Nikon KeyMission 360 (5)

Whilst the Nikon KeyMission 360 isn't due to be available to buy in shops until the beginning of November, we were able to get one to review, and have posted an unboxing video, plus sample photos and videos from the new camera.

The KeyMission 360 is shockproof to 2m, waterproof to 30 meters (with underwater lens protectors fitted) and freezeproof. There are two f/2.0 lenses built-in, for a full 360x360 image and with two 21 megapixel sensors, the camera can take 30 megapixel still photos. The camera records 4K UHD video and has built-in Wi-Fi and low-power Bluetooth.

With two ultra-wide-angle lenses covering a full 360x360 degrees care needs to be taken to avoid getting your fingers in the shot. The Nikon KeyMission 360 is designed to be extremely easy to use, with just two buttons on the camera. A video button that when pressed will switch the camera on and start recording video (in airplane mode), and a photo button that will switch the camera on and take a photo (also in airplane mode). The camera has a switch in the battery / memory compartment to switch airplane mode on and off. When airplane mode is switched off, the camera will wait for a smartphone connection before you can take photos with the camera.

In the box you get: The Nikon KeyMission 360, a silicon jacket, the standard lens protectors, two underwater lens protectors, a base adapter, two base mounts, a user manual, warranty card, USB cable, a lithium-ion battery and charging AC adapter. We go over what's in the box in this unboxing video. You can also find more images of the camera here.

Videos are recorded at a bitrate of 58Mbps, and a resolution of 3840x1920, at 23fps, with stereo sound (at 48kHz), and a 1-minute, 30-second video uses around 820MB.

Video samples:

Additional video samples can be found on the ePHOTOzine YouTube Channel.

Still photos are taken at a resolution of 7744 x 3872 (30MP) and are roughly 11-12MB in size.

I must confess, I don't see the point of a camera that includes the taker in the picture. Plus my GoPro Hero 3 takes far better underwater videos than that shown on this page.

I see little use outside the arty world for this camera.

Thanks for the sample videos and original jpegs Smile and answering my questions on youtube.

I think 360 cameras are best for creating even more immersive memories for yourself - Probably as a picture on itself it isn't very interesting - but if you capture them during your vacation I'm sure you will be transported right back to the place once you view it with a headset.

BTW: Would it be possible to share the raw video captured by the camera - as I wonder if youtube recompression is bad or just the camera - I've seen plenty of other 4Ks video on youtube with much more detail, so it shouldn't be a resolution problem.

Hi derfrankie,

I've taken a snapshot of a video and uploaded it to the sample photos.

Thanks for joining and commenting, I'll see if I can upload an original video.

@Joshwa - thanks a lot - this already helped a lot. I can see that the quality is good, but you really have to know how to compose to avoid having the most interesting parts of your scene right on the edges of the lens or in the stitching area.

I see plenty of example videos poping up on youtube and if you look at the "flat" video you can see that they where pointing at the wrong place - Smile I guess it's a skill like any creative process

And like you said in your review - it's the best value/price product around at the moment.
