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.

CONTROLLING VIA THE MOBILE APP
I can confirm the problems other reviewers have mentioned with connecting the camera to a smartphone, and I hope Nikon will fix these issues in a future upgrade of the app or the camera's firmware. I'm using the Android version of the app and it does connect, but the main problem is that it takes quite a long time to do it, so you'll have to wait for it every time you stop to take a shot, which gets pretty annoying.
I don't bother with the app any more, but I've also realized that you don't really need it because there is nothing to frame with a 360 camera that would actually require a viewfinder or a live feed of the camera's image transmitted to your phone. It's worth making sure you have the horizon fairly straight, but otherwise, you don't need to be able to see what you're shooting in the way you do when taking a traditional photograph.
The biggest problem I had was that after pairing with one device, I couldn't then pair it with a different one even after unpairing it with the first. The only way I could get it to work was by resetting it to factory default settings. I did this with the KeyMission 360/170 Utility installed on my PC with the camera connected via USB.
The KeyMission 360 records video at up to 4K resolution, but you have to keep in mind that the 8.3 megapixels in each frame of this video have to cover the whole spherical field of view while you will only ever be able to see a relatively small crop of this spherical image at any given time when you view it back in a virtual reality headset or on Facebook or some other viewing environment that allows you to look around in different directions. This cropped view will be a small window of around 960 x 540 pixels (0.5 MP) that you move around on the full 4K image. That's not a very high resolution view, so if you are expecting more, you will definitely be disappointed. This isn't just a failing of the KeyMission 360 though but of all current consumer-grade spherical cameras on the market. 4K just isn't enough to get a crystal clear image of the whole sphere.
As you'd expect, still photographs can be shot at a much higher resolution (23.9 effective megapixels) than video. Here, you will be able to see about a 2 megapixel crop of the sphere from any particular viewing angle when viewing through a virtual reality headset, which isn't too bad.
Shooting outdoors with a 360 view means that you can be shooting towards the sun and away from the sun at the same time, which can lead to very large differences in brightness across the image. Nikon cameras are famously good at capturing very contrasty scenes, but this is about as difficult as it gets. You'll get better results if the camera is shaded from direct sunlight.
You will be in every shot you take with this camera unless you trigger it remotely or with a long enough self-timer. And if you're holding the camera, you will be very close and therefore very large in the shot, or your hand will be. One solution to this is to shoot with it attached to a monopod or selfie-stick so that you can hold the camera high above your head. You can trigger it with the self-timer.
The camera has to join the two halves of the image taken by each lens together, but if there are very nearby objects on either side of the camera, the join will tend to be visible. Make sure the sides are pointing towards distant objects for the best results.
The camera comes with lens adapters to use when shooting under water to make the lens surface flat instead of curved. These are needed to keep the underwater image in focus because the curvature of the normal lenses is only suitable for focusing light that moves from air to glass. Light doesn't bend by the same amount when moving from water to glass so everything would be thrown out of focus without the adapters. The problem with these adapters however is that they are visible in the final 360 image as black borders around two large portholes.
There are other ways of shooting spherical video and stills that produce higher quality results. For video, people create enormous rigs with multiple cameras on them to shoot in all directions at once. For stills, there are panorama heads you can mount a camera on that allow you to take a very precise sequence of shots to be stitched together with software. Both of these methods will produce higher resolution images, but the KeyMission 360 is very small and light weight so is easy to transport and to mount on things and it does the job without the need for any software processing, so although it's a compromise in terms of image quality, it's much easier to use.
WHAT'S THE POINT?
In traditional video, a large part of the art is about directing the viewers' eye to the details that are important to advance a story. It is much harder if not impossible to direct the viewer's attention with a 360 degree camera, so I don't think 360 video will ever take off as a storytelling medium. Nevertheless, I think these cameras have great potential for capturing immersive experiences where the effect isn't about telling a story but to soak up the atmosphere of an extraordinary place as if the viewer were really there.
If you understand the limitations of this camera and manage your expectations accordingly, it's actually a very impressive piece of technology that opens up a lot of new creative possibilities.
To make life easier, and to save a lot of time, I suggest using the camera without the app whenever possible. The other word or warning is battery life...it doesn't seem to have any.
Nice product, nice design, good quality but let down by an overly complex and unstable system to operate it.
The bad thinks: Image & video stitching problems, and very bad control software both on Android and Ios. It seems to me that all those are software problems that hopefully will be fixed in the future. Do not expect SLR quality photos from an action camera like this, focus mostly on video , and you will be happy.
