Prior to this camera, I was taking 360 panoramic photos of the outdoors and real estate with a DSLR (canon 6D + rokinon 14mm) and a rotator stage (nodal ninja) then stiching them together in software (PTGUI). Amazing results BUT very expensive, time consuming, and massive learning with tutorials and trial and error. I watched "360" cameras hit the market, but saw that the quality was very poor and limited to short video clips. That is, until the SG360 hit the street. This thing is so EASY and FAST that I can take amazing quality 360 photos and video just like shooting from a point-and-shoot camera. The photos stitch in a matter of seconds while the videos take longer, but process in the background of my computer work. I know take MANY more 360 photos of everything including PEOPLE!
Installing the Cyberlink ActionDirector PC software was a super easy download and install. Drop the photos and video into ActionDirector from the micro sd card, and the software processes them automatically in the background and saves the results in a folder. You can edit the photos and videos in your favorite software; you are not locked into ActionDirector.
Virtual reality? Yes. I was able to view photos and video with the Gear VR after some work (install VR apps, load photos and video to special folders on your phone). It is truly amazing, but also very disorienting. I have perfect vision and never get motion sickness, but cannot stand to be in VR very long. YouTube supports the 360 content. Not many other sites currently do, but hopefully soon. It is so cool to look around somewhere.
Aerial? Yes. I mounted this to my DJI Phantom 3 and have flown successfully ~5 times. Fly at your own risk and keep it safe.
Samsung Gear 360 vs. DSLR + lens + tripod + rotator + software
- Cost: SG360 immensely cheaper by a few thousand dollars!
- Quality: DSLR wins
- Weight: SG360 is only a few hundred grams, perfect for travel. DSLR rig will be ~20 lbs, not good for hiking it around town or outdoors.
- Size: SG360 can fit in any backpack or bag. DSLR requires special packs to lug it around.
- Ease: SG360 takes entire 360 in one photo and processing it couldn't be easier with the free software. DSLR requires many photos, extra software work, so much more time and work.
Samsung Gear 360 vs. VCN V.360 / Kodak Pixpro 360 / 360fly / Ricoh Theta M15 360
- Cost: SG360 is the second most affordable next to the Ricoh Theta M15
- Quality: SG360 dominates the competitors in both photo and video. SG360 and M15 are the only TRUE 360 cameras, but only the SG360 can record longer movies and has much better image quality.
- Weight: SG360 is second to the M15
- Size: SG360 is the second most portable camera next to the M15.
- Ease: SG360 connects flawlessly and quickly to my Galaxy S7. Transferring and stitching the photos on the S7 or my PC is fast and easy. I don't know how it is for the others.
My wishlist: timelapse should output photos not only video, output option for RAW files for improved editing.
Note: This is my honest opinion after using the camera for a few months. I received the Samsung Gear 360 at a discount price from Samsung BUT was fully planning to purchase regardless.
Me? I'm a research engineer with degrees in physics and math. Also a professional photographer in portraits and real estate.
Very susceptible to dust on the lens (my action camera does not suffer from dust collecting on its case like this camera does) -resulting in spots in the capture, this is easy to understand, since the dust is so close to the element and gets highly magnified. It's hard to keep the lens covers clean enough. (I imagine filming in a clean room might just do the trick.)
Something Samsung engineers could control was the lens support structure surrounding the lenses. In a high contrast situation, like being indoors with light coming through a window, the light illuminates the structure supporting the lens - which consists of several concentric rings, and is reflected in the lens cover and is imaged as rings in the worldview (or stripes in panorama). Outdoors without shadows is probably ok.
Stitching is not perfect, but ok.
I enjoy the technology. Still fun for the VR goggles, but not close to a professional quality. Good enough for the hobbyist.
One attached photo shows the dust. The other shows the lens' support with the concentric rings which get imaged by reflecting in the cover. Third picture shows how the rings get imaged.
When it comes to quality, as you can see on the images I’m attaching, it is great. The same applies for video or when using the different view modes it has. Again, based on the price range of the camera, the image quality is amazing.
Also, the fact this camera can be mounted on any standard 1/4” mount tripod, so it can be used on most tripods.
Now, the couple of things that can be an issue with this camera, are the following:
1- If you don’t own a Samsung, you’re pretty much limited to take photos, videos, and time lapses blindly. While the google street app allows you to view through the camera, is not the best option. Of course, once the photos/videos are taken, you can edit them in a pc to achieve the desire look.
2- If you own a Mac, you’ll have to do a lot of searches online to find the Samsung app for Mac in order to edit them. Is not very easy to be found. Your could use third party apps, which is a good thing.
3- Depending on how close to objects the camera is, it might cut some of the visual part, where the to lenses meet, so it is always best to use the camera in big spaces.
4- Depending on where the light is hitting the camera (one lense or the other), might create a weird final 360 photo. The reason why is because each lens do their own white balance/ISO adjustment, so one of the photos (half of the 360) might be a little darker than the other, or with a colder or hotter look based on the white balance. So it is always a good idea to put the camera in a way that the light source hits both lenses at the same time.
