Samsung is entering the 360-degree imaging market with their just released Gear 360 camera. Announced in conjunction with the S7 and S7 Edge, the camera will be made available in the second fiscal quarter of this year. The Gear 360 is made up of a set of fisheye lenses featuring 15 megapixel sensors that capture 3840 x 1920 high-resolution footage. Once shot, sync your footage to your Galaxy smartphone and view it on a Gear VR headset, share it on social media or even upload it to Google’s Street View.

The small stature of the Gear 360 makes it easily portable yet delicate. Only splash-proof and dust resistant, it is to be handled with care. That being said, the sleek design and slot for a microSD card (up to 120GB supported) and swappable battery give this device a pleasant user experience. There is, however, no word on pricing or additional capability with phones other than the S7 and S7 Edge. [Purchase]
