Samsung Gear 360 camera
21st February 2017
It’s about the bigger picture......
The 360° concept alone is amazing and this camera matched with the Samsung VR helmet, it’s even better!
Mounted on an extendable selfie pole, this camera was quick to snap that shot before anyone could realise what was going on!
It doesn’t take long to work out the best capture settings, as it is pretty much point and shoot. Lighting can be an issue in the dark, or if one lens has a light shining on it, which can cause a halo effect after the automatic stitching between the two.
With the various camera functions this could be all you need with you. I took many other action cameras with me on a recent ski trip, but didn’t use any of them, opting for just the versatile Samsung Gear 360 only.
The battery lasts a good hour or more continuously recording, but with a 128GB memory card in it, you might want to power it up continuously when the weather permits. Being dust and splash proof, you will need to keep the battery/SD card access door closed to retain the IP53 certification, but overall, it’s a robust bit of kit that you should have in your pocket at all times!

Samsung Galaxy Gear 360
21st December 2016
It surprises me what this camera can do. The quality of the images is very good and I even have a A3+ print of a 360 degree view of my hall - hanging in the hall. I hoisted my Gear 360 on a tripod above my garden gazebo and now have a 360 degree of my garden and surrounding properties. It works really well with my Galaxy S7 edge and the buttons/menu are straight forward. Charging (showing red light) is easy and quick (green light when ready). Micro data card and battery easy to get to and it saves power by switching off when not used. It's well made, heavier than it looks and the small black tripod that comes with it is very handy.
Taking 360 images and then scrolling 360 degrees left, right, up, down is a level of photography that is new and I think to become exciting. It's amazing to see a high quality recording with all the action happening all around.
