Ozo camera is also set to capture aerial footage when mounted to a drone.
The spherical camera is designed for making 3D movies and games that can be watched and played with virtual reality headsets. Nokia has partnered with Deluxe to provide a high quality post production services for one Ozo VR content which includes editorial, color and stitching. With the new price, the ozo virtual reality camera is going to be a huge hit in the market, since first time a dedicated camera has been developed.
Nokia which was once a dominant phone business that has been sold to Microsoft in 2014 is back in a big way. The company is also now planning its expansion in to china with a partnership with LeVR. Chinese customer can order Ozo from September and expects its shipment by October.
