to everyone, but there’s a capable 360° camera in here somewhere
