Mounted on an extendable selfie pole, this camera was quick to snap that shot before anyone could realise what was going on!
It doesn’t take long to work out the best capture settings, as it is pretty much point and shoot. Lighting can be an issue in the dark, or if one lens has a light shining on it, which can cause a halo effect after the automatic stitching between the two.
With the various camera functions this could be all you need with you. I took many other action cameras with me on a recent ski trip, but didn’t use any of them, opting for just the versatile Samsung Gear 360 only.
The battery lasts a good hour or more continuously recording, but with a 128GB memory card in it, you might want to power it up continuously when the weather permits. Being dust and splash proof, you will need to keep the battery/SD card access door closed to retain the IP53 certification, but overall, it’s a robust bit of kit that you should have in your pocket at all times!
