The 360cam’s resulting footage can be recorded at 2048p 2K and 4096p 4K. The content is stitched in-camera, meaning there’s no post-processing necessary.

Two models already have support for this feature, while three more are set to earn an update in the near future. This update brings Sony’s HDR to content that supports it – Amazon Video is one example. With this feature, users see a higher dynamic range of color, luminosity, brightness – for a more distinctive viewing experience. More detail, more color, more intensity.

In addition to the X930C and X940C models announced to be attaining HDR earlier this year, three more models will have the software necessary to execute HDR in the near future via a network update. The X850C, X900C, and X910C will have HDR abilities this Fall.
