Kodak have just revealed it’s new action camera that will go head-to-head with the GoPro series. The PIXPRO SP360 offers a 360-degree view of the action using a single dome shaped lens and films in full HD (1080p), recording at 30 fps with a 16-megapixel MO sensor. The dome lens means that it doesn’t require an array of cameras to be stitched together to produce the 360-degree view.

The camera offers 4 different modes to shoot in; Front (212 degrees), Split (180-degree front and rear views at the same time), Dome (214 degrees) and Sphere (360 degrees), providing alternative vantage points. It can also capture 10-megapixel still images too.

It’s WiFi capable to allow you to connect a remote device for viewing (including both iOS and Android) and also the ability to control from up to 65 feet away.  Of course, being an action camera it is splashproof, freezeproof, shockproof and dustproof. Prices start at $349 but if you want the waterproof case and bar and adhesive mounts you’re going to have to fork out another $50.

Other features include the ability to “automatically begin recording for those times you don’t want to have to control the action cam manually” and a built in Timelapse Mode that will let you “share the afternoon your friends missed in just minutes.”

They’ve also released a video showing the different recording modes in action as a team take it on a test during a sky-dive. Check it out below:
