Virtual Reality Cameras just got an update: Pano-S 8K 360 VR camera joins the lineup. Everyone these days is slowly becoming accustomed to the term ‘VR’.

Then, again to experience VR, there is a VR specific video, which is shot from a camera which is able to record in Virtual Reality. Now comes the all-new Pano-S 8K 360 VR camera in play.
