As promised, I got the Samsung Gear 360 Camera. And you know what? It's pretty cool. If you wanna see some cool 360 photos, I have some to share with you.
What is a 360 Camera?
Samsung's Gear 360 Camera is a special little camera. It has 2 fish-eye lenses that capture footage in 180 degrees. When the 2 images are combined, you get a neat 360 photo that you can look around in.
The photos look even better when viewed in a VR Headset, like the Gear VR that I use. The camera also takes video footage as well, also in 360, but I haven't experimented with it enough to really show it off yet.
A better view of my Office
Remember when I showed off my office a few weeks ago? Well at the time, I had to use my phone's camera app to take a makeshift 360 photo. It wasn't perfect, but I promised a better look when I picked up the camera. Here is that better look.
Family Road Trip
I will also share a few pictures from our recent trip up to visit my folks. First up, is a great shot of all the kids riding in the back of the van.
And the other side of this photo, is me and my wife and the open road ahead of us.
Next up, is a shot at my mom's dining room table. Here I'm sitting down and goofing off, while showing my stepdad what the camera can do.
The last shot I have for you, is from my stepdad's home office. He is a avid drone enthusiast, so you can see just a small sample of his huge collection. Seriously, it's breath-taking.
Anyways, there you go. When I get some more time, I'm gonna play with the video functionality. So if you have some ideas for what you want to see, hit me up.
And if you have had your eye on the Gear 360 yourself, I recommend it. Treat Yo Self! This thing is really cool.
