Kodak’s foray into 360-degree photography could begin in August, when its Orbit360 camera is rumoured to be released.

360 Rumors reports that its sources are saying the Kodak Orbit360 release date will be 1 August 2017.

The Orbit360, also known as the 4KVR360, is Kodak PIXPRO’s all-in-one 360 camera, originally announced as a development project at Photokina last year.

The Kodak PIXPRO Orbit360 / 4KVR360 will feature a 20-megapixel CMOS image sensor and employ a MicroSD card (up to 128GB).

The Kodak Orbit360 / 4KVR360 will also offer built-in Wi-Fi and NFC technology, as well as Bluetooth compatibility in an optional remote control device that can be worn to control the camera remotely.

The Orbit360 / 4KVR360 also boasts asymmetrical lenses: a 235-degree lens and a second, smaller lens with a narrower field of view, which you can use to shoot non-360 with a 197-degree field of view.
