Rumors: Foxeer is preparing to release Legend 3 and GoPro Session type cameras

Foxeer is going to release their variant of Session cubic type camera. No official release date nor any official details. We have only a sketch picture of the outlook of this camera:

We see, that cubic camera will be based on Ambarella A12 chip + SonyIMX 117 sensor + Aspheric lens. No information on FOV size. But it is going to be a real 4K camera (Runcam 3 action camera will be 1080x60fps only). Also will have a SuperView capability.  Looks like we have a real GoPro competitor.

And the new Foxeer Legend 3 is not far away. It will have the same Legend form factor, but this time it is going to be 4K camera. Here is picture of Legend 3:

EDIT(2017-02-21): There is some footage on official Foxeer Youtube channel, that turns out to be filmed with Foxeer Legend 3

So the size is different than GoPro Session size (33 x 33 x 31.3 mm) and GoPro type camera accessories will be incompatible . That is a bit dissapointing. The Foxeer Box 4k is IP64 rated, so it can not worry about flying in the tropical rain 🙂

Look at the 1080p 120fps slow motion video:
