Samsung has released a new 360 camera for livestreaming 3D content for virtual reality content. The Samsung 360 Round. It has 17 lenses,eight stereo pairs positioned horizontally and one single lens positioned vertically, it does 4K 3D video and spatial audio, and creates engaging 3D images with depth and it’s water and dust resistant (IP65).

Seems like a very interesting camera now Nokia has killed the Ozo. The only thing scary is the $10.500 pricetag.

Another point to make is that acc. to specs it seems there is only software for Windows.
