You might remember during CES the KeyMission 360 was the big hit in the news from Nikon as strong competition for GoPro. Albeit this week GoPro stole the news headlines with their Karma Drone. The Nikon KeyMission since then has become a series of action cams with the 360 showcased during the original announcement, a 170 GoPro equivalent, and 80 wearable camera. As for the model numbers the names imply the degree of field of view the cameras can see. 

KeyMission 800-hero

Smaller than your average GoPro, the KeyMission 80 is a rugged wearable camera for the person on the go. The small clip-on camera can record 1080p video, shoot 12MP photos, and 5MP selfies with a rear facing camera. Using SnapBridge it can automatically upload to your phone via Bluetooth and WiFi on the go. At a compact size of 1.8” x 3.5” it’s a convenient option for those wanting to have a camera right there when needed. KeyMission 80 goes where the action is. It’s waterproof down to 3.4-feet, freezeproof to 14°F, and shockproof from drops up to 4.9-feet.

KeyMission 1700-hero-1

The main GoPro clone of this lineup, the KeyMission 170 is built for just that role and that’s about it honestly. Built with a F/2.8 8.3MP camera the KeyMission 170 is made for rugged 4K footage. It’s main highlight is Electronic Vibration Reduction for crystal clear video, bar while shooting at 4K.

The KeyMission 360 wants to be your all in one action camera with 23.9MP 360° stills , 4K video, 360° video, timelapses, and more.
