Tom's Guide

The 360 camera for (most of) the masses

from Tom's Guide

Of all the "casual" 360-degree cameras I've tested (which at this point is almost all of them), the second-generation Samsung Gear 360 is one of my favorites, but that doesn't mean I don't have some concerns. For one, the fact that only those with Samsung smartphones can use all its features is a real limitation. So is the fact that if you have an Android phone that isn't made by Samsung, you can't use it with the camera at all.

Easy to use and it met expectations as far as quality

from Talk Android

Do you need a 360-degree camera and would the Samsung Gear 360 fit the bill for you? My personal impression is that 360-degree content is still not something the masses are clamoring for and even though I now have a dedicated camera, I’m not real sure what I would use it for. That said, in the past I have done a few photosphere scenes and the Gear 360 is a huge improvement over trying to follow the prompts with a smartphone camera. Plus, a picture takes a mere couple seconds to capture.

It’s cheaper, faster, and easier

from The Verge

The new Gear 360 is a fun toy to play with, but it still faces the same two-headed problem that the old one did. It’s challenging to think up and shoot compelling 360-degree video, just as it’s a bit of a chore to watch them. It reminds me of the early days of GoPro: it’s clear that there’s something to this new form factor and technology, but unless you’re going skydiving or snowboarding, or going on a safari, it can feel intimidating to try to capture and share with a camera like this.
