When the GoPro Fusion is released this fall, it will be the first spherical camera the action-camera giant has ever produced. Early details: it will record 360-degree video at 5.2K30 for VR and standard video formats. In addition to 360, it features a function called OverCapture that allows users to extract a standard video file from the 360º footage. GoPro will also offer software that allows users to create a more POV-style experience rather than the circular fisheye effect produced by most of its competitors.
Winner of both a Red Dot & IF Design Award and built by Zero Zero Robotics, the Hover Camera Passport is an AI powered autonomous camera drone now available exclusively through the Apple Store. It uses body & face recognition plus AI to follow you mid-air, always keeping you in the frame as it captures 13MP pictures &/or streams video directly to your device. It you want to fly it like a normal drone simply link with the app & control it with your phone.
