Share your mission: Nikon SnapBridge 360/170
This changes everything. It has never been easier to share unique 360-degree images that truly immerse viewers in your story. The KeyMission 360 is Bluetooth6 enabled, and compatible with Nikon’s SnapBridge 360/170 app for smart devices as well as the KeyMission 360/170 Utility7 for PCs. Utilising Bluetooth6 low energy technology, SnapBridge maintains a constant, low-power connection between the camera and your smartphone or tablet. Connecting the camera to your smart device is an easy, one-time operation. Once it’s done, stills can be transferred automatically from the camera to your device. You can also stream 360 degree live view through your smartphone or tablet screen, before you begin to record.
Revolutionary storytelling: 360 degree view with extraordinary image quality
The KeyMission 360 is a compact, mountable action camera that gives you the power to shoot spherical 360 degree 4K/UHD1 video and high-resolution stills. You can bring your missions to life and immortalise your experiences from sensational perspectives. The camera boasts two NIKKOR 1.6 mm f/2.0 lenses, each with a 180-degree angle of view, and two powerful RGB CMOS sensors. The images captured through each lens are automatically stitched together in-camera, creating one spherical 360 degree video or 23.9 MP still. Simply hit the record or shutter-release button and you get the full, vibrant beauty of your surroundings in unprecedented, immersive detail, with no blind spots. The camera’s true 360 degree imaging captures everything the eye can see, plus details you might have missed during recording, and which you can choose to focus on during playback: the light on the buildings behind you, the look of joy on every face in the festival crowd, the eagle that briefly joined your skydiving team.
4K/UHD video: ultra-high-definition 360 degree footage
The KeyMission 360 shoots incredible 4K/UHD1 video at 24 fps. Experienced through the camera's immersive playback options, your footage will pop with the emotion of real-life adventure. Full resolution (23.9 MP) stills can be captured whilst filming, and a range of versatile movie functions let you quickly enhance video footage. Create immersive 360 degree travelogues using the Superlapse movie function, which enables a central subject to be placed in quickly changing scenes and settings. Use the Loop Recording function to record multiple spherical videos for preset periods of time. Create a 360 degree time-lapse of the night sky, the base camp set-up, or the aftermath of a rally.
Rugged build: waterproof, shockproof, freezeproof, dustproof
When your quest takes you off the beaten path, the KeyMission 360 is just as tough as you need it to be. Designed to stand up to challenging conditions, this camera can shoot immersive video of underwater explorations as deep as 30 m without a separate housing. The shockproof, dustproof body can tolerate drops from heights of up to 2 m, so you can easily document every angle of a demanding trek through rocky terrain to a remote village. You can even rely on the camera to perform when shooting in temperatures as low as -10.5 degrees Celsius. Wherever your mission takes you, from the upper slopes of a mountain to the world beneath the waves, the KeyMission 360 will record every detail.
360 degree viewing: immersive playback
Relive your experiences like never before. The entire 360 degree spherical image is composed and processed inside the camera, and you can play back footage via your smart device. As you move the phone or tablet, it seamlessly reveals the whole environment: just as though you were looking at it in real life. Nikon’s supplied Cardboard Headset AA-17 heightens this virtual reality effect by cutting out external stimuli. You can control what you see by simply moving your head. Playback is also possible via your computer or laptop, as well as on Facebook or through YouTube’s 360 degree video channel. Nikon’s SnapBridge 360/170 app lets you share 360 degree videos direct from your smart device. The app’s built-in electronic Vibration Reduction (VR) uses shooting information about horizontal, vertical, and rotational camera movements to compensate for camera shake. The result—every epic 360 degree video you view will be sharp and steady.
Different mounts for different missions
Keep your hands free and your camera protected wherever your mission takes you with Nikon’s dedicated mounts, rods, and accessories. From the most compelling natural environments on earth to the jostle of a festival crowd, almost no situation is too extreme. Accessory mounts for the KeyMission 360 securely attach the camera to helmets, wrist straps, and even vehicles. Use the Vented Helmet Strap Mount AA-5 to get a rider’s-eye view of the downhill run, or a climber’s perspective on the summit. Get inside the barrel of the wave with the Surfboard Mount AA-9. Give your viewers the definitive festival experience with the Handy Grip MP-AA1. Wherever you go, the supplied, interchangeable, and rechargeable EN-EL12 Li-ion battery will keep you shooting for extended periods of time.
Take action: small, light, easy to control
Incredibly compact and easy to control, the KeyMission 360 is almost unnoticeable when you’re in the heat of the action.

I don't find it to be nearly as bad as others have made out; the app fersure is definitely a usability disaster, but after persistence and getting to know how it works - and more importantly, understanding the settings properly to get it to work for your own use case - it's tolerable, and you overcome the annoying aspects of it. It is annoying the way the app keeps losing its connexion to the camera, though I found the Ricoh also loses its connexion, and is only slightly less annoying to reconnect.
Image transfer to the phone is very slow - but that's unsurprising given a 20MP image is a larger file, and I'd say don't even bother transferring video files. If you're doing a photo walk I'd suggest not automatically transferring the image after each shot, rather leave them on the camera until you're done and then transfer later.
Video quality is clearly a step above the Ricoh, especially when viewed on YouTube; I'd say the Ricoh video quality is only really proof of concept, whilst with this you can get a reasonable level of detail. At the end of the day, any 4K single camera unit is only going to give you the same resolution, if you want higher resolution the only option is the step up to an array of six GoPros (or knock-offs) and having the faff of syncing and stitching, and even then what I've seen of that format the extra quality isn't worth the extra faff and expense. I've seen comparison shots with the Kodak version - the Kodak being unarguably better, but you have to remember the Kodak costs twice as much because you have to buy two of them - and then stitch.
Taking a shot as part of powering on is mildly irritating - and it's too easy to accidentally turn it on bouncing around in your bag - but you have to remember the market for this is as an action camera, when it's usually clamped to a helmet.
The big plus point for me is interchangeable media and interchangeable batteries (which you can get dirt cheap on Amazon), meaning you can go out and get a lot of footage without having to stop and transfer or recharge.
Looking at the other main camera in this price point, the Fly360, you have to remember the Fly isn't a true 360 camera, you get quite a large hole in the bottom, which would definitely spoil the VR experience even if your subject doesn't have anything interesting below it. There's something soon by Yi which rumours have it might be quite good for a bit cheaper. And now there are quite a few dirt cheap 360 cameras coming into the market - if you want to do some experimentation, get one of those, if you want to do some serious work, get one of these.
The image and video quality might be acceptable in daylight, but while other cams like the Ricoh Theta allow for longer exposures in poor lighting and HDR features or manual exposure setting the KM360 doesn't do the former and does the latter poorly and the result is a smeary looking blur. So many thousands of pixels, and none of them in focus. Part of me wanted this cam for a snowboarding holiday so perhaps I'd be okay in daylight... but taking those few pictures was a bit of a pain too:
There's an NFC on the side which should allow quick Bluetooth connection.. but you cant put your phone near enough to pick it up because its recessed into the body (sure, the recesses make the cam stronger, but means the nfc doesn't work). Once the camera is paired for the first time it seems not to want to reconnect to the app, you have to delete and search every time.. once connected you take a picture. Oh, sorry, no you don't, you have to connect it to your phones wifi first.. why did we bother with the bluetooth? probably someone at some stage did this to save battery life, but the faff of this all makes it less suitable for action sports (I could press the button to start recording but I'd need a friend to check for snow on the lens).
The only thing that would make this camera more of a disappointment would be if it made a RyanAiresque self-congratulatory fanfare when you switched it on, of hang on, it does that. And there's no way to turn that off either.
It's tough, it's waterproof, it has replaceable lens covers, it comes with mounts and padding. all these things are great but the app and the low light picture quality, and lack of flexibility really let this down.
