There’s no doubt 360-degree spherical cameras are polarising in the marketplace. Making a camera that captures more content than users can realistically handle is a foreign concept to many, but when done right it’s clear that they can occupy a significant chunk of the market.
Enter GoPro, a company synonymous with sports/action cameras and constant innovation in the pocket-sized HD camera space. The brand’s latest offering, the GoPro Fustion, is certain to be one of the better 360-degree cameras out there, delivering quality 5.2K/30fps footage (you can also hit 60fps if you downgrade to 3k) in a very friendly package that does much of what other GoPros do so well.
Couple that with the company’s all-new Overcapture feature, which allows users to shape the 360 video into more traditional views allowing even your parents to make dope travel edits, and you’ve got yourself a highly functional HD camera that will shoot unique that you’re actually going to want to edit and play around with. Very much a break away from 360 cameras we’ve seen over the past few years.
