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.
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.
Specs of new Gear 360
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.
