Nokia Has a New 360-Degree VR Camera for Filmmakers

Nokia Oyj unveiled a virtual-reality camera for professional filmmakers and content creators, seeking to profit from the wealth of intellectual property rights it built up during its years as a mobile-phone powerhouse.

The ball-shaped gadget has eight shutter sensors capturing 3D footage for the creation of content for devices such as virtual-reality headsets, Nokia said in a statement. The company introduced the camera at a Los Angeles event attended by representatives from major studios and production houses.
