360fly 4K 360-degree action camera now available for AUD$849
360fly's 4K 360-degree action camera is now available from local retailers at an asking price of AUD$849.95. While the 360fly 4K is almost identical to the first 360fly, the original was only able to shoot 1504×1504 high definition video. The 360fly 4K ups this to 2880×2880 (which sounds odd, but offers the same number of pixels as a consumer-grade Ultra HD 4K display).
While the majority of 360-degree cameras on the market use two lenses and stitch together the resulting the video feeds, the 360fly 4K uses a single wide-angle 16MP sensor. This prevents noticeable seams from appearing in both videos and photos. Users are also able to film standard 16:9 video using the 360fly 4K's "first-person point of view mode".
The 360fly 4K has 64GB of internal storage, is waterproof to 10 metres, and is able to stream 360-degree video through an app called Livit.
The 360fly 4K is available locally as of today, via JB Hi-Fi, 360fly's website, and specialty retailers.
360-degree action cameras are set to be a rapidly expanding product category this year, with Nikon, Samsung, LG, and GoPro all throwing down the gauntlet.
