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 |...
