Price and availability of the Gear 360

But after an announcement from Samsung we learn that the Gear 360 will be available shortly in the United States. So the Korean company has decided to market its 360 ° camera in the USA in very limited stocks priced at $ 350. This is a pretty high price, the camera being more than 4 times more expensive than the helmet, although you cannot use the helmet without a very expensive laptop.

The Samsung Gear 360 camera will be available at VidCon stores in Anaheim, and the Korean company is also announcing that new models will be available later this year.

It is clear that Samsung is looking for now to do tests, of course at the price level, namely if the price is acceptable for customers, but also to have feedback on the first uses before the big start of marketing. Whether the price currently displayed for this week will be the final price remains to be seen. But we must admit that the price is greater than what we imagined.

At the same time, Samsung reveals its project named Samsung Creator, this project will allow Samsung to train new creators in the use of the 360 ​​° camera but also in the creation of VR content. Samsung then give various awards in several areas:
