Seize the moment of meaningful adventures

 Nikon KeyMission Action Camera Series introduces two new action cameras with the new KeyMission 170 and KeyMission 80, alongside the KeyMission 360

SINGAPORE – Nikon Singapore Pte. Ltd. is pleased to announce the release of the series of KeyMission action and wearable cameras, designed to help users shape and share their missions, from the everyday to the extreme, and the stories behind them. Earlier this year, Nikon announced the KeyMission 360 – a tough, wearable action camera capable of recording true 360° video in 4K UHD. Today, Nikon unveils two more cameras in its action series, the KeyMission 170 and KeyMission 80.

With video increasingly becoming the centre of everyday communications, the KeyMission action cameras build on Nikon’s technical excellence in optical and image-processing technologies. The ability of the flagship KeyMission 360 to capture seamless 360° video in 4K UHD format changes the way people capture and share their experiences. 

The KeyMission 170, which is shockproof and waterproof, captures dynamic 170° wide-angle 4K UHD videos and vivid images. With intuitive interfaces and simple controls, even first-time action camera users can record adventures effortlessly. Versatile shooting modes like Add Slow Motion, Superlapse Movie and Time-lapse Movie are available for creating dramatic scenes for any adventure.

The ultra-slim KeyMission 80 is a tough wearable camera designed for quick shooting of stills and movies enabling users to record every moment of their experiences as it happens.  Featuring an exclusively designed small NIKKOR lens, this compact camera enables capture of the high quality images.  It is equipped with a second camera with 4.9 million effective pixels and a LCD monitor for easy selfies. 

SnapBridge 360/170 app is exclusive to KeyMission 360 and KeyMission 170, which enables camera remote shooting and movie editing, while KeyMission 80 supports the SnapBridge app. Both SnapBridge 360/170 app and SnapBridge app allow the camera to be constantly connected to a smart device, providing a convenient and automatic transfer of photos from the action camera to the smart device.

“The new KeyMission cameras present users a distinctive approach to the way adventures are retold and experienced, with its compelling combination of standout optical and imaging innovation, seamless smart device connectivity and an adventure-ready construction. The adventures that we embark on are each with a purpose and story to share as we challenge the status quo to inspire and shape the world we live in. Alongside today’s preferences and emphasis on immediacy and freshness of content, the KeyMission action cameras are ready to reimagine image and video creation from a user’s trove of stirring experiences,” said Atsushi Suzuki, General Manager of International Marketing Division Imaging Group, Nikon Singapore Pte. Ltd.

Simultaneously, Nikon has introduced a wide range of optional mounts and accessories made to push the limit of the cameras across diverse activities.  For hands-free shooting, Vented Helmet Strap Mount, Chest Mount and Surfboard Mount ensure every moment is captured. Handy Grip is also available to prevent the users’ body from being caught in the frame during handheld shooting.  These versatile mounts and accessories will take the cameras through the toughest roads and scale the highest peaks.

KeyMission 360 Primary Features

• Recording of realistic, 360° 4K UHD*1/24p movies*2 that capture the entire scene in both the horizontal and vertical directions

• Responds to extreme conditions with waterproof to 30 m*3, shockproof to 2.0 m*4, coldproof to −10° C*5, and dustproof*6

1 While the resolution of recorded data is 4K UHD (3840 × 2160), the resolution at which movies are displayed with playback is dependent upon factors such as the display device used and the display magnification ratio

2 There are parts of the shooting/recording range that cannot be captured underwater because images are magnified more than they are on land. Therefore, 360° content cannot be captured underwater. When the underwater lens protectors are attached, the protectors are reflected in images as black borders or bands. The camera may be unable to capture subjects positioned 60 cm (2 ft.) or closer to the top, bottom, or either side of the camera because the subjects are not included in the angle of view (i.e., the area visible in the frame). Under some shooting conditions, the boundaries of the composited areas may be misaligned

The camera can be used at depths of up to 30 m (100 ft) for up to 60 minutes with or without the use of the underwater lens protectors (AA-15A). When the lens protectors (AA-14A) are attached, it can be used at depths of approx. 20 m (65 ft).

4 In-house tests have demonstrated MIL-STD 810F Method 516.5 shock resistance. When the lens protectors or underwater lens protectors are attached
