Samsung's Gear 360 gets all the basics right for a consumer 360 camera.

It's small, easy to use for capturing and editing , the video quality is good for a first-generation model and it's affordably priced at $349.99.

The Gear 360 is not the first consumer 360-degree video camera — Kodak, Ricoh, LG and several other companies also make them — but it could be the most user-friendly.

That's saying a lot since this whole 360-degree video thing also called 360 video or VR video is still very new for us normals.

Though 360-video capture and 360 videos aren't new, there is a growing interest for them thanks to the rise of virtual reality and VR headsets.

Much like how Samsung positioned itself to offer the best mobile VR experience with the Gear VR, the company is now doing trying to do the same for capture 360 video, at least for consumers.
