Nikon KeyMission 360

Nikon announced its entry into the action camera market with the development of a lineup of action cameras. The first in this lineup is the Nikon KeyMission 360, a wearable action camera capable of recording true 360° video in 4K UHD.

Sensor & Chip:
Nikon KeyMission 360 consists of 2 lenses, and therefore 2 sensors. Currently I’m not sure which sensors (MP & brand) will be used nor which chip will be used for image processing.

Video Resolution & Frame Rate:
Each lens & sensor is capable of recording a 4K video with max. 30fps I guess. In comparison Samsung Gear 360 is recording two 2K videos.

Display:
It seems that there is no display on the Nikon KeyMission to check the settings.

Battery:
Also no info currently on battery and capacity. As the camera is waterproof, could be that the battery is built in.

Storage:
Also no info currently on how the recordings are stored. As the camera is recording two 4K videos we might se a SDcard used instead of the common microSD cards used in action cameras.

Connectivity & Ports:
Wireless
Nikon Keymission 360 features wifi, bluetooth and NFC!
Ports
Currently no info on ports (USB, HDMI,…)

Special Features:
A few special features were announced:

  • Camera is 30m waterproof without case
  • 2m shockproof without case
  • is resistant to dust and low temperatures
  • and there’s also an electronic Vibration Reduction that helps to reduce camera shake.

 

Retailer / Prices:

Currently no info, some retailers listed the camera without price. I’ve seen two different sites showing a price: one was 499 USD the other 1399 USD, so still unsure about a possible price range.

 

Sample Video

Here’s a sample video of the KeyMission in 360°; make sure to watch it on your smartphone within the YouTube App and turn around your phone!
