GoPro launches Fusion "six-in-one" camera

GoPro launches Fusion

Today the company revealed its new spherical camera, called GoPro Fusion, and with that reveal indicated its intention to step into the world of VR content creation. The action camera-maker also launched a pilot program for professionals to try out the upcoming device. It's hard to capture really high resolution spherical video, which is why we're only now starting to see companies like Facebook and GoPro introduce cameras with these capabilities.

Fusion is particularly notable for its "OverCapture" feature that is enabled by its 5.2K resolution. From there, you have the flexibility in post-production to pick and share all sides of your story in conventional HD.

The official said the lottery system that selects workers under the H-1B programme could be an evident target of reforms. It directs federal agencies to propose reforms to the H-1B program that prevents the displacement of American workers.

That's because Fusion is capable at capturing photos at video at an impressive 5.2K resolution. This will seem very helpful for users who might want to record some stunts by themselves, and they won't have to worry about being perfectly in-frame all the time.

In a statement, GoPro founder and CEO Nicholas Woodman said the new camera will let you "capture every angle simultaneously...as though you had six GoPro cameras fused into one".

Davis has organic brain damage and is intellectually disabled, while Ward has "life-long schizophrenia", the attorney said. Supreme Court ruling came hours after the state had cleared two of the main obstacles to resuming executions.

Fusion will be compatible with a broad range of GoPro's mounts and handheld accessories, and over the course of the next few months GoPro will be testing and refining the product with pilot partners in brands, agencies and creative professionals. In the meantime, GoPro is launching a pilot program that will kick off later this summer.

Content creators can apply to be part of the programme, which is expected to start later in 2017. Like all other GoPro cameras, the Fusion will be easily mountable, with a specific focus on durability. 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.
