Pair two of Kodak's new SP360 4K action cams, get VR videos


GSMArena News
Kodak's latest entrant into the action cam space (which is getting busier and busier each year) is the SP360 4K. As the name implies, the small cube-shaped camera has the ability to record in 4K (3,840x2,160) with its 12.4 MP sensor. But that's when you use its "front" mode, which comes with a 16:9 aspect ratio. There's also the "global" setting which brings with it a 1:1 aspect ratio and a shooting resolution of 2,880x2,880. In this mode, it captures an almost spherical image, 360-degrees horizontally and 235-degrees vertically. Fret not, however, for you can create a fully spherical VR film with the Kodak Pixpro SP360 4K - you just need two of them. If you pair a couple of these, and place them back-to-back, you've got your VR footage. Kodak even sells a two-pack, which also includes a dual-camera mount as well as software that stitches everything together after you're done shooting. One Kodak SP360 4K currently goes for $499, while the double-pack is priced at $899. Using the camera's built in Wi-Fi lets you control it with your iPhone or Android device. Source |...
