GoPro has unveiled Fusion, a new pro-grade spherical camera capable of capturing regular and VR video at a 5. 2K resolution. The camera will be released this fall, but ahead of the launch comes a pilot program that GoPro will introduce this summer.
Interested professional content creators can apply to take part in the pilot program, which GoPro says will be used to 'refine the user experience. '
The company hasn't revealed many details about Fusion, saying only that it capable of recording 5. 2K spherical video at 30fps. Operators will also be able to produce ordinary non-VR videos from spherical videos using GoPro's OverCapture technology. GoPro's CEO Nicholas Woodman explains that Fusion can 'capture every angle simultaneously. . . as though you had six GoPro cameras fused into one. '
