Our Ultimate Holiday Wish List: Samsung Gear 360

For the social-media fiend on your list.

The Gear 360 merges images taken with two 180° wide-angle lenses to create 360° shots and videos. Photographers can hit record on the orb-shaped Gear 360 itself or use the smartphone app on a compatible Samsung Galaxy phone to adjust white balance, exposure, and more before capturing images. The best part is viewing the footage: friends and family can pan around 360° videos uploaded to Facebook, YouTube, or the Google Street View app. If you’re feeling extra generous, you could also add a head-mounted Samsung Gear VR so the giftee has a more immersive way to take in 360° content.
