Gear: Nikon Keymission 360

Capture your adventures from every direction in vivid 4K HD video. The 24-megapixel camera is shockproof, waterproof and freezeproof. Nikon

We've all seen those cool flying ­videos ­captured with a camera installed on the wing. But most only show the pilot's ­reactions to the outside world. Imagine if you could turn the camera view in any direction in flight and see what the pilot does. For just under $500, Nikon's ­KeyMission 360 can spin that wing camera around 360 ­degrees. It offers ultra-slow-motion and time-lapsed ­photography, employing Hollywood-like effects, so sky warriors — or scuba divers down to 100 feet — can create 360-degree videos in stunning 4K HD detail.

With both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi already standard, a pilot or diver needs only to bring along a smartphone to control the action. So experiment and explore, but you might want someone in the right seat of the airplane to manage the camera while you do the flying.

The 360’s dual lenses create a single 360-degree image. Nikon’s 360-degree video camera is small and light, measuring 2.5 inches square and weighing in at 7 ounces. Nokia
