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.

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 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

Samsung Gear 360 review: A great 360-degree camera, but it only plays nicely with Galaxy phones

 

The Samsung Gear 360 is a super bit of kit, but small niggles irk considering the price

Let’s get one thing clear before I sum up: the Samsung Gear 360 isn’t aimed at people like me. It’s aimed at go-getters, adventure seekers, and other exciting types who actually do things worth documenting. Nonetheless, it’s hard not to be pretty...
