Nikon KeyMission 360


The Nikon KeyMission 360 is the easiest 360-degree camera to use and delivers strong quality video, but the technology is still in its infancy.

Pre-stitched 360-degree 4K video. 29MP still capture. Waterproof to 100 feet. Wi-Fi remote control. Electronic vibration reduction. Mac and Windows desktop software.

Doesn't double as a traditional action cam. Seams visible at close distances. Short battery life. Huge file sizes. 4K resolution at 24fps only. No mic input. Mounts aren't GoPro compatible.

The Nikon KeyMission 360 offers the most streamlined workflow for dual-lens, fully spherical 360-degree video footage to date. There's no need to spend hours converting footage into a usable format, as you have to do with Samsung Gear 360, nor do you...

Nikon Enters Action Cam Market with KeyMission 360° Camera


Along with the new D5 and D500‘s arrival at CES 2016, Nikon unveiled its upcoming action camera – the KeyMission 360.

You can find a listing for the camera here at B&H Photo but there’s no pre-order option available yet since we don’t know the price.

Nikon KeyMission 360


With its KeyMission range, Nikon has moved away from its still image camera heritage and moved into action camera territory, arguably arriving somewhat late to the party with its KeyMission 80 and KeyMission 170 cameras.
