GoPro's Fusion 360-degree VR camera ships in November for $699

The company has revealed some crucial bits of information about the GoPro Fusion 360 camera.

Teased since CES in 2016, the Fusion builds upon the success of their existing cameras and has a few minor changes from the existing 360 camera lineup on the market.

The most impressive feature is called Overcapture, which can be used to take a 360-sphere of video, shot with a static Fusion camera, and then let photogs zoom in and out and pan across the footage. It's rugged as ever and waterproof out of the box to 33 feet.

The new camera still shoots 12-megapixel photos, in JPG or RAW, and GoPro's Wide Dynamic Range mode.

If you're interested, you can also watch a replay of the live event.

Ideal for those wanting to try out VR and other modern filming styles, one of the Fusion's coolest features is the fact that the grip mount can be automatically removed from your shots. "Fusion captures everything around you so you'll never miss the shot". While most VR cameras include some odd spots of a tripod or extension pole, Angel View is created to hide the included grip.

Putin, Erdogan to Hold Talks on Missile Sale, Syria Cooperation
The topic of S-400, Russia's most advanced missile systems which Ankara is planning to purchase, remains hotly-discussed in the media.

Overcapture, which records more than the footage necessary for the 360 scene and flattens it so you can use any section independently, reconstructed in software as if you were cutting a multicam shot (in a free update to the GoPro app, available 2018). It will also feature the more standard effects such as tiny planet and slow-mo.

It will ship in November, and the price is $699. It will also include the Fusion Grip, which is a tripod/selfie stick.

In fairness, this isn't a completely new feature, the Insta360 One has a similar feature, which it calls FreeCapture.

Aside from being an accolade, users will find the high frame rate helpful whenever they want to slow down footage and show action happening frame-by-frame - this is especially true with the GoPro Hero6's ability to shoot at 1080p and 240fps.

GoPro announced it lost $30 million during its earnings call in August but it was seen as a sign of improvement. It also has Wi-Fi, the standardised GoPro mounting system for attaching accessories, and works with the GoPro smartphone app. The Hero 6 is available now for $499, and can be bundled with GoPro's Karma drone for $1,199.
