--------------------------------------------------------------------------

It would appear that you can change the FOV from 170 to 127 and 90 degrees, and GoPro claims this is NOT a digital zoom, as you get the full 11Mp quality at those FOV's. FOV's also available at full 1080p and 720p.
Thus, no longer require a lens change to get suitable AP results. (IMO)
Also note 10 full resolution photos in one second.
I am not affiliated with the company in any way, I simply thought I would pass on this info because of its potential relevence.

Cyas.
