The camera will be released in fall 2017. This camera is capable of capturing spherical video for use in VR and standard video formats through a software solution. GoPro announced the Fusion.
GoPro provided a better complete solution and the market responded by making the company top-selling vendor.
The company says in a press release that the Fusion records 360-degree video at 5.2K30 and features a mode called OverCapture that lets users go back and carve out a standard video file from the spherical footage. Essentially, GoPro is building a camera that lets users record literally everything and then select the best framing later.
GoPro’s advantage could be the software that lets users produce a standard POV-looking video from the captured footage. Traditionally videos captured by spherical cameras have a fish-eye look, which can be off-putting and distracting.
