JK Imaging Europe Ltd., the worldwide licensee for KODAK PIXPRO Digital Devices, has unveiled the extraordinary, evolutionary new KODAK PIXPRO SP360-4K Camera, the worlds first and most complete 4K recording device to capture stunning 360° immersive videos and still images without the need for multiple cameras.
WhatGear absolutely love the Kodak PROPIX SP360 so much so that we have started filming a number of productions using the SP360 and have some very exciting projects coming very soon, but I can't say any more on what's coming as it's all very hush-hush! The Kodak PIXPRO SP360 Action Camera has received many outstanding reviews by the online community which is no surprise given that the SP360 is on the forefront of leading technology that has given YouTube content creators to ability to produce and share 360-degree videos with the world.
And it's not just the online community that have recognised the strides that Kodak have taken with this all seeing palm sized box of goodness, the SP360 has also been recognised by the online powerhouse Google for being one of only a very small handful of devices to support YouTube's relatively new support for 360-degree videos. Kodak have made it very easy for 360 content creators by delivering some free SP360 video editing software which enables video enthusiasts to transcribe any video created with the press of a single button to YouTube 360 degree format. This process has effectively given anyone the power to create Virtual Reality movies. This is something that WhatGear really believe in and expect to see become much more mainstream in the very near future thanks to companies such as Kodak.
As with it's predecessor the SP360-4K Camera capture 360-degree field of view in multiple directions via its dome shaped lens design and the 360-degree footage can not only be panned horizontally but also vertically making it a great option for use with the Google Cardboard. It is easy to use and it's small enough to fit in the palm of your hand or a pocket which makes it extremely portable. In fact AV Dave can often be seen wandering around with it swinging from one of his growing lanyard collection.
