Things you gotta to know about the New Gear 360 2017


New Gear 360 2017 is one of the best consumer models made by Samsung. Its competition was by no means great and the electronics giant had a fair amount of room for improvement -- almost all of which it tackles with the 2017 version, starting with the design.


Gone is the giant eyeball-looking body and in its place is a much smaller camera. The dual fish-eye lenses are still here, but they're considerably smaller and each has a 8.4-megapixel sensor behind them (the same sensors used in the Galaxy S8). Now the thing can actually comfortably fit in a pants pocket.

Using it is better, too, since Samsung tucked the battery into a handle built as part of the camera body. You lose the ability to swap batteries, but the built-in one will last up to two hours shooting in 2K resolution and charges via its USB-C port. Content is recorded to a microSD card.

Your finger naturally falls on top of the record button on front, just above a small status screen. There's also a standard tripod mount in the base or it can stand on its own. Samsung will include a little stabilizer ring to help keep it upright, too. And it's still dust and water resistant.


Samsung just revealed the price of its new 360-degree handheld camera: $229, more than $100 less than the price of last year's Gear 360 model.

Supporting Phones:

For the new Gear 360 2017, Samsung will broaden support, adding the S8 and S8 Plus, the 2017 A5 and A7 and, more importantly, support for the iPhone 7/7 Plus6S6S Plus and SE. All other Android devices appear to be unsupported, though. Samsung will also offer MacOS desktop software for viewing and editing alongside enhanced Windows software. Compared with the older version Gear 360, which supported for use with Samsung Galaxy S6/S7S6/S7 EdgeS6 Edge+ and Note 5 phones.

Recording resolution:

Samsung bumped up the top recording resolution to 4,096x2,048 pixels at 24fps as opposed to the original's not-quite-4K 3,840x1,920 pixels. You'll also be able to use the camera to live stream in full HD (1,920x1,080 pixels) to Facebook, YouTube and Samsung VR.

One thing Samsung couldn't answer was whether it would make replacement lens covers available to consumers. Although the lens covers on the original were fairly easy to remove if they got scratched, Samsung never made replacements available and scratches aren't covered under warranty. And with two large lenses the chances of getting a scratch are pretty good.


Over all, it's a good product that can record your lives in 360-degree and share with your friends on social apps like facebook, Twitter, etc.
