We get all sorts of questions about the VR cameras we use to film our documentaries, and it's time we broke it down for y'all! The @GoPro Omni rig is our go-to camera; its small size and weight make it very convenient and easy to carry around. We usually bring two with us — yes, on every shoot! It's always better to be safe than sorry and have a back-up. To find out what we take with us on our video shoots read our blog post, 'Inside Our Equipment Kit.' Link in bio! .

Google, for example, has been offering its low-cost Google Cardboard kits, which, coupled with the Google Expeditions service, provides VR-based educational experiences and learning activities.

according to market research firm ABI Research, some 6 million consumer and prosumer cameras are expected to ship by 2021. (That’s out of a total of 70 million VR devices that are forecast to ship by then.)
