Nikon KeyMission 360 action camera shoots spherical 360° 4K/UHD video

Previewed at CES 2016, the rugged Nikon KeyMission 360 is a compact, mountable action camera that gives you the power to shoot spherical 360° 4K/UHD video (at 24 fps) and high-resolution stills. The camera boasts two NIKKOR 1.6 mm f/2.0 lenses, each with a 180-degree angle of view, and two powerful RGB CMOS sensors. The images captured through each lens are automatically stitched together in-camera, creating one spherical 360° video or 23.9 MP still.

The camera weighs in at just 198 g with battery and micro SD memory card, and measures just 65.7 mm (2.6 in) at its widest edge. Large movie-record and shutter-release buttons are the only controls on the body of the camera. The rest of the camera’s settings are controlled using the SnapBridge 360/170 app. The Nikon KeyMission 360 will retail for $499 in U.S.
