Nikon a well know brand in the camera segment has launched new KeyMission line of shooters, marking its entry into the 360-degree and action camera business. Name of Nikon in camera segment is always on the brighter side but its KeyMission line will face some challenges. This is expected because of the crowded market, where the established players like GoPro has faced the challenges.

The KeyMission 360 (US$499.95, pictured above) can corral 360-degree video in 4K UHD at 24p, as well as in the more traditional HD 1080p. It also shoots 30-megapixel stills.

The unit has two f/2.0 lenses, each with a 20-megapixel CMOS sensor. The dual units eliminate a bane of 360-degree cameras: blind spots.

Other features include automatic in-camera stitching; shooting modes like Superlapse, Time-Lapse, and Loop; a built-in stereo microphone; and Electronic Vibration Reduction, for taking the shake out of video after it's been shot.

The KeyMission 170 ($399) has a 170-degree superwide angle f/2.8 lens with an 8.3MP CMOS sensor for capturing 4K UHD or 1080p HD video.

The unit supports highlight tagging, which makes it easier to create montages of adventures; a remote control for starting, stopping and adding tags to video; and a rear LCD for framing shots, playing back video, and changing the camera's settings.

Point-and-Shoot Toughie

The KeyMission 80 ($279.95) is a rugged point-and-shoot camera that has a 25mm f/2.0 lens with an 80-degree angle of view and 12MP sensor.

It also has a 5MP front-facing camera with a 22mm f/2.2 lens for shooting selfies, and support for time-lapse recording and interval timer shooting.

All the KeyMission cameras are ruggedized and don't need a protective housing, as do some other action-cams.

The KeyMission 360 is waterproof to 98 feet, shockproof from 6.6 feet, and freezeproof to 14 degrees Fahrenheit.

The 170 is waterproof to 33 feet, shockproof from 6.6 feet, and freezeproof to 14 degrees F.

The 80 is waterproof to 3.2 feet, shockproof from 6.0 feet and freezeproof to 14 degrees F.

For the 360 and 170 models, Nikon also offers SnapBridge, a smartphone app for accessing the camera settings, plus software for advanced editing on a PC or Mac.
