Canberra: Samsung has launched 360° camera dubbed Samsung Gear 360, in Australia at a price of A$499 (approximately Rs 24,900). The camera has been available in South Korea and Singapore since April. The Gear 360 has a small electronic viewfinder for plotting out your VR footage, plus buttons for powering the cam off and on and quickly switching its recording mode.
The Korean Company has also launched a site where you can upload your videos. The site is called Samsung VR. The Gear 360 also boasts respectable internals besides: a 1,350mAh removable battery that lasts roughly 2 hours on a charge; a MicroSD card slot capable of supporting cards up to 128GB in size, enough for up to 7 hours of video at the highest resolution; a Micro USB charging port, a dust- and water-resistant exterior (up to IP53); and a universal camera mount that attaches to the included tripod.
It pairs to a Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge via Bluetooth for remote control feature, video previewing, rendering, and automatic syncing through a partner Gear 360 app.
