Fresh from the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, the new KeyMission 360 from Nikon is the first action camera that shoots 360 degree video in 4K. The 360 captures video from two lenses, (one on each side of the tiny camera case), with the image sensors facing both directions placed in between. The setup combines the video output into a single, 360-degree perspective.
A rugged action camera similar to the GoPro, with 4K resolution, the camera is waterproof to depths of up to 100 feet. It can withstand dusty conditions, it is shock resistant and can even operate at low temperatures. It also supports an electronic vibration reduction feature to reduce camera shake which can be enabled through Nikon’s app during video playback. The camera also features Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and NFC for connectivity with your smartphone or tablet.
