Samsung Gear 360 deal slashes price to the lowest we've seen

The Samsung Gear 360, the cute 360-degree shooting camera, launched just a year ago in August 2016 for $350, but it has already gone down in price a lot and this latest deal cust the price for the Gear 360 to the lowest we have ever seen.

You can now get the Gear 360 for just $87.60 on Amazon, a hefty $263 off the original price.

Meanwhile, Samsung has recently launched the second generation of the Gear 360 that now comes with a slightly different, evolved design and does not feature the same round body and cute, fold-out tripod, but is instead shaped like a reverse bowling pin.

The original Gear 360 is a white orb consisting of two cameras on both sides, each capturing 180-degree video, and the result is automatically stitched together for an almost seemless 360-degree photo or video.

Here is a quick run-down of the most important specs for the Samsung Gear 360:

  • Dual 15MP CMOS Sensors
  • Dual f/2.0 Fisheye Lenses
  • 3840 x 1920 Video Recording at 30 fps
  • 30MP Still Images in Dual Lens Mode
  • Dual & Single Lens Modes
  • Built-In Wi-Fi, Bluetooth & NFC
  • Supports microSD Card Up to 128GB
  • Google Street View Compatible

This is not a bad camera. From the research I did a couple months ago, this camera takes the best still images of all the 360 cameras out there and is much better than Samsung's own newer 2017 Gear 360 camera.
