GoPro kind of stole the action camera show yesterday by finally revealing the Hero5 Black and the mighty Karma Drone. But it wouldn’t be fair to ignore another big piece of news: Nikon just came into the competition with action camera range.

They KeyMission cameras come in three flavors: 360, 170, and 80. Each number indicates the field of view of the camera, and its place in the KeyMission “hierarchy.” Let’s take a look at them one at a time.

Nikon KeyMission 360

Back in January, Nikon announced its KeyMission 360 camera but no detailed information was out then.

Nikon KeyMission 170

Taking some design cues from GoPro, the KeyMission 170 captures 170-degree wide angle 4k/30p ultra-HD footage or up to 1080/60p or 720/240p for smooth slow motion. Additionally, there’s a variety of shooting modes, including Add Slow Motion, Movie + Photo, Superlapse Movie, Loop Recording and Time-lapse Movie to name a few.

Nikon says the 170 is waterproof to 10m/33ft and shockproof from 2m/6.6ft with no housing required. There is however a waterproof housing available that will keep the camera dry at depths of 40m/131ft.

Claimed to weigh 135g, Nikon says the KeyMission 170’s battery will last 110min of video shooting or 250 still images.
