GoPro's new Fusion comes on the heels of Facebook's Surround 360 cameras

In order to remain competitive, GoPro has branched out from its action camera roots and created new offerings like its Karma drone and now its new Fusion 360-degree camera.

While it is now only available to professionals that are accepted into the pilot program, you can see a sample clip of the camera in action above.

Saints Row 2 Goes Completely Free on GOG for a Limited Time
You better act fast if you want a free copy of Saints Row 2 , as the giveaway only lasts two days. This is the first DRM-free release for either game, and they're priced very well, too.

While most of the 360-degree spherical videos you see these days can't match the resolution of standard videos, the Fusion wants to change the game. (In fact, this is the first non-Hero camera GoPro has made.) Also, it's designed for capturing both VR and non-VR content. "Whether filming for VR or traditional fixed-perspective content, Fusion represents the state-of-the-art in versatile spherical capture".

Let us know what you think of the GoPro Fusion in the comments.

In simpler terms, users will be able to pull nonspherical, full HD photos or videos from captured 5.2K spherical videos on the Fusion camera during post-production.

Other details about the Fusion are scarce: there aren't photos showing what the camera looks from all sides, info on specs and features, or details on pricing. During the pilot, GoPro plans to work closely with select "brands, agencies and content professionals" to "further refine the user experience and produce inspiring content that demonstrates the creative potential of Fusion". The program is available to professional content creators and those interested in applying can go to the GoPro Fusion Webpage. But GoPro is also saying it likely won't get the Fusion into consumers' hands before the end of the year, so any optimism Wall Street has about the company's future may be short-lived...
