Kodak is entering the 4K realm with its new action camera PIXPRO SP360 Camera. PIXPRO SP360 is known for its versatility as a super wide lens camera. The price is ¥ 64,260 (around $530) that puts this camera in direct competition with the goPro 360 rigs. Now you just need to use two PIXPRO and you will be able to capture full 360 super high resolution with just two stiching seams. Compared to six GoPro’s this cuts production costs way down while keeping quality at a good level.
The SP360-4K can capture both videos and high-resolution photos while being able to pan 360 degrees horizontally and also do some surprisingly wide angle vertical shots to a range of 235 degrees. Furthermore, this camera comes with a fairly decent F2.8 aperture and also includes a ½.3-inch 12-megapixel BSI CMOS sensor.
The SP360-4K can shoot video in 4K UHD at 2880 x 2880 pixels and can also do time-lapse shooting or burst photo shooting as well. There are also 10 different viewing modes in the SP360-4K. These include Dome (235 degrees), Front, Global (360 degrees), Ring, Segment (180 degree segments in two opposite directions) or Panorama.
