GoPro has announced this week that it will release a new camera, The Fusion later this year, a camera specifically designed for VR and spherical video, but unlike others on the market, it will be able to capture non-spherical video as well.
It captures fully spherical video at 30 fps 5.2K resolution, making it ideal for virtual reality rigs. Thanks to the company's OverCapture reframing solution, you can also crop HD-quality videos and photos out of the raw footage, giving you multiple creative avenues on every shoot.
“Fusion is just that, the ability to capture every angle simultaneously…as though you had six GoPro cameras fused into one,” said GoPro founder and CEO, Nicholas Woodman. “Whether filming for VR or traditional fixed-perspective content, Fusion represents the state-of-the-art in versatile spherical capture.”
The Fusion is not yet available to the public, but you can sign up to be part of the pilot program here.
