GoPro Fusion is a 360-degree camera that shoots in 5.2K
GoPro has introduced GoPro Fusion, a spherical camera that is capable of capturing 360-degree video and images at 5.2K resolution at 30fps. It will be able to capture both fully immersive VR content as well as conventional non-VR video and photo formats.
The camera is compatible with broad range of GoPro's mounts and handheld accessories. It comes with a feature called OverCapture that gives content creators the flexibility to produce conventional non-VR video and photos in HD-quality "punched out" from the spherically captured angles.
"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." said GoPro founder and CEO, Nicholas Woodman
GoPro did not reveal the complete specifications, pricing or availability details, but starting today Professional content creators can apply to participate in the GoPro Fusion pilot program, which is expected to roll-out during summer of 2017.
GoPro is planning for a limited commercial release of the Fusion camera by the end of 2017.
