Early Impressions of Nikon's KeyMission 360 Video Camera

Thanks to Chris Lavigne from Wistia, for sharing this article with us.

Until very recently, shooting 360 video was a hassle. Think complicated GoPro rigs with expensive stitching software and a time-consuming editing process.

But with point-and-shoot 360 cameras like the Ricoh Theta and the new Nikon KeyMission 360, the entire process is much simpler (and more enjoyable). With the KeyMission 360, you can press one button to record 4K equirectangular 360 video.

KeyMission 360 image quality


The KeyMission produces 4K 360 footage at 3840 x 2160. So how does our new little friend stack up against our GoPro rig? See for yourself!

The real world test



From start to finished edit, this video took less than 45 minutes to pull off. Thanks to the KeyMission's efficiency, we were able to shoot in between her patients' appointments. Since we didn't have to stitch any camera angles together, we were able to edit the video in less than 15 minutes.

CONCLUSIONS:

No stitching required, good resolution, software is unusable, but at $500 you should absolutely buy one if you want to start messing with 360
