The Samsung Gear 360 2017 edition is a second generation 360° camera that enables you to broadcast your adventures live via websites that support 360° content as well as capturing 4K video and high-resolution still images.
Made mainly for use on Android on Samsung Galaxy smartphones, this compact and easy to use spherical camera does also provide some limited functionality on iOs devices too. Once you’ve paired your Gear 360 to your Samsung Galaxy smartphone via the free Gear 360 app, you will be able to stream your 360° videos live in real time. Live broadcasting on this camera is in 1920 x 960 HD resolution and requires Nougat OS on Android 7.0.
Featuring dual 8.4MP CMOS sensors and two f/2.2 aperture fisheye lenses, the Gear 360 automatically stitches your captured images together for you to provide a completed spherical image that can be shared with friends, family, and followers on social media websites or enjoyed offline with optional VR goggles. This small camera is ergonomically designed and so easy to carry around and use. It comes complete with a stereo microphone, microSD memory card support, and is both dust and splash proof too. The internal battery on the 2017 version of the Gear 360 will give you up to 130 minutes of use, from a single charge so plenty of time to enjoy capturing and broadcasting the action while you’re out and about.
The 2017 version of the Samsung Gear 360 makes a great choice, especially for Android smartphone users, if you’re looking to create beautiful 360° videos and photos of all your exciting adventures to share with your social media audience.
