Samsung posts official tutorial videos for the new Gear 360


Last updated: June 8th, 2017 at 23:56 UTC+01:00

Samsung confirmed pricing and availability for the new Gear 360 camera late last month. It was released in the United States on May 25. Customers can place an order via Samsung’s website, and BestBuy.

The company has now posted official tutorial videos for the new Gear 360 on YouTube. The videos will walk you through the unboxing and device setup stage, teach you how to broadcast video live from the 360-degree camera and how to view and shoot footage using the companion app on your smartphone.

Samsung launched the new Gear 360 camera with the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ back in March. The camera features two 8.4-megapixel image sensors with Bright Lens F/2.2 on both dual fisheye lenses. It offers support for recording video in true 4K resolution.

The camera supports multiple photo effects and viewing modes, editing tools, filters and more so that users can add their personal touch to the content they capture.

The new Gear 360 camera can’t be used with non-Samsung Android devices. It only supports the Galaxy S8, Galaxy S7, Galaxy S6 series as well as the Galaxy A5 (2017) and Galaxy A7 (2017) currently.

Customers in the United States can now purchase the Gear 360 for $229. It’s actually $100 cheaper than the original Gear 360 from Samsung.
