VR pros and enthusiasts, rejoice: the 17-lens Samsung 360 Round camera is ‘only’ $10,500  #vr

  • Just like all those ultra-affordable Gear VR headsets foreshadowed Samsung’s recent announcement of a costlier, more powerful Odyssey mixed reality head-mounted display, the 2016 low-end Gear 360 and its slightly better sequel earlier this year were basically a preamble for the professional-grade 360 Round.
  • The monster new 360-degree rig is designed for VR “specialists and enthusiasts who demand a superior virtual reality experience.”
  • Combining no less than 17 high-quality lenses, the Samsung 360 Round can both record and livestream immersive 4K video (3D or 2D) at 30fps per eye, as well as spatial audio with a total of 6 internal microphones, not to mention included ports for an extra 2 external mics.
  • But it’s a lot less than what Nokia originally charged for the now-defunct OZO VR camera.
  • The Samsung 360 Round is more “affordable” than a YI Halo as well, also boasting the lack of a noisy fan and a resulting lightweight design.

If you’re a little more serious about your VR content creation than what the Gear 360 can handle, check out the professional-grade Samsung 360 Round.
