This week GoPro released a teaser for a new 360-degree camera called the Fusion in a blog post where GoPro founder and CEO, Nicholas Woodman said the following to announce it:
“Fusion is just that, the ability to capture every angle simultaneously…as though you had six GoPro cameras fused into one. Whether filming for VR or traditional fixed-perspective content, Fusion represents the state-of-the-art in versatile spherical capture.”
The camera looks to be a bit of a change for GoPro, moving from the typical action cam to a camera that can shoot at a 5.2k resolution and create both VR-ready and non-VR photos and videos from a single camera, making it different from the Omni, which was a camera rig from GoPro that basically held six GoPro HD Hero 4 Black cameras together to make 360-degree footage.
Fusion will presumably be designed for the consumer, allowing them to create footage like the following example.
Unfortunately, GoPro didn’t reveal and pricing or availability details, neither did they reveal any more specifications that what we have already mentioned.
But as soon as we hear more, we will be sure to update you.
In the meantime, you can read more about it on their blog at the source link.
