The market for virtual reality is so hot right now that someone might very well consider dropping at least $2,500 on the GoPro Omni. It is the latest VR rig from the leading action camera brand that is much more affordable than its predecessor -- the Odyssey, which comes with a whopping 16 Hero4 Black cameras plus all the necessary accessories.

The GoPro Omni, on the other hand, is only outfitted with six cameras that will work together to create a single 360-degree video. Debuting at NAB, a major video production trade show, the GoPro Omni could drive the production of 360-degree video to a much higher level. Although there are cheaper cameras already out there, GoPro's quality will be unrivalled -- at least for now -- leading to better growth.
