The Ozo is a professional camera used for Virtual Reality has eight lenses in it which records complete spherical footage. There are eight microphones that also record and also recreate the sounds. Nokia has already tested the Ozo’s capabilities by capturing VR video of astronauts in an immersion pool base in NASA. The camera is all set to capture the aerial footage when connected to a drone.
