Ozo Camera: Nokia invents an eight headed Hal-9000 like device for capturing virtual reality scenes in high resolution.
Nokia is venturing into virtual reality capture technology with it’s new ‘Ozo’ camera. Ozo contains eight synchronized cameras each at 2K by 2K resolution which are combined to give 360°×180° raw video with 10 stops of dynamic range! It also captures immersive 360° audio. See their video overview below.
Although 10 stops range is adequate for most scenarios I imagine it won’t be realistic enough for directly-lit scenes on very clear sunny days where the contrast range is huge. Color grading sessions wearing a color calibrated VR headset could be fun but I imagine the footage could be pretty heavy from this device!
