Spherical video could be recorded at either 5.2K at 30 frames per second, or 3K in 60 fps. This appears to be a great deal, but as immersive movie is stretched across a round area, you are just considering a portion of these pixels at any 1 moment. However — as much as we can tell from reviewing footage onto a telephone — picture quality appears really sharp. The Fusion may also save 360-degree still pictures at 18-megapixel resolution.
The camera has not altered its look since we first saw it, however, we now know it houses the anticipated USB Type-C interface under a detachable door (GoPro currently uses USB-C across its whole camera lineup except for the Hero Sec). Behind another door is located the battery, which can be bigger than that of a Hero5/Hero6 Black, though we can not say for certain at the moment if it provides enhanced battery life. Together with the specs currently official, and having experienced a second chance to check it out in person, we could provide up our initial impressions within our GoPro Fusion hands free inspection.
Notice: The camera won’t be accessible until November 2017, and our opinions are based on prototypes and beta software, so a lot will change between today and the camera launch. Where other dual-lens 360 cams make because of just one memory card, the Fusion really records footage to double MicroSD cards, one per camera module. The program is intelligent enough to fit the right documents and stitch them automatically, thus we imagine this will not be a substantial nuisance, at least if you opt to move files into your computer using a direct USB link, instead of taking out the cards and placing them at a reader. While the primary class at GoPro’s September press event was unquestionably the Hero6 Black, the provider also shared fresh information about the Fusion, its very first onscreen 360-degree camera. We had been treated to a brief hands on adventure of the Fusion before, but a lot of the camera, for example its own specifications, stayed secret. DESIGN AND SPECIFICATIONS
