Samsung's Gear 360 Camera Now Purchasable at Physical Locations Like Best Buy and Carrier Stores


Previously available online only, the Gear 360 camera from Samsung can now be found in many physical stores. Still priced at $350, potential buyers can check out the VR content-making machine at Verizon, US Cellular, AT&T, Best Buy, and Sprint. 

For those looking to get into VR content creation, the Gear 360 is not a bad place to start. The device features dual 15-megapixel fisheye lenses, capable of capturing 30MP spherical stills or up to 3840 x 1920 high-res video. While many social networking sites now support 360-degree video, the best way to experience your work is on a Gear VR headset, naturally.

The Gear 360 is also dust and splash resistant, carrying an IP53 rating. However, with that rating, you won’t be doing any underwater shooting.

While I love the concept of the Gear 360, I think it’s still pretty pricey. If the price was to drop to around $199, I think we would see a lot more people tempted to pick one up.

Have you used the Gear 360? What’s your take on it?
