Samsung Gear 360 Camera

This camera is a bit different than the others on this list. Not only is it able to capture three dimensional images and videos, but it can capture a 360-degree panoramic view. In a sense, this three-dimensional view is similar to a virtual reality. In fact, the videos and images captured with this device can be used with virtual reality headsets.

Direct Connection with Your Phone

Another important difference between this camera and the others is that it can be installed directly on to your phone, if you have a Galaxy device. It also is exceptionally easy to use. It goes particularly well with the S7/S7 Edge and the Gear VR, but the range of devices it can be used in conjunction with is limited. So, one drawback is that you won’t be able to simply hook it up to your television set.

Low Lighting Conditions

If you are looking to film in low lighting conditions, the Samsung Gear 360 is good. It has an f/2 lens. This is the largest aperture of any of the cameras featured. In addition, it has a high ISO that allows it to capture images in a variety of lighting conditions.

Transportability of The Camera

While the camera comes with its own tripod, it’s possible to attach it to a variety of other tripods. This makes it easy to film scenes in a variety of settings. In addition, the camera is waterproof. This also can greatly increase the versatility of the device.

There are some downsides to this camera though. For one, the image that is captured tends to have very apparent stitch lines. This can be difficult to edit out. The microphone also isn’t that good, and it may even necessitate having a separate microphone to capture the sound. In addition, it is not easy to transport this device. It can’t be carried in one’s pocket. Therefore, it is typically necessary to carry it in a case or backpack of some kind.

In addition, it is a bit heavier than some of the other 360 degree cameras that are on the market. In fact, it weighs in at double the weight of LG’s 360-degree camera. Still, it weighs about the same as a cue ball for pool. Too heavy to be carried in a pocket, but it can easily be transported in a backpack or duffle bag.

Speed of The Camera

One downside is that you can’t do burst shooting, and it isn’t a very fast camera. It also can be a bit slow to transfer photos and videos to other devices. To shoot and finalize a one minute video with Bluetooth, it will take you a bit over three minutes. Still, this isn’t too bad. It only takes around five seconds with a photograph. This is fast enough that it can be used quite effectively for most photography purposes.

Pricing

However, the pricing of this camera is good. It’s easy to get good deals on it used. Of course, you can also get a new one off the internet. The price on a Samsung Gear 360 new tends to be around 300 – 350 dollars, but it’s possible to get one even cheaper.

Review: The Panasonic Lumix 3D Series

Panasonic is one of the most widely known camera manufacturers, and they make excellent three dimensional cameras. Panasonic Lumix 3D cameras have been reviewed extremely well, and they are available for the reasonable price of $699.98. When you photograph something with their three-dimensional cameras, they don’t just take a singular photograph. It takes two photographs and then automatically puts them together in a manner to create a three-dimensional image.

Simultaneous Shooting of Two Images

With some three-dimensional cameras that take two images, the two images are taken at different times. This can result in problems, if there is movement in them at the time. However, the Panasonic Lumix 3d series takes both photographs at the same time. Therefore, the danger of movement ruining the photo is much smaller.

The Zoom Feature

In addition to producing a three-dimensional image, it also offers a zoom feature. While the zoom on the camera is only four power, it makes a significant difference in terms of what you can see in the image.

Use in Low Lighting Conditions

If you are going to be taking photographs in a dark space, this is a good camera to choose. It has a large F3.9 to F13 aperture. This is significantly larger than the standard 35 mm lens. The ISO sensitivity is 3200, which is quite high compared to many digital cameras on the market. This makes it much more likely that the image will be crystal clear despite the lighting conditions.

Other Features of The Device

Not only can it shoot three dimensional photographs, but they are clear and in high definition. If you ever would like to take a two-dimensional photograph instead of a three dimensional one, it’s possible to do that with this camera too.

It is important to note that images are not shown in 3D on the screen for the camera. To see the three-dimensional image, you will need to connect the camera to another device. Luckily, this is extremely easy to do. It can be easily connected to a computer or a television set.

If you are interested in uploading your film to YouTube, that’s very easy to do. In fact, it can upload your movie in high definition! However, it may or may not be possible to watch your three-dimensional video on YouTube. Some viewers may not be able to watch three dimensional videos from their browser, but it still would be possible to watch it in two dimensions.

Even though the screen does not show three dimensional images, it shows the image on the camera is quite high quality. In fact, it is a touchscreen LCD screen.

Three dimensional images and videos do take up more space than two dimensional images and videos. However, there is quite a lot of space on this camera. In fact, there is 70 megabytes of it. That’s enough to fit quite a lot of movies and photographs. While it’s able to store a lot of photographs and videos, it is quite compact. This makes it exceptionally easy to transport.

Built in Internet Connection

Not only does this camera have all the bells and whistles that you’ll need for filming, but you can connect it to the internet directly. Yes, you read that right; this digital camera can be connected to the internet. That makes it exceptionally easy to share movies and photos online. Not only can you share directly using common video streaming platforms, but it is possible to put your videos anywhere that you choose. In addition, the camera can also be used for other purposes online.
