Although Nokia did not collapse, but now its business don't have any relationship with us ordinary consumers. In 2015, Nokia launched a VR panoramic camera called Nokia OZO. The equipment cost up to $60000, because Nokia did not intend to enter ordinary consumer market, so OZO major clients are professional production companies.
May be because the price is too high, today Nokis said publicly that they will provide OZO panoramic camera rental service, and will cooperate with three third-party companies for rental business. The three companies mainly do business for VR development team, provide professional equipments and design scheme.
Nokia OZO rental services has two ways, respectively is: the monthly rental and weekly rental, at present, Nokia has not announced a specific lease price and fees.
Nokia OZO panoramic VR camera equipped with eight cameras and eight microphones, weight about 3 kg, can achieve 360 degrees shooting video and audio recordings, and at the same time it has built in 500 gb of storage space, can record 45 minutes.
OZO support the video fast review, can let users in a short time to obtain low resolution preview. For video production, this feature is very convenient, because usually VR material need synthesis before watch, and synthetic process are likely to spend hours.
In contrast, let's take a look at other brands of 360 degree panoramic camera.
GoPro launched an Odyssey panoramic camera, actually this thing is tied 16 GoPro together. Regardless of the results, think about every time when use, we must change the SD card. Oh, my god!
At the beginning of the year at CES, others put N digital SLR camera in a box, and then call it VR camera.
Compared the above two funny cases, Nikon KeyMission 360 is much small in size, but it has only two cameras in front and back and by means of wide Angle lens video makes pseudo 360 degrees.
Similar products like Kodak Pixpro SP 360, this stuff only has one camera. Can this product really be called a 360egree cam?
Look at rival products, Nokia must be thinking, hum, we have no rival!
