So having used the LG 360 Cam and being slightly disappointed by the photo and video quality I had no intention of even looking at the Samsung Gear 360.
But then I started to see some footage and read some early reviews and noticed that the video footage looked a lot better than that I took from the LG 360 cam.
Primarily the Samsung Gear 360 has higher quality optics and better software stitching – well that is the claims I have seen so far.
I will say because the LG 360 cam’s profile is more rectangular / flat in shape it’s far easier to stick in your pocket.
Anyway back to the Samsung Gear 360. First impressions of the hardware and test photos and videos have been pleasing. I will be sharing some of these soon.
I mentioned there was a lanyard strap in the video below. I have since discovered that this connects to the black tripod. This becomes apparent when you watch the video as you will see the lanyard attachment holes .
For now enjoy my unboxing video and overview.
