GoPro's Fusion spherical camera can be used for VR and traditional video capture. GoPro today started taking applications from pro content creators who want to be part of the pilot program, which is expected to roll out this summer. It's hard to capture really high resolution spherical video, which is why we're only now starting to see companies like Facebook and GoPro introduce cameras with these capabilities.

"Whether filming for VR or traditional fixed-perspective content, Fusion represents the state-of-the-art in versatile spherical capture", he added.

That's because Fusion is capable at capturing photos at video at an impressive 5.2K resolution.

Much like 4K-resolution video can be used for digitally cropping in on a subject while still maintaining an HD-quality video, the Fusion will have a feature called OverCapture allowing you to capture HD-quality conventional video from the 5.2K-resolution spherical video. Woodman also told Engadget at CES earlier this year that he envisions a future where you can "record your activities with one multi-lensed GoPro" and create a matching 2D video for sharing with a phone app.

The Fusion will be compatible with the company's mounts and accessories, GoPro said.

This summer, GoPro will be working closely with a selection of pilot partners - including brands, agencies and content professionals - to further refine the user experience and produce inspiring content that demonstrates the creative potential of Fusion. A limited commercial release of Fusion isn't expected to happen until the end of 2017 and GoPro gave no details on pricing or other capabilities and specs.

GoPro is asking those interested in the pilot programme to visit its sign-up site to register their interest. What began as an idea to help athletes self-document themselves engaged in sport, GoPro has become a mobile storytelling solution that helps the world share itself through immersive content.
