Called GoPro Fusion 360, it is due to hit stores in November for $699 USD. The camera captures 5.2K spherical content at 30fps and 3K at 60fps. Users can also use it to take 18MP still photos. Fans who used to stitch multiple images taken with multiple cameras and using their Omni software to make 360-degree collages can now just use the Fusion 360.
