GoPro Fusion hands-on review

 

The GoPro Fusion elevates the bar for standalone 360 cameras.

OverCapture creates stunning fixed-frame content ; Angel View magically erases the extension pole ; 5.2K resolution looks good (at least on a phone) ; Easy-to-use mobile app

Some features not available at launch ; More expensive than the competition ; Requires two MicroSD cards

Review: the GoPro Fusion is a different kind of action camera

 

Unlike most 360 cameras, the GoPro Fusion is designed to create both spherical and standard HD videos. If action/adventure is your game and your workflow is geared towards mobile and web, the Fusion may be the camera you're looking for.

GoPro Fusion

 

The GoPro Fusion lets you do more with 360-degree video than other cameras, but its mobile software experience could use some refinement.

Captures 360-degree video at 5.2K resolution. OverCapture brings life to 360 footage. Photo and time-lapse modes. Rugged build. Strong image stabilization. Compatible with GoPro mounting system.

Pricey. Video stitching requires some serious horsepower. Mobile OverCapture editing tools need a little work. Huge file sizes. Gets very warm when recording.

GoPro wasn't nearly first to the 360-degree camera space, but the Fusion breathes some life into the medium. Yes, there's the initial whizbang factor of 360, and VR in general, but is it sustainable? Like fads that have come and gone—3D, I'm looking at...

GoPro Fusion 360 degree camera to launch at CES 2018

 

GoPro to launch Fusion 360 degree camera with WiFi : For over a year GoPro is teasing us with their new 360 camera. The company already released a video showing the capabilities of the 360 degree camera and started a pilot some months ago. But GoPro...

The folks over at 360 Rumors believe the GoPro Fusion 360 camera will make its debut somewhere around March 2018. We on the other hand believe the camera will arrive sooner and will most likely be presented at CES 2018 (January). Why we think this?

GoPro Fusion 360° Action Camera In-Depth Review

 

Just shy of a year ago GoPro announced initial details around their consumer-oriented 360° action camera, Fusion. But it wouldn't be until this past November that the company started shipping the $699 dual-lens unit. Since then I've been using the...

Review: GoPro Fusion 360 camera

 

Spherical cameras seem to be one of the more undesired tech trends to be pushed on people in the past couple of years. Consumer tech companies have opted to develop these expensive products as a segue into capturing the user-generated VR vertical, but...

The software is where the Fusion has the most potential, but also where GoPro has the most to work on. GoPro’s much-hyped Overcapture feature, which allows you to capture more traditional windows inside the spherical content, is far too labor-intensive...

GoPro Fusion

 

'Re-shoot' your VR footage with ease. GoPro Fusion.

Great image quality ; OverCapture delivers compelling traditional footage ; Easy to use

Transferring footage through the app is slow and fiddly ; Limited Android support for OverCapture ; Relatively expensive

The GoPro Fusion’s headline OverCapture mode lets you get some really creative video from your VR footage.

Great image quality ; Top-quality stabilisation ; Overcapture is loads of fun

Buggy desktop software ; Very limited phone support

The software needs work, but this is the 360 camera you should be drooling over

GoPro Fusion review: The 360-degree camera you've been waiting for

 

Overall, the GoPro Fusion is a 360-degree camera that's stupidly simple to shoot with and capable of producing very impressive video. Its real win is

OverCapture 'pan within footage' software is brilliant ; Footage looks fantastic once edited in app ; Waterproof and durable build ; Easy to shoot ; Very versatile ; Fusion Grip included

No OverCapture for Android (yet) ; It costs a lot ; Learning curve is steep if you've never shot 360 degree before ; Desktop solution is hard work

Overall, the GoPro Fusion is a 360-degree camera that's stupidly simple to shoot with and capable of producing very impressive video. Its real win is OverCapture, though, which on iPhone is utterly brilliant.
