How long does it take when you're​ taking a 360 degree photo with this camera? And is this camera just a toy?

    "is this camera just a toy?" That is purely opinion-based. A Ferrari is just a toy for the very wealthy, in the eyes of a person who doesn't care about performance cars. Finger paints are "just a toy" in many people's eyes, but amazing art has been made with them. – scottbb Mar 18 '17 at 18:35

    Everything is a toy if you use it for a joy. – Crowley Mar 20 '17 at 10:42
  • @scottbb I have tried that camera for now (V1.0) and You can take high-quality pictures with that, but it's frustrating slow. If You're going to take only one Picture from some place, then I say buy it. But if You are about to take a multiple pictures, like mapping bigger area to Google Street view, I recommend to bough something else. – Tomi Karjalainen Sep 30 '17 at 20:10

Same as any other camera. It's two fish eye lenses mounted back to back. Take an instantaneous single shot or take a movie. Your choice.

It's a tool if you NEED 360 pictures. A toy if you don't. For most people I suspect it's a toy, and quite an expensive one.

  • Yes, I had opportunity to try Samsung Gear 360 Camera vol.1, and working with that item were slow and frustrating. – Tomi Karjalainen Sep 28 '17 at 14:06
