Finally, GoPro has unveiled more details of its upcoming product, the GoPro Fusion. This is their new 360 action camera which will take on the likes of Samsung’s Gear 360 and Ricoh Theta. While other 360 cameras are bumping up in camera specs and form factor, GoPro is putting more emphasis on the output of its videos. The difference lies in the software which will make it more effortless to edit and share your content.
GoPro is finally entering the 360-degree camera game with their very own product and it’s called the GoPro Fusion…or at least I think they are. After seeing the coverage for GoPro’s new toy, it sounds more and more like vapourware to us.
GoPro is still a household name for action cameras but they are quite late in bringing VR to the masses. Early this year we’ve seen several brands offering out of the box 360 VR content creation devices like the Nikon 360 and Samsung Gear 360.
GoPro did have a couple of 360 tools like their circular rig with 16 GoPros mounted on it but it isn’t exactly designed for spherical VR and it’s far from practical for mainstream use. For something more livable, GoPro has finally unveiled this little cube and it’s called the Omni. It has six GoPro HERO4 Black cameras with one mounted on each side.
