Samsung Gear 360

by Gbzh » Thu Jun 23, 2016 12:06 am

Hi there,
Just wondering if the Samsung Gear 360 is compatible with panotour/autopano for doing real estate virtual tours, as it will be a lot quicker than my tripod/gobbi/rteflex/fisheye setup I presently use!

Well you don't stitch it so no need for Autopano (because like the Ricoh Theta you first need to use the output from the device in their own software to get your equis), and the final output is an equirectangular panorama so it should be compatible with Panotour.

See if you can find some sample images taken with the Gear 360 and input them in Panotour.

Hi Annis, Thanks for that.
I have found a couple of images that seem to be done with a Gear 360 and they seem to work okay in panotour.
I'll let you/everyone know once I have found some more.

Hi there, just to say that I have done some tests and yes it does work with panotour. The quality of the image isn't spectacular, but for a real estate use, I think it will do fine! Especially taking into account the ease and speed of use!
