Nokia's OZO camera will fetch a cool $60,000 USD

Earlier this year, we reported that Nokia Technologies had unveiled the OZO camera; a device able to take images and video in 360 degrees, thanks to a plethora of built-in cameras and microphones.
Today, Nokia has proceeded to open pre-orders for the OZO camera, which will set back consumers the tidy sum of $60,000 USD.
As we stated earlier this year, the OZO camera isn’t destined for the average consumer – instead, the device is aimed at professional filmmakers and studios interested in producing content for virtual reality (VR) films.
Further, Nokia has unveiled the final specifications of the device; the OZO camera will produce 3D stereoscopic video through eight synchronised global shutter sensors and spatial audio recorded through eight integrated microphones. This means that content recorded through the OZO camera will closely mimic human perception achieved through both our eyes and ears.
The OZO camera will allow filmmakers or cameramen to monitor what they record in real-time through an accompanying head-mounted display.
The camera will be able to shoot at 30 frames per second, and will run on a rechargeable Lithium Ion battery. The OZO camera will further be able to record up to 45 minutes of footage at  time, thanks to a built-in 500GB solid state drive.
Nokia’s hope with the OZO camera is that Hollywood executives and influencers will take an interest in the device’s ability to easily produce content for virtual reality films or set pieces; meaning that users who own devices such as the Oculus Rift or upcoming PlayStation VR might soon have a great deal more content to explore.
