GoPro Fusion just got a major update that increased the resolution to 5.6K at 24fps (it was previously 4992 x 2496 at 30fps). There were other major improvements including to the desktop app. See the details here.
The update was unexpected because of the somewhat recent layoff of Kolor staff back in September. The most recent update until then had been in May 2018, and the Fusion’s Android app languished with important missing features (can’t export 360 photos or videos to the album, no overcapture). There was an impression that GoPro was going to cease updating the Fusion.
Hopefully, this major update shows that GoPro does intend to stay in the 360 industry and that the Android app will finally be completed.
In the meantime, I will post a comparison of the updated Fusion against the Insta360 One X (reviewed here) and Rylo (reviewed here), which also had received an update that increased its resolution from 4K to 5.8K. Will the Fusion’s increased resolution put its video quality further ahead of the One X and Rylo? We’ll see!
Thanks to Mark Edden for bringing this to my attention!
