Samsung has announced a new Samsung Gear 360, a 4K resolution-capable 360-degree camera enabling a user to shoot video and photos in 360 degrees.
What’s exciting is that the Gear 360 also offers greater compatibility with iOS devices including the iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus and iPhone SE, as well as Windows and Mac computers.
Equipped with 8.4-megapixel image sensors and Bright Lens F2.2 on both dual fisheye lenses, the Gear 360 can create high-resolution images.
It leverages Samsung’s innovative technologies and services to seamlessly share, view and edit content.
Whether creating a 360-degree video or still images, users can access various viewing modes, editing tools and photo effects and filters to create customised content. Users can also effortlessly convert 360 videos into standard formats for easy-to-share content.
The Gear 360 introduces real-time content sharing. When the Gear 360 is synchronized with a compatible smartphone or computer, the new device enables users to share their best experiences with high-quality live broadcasting or direct uploading to platforms such as Facebook, YouTube, or Samsung VR.
“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.
“The updated Gear 360 will continue to expand the horizons of what consumers can experience and share.”
