The POV camera has evolved quite a lot within recent years, as evidenced by the sheer number of people using them to record their sporting firsts and fearsome triumphs. Recently, however, the POV market was gifted something new: a true 360-degree view camera, including the V.360° and 360Fly.

The V.360° high-definition camera takes all the work out of capturing your shot. How? It's a hands-free device and a single lens unit that fortuitously fits onto existing GoPro mounts and camera tripods. The camera boasts a high-quality 4k/16 megapixel imager and has a time-lapse function. Remote powered, it's easy to begin filming from the water or land, it can be activated by a smartphone or tablet.

For a quick peek at the V.360° POV camera's capabilities check out this video, packed with surfing, snowboarding, mountain biking, and more.
