Point, shoot, share has become the new modus operandi in film-making as of late. In an age where content is not only uploaded onto a platform within seconds, but also streamed live, the way we view video has allowed it to become the most circulated media around the world. Taking the need for constant streams of high res visuals into account, Samsung have revamped their Gear 360 to include high-tech new features built for broadcasting. “As consumers turn more to video to share their experiences, we want to deliver accessible and innovative products to make digital content easier to create, share and stream,” said Younghee Lee, Executive Vice President of Global Marketing and Wearable Business, Mobile Communications at Samsung Electronics.

A View To Remember 

Offering a 360 degree recording of your surroundings, the Gear gives you the chance to capture multi-dimensional content. Taking in the crowds, sky and horizon, the best-in-class camera captures sharp detail thanks to dual 8.4-megapixel fisheye lenses that support 15-megapixel images and, for the first time, immersive 4K videos. Making memorable moments even in the most low-light conditions, the features are ideal for those who love to make immersive, high-quality videos on-the-go. 

Spoiled For Choice  

Giving you multiple modes to shoot and share with, the camera also comes with a variety of editing tools, allowing you quickly and efficiently edit raw footage and put a personal touch on the final product. New software also means that 360-degree shots can be eventually or instantly shared standard photo format, giving you equal parts versatility and variety when it comes to filming and sharing your shots.  

Slick Style

Taking influences from an astronaut helmet once again, the Gear 360’s new design updates maintain the familiar spherical, black and white exterior but with a more compact, lightweight shell, making it easier than ever to maneuver and carry. Built with integrated tripod to give you a comfy, one-handed grip, at 130 grams it can be easily held for hours without an uncomfortable strain. Need more gadgets? Third-party accessories and mounts are also available so you can customize the camera to suit your custom filming style.
