A while ago, I reviewed the Kodak Pixpro SP360 4K action camera. It was the world’s first 4K action camera, which is cool, but it just didn’t gain the public attention. Yeah it was capable of recording 360 degree videos but they weren’t the type that could be used for virtual reality videos. Well technically it was possible but you needed two of the Pixpro SP360 action cameras for that. JK Imaging, the company behind the Kodak camera brand, has realized this problem and they have now revealed their newest action camera: the Kodak Pixpro 4KVR360. The camera uses a 20MP sensor with lenses on both fron and back, which lets the camera record full VR compatible videos all on it’s own.
The Kodak Pixpro 4KVR360 can also be connected to a smartphone via WiFI and NFC. It can also take microSD cards with up to 128GB of storage, so there should be enough room to create a lengthy virtual reality experience.
So that is all that has been released so far. JK Imaging has announced that the Kodak Pixpro 4KVR360 won’t be available until 2017. Nor have they revealed a price. Considering that 2017 is far away and technology keeps advancing, I expect the price to be somewhere between $400-600.
