Canon 6D Mark II and Rebel SL2 DSLRs Announced

Saturday, July 1st, 2017

The second design is what Nikon calls the “multi ball”, which is a camera that is spherical in shape, which seems to be used for 360 panoramic photography.  Nikon describes it, “multi-views that can capture the atmosphere of a scene.”  It will be interesting to see if these particular cameras hit the market some day.
