Livestreaming has made events like stadium-­scale games or NASA rocket launches more accessible to people around the world. But the 360-­degree cameras currently used still struggle with limited resolution. The Obsidian Pro is the first panoramic video camera to shoot in 12K, as well as the first with electronically adjustable aperture and focal length. With eight spider-­like lenses combining to deliver immersive VR-ready footage, the professional-­grade Obsidian Pro is quickly becoming the new standard for filming or livestreaming every angle of global events.
