GoPro Fusion Preview: This video shows the 360 camera’s true potential

GoPro may have launched the HERO6 action camera this week, but it's the Fusion camera which has me really intrigued. It promises 360-degree video and photo capture like other VR cameras we've seen, but justifies its $699 price tag with OverCapture, GoPro's big new software feature.

Sony’s RX0 has DJI in its sights as well as GoPro

The action camera space might seem crowded right now, not to mention commoditized, but Sony believes it has something sufficiently different.

Now, Olympus says, it has taken the user feedback onboard and addressed it with the Mark III - not to mention adding features like 4K video capture.
