Press release:

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- JK Imaging, Ltd., the worldwide licensee for KODAK PIXPRO Digital Cameras and Devices, announced today its new SP360 Action Cam. This game-changing, innovative and highly portable device is designed to capture stunning 360 degrees HD videos and fully immersive images all in one shot and without the need for multiple cameras and devices.

The SP360 Action Cam is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand and sports a unique, dome-shaped fixed lens that captures stunning 360 degrees HD videos (30fps) that can be shot and viewed from multiple vantage points including: 360 degrees Panorama, Front (212 degrees), Split with 180 degrees front and rear views simultaneously, Dome (214 degrees) and Ring/Sphere (360 degrees) modes.

Until now, 360 degrees panoramic photography required most users to possess some advanced techniques, specialized equipment, editing software to stitch content together and most importantly, the need for multiple cameras. "The SP360 Action Cam revolutionizes this sometimes cumbersome process and streamlines what really matters, capturing users not only doing what they love, but them engulfed in doing it," said Mike Hackett, executive vice president of JK Imaging, Ltd.

The SP360 Action Cam goes beyond just capturing fully immersive 360 degrees HD video and adds a new level of interactivity with free, de-warping app software included for Mac or PC based systems, that allows owners to edit their content post capture. Once the HD video is downloaded from the SP360 to a computer, users have the ability to pan and select a multitude of viewing angles (including: top, left and right) and save them as new video files. Users can also select individual frames from different viewing perspectives in the HD video and save them as hi-resolution still photos for even more creative ways to capture and share their passions and experiences.

For even more flexibility, the SP360 is equipped with a motion sensor setting to automatically trigger recording when it detects movement, especially helpful for hands-free activities. The SP360 Action Cam is Wi-Fi® enabled and allows quick connection to a smart phone, smart device or personal computer (iOS™ 6, Android™ 4.0, Mac™ OS X10.9, or Windows™ 8/7 systems or higher) to act as an additional method of remote control or for viewing the content the user is shooting from up to 65 feet away. The SP360 uses the free PIXPRO SP360 iOS or Android-based App available in Apple's iTunes and Google Play stores now.

The KODAK PIXPRO SP360 Action Cam is splash proof, freezeproof (-10 degrees c), shockproof (2m), and dustproof. It is compatible with a microSDHC memory card, Class 6 or higher and up to 32GB capacity (memory card sold separately). The SP360 Action Cam comes with: a rechargeable Li-ion battery, battery charger, AC adapter, Micro USB cable, clear plastic lens cover, protective lens cover, carrying case and cleaning cloth.

The SP360 weighs only 3.63 ounces (103g) and is sold with 3 different accessory bundles so users can take the action cam on the go depending on their activity or adventures. The Explorer bundle for entry-level (MSRP US$349), the Aqua bundle for watersports (MSRPUS$349) and the Extreme Accessories bundle (MSRP US$399) which includes: bar mount for multiple mounting options such as handle-bars; flat adhesive mount for skate or paddle board; curved adhesive mount head strap; helmet mounts; surfboard adhesive mount; suction cup mount; extended arms; quick clip; tethers; clear standard mount housing and clear waterproof housing.

    Sweet!

  • Spy Black

    Isn’t that a 180° hemispherical FOV? How is it 360°?

    • Nacho

      Yes. Is only semi sphere

    • BdV

      Too late, they already named it the SP360…

    • Camaman

      360 in a circle not in a sphere?

  • zev

    NOT 360°, 180°.

    • SH*T666

      A circumference also has 360º, isn´t it? Only a ball camera floating in the space with a spherical lens could shot a spherical panorama with a single lens.

      • Nacho

        google “ricoh theta”

        • SH*T666

          That camera has two lenses, no one lens, but yes, I forgot this camera as it is only an expensive toy.
          Also, you can´t print the pictures taken with the Theta (only the flat version) and is really limited for sharing and mailing pictures.
          I find this Kodak-JKI camera far more interesting than a Go Pro, but still need wait pro reviews.

          • Nacho

            But even in the flat version can see all around . This kodak no.

          • SH*T666

            The flat version is just a joke. Please read reviews carefully. Also, if you place the camera over a table or on the floor, no way you can take a spherical panorama. Mounted in a tripod the panorama also would include the tripod mount and the legs of the tripod. Real spherical panorama? Impossible.

  • Arturo Mieussens

    Well, you can point it in any direction. 360º… you know. :-/

  • SH*T666

    Helmet mounts security should be revised after Schumacher´s accident. I am not going to try another helmet mount until all security problems be solved.

  • Tinusverdino

    what no 4k? useless :p

  • Yes man, I can’t see no 360° WTF?!

  • nwcs

    I’m going to go a full 360 degrees on my decision to not buy this.
