Kodak PixelPro initially had supply problems with the SP360 4K Action Cam, but those worries seem to be past. Reports now are that the cameras are proving to be a hit. I have not been able to get hands-on with a couple of units yet so I can’t testify to that. My request is in and if I do get them I will give all of you an in-depth report. in the meantime here is the press release describing the featires.
CES 2016 – LVCC Booth #14826, LAS VEGAS, NV – January 6, 2016
JK Imaging Ltd., the worldwide licensee for KODAK PIXPRO Digital Cameras and Devices, today announced the highly anticipated worldwide availability of the coveted new SP360 4K Action Cam. Poised to ride the perfect storm with the recent announcements of 360° interactive video support by YouTube™ and Facebook™, the KODAK PIXPRO SP360 4K Action Cam is ready to become one of the dominant cameras and most respected brands within the rapidly growing 360° VR video world.
The all new SP360 4K Action Cam was designed to give yet another option within the KODAK PIXPRO Digital Camera 2016 line as a step up model built for dedicated videographers and filmmakers.

The SP360 4K will be offered in assorted bundle packs that give multiple options to discerning content creators. The company’s decision was to forge a different path from traditional practices and stay focused on the customer’s needs first.
“The ultimate goal in bringing the SP360 4K to market was to provide an entirely different user experience from the norm,” said Paul Meyhoefer, Vice President of JK Imaging Ltd. “Our approach was simple, to provide the best engineering possible, starting with the camera’s unique, single 360° half sphere curved lens. This idea carried all the way through the packaging, when we made the choice to allow consumers to make a single purchase that includes intuitive editing software and mount accessories that support the rapidly growing 360° community and format.”

One of the biggest selling features of the new KODAK PIXPRO SP360 4K and current SP360 1080p models, is the compatibility with YouTube™ and Facebook™ 360° video platforms. This allows content creators to seamlessly transcribe their 360° VR videos and share their content with billions of people Worldwide.

Both the SP360 4K and SP360 Action Cams offer an incredible value, not only in the accessories included with the packs, but also includes complementary PIXPRO Desktop Editing Software and innovative PIXPRO Stitch Software (for Mac™ and PCs), that allow owners to take their back to back mounted camera footage and easily stitch the two together.
