GoPro Fusion 01

GoPro is just about single-handedly responsible for bringing wide-angle action video to the masses. But GoPro is also an adaptive company and not complacent to rest on its past successes. In response to the growing trend of VR and 360-degree spherical content, GoPro has developed Fusion with the ability to capture immersive 5.2K 360-degree movies. 

The camera features:

  • 5.2K30 and 3K60 Spherical Video
  • 18MP Spherical Photo
  • OverCapture Allows for Traditional Video Creation from 360 Footage
  • Advanced Stabilization
  • 360 Audio
  • Waterproof to 16ft (5m)
  • Time Lapse Video + Photo, Night Lapse and Burst Modes
  • Voice Control in 10 Languages
  • GPS, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass
  • Wi-Fi + Bluetooth
  • In-box with: Fusion Grip, protective case, sticky mounts, battery, charging cable

GoPro has a reputation for great design, and this camera is already receiving praise for its outstanding design and engineering, earning a CES 2018 Innovation Award in the digital imaging category. Users can control the camera, live preview their shots, and stitch, trim and share content with the iOS GoPro app (Android coming soon). Desktop editing software supports a GoPro feature called  OverCapture, which lets you re-frame and save traditional fixed perspective videos from the captured 360-degree video. Yes, we’re much closer to being able to manipulate photos like Deckard. GoPro says a mobile OverCapture experience and new visual presets including Tiny Planet and PanoFlow will be released in early 2018.

Fusion is available today on and shipping 11/14/17 to USA, Canada, United Kingdom and the European Union for $699.99 (US); €749.99 EUR.

    1. Looks very similar. I would think that the distance between the lenses is very critical and the thinner models would be better. What do you think? Is there much distortion where the images are stitched together?
