San Mateo-based GoPro is about to roll out two new products including a six-camera system for shooting 360-degree video and a quadcopter drone for airborne shots.
The announcement was made by GoPro CEO Nick Woodman on the stage of Re/code’s Code Conference. Woodman said the 360 camera will ship in the second half of 2015 for $3000.
The six cameras in the 360 device are all detachable, but when used together, the result can be stitched using Kolor, a virtual reality software acquired by GoPro last year.
The ability to shoot 360 video will be increasingly important as devices like the Oculus Rift become popular, according to industry experts.
Woodman said GoPro will ship a quadcopter in the first half of 2016.
