Las Vegas, NV—The new Kodak PixPro Orbit360 4K VR camera adopts a minimalist approach to an all-in-one 360º VR (virtual reality) camera. It sports two-fixed focus lenses housed in a futuristic-looking camera body.
Each curved lens is designed to work in tandem to capture full 360º 4K video that can be uploaded, along with photos, to social media platforms like Facebook and YouTube via the camera’s Smart Device app while on the go.
The PixPro Orbit360 4K camera features dual 20 megapixel, backside-illuminated, 1/2.3-inch CMOS sensors. The sensors work with two integrated curved lenses to produce three multi-view angles: a 360º spherical view using both lenses (155º and 235º); a 4K full-frame view (in front mode) with a 197º superwide-angle lens; and hemisphere view (in round mode) using the 235º field-of-view lens.
The camera is splashproof, shockproof to handle a 6.6-foot fall, dustproof and freezeproof to 14ºF. It also supports microSD card with capacities up to 128GB (Class 10 or higher).
The Orbit360’s fixed-focus lens “A” is a 1.633mm f/2.4 lens constructed of eight elements in seven groups. Its specs include: a max field of view of 207º in front mode (16:9) without a lens cover; 197º in front mode (16:9) with lens cover; 163º in VR mode (2:1) without lens cover; and 155º in VR mode (2:1) with lens cover. It has a focusing range of 30cm to infinity.
The specs for lens “B” include: a 1.257mm focal length; f/2.4 aperture; seven-group, eight-element construction; and a maximum field of view of 244º without the lens cover and 235º with the lens cover. It too has a focusing range of 30cm to infinity.
The camera provides electronic image stabilization for both stills and video. It can capture 27MP (7,360×3,680-pixel) 360º still images; 15MP (5,520×2,760) RAW/Globe images; and 8MP wide-angle photos (lens A). In burst mode, it can capture full-res images at 10 frames per sec.
Additional Kodak PixPro Orbit360 4K Features
In addition to 360° video, RAW/Globe video and wide-angle video, the 4K camera can record high-speed 360º movies at 1,440×720 at 120 frames per sec. Other shooting modes include time-lapse and loop recording.
Additional features include a 1-inch TN backlit status LCD; a three-axis level gauge; ISO sensitivities of 100–3,200; exposure and white balance controls, including underwater; and a stereo microphone jack.
Compatible with both iOS and Android devices, the Kodak PixPro Orbit360 4K VR camera offers built-in Wi-Fi, NFC and Bluetooth connectivity. A optional remote control is available. LVCC, South Hall 2, Booth 26412
