Apparently, there is still space for another brand of action cams. Nikon showed their first action camera at CES, promising a uniquely immersive perspective of life to those adopting the camera.
The new Nikon KeyMission 360 is not going to be Nikon’s only action cam, but the starting point of a lineup of products that build “on Nikon’s legendary excellence in optical technology and imaging innovation”. That’s how the company presented the new product, which is a rugged camera capable of, says Nikon, “recording true 360-degree video in 4K UHD allowing users to share new perspectives and explore imagery like never before.“
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. A terrific companion for a wide range of travel, sports or when an adventure takes a turn off the beaten path, the camera is designed be easy to use and withstand the elements. Waterproof (approx. 100 ft./30m), and ready to stand up to dust, shock and low temperatures, the KeyMission 360 also features electronic Vibration Reduction (VR), enabled through applications during playback, that reduces the effects of camera shake to help produce sharp and crisp video quality.
The KeyMission 360, the first of Nikon’s lineup of action cameras, along with a variety of dedicated accessories, will officially be released in Spring 2016.
