Kodak Launches 360-Degree 4K Action Cam And Accessories

Kodak’s SP360 is a small but powerful camera that can output 360-degree 4K videos. The camera features a dome on the top that houses the camera, which Kodak said has a 235-degree field of view. You can also combine two SP360 4K Action Cams end-to-end to record full spherical video.

A single SP360 4K Action Cam will record still images at resolutions as high as 2880x2880 (8K) and round video at up to 2880x2880 at 30fps. Kodak said the camera is also capable of recording 3840x2160 flat video and high speed 120fps video.

The SP360 cameras come bundled in two packages: a single camera bundle called the Premier Pack, which includes one SP360 camera, and a number of accessories, including a bar mount for attaching to handlebars, a suction cup mount with pivoting joint, protective lens covers, adhesive mounts, and a housing to attach the camera to the mounts. Kodak also includes a cleaning cloth and a tool to tighten the mounts.

The second bundle is called Dual Pack Pro, and as the name suggests, it includes two of the SP360 4K Action Cams. It also includes the housing for mounting the cameras to the mounts. This package doesn’t include all of the same mounting hardware; it omits the bar mount and adhesive mounts. Instead, the Dual Pro Pack includes a Dual Camera Base Mount and an extendable selfie stick to attach the cameras to. This package also includes a remote control that straps to your arm like a watch using a nylon Velcro strap.

Kodak said the camera is freeze-proof in temperatures as low as negative 10-degrees Celsius, and it's water resistant. The company has also designed two water-proof enclosures. One designed to be attached to any of the mount accessories. The other one features a wrist strap that lets you wear it like a watch.

Kodak said that software to stitch together the two video feeds is provided in the bundle. Software for editing is also included, though we were told that you don’t need to edit the video to stitch it together. You can use the controllers to synchronize both camera feeds and their respective audio tracks before starting a recording. Kodak’s included stitching software will automatically join the two files and then output in h.264 encoding, so you can edit them in your favorite video editing software.

Kodak’s SP360 4k Action Cam is available now for purchase. The single camera Premier Pack is priced at $499, and the two camera Dual Pro Pack comes in at $899.

Update: Jan 9, 2016 1:10am PT: The freezing temperature of the camera was incorrectly listed as 10-degrees when it should be negative 10-degrees C.

    2880x2880 (actually repeated twice) is NOT 8K (7680 x 4320). Not even two combined.

    think they meant megapixels, not doing the math but looking at numbers, i would assume that its close, square instead of rectangle but still close.

    that was directly pulled from the press kit from Kodak. I will reach out to them for clarification, but it is Kodak saying that resolution is 8K.

    I would hope it doesn't freeze at 50 degrees F, or 10 degrees C...

    whoever edited this after I wrote it made a mistake.

    I wrote -10 C.
    it was changed to 10-degrees rather than minus 10-degrees.

    7680 is NOT even 8k that's 7k with margin
