VR 180 videos and cameras

I just got an oculus quest 2 a few days ago. I was blow away after seeing some vr 180 videos on YouTube And went online to see if I can purchase a stereoscopic 180 degree camera to make vr180 home videos. after looking online extensively i was surprised to see that every consumer level 180 vr camera was discontinued. The ones that kept popping up were the Lenovo mirage, vuze xr and Insta 360 duo. The only one that can still be purchased is the lenovo mirage which was the lowest quality of all of these. Seems like the only way to take these vr 180 videos now is by buying a stereoscopic lens for a dslr for around 3k or making your own rig with two wide angle cameras then creating the vr180 video in an editing program. This seems like too much of a hassle. Does anyone have any info on this and if there’s any product or way of easily making these videos. I did find one of these cameras online used and I’m considering buying it. But I’m wondering if I do will the files it creates be supported on the oculus quest 2 and if so how to I download them onto my device. Seems like these products got discontinued before the quest 2 even came out.

Please let me know if you know anything about this or if you have one of these products and would be willing to sell it to me.

After researching some more I found that they sell a 360 degree 3D Camera. Which is very different than a normal 360 camera. It has 4 pairs of 2 stereoscopic lenses instead of just two wide angle lenses facing opposite directions. Maybe this is why they stopped making the 180 degree vr cameras since this seems to do this and more. The one I’m looking at is the vuze 3D 360 camera. Does anyone own one of these? Wondering if I buy one will it give me the option to take a 180 degree 3D video or will I have to convert it in some kind of editing software? If it does take 3d 180 videos how do they compare to the ones taken on the vuze xr? Is there another camera like this that anyone would recommend? Please let me know thanks.
