Kodak debuts new 360-degree camera

But it won't be out until next year

With Photokina happening in Cologne, Germany, there's been a flood of 360-degree camera news. First it was the GoPro Hero 5 Black and then Nikon's new lineup of action cams. Now Kodak is throwing its hat into the ring with the Kodak Pixpro 4KVR360.

Unlike the last Pixpro SP3604K action camera, the 4KVR360 can actually shoot with two 20MP lenses on the front and back, meaning you get 360-degree shots without spending money on a second device.

Similar to its competition, the new Pixpro can connect to your mobile device via Wi-Fi, Bluetooth (to an optional remote control) and through NFC. You can record up to 128GB of footage on a microSD card where in-camera stitching clocks in at 15fps.

According to Pocket-lint, the device on show wasn't quite a finished model. Rather it was displayed to show off what you can expect when the Kodak 4KVR360 ships sometime in early 2017.

A price tag hasn't been attached yet, but you can expect it to fall somewhere in line with Nikon KeyMission 360's $500 and Samsung Gear 360's $350.
