The Vuze XR has been designed to make shooting 360-degree and 180-degree photos and videos as easy as possible, with a chunky and appealing design, and simple operation. The key selling point is that you can switch between 360-degree (2D) and 180-degree (3D) modes with a single button push.

That flexibility to shoot either an entire sphere or half a sphere of VR footage is something that compact devices are only just being able to do – see also the Insta360 Evo – and it means the Vuze XR is already a few points up some of the best 360 cameras. It's also capable of in-camera stitching and live broadcasting, and Vuze provides free desktop software for editing your creations, which you'll probably need.
