Samsung Gear 360: Overheating Issues?



It seems that the Samsung Gear 360 is hot in more than one way.  The Samsung Gear 360 has been getting a lot of attention ever since it was released in Korea and Singapore on April 29, because of its excellent image quality.  However, it appears that the Gear 360 is not perfect.  One aspect that may be an issue for some users is that the camera can overheat after about 40 minutes of continuous shooting. 


Reader David Grass ordered a Gear 360 and he noticed that it would automatically shut down from overheating after about 40 minutes of continuous recording.  It turns out that he is not alone, and others have noticed a similar limitation.


Thus far, there has been no overheating for photos or for shorter videos.

  1. My Gear 360 started overheating after 10 minutes of shooting after the last firmware upgrade. Anybody else seeing this? Any solutions apart from heat sink hacks that will void my warranty?
