Samsung recently debuted a stand-alone camera that is ideal for shooting VR video. With the rising popularity of VR technology, there is a growing demand for products that can help consumers create their own VR content. This tiny camera features two advanced fisheye lenses to help users capture 360-degree images and videos.

The Gear 360 is a small stand-alone camera that is equipped with two fisheye lenses. Each of these lenses have a 195-degree field of view, which allows consumers to capture 360-degree photos and videos. With the accompanying app, users can upload their images and videos directly to YouTube or Facebook -- both of which support 360-degree content. When shooting VR videos, users simply import their data to Gear VR, which allows them to create their own content for VR devices.

The 360-degree camera demonstrates a growing consumer demand for tools that facilitate VR content creation.
