GoPro unveiled its 360-degree Fusion camera in late September and the company has now started shipping the device. However, some software features that the company talked about during the camera’s launch are not going to be available at launch. They won’t be available for the camera until “early 2018.” The GoPro Fusion 360 camera is now shipping out in the United States and Europe.
The GoPro Fusion 360 is a 5.2K camera that’s capable of recording video at 30 fps. It’s also capable of recording 3K video at 60 fps. The camera can capture 18 megapixel photographs as well.
It has some other features as well which include voice control, water resistance up to 16 feet, and optical image stabilization. GoPro sells it for $699.
The camera has another feature called OverCapture. It allows users to recapture and share their 360 degree footage in a conventional fixed perspective video. While the company talked up the mobile OverCapture feature when the camera was announced, it’s not available at launch.
GoPro has said that customers will have to wait until early next year before they’re able to use the OverCapture feature. The feature lets them use a phone’s gyroscope to get the frame they wanted by moving the phone around physically.
Customers will be able to make these edits on their desktop with Fusion Studios, though. The visualization presets like PanoFlow and Tiny Planet will also not be available at launch.
The 360 degree camera for consumers that GoPro first talked about back at the Consumer Electronics Show 2016 will soon be available for purchase. The company has revealed some crucial bits of information about the GoPro Fusion 360 camera. GoPro CEO Nick Woodman teased the camera on stage today at the company’s San Francisco event. There, he confirmed how much the GoPro Fusion 360 camera is going to cost and when will customers be able to purchase it.
GoPro’s consumer 360 degree camera relies on two lenses to shoot video at up to 5.2K and 30 frames per second. It’s also capable of taking 18 megapixel spherical photos and capturing 360 degree sound.
The camera itself is waterproof up to 16 feet out of the box and is compatible with most GoPro accessories. It also has a plethora of other features as well such as Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS, accelerometer, gyroscope, and more. The camera will be able to do more than just capture spherical videos.
GoPro’s OverCapture feature will enable users to recapture and share their footage in a conventional fixed perspective video. GoPro confirmed today that its Fusion 360 camera is going to be available for purchase this November.
It’s going to be pricey. The company will charge $699 for it. The exact release date will be confirmed in several weeks.
