This week at CES 2018 in Las Vegas, Kodak announced two new 360-degree cameras, including one 8K professional camera and a foldable 4K 360 or 3D camera.
The small 8K camera features three lenses is tentatively called the 360 Pro, is projected to cost around $1500 and is expected to launch in Q3 or Q4 of 2018, according to 360 Rumors blogger Mic Ty.
The second new camera is a foldable camera that, when folded up, looks similar to a Kodak PixPro Orbit 360 camera, with one lens on each site. When unfolded, the camera more closely resembles a 180-degree 3D cameras, like the LucidCam. Mic said it’s expected to retail for around $500, and there’s no timeline for its release.
So far, that’s all we know about the new cameras (head to Mic’s post for photos!).
These announcements come less than a year after the release of Kodak’s Orbit 360 camera. The 4K consumer-level 360 camera came after the success of Kodak’s dual PixPro camera A camera position for a given scene. You might shoot more than one shot from a single set-up (wide shot and close-up). for 360 video, but didn’t quite meet the industry’s expectations.
Kodak also announced an underwater case for the Orbit360, now available on Kodak’s website for $119.
