KODAK PIXPRO ORBIT360 4K VR Camera debuts at CES
JK Imaging Ltd., the worldwide licensee for KODAK PIXPRO Digital Cameras and Devices, announces its 2017 line-up, including its new VR camera
The Consumer Electronics Show, or CES, is being held this week, and TNM has been getting hammered with press releases for products that have absolutely no relevance to publishers. But this one seems about right as many publishers are getting into VR.
The camera has the Kodak name on it, but through a global licensing agreement with Kodak, JK Imaging is the manufacturer.
The camera can be pre-ordered at $499.99 (I hate when they do that), and comes with dual 20 MP CMOS sensors, and two xed focus lenses housed in the camera body. It also supports Micro SD Cards up to 128GB.

Here is the announcement:
