NEW Samsung Gear 360 (2017) Reaction and Impressions

Gear 360 2017 Available Here:

The new Samsung Gear 360 (2017) was annouced last week. I’m a bit late for this video, but I thought I’d add my two cents anyway.

I did write a post about the new gear 360, discussing its new features and my initial thoughts here:

This video sets out my reaction to the Samsung Gear 360 (2017 edition). Overall I think the new camera is a good update, but after a week of mulling it over I’m a bit dissapointed in the drop in photo quality, but I think I’ll get over it. I’m mainly using 360 cameras for video so lower photo resolution isn’t a huge deal for ME, but I understand why some people are a bit dissapointed.

Then again, there is plenty to be happy about! I’m excited to try live-streaming and from what I’ve seen the video has much improved.

The design change is a bit of a strange one. On the one hand I like the origitn Gear 360 ball, but I can also see how the new gear 360 design is much more user friendly.

Oce I get my hands on the new Gear 360 (2017) I’ll be testing the living hell out of it and showing you guy what it can do!

In the mean time, you can compare the stats of the new gear 360 vs the old gear 360 on this page:
