Odyssey’s little brother, GoPro’s 360° camera that was announced in autumn 2015, was presented to the world a couple of hours ago. While Odyssey is something for professional users with a bulging wallet, you can already buy Omni for an impressive 5,000 US Dollars.
Omni is equipped with six cameras of the type Hero4 Black (4k videos with 30 images per second) which are assembled in cubic shapes, which creates a 360° view. The delivery package also contains an additional waterproof transport container, a USB hub, six microSD cards and six card readers each, a remote control as well as a tripod.
Once you’ve chosen the perfect setting for your 360° video, you put the camera on the tripod where it can record a VR image or a VR video. Finally you’ll only have to transfer the records of the six cameras on your computer and merge them with special software.
With a VR headset it seems as if you were actually at the location. This promises to be great fun! 🙂
