  • Description+-

    You experience the world in 360°. Shouldn't your photos and videos reflect that? Meet the Samsung Gear 360. Capture dynamic, high-resolution memories in true 360°, and relive those memories through your compatible Galaxy smartphone* and immersive Samsung Gear VR* headset (both sold separately). Front and rear lenses each capture a full 180°, creating a seamless and full 360° image. Couple with your compatible Galaxy smartphone* via Wi-Fi Direct to use the phone's screen as a remote viewfinder, to easily trim your shots, and to share your images with friends and family. Even publish your photo spheres or 360° videos to Facebook 360, YouTube or Samsung VR.

    Create true 360° videos and stills
    The Gear 360 is different than some dual-lens cameras that say they capture full 360-degree video, but in reality only shoot cylindrical or half-dome footage. Gear 360 shoots a full sphere of content. 360-degree video is captured in near 4K resolution‡, and 360° stills are captured in 30 MP. Also, because light varies by location and time of day, Gear 360 is equipped with bright F.2 lenses, which means you'll capture dazzling images even in low-light conditions. Record directly from the Gear 360 or remotely, using your Galaxy smartphone.*

    Shoot, stitch and edit, share
    Sharing is easy with your compatible Galaxy smartphone* or your PC. Just shoot in live view mode, use your compatible smart device* to simply stitch the 360-degree footage with just a click, trim it to your taste and share it online.

    Seamlessly connect to your Galaxy smartphone*
    Connect your Galaxy smartphone* via Bluetooth—then use the Gear 360 Manager App and Wi-Fi Direct to transform the phone's screen into a convenient remote viewfinder. Once synced, also upload and share your creations directly on sites such as YouTube, Facebook 360 or Samsung VR.§ Don't own a Galaxy smartphone? No problem. Use the Gear 360 ActionDirector PC software¹ for editing, stitching and sharing.

    Dual- and single-lens modes
    For the times you may not want a full 360° image, simply use just one lens to create high-resolution, 180° wide-angle videos and stills. Whether you decide to take a 360-degree or a 180-degree video or photo, you'll easily capture and share truly brilliant, vividly clear, high-resolution memories.

    Made for outdoor adventures, too
    Not only is this compact and durable camera great for capturing indoor events, Gear 360 is also an essential outdoor camera. A little dirt kicked up from your trail bike or a splash or two from the lake won't bother Gear 360†. Tempered glass lenses further help protect this handy unit. Take Gear 360 on vacation, to sporting events, concerts, camping—places and occasions that will be so much more memorable in 360°.

    Use Gear VR* for a real 360-degree experience
    Really get into your 360-degree creations with your Gear VR* virtual reality headset (sold separately). The lightweight design and intuitive touchpad of the Gear VR drop you right into the action you've created with your Gear 360. Gear VR sports an ergonomic design with flexible padding. Plus, it fits over most eyeglasses.

    Samsung Gear 360 (2016) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 14.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from You're gonna love it! Anyone can take a picture. But not everyone can playback an experience. This camera is NICE! I've shot several events with this camera. My friends can put on my Gear VR headset and feel like they're standing in the middle of the event. I have shot 2 classic car shows and a classic boat show. Both sides of the field can be visualized as if you are there and spinning in a circle. It's an EASY TO USE camera that has the ability to film and playback in several resolutions. When used with a Samsung S7 and Gear VR Headset you get the full experience of a fast emerging technology. You can take conventional "forward facing" photos or "rear facing" photos OR BOTH front and rear together and your S7 will "stitch" them together. You can leave them on the camera and view from your S7 or download them to your phone to view without having to use the camera, with or without the Gear VR Headset. I recommend having a 360 swivel chair to sit in and enjoy the show! Buy one and change the way you look at the world.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thsi is the best 360 Camera today This is by far the best 360 camera on the market today. Before buying this camera, I did some research on about 5 different 360 cameras. The specs on this Gear 360 beat everything else out there. When I got the box the first thing I noticed was how neatly everything was packaged. Samsung took the time to make sure everything was well protected. I really like that you have dual cameras that you can use at the same time or just use one. The tripod is great and works perfectly as a handle to hold the camera up. I especially liked that I could control the camera remotely with the Gear 360 app on my cell phone. Samsung makes the best products out there.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A nice little 360 camera As a professional VR director, I've loved having the Samsung to start working with. Compared to larger rigs, the Gear is a lot easier to do run and gun work and the ability to quickly review footage on the phone and headset is a huge advantage to quickly see camera positioning. Resolution is good at ~4k and the phone controls and interface are fairly intuitive. It would be nice if their Action Director software ran on Mac hardware but I end up using another high end stitching software anyway so this is not a deal breaker. Overall a great 360 camera.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little camera. This is my first 360 camera, It is a very sleek camera and easy to use. Using a mono pod to maximize the viewing angles works well while using a S7 as the controller. I have been using the camera for couple of weeks as a Samsung Insider #‎Gear360‬ ‪#‎insidersgear360‬ This camera is water and dust-proof, included mini-tripod is extremely interesting . It works and pairs perfectly with my Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. I have uploaded videos to Facebook without any problems Pro: Small & easy to use. Able to capture a moment from all directions instead of just one. Con: Most viewing programs on the computer are not set up to view 360 images. Will take time, but eventually they will. Just don't like waiting.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use I haven't had a great deal of trails time with my Gear 360 yet. What I have found by playing with the camera at home is Samsung has done their homework. Finding and downloading the Gear 360 software to my Galaxy S7 Edge was a snap. Linking the phone to the camera took mere moments. No searching for the right page or holding down of several buttons. And controlling the camera, reviewing photos/videos from my phone worked perfectly. I'm very excite to take it into the wilderness.
