New 4k 360° video camera:
Keymission 360 nikon_keymission_360

The KeyMission 360 features an image sensor and lens combination on two opposite sides of the camera, and images from each are combined in-camera to create a single realistic, high-definition, 360° image. The camera itself is waterproof to depths of 30 metres without a separate housing, and is also very tough, standing up well to dust, shocks and low temperatures. In addition, reliable electronic vibration reduction, enabled via applications during playback, reduces the effects of camera shake, producing sharp and crisp movie quality. It has been designed for a variety of challenging conditions typical of the action camera market, while ensuring maximum ease of use and freedom of movement to facilitate a wide spectrum of outdoor sporting and leisure activities.

KeyMission 360 sales start date & price are to be confirmed.
