GoPro Fusion orders have begun shipping! Check out the unboxing and 360 photo comparison by Sascha Endlicher.
GoPro Fusion is GoPro’s first all-in-one 360 camera. It was originally announced it April and generated a lot of interest not only because it was from GoPro, but also because it had a 5.2K video resolution and the 360 video teaser showed impressive stitching. GoPro also coined the term “overcapture” for presenting a cropped portion of a 360 video as a conventional 16:9 Full HD video. GoPro Fusion was formally launched on September 28, when GoPro announced its price of $699 and moved its availability from 2018 to November 30, 2017. The launch was moved up to November 24, and orders have begun shipping to some buyers.
