Nikon's KeyMission 170 is designed to go up against traditional action cameras.

If a $400 360-degree action cam isn't your style, Nikon's also rolling out the aptly-named KeyMission 170 has a single, 170-degree lens for a more traditional, GoPro-esque style. Featuring a 12-megapixel sensor, 1080/120p slow-mo, all wrapped up in a tough-looking metal housing. This action cam will go on sale for $399.95 and it's compatible with the KeyMission 360/170 app that Nikon will release soon.

The KeyMission 80 is aimed at more casual users, and is supposed to be clipped to a bag strap or jacket.

If both of these are overkill for your needs, Nikon's also going to be rolling out a lifelogging-style camera called the KeyMission 80. Featuring two lenses, this camera is designed to be worn, and it turns on after being unclipped from your clothes. The main 12-megapixel, 80-degree angle lens is augmented with a 5 megapixel 90-degree unit mounted on the back for impromptu selfies. This unique moel will be $279.95 when it hits the streets.
