Poll: are you interested in buying / do you own a 360-degree camera?

Right now, Samsung and LG both offer 360 cameras, which employ two 180-degree lens, working in tandem to create photo and video spheres. While a great leap for consumer-grade VR cameras, they are still 1st generation tech, and still have their kinks, mainly in image quality, while still being rather pricey – $200 for the LG 360 Cam and $350 for the Samsung Gear 360.
All that said, it's pretty cool to have a small, portable camera that can shoot immersive videos of your hike, dance or band rehearsal, workspace, or whatever else interesting you have going on in your life. We certainly see the appeal and love playing with those. Do you want to buy or own one?
Are you interested in buying / do you own a 360-degree camera?
I am buying one ASAP / I own one
I am still looking at samples and reviews, trying to decide if they are good enough
I will hold off at least until the next generation of 360 cameras
I don't see myself ever buying a 360-degree camera
I see it as a gimmick right now.

I dont understand? he just said it is a gimmick for him yet you assumed that apple has to come up with its own 360 degree camera to make it not a gimmick. He didn't even say anything about apple ALSO no one is talking about apple other than yourself.

I really don't see a point in this, those who have one, how do you use it and how does this look on someone's phone who does not own a VR headset?

Capturing 360 photos/videos of the kids and the surrounding people at Birthday parties is priceless. Best way to view 360° videos on any devices is to upload them to Youtube. "Unlisted" the videos so only people with the links can view them.

My LG 360 camera is pretty cool. It has options to take videos in 360 or 180 mode. Not to mention you can take 360 pictures just by quickly pressing the button. Making it the fastest way to take a panoramic images. For videos the LG 360 camera has a lot of mics and when you move your head around on the VR headset, then the sound changes with your view. The Samsung Gear 360 has a higher resolution, but it doesn't have the ability to track the direction of the recorded sound.
