In addition to high performance spherical capture for fully immersive VR experiences, Fusion's 5.2K resolution enables a new OverCapture creative solution that gives content creators the flexibility to produce conventional non-VR video and photos in HD-quality "punched out" from the spherically captured angles.

GoPro just unveiled the Fusion, a new camera that's capable of recording really sharp spherical images for all sorts of use cases, including virtual reality.

The Fusion will be compatible with the company's mounts and accessories, GoPro said.


This summer, GoPro will be working closely with a selection of pilot partners - including brands, agencies and content professionals - to further refine the user experience and produce inspiring content that demonstrates the creative potential of Fusion. Like all other GoPro cameras, the Fusion will be easily mountable, with a specific focus on durability. Presumably, you'll also be able to create a conventional video with digital panning and tilting from the single stationary camera.

If you put on a VR headset and watch a video now, chances are it looks relatively blurry compared to something you'd see on a 4K TV. It's also planning a limited commercial release for the end of 2017 - unfortunately, we can't say how much you'll have to set aside, because the company hasn't revealed its pricing (and exact availability) yet. In the meantime, GoPro is launching a pilot program that will kick off later this summer. You can go as fast as possible without having to worry about framing shots or getting the most interesting things you see on cam.
