In the past week, I have been writing about 360 cameras. When we talk about 360 cameras then the main thing that concerns is the quality of the image or the video. Quality matters a lot to me. The quality of 360 cameras depends upon the number of lenses. Single lens 360 camera usually produce high-quality images. But double lens cameras has to stitch images to produce continous images.

Samsung Gear 360 review:-
Samsung has been a leader when it comes to technology and user experience. They just keep bringing awesome gadgets in the market. This time they have come up with Samsung gear 360. This gear can shot videos and capture pictures in a spherical view. It has two cameras which can shoot a 360 image but you can also use it to capture 180 images just by turning off one( yeah, draw back the feeling of control!). Although, it is a great gadget but drawback it just only supports Samsung devices Samsung Galaxy S6-S7, S6-S7(Edge), S6 Edge and also phones supported by Samsung gear manager app. So it is not for users like Apple and other brands.
