Many companies claim to have created the first ever “professional” virtual reality camera, but the OZO is arguably the first one you can actually buy. Though Nokia has little history in the camera industry, they have made a good first impression with this rig. It sports 8, strategically placed, 2K cameras and microphones throughout to create seamless, stereographic, spherical visual and audio fields. Its integrated power and memory modules are even more impressive, giving you 45 minutes of shooting and outputting one, completely integrated file. This is also the first professional camera to offer live VR preview, an indispensable tool for any director. It may be expensive, but the OZO will be an integral part of the evolution of virtual reality.
