VR tech and video cameras have been playing a bit of a back-and-forth game for the past few years. VR ups the bar with what they’re able to provide, and then camera companies push it even further with new releases like the Samsung 360 Round.
Built specifically for live streaming 360-degree VR and 3D footage, this behemoth of a camera boasts 17 different lenses and eight stereo pairs for capturing every angle. Each f/1.8 lens has a 2MP sensor and the ability to livestream or record at 30fps per camera. Unsurprisingly, that means that the camera has to store a lot of data. That’s why Samsung equipped it with 10 GB or RAM and 40GB of internal memory with the option for a 2TB SSD card. And to make sure it can record in a variety of outdoor scenarios, the 360 Round also features an IP651 water and dust resistance. These are expected to go on sale at some point during the next month.
