With Omni, GoPro is targeting a much larger customer pool than with its other pro-grade gear, such as the 16-cam Odyssey rig. Certainly, with a price tag of $5,400 (€4,785), the GoPro Omni is not exactly the kind of toy you'd decide to buy every day, but once you've brought this baby home, a whole new world of possibilities awaits.

Indeed, for the casual rider, the GoPro Omni might be overkill, to say the least. However, since there's more than casual riders out there, we just know that Omni will find its fair share of adepts.

If you're looking for a camera to record the reckless driver cutting you off, then there's obviously no need for such a pro-class array in your life. On the other hand, if you feel like your creativity could benefit from being able to shoot 8K pixel-synchronized 360-degree video, maybe you should start thinking about this piece of technology.

With the GoPro Omni, you're in for 360 video at 8K spherical resolution (7,940 x 3,970) at 30 fps second or 1440p (5,638 x 2,819) at 60 fps. The Kolor stitching software optimized for GoPro sports killer features, such as Autopano Video Pro and Autopano Giga, for fine-tuning the results to perfection.

It goes without saying that the GoPro Omni is not a bike-only thing. There are virtually unlimited applications for such a solution, and motorcycling is only one of them. This means that, with a bit of imagination, you could start making money in other fields as well, while still being able to record the nicest rides in an insanely cool way.

Now, for the money, customers will be getting everything they need to get started right away, as the GoPro Omni package is a truly hefty one, ready for action.
