Nikon just announced the D5, a brand new 4K DSLR flagship camera. But the bigger surprise might be the KeyMission 360, which is the company's first ever action camera — and it shoots 360-degree video in 4K. It's the first action camera in what Nikon is calling a new "family" of action cameras, and likely will be the only one that shoots 360-degree video.

I like the look of this. I have a Ricoh Theta, which is a small 360/180 degree camera. The quality is a bit too “mobile phone” to make it any more than good for casual use. It’s certainly far less cumbersome than a tripod/bracket/NEX 5N + fisheye lens that I use for more serous shots. There are other limitations - it doesn’t, for example, use BlueTooth - it uses WiFi which rules out using, say, a selfie stick with a BT trigger on it.

What I’m expecting from the Nikon is far superior image quality, and some bells and whistles which will make it more that a novelty - a proper VR camera that will negate the need for brackets, multiple shots in most situations.
