New 360° Underwater Camera, a Small Fortune

You might be familiar with those 360° view videos frequently used by real estate agents to give you virtual tours of properties. The VSN Mobil V360 HD Camera Kit sells for $449, but is only water-resistant to 3 feet deep. Some enterprising engineers have found a way to clamp together a cluster of POV cameras like the GoPro for a similar effect.

The Boxfish 360 is a professional-quality 360° underwater camera with large digital sensors. Its "eyes" are three large cameras that the company claims gives the sensor an area almost five times that of those six-action-camera rigs you might have seen. This results in sharper images shooting up to 5K ultra high-definition with better color rendition.

It has a 90-minute battery that takes only minutes change along with the camera's memory cards. The Boxfish 360 can also record data from the dive, such as the depth it recorded at. It's designed to work with the Boxfish ROV.

For around $15,000, they're yours. www.boxfishresearch.com
