nikon_keymission360_3If the future of consuming content is in virtual reality, that means that there needs to be more tools created to facilitate such content. There are several cameras right now that will help with that, namely cameras that can capture footage in 360-degree mode. This means that with 360-degree content, users will be able to browse a variety of angles in the footage, thus creating a virtual reality experience if worn with the headset.

That being said if you’d like to capture 360-degree videos, you might be interested to learn that Nikon has entered into the 360-degree camera market with the launch of the Nikon KeyMission 360. This is Nikon’s attempt at an action camera that is small and light enough to be mounted, but at the same time comes with 360-degree video capabilities. To top things off, the KeyMission 360 is also capable of capturing footage in 4K quality.

According to Nikon, “The Nikon KeyMission 360 features an image sensor and lens on opposite sides of the device, with images from each combining to create a single immersive, ultra-high-definition 360-degree video and still image.” As it is an action cam, it also means that it will be rugged to a certain degree, such as waterproof up to depths of 30m, and will also be able to withstand dust, shock, and low temperatures.

It also comes with electronic Vibration Reduction which basically helps to reduce the amount of camera shake. Pricing of the KeyMission 360 is unknown at this point but it is expected to see a release in the Spring of 2016.
