Samsung Gear 360 (2017) review

 

This second-gen 360-degree camera is a very small step forward

Fun, capable software ; Good price ; Works with iOS ; Slick, ergonomic design

Disappointing video quality ; Slight downgrade in specs over 2016 model ; Limited Android compatibility

The 2017 edition of Samsung’s Gear 360 is easy and fun to use, especially if you haven’t dipped into 360-degree video before. At $229, it’s definitely one of the best values on the market, too. But be warned, the video quality can be iffy, and opting...

Samsung Gear 360 review: excellent 360-degree camera… if you have a Samsung phone

 

Little ball of fun is perfect if you've bought into the Samsung VR ecosystem

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

Pricey ; Inevitable mild distortion ; No Galaxy phone? Be off then

Samsung Gear 360 (2017) review

 

Is this the best way to get a properly rounded view of the world?

Fits in your pocket ; Decent footage and photos ; Easy to use

Limited Android support ; 4K footage doesn’t look 4K ; No built-in tripod

A step forward for 360-degree cameras, but still a step below perfection

Unusable without a compatible phone

 

Bought this as I'd hoped it was compatible with my Samsung Galaxy A3 2017. Alas it is not.... very odd. Anyway, the camera allegedly works as a standalone piece of kit. Yep it kinda does but there's no way to set the date time... So all my pics and...

Samsunggear 360 camera

 

I've only just bought this camera having used the older model for some time, these are great cameras for 360 degree photography particularly if you take them out and about with you . This latest model (2017 version) will also work with iOS phones.

I brought this camera as a present for my husband and I am very happy that I did as he is very pleased with the pictures and videos he can make with it.

easy to use

 

I bought this about a month ago and had some fun with it, the idea was to link in with movies I made on the GoPro 6 but this is so far a bit of a pain. Be careful about how you hold it so you don't get giant thumb on playback, worth using a small...
