- The resolution of the photos taken with the Gear 360 is 30MP, while the resolution of the Theta S is 14MP. The difference is not noticeable when displaying the pictures on a phone, but it becomes tangible when the photos are viewed in virtual reality or on a laptop.
- The Gear 360 can record quasi-4k (3840x1920) videos, while the Theta S shoots full-HD videos (1080p). If you think that 1080p is enough, think again: when you are watching a 360 photo/video, you will be focusing on a small portion of the scene, which means that the effective resolution of what it's displayed is much lower. The videos taken with the Theta S look very low-res: they are comparable to a 2D 480p video. The videos shot with the Gear 360 are much better, but they won't look as good as a high resolution 2D video.
- The Gear 360 (as of June 2016), is not available in the US yet, which means that this item will ship from South Korea. Despite this, I received the item in 2 days (without selecting expedite shipping), which is impressive. Since it's the Korean version, there is no warranty, and the user manual will be in Korean. A link to an online English manual is included.
- The Gear 360 is, currently, overpriced ($459). When launched on the US market, it will probably cost around $350, which is in line with the Theta S. I would recommend to wait until the US version is out unless, like in my case, you need it for a special event.
- The Theta S app is much more polished and is compatible with most devices. The Gear 360 app is currently compatible just with select Samsung phones (Galaxy S7 edge, Galaxy S7, Galaxy Note5, Galaxy S6 edge+, Galaxy S6 edge, and Galaxy S6).
- The photos shot with the Theta S are stitched by the camera itself, while the ones shot with the Gear 360, can be stitched on the phone, or using a software developed by Samsung (Windows only, unfortunately). The Theta S does a better job at stitching (almost no artifacts), while I have noticed anomalies in the final images produced by the Gear 360 (mostly when objects are too close to the camera, because the two lenses are further apart with respect to the Theta S, and therefore more difficult to merge). The advantage of the Gear 360 is that Samsung will be able to improve the stitching algorithm by just updating the app, no need to update the firmware of the camera. Unfortunately, you will be able to stitch the quasi-4k videos produced by the Gear 360 just using the PC software.
- The Samsung camera is more 'independent', in the sense that it has its own lcd screen, which will allow you to shoot photos and videos without using your phone. It doesn't include a (required) micro SD card.
- With both cameras I was able to upload photos and videos to Facebook without any issues.
- Both cameras are easy to pair with your phone (the Theta S uses Wi-Fi, while the Gear 360 uses Bluetooth).
- The mini tripod provided with the Samsung Gear 360 is incredibly sturdy.
Bottom line: the Gear 360 camera shoots better photos and videos. It's currently overpriced, so you might want to wait until the US version is available. IMHO, buying a 360 camera now that Facebook supports 360 photos and videos, and you can use a Samsung Gear VR headset to relive your memories, makes perfect sense.
Only started to play with this today, so I'll update when I have some real information. FIRST problem is the software that you need to
download needs a key to activate in order to use. The "product key" was inside the Samsung camera box on a LITTLE LITTLE LITTLE 'return
label' printed blurred in a font I think may be 5 points... (Picture attached). I can not read some of these letters/numbers and can only
guess what they are... I started using a magnifying glass and then scanned and enlarged, but still have no idea about a lot of those dots.
Me and my wife spent over an hour trying various combinations of what these letters/numbers MIGHT be, with "Invalid Key" error when we try
to move forward.
If Samsung is actually shipping these to the masses with this TINY product key that is unreadable, they are in for a rough time with
A default in image combination at the lower part (not good superposed)
I think the spherical photo shall be 45MP instead of 30MP. Object away than 10m appear as pixels.
I have Samsung G. S6 edge, so downloading images from internet give much more higher quality, it seems like 80MP. so this camera still need enhancement.
Leaving this aside, it changes the way your memories are visualized, no more 2-d photos, you can 'be there' like expectating that moment with everyone on their position.
Here's a teaser clip of the unboxing from me: [...]
