Access the photo and video settings for your Gear 360

Picture and video settings for the Gear 360 opened on a Note20

Not all pictures and videos are created equally. There are a number of factors, like sharpness, ISO sensitivity, and so much more that can be adjusted to create the perfect image or video. You can fine-tune several adjustments directly on the Gear 360 or using the Gear 360 app on your phone.

Gear 360 settings

You don't need your phone to apply the perfect settings for your photos and videos. Just adjust the settings right from the Gear 360 itself.

With the Gear 360 powered on, press Menu repeatedly until "Settings" appears on the display, and then press OK (the Record button). Next, press Menu repeatedly until "Mode settings" appears on the display, and then press OK.

You can adjust the following options:

Gear 360 Settings
  • Video size: Select the size of recorded videos.

  • Photo size: Select the size of captured photos.

  • Time lapse Video size: Select the size of recorded Time lapse videos.

  • Time lapse Video interval: Select the time interval in between time lapse photos.

  • Video looping size: Select the size of recorded looping videos.

  • Video loop recording time: Select the recording time for looping videos.

  • Landscape HDR: Select the size of Landscape HDR photos.

Photo options in the Gear 360 app

You have even more options to tweak your images in the Gear 360 app. Navigate to and open the Samsung Gear 360 (New) app on your phone, and then tap Camera. Tap MODE, choose Photo, and then tap the Settings icon.
