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...

Samsung Gear 360 review

 

Samsung's Gear 360 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.

Samsung Gear 360 review: only the first step

 

Here's an obvious statement: The shift from film to digital changed the way we take photos and record videos. What's less obvious about that, or at least easier to forget, is that this shift wasn't...

Great photo quality ; Sharp, small design ; Easy to use

Not durable ; Video quality doesn’t match stills ; Doesn't work with non-Samsung phones ; Long transfer times

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: Spherical eye

 

Close to the size of a billiard ball, and not far off from a grenade, the Samsung Gear 360 is meant to be versatile and explosive like those two objects, only in imaging terms. The South Korean company's 360-degree content debut is a fine effort, so...

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...
