128GB Micro SD's go for £32-40 so this is a great pre order deal.

I'm looking forward to not having to swing my phone around for HDR Panoramas anymore. Great for capturing moments without being invasive.

That doesn't sound at all creepy

It's about tackling being on a device all the time. I capture photos for memories, 360 in principle is great because I can be somewhere spectacular and whip out the camera for a quick one button press and continue to enjoy being in the moment rather than focused on devices.

People that don't own, or haven't tried a VR headset yet, will not know the benefit of a 360 camera.

There was a great Nature episode on Yosemite, they uploaded a glider flight in 360:

Incredible. If it stutters on your Chrome get the extension h264ify so you get hardware acceleration for smooth playback

Would I be able to attach this to my cycle helmet?

Really wouldn't recommend unless you want brain damage
Has happened to many people
never attach ANYTHING to your helmet, whether or not the third party item comes with a helmet mount. They can get jammed into your skull like a nail in a piece of wood (the hammer being the thing your smash your head into)

I'll be interesting in buying this camera when it's half off - like what happened with the original gear 360 which had rrp of 300 but came down to 150 on a few sales

Don't forget Quidco (not sure if 4% or 1%?)

Oh yes, forgot about the quid co. It's 4 percent

​Very true

I've been looking out for a 4K 360 camera at a reasonable price all year, and this looks like the one right now. As I'm not willing to wait until November sales then a good deal with a card I will need to buy any way. But then why so cold?

This is the first deal I've ever posted and I was disappointed with the response. Not sure how the best deal on the market gets voted cold.

Mine shipped today! Can't wait until the weekend to head to parks/forests for some great pictures/vids.

Seems like if the first person votes cold, so many others follow. Should have put in the title "HD compatible, PS4 enabled, 4K future tech", that would have got some clicking HOT. I have been using my StreetView app since I discovered 360 photos, so will put my order in tonight, and look forward to exploring the whole picture.

How you finding your new gear 360 ?

My Mrs got me one as a surprise,she got it from Samsung so also got the free 128gb SD card

Got it yesterday, only taken a few sample pics/vids so far but loving it! Google Photos supports the 360 photos so it makes sharing a breeze too.

Next on the list is a remote shutter, already got a monopod ordered so your hand doesn't appear so big on the pic. I'll be going to Kew in a couple of weeks time so that should make for some spectacular photos!

Just got the 2016 on eBay for £100. They are being given away with mobile plans which is why so many people are now selling them... cheap !

​Quite right - this is what did for Schumacher, his skiing injuries were caused by his helmet cam.
