    • good product bad support

      If you are in market for 360 camera with ease of use and convenience , I could not find a better product so gear 360 from Samsung was the ONLY choice. That does not mean this product is perfect, no idea why but Samsung seams to have dropped the ball on this incredible opportunity to make a good product. a) The photo resolution has dropped from previous model - technology should move forward, when viewed from VR headset the lower resolution is immediately apparent. b) BAD SOFTWARE! - this is the biggest problem. The normal workflow is to download pics and videos into PC --> process & edit --> share to social media. This is where Samsung provides Action Director. However, this software is EXTREMELY buggy and lacks documentation. The fun of posting 3D photos and videos to Facebook is completely lost with this. I have been through multiple forums with people having same issue. No-one has been able to post a video to Facebook using this software. - posting to Youtube works fine from Action Director. - using a Samsung android phone & posting directly from android phone works very well for both youtube and facebook. Final advice - If you can wait, then please do wait for a better product. If you need to buy a 3D camera NOW!, then this is still the best option.

      Bought the 360 cam to compliment my Galaxy S8+. I love how easy it connects to the phone, allowing for more precise control/composition. Quality could be better for both video and stills, but overall I'm satisfied with the stitching. I take this little gadget with me everywhere!
