In addition to Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge, Samsung also announced Gear 360, an action camera with dual fisheye lenses. With the help of the mini camera and Gear VR, you will get more immersive video playback experience.
The Gear 360 is an advanced, app-enabled 360-degree camera that measures 66.7 x 56.2 x 60mm and weights 153g. As we can see from the images, the action camera shows off an ultra portable and sleek design, and the white exterior with black and silver accents and details make it look like coming from the near future.
As a 360-degree panoramic camera, Gear 360 comes equipped with dual fisheye lenses, which both have 15MP sensors, so we can use it to capture high-resolution (3840 x 1920) 360-degree videos, and it also supports 30MP still images. Moreover, we can also capture 180-degree wide angle photos and videos with only using one side of the camera lens, and its f/2.0 aperture ensures it delivers clear and clean images even in low light conditions.
The Gear 360 is designed to capture all indoor and outdoor activities with its lightweight, compact, spherical body. The mini camera also comes with a steady mini tripod and it supports a wider selection of accessories and mounts, so we can more flexibly use it to capture various amazing photos and videos.
Moreover, built-in Bluetooth 4.1 allows it to wirelessly transmit photos or videos to a connected smartphone for sharing with others, and other features also include 0.5″ PMOLE display, IP53 certified dust and water-resistant housing, a microSD card slot supporting up to 128GB, and 1350mAh rechargeable battery. In addition, using Samsung VR Gear, you can get a real 360 viewing experience when reviewing your own videos.
