The Insta360 Pro Spherical VR 360 8K Camera captures 360 degree 3D video and images. Looking for an updated version? We also rent the Insta360 Pro 2 Spherical VR 360 8K Camera. Key features include:
360 Degree 3D Video Recording. The Insta360 Pro Spherical VR 360 8K Camera is a compact, 6 lens device that captures 360 degree 3D video at up to 6K 30fps. Non-3D 360° footage can be recorded at up to 8K 30fps. The primary drawback with all-in-one 360° camera systems is resolution, and The Insta360 can capture non-3D footage at up to 8K. This is 4 times the resolution of 4K and provides an adequately sharp image when viewed in 360 degrees.
Live Stream 360° 3D 4K Video. The camera is capable of livestreaming 4K 360 video to compatible streaming services like YouTube and Facebook Live. 4K x 4K 360 3D streaming is possible with the unit, but currently there aren’t any great options for getting that into the eyes of viewers. The feature does allow you to locally stream a live preview to compatible VR headsets. The Insta360 can be connected to the internet via wi-fi or ethernet, but ethernet is always advised for bitrates required for streaming 4K video. Setting up a stream and swapping between the various modes is kept simple with well designed Mac, PC, Android, and iOS applications. Need 3D audio? We recommend the Sennheiser Ambeo Premium Ambisonic Kit.
Records To SD Memory Or USB Drives. All video and photos can be stored onto common SD memory cards, and if even more storage is needed, a USB hard drive can be plugged into the camera. Multiple formatting option are available for photos and video from pre-stitched JPG and MP4 files to RAW photos and untouched video captures from each of the 6 lenses.
Live Stitching, Image Stabilization, & On-Board Mics. The unit’s internal processor is capable of real-time video stitching of 4K video, and the Insta 360 has some amount of image stabilization. With its current firmware, the image stabilization leaves a bit to be desired, and we wouldn’t recommend relying heavily upon it. Same goes with the four on-board microphones. With so much packed into one small sphere, the fans work hard to keep everything cool. Fan noise is audible in every circumstance, so we recommend capturing critical audio externally or using the 1/8" input jack to get your mic further away from fan noise.
75 Minute Battery Life. The camera can be powered for up to 75 minutes with its swappable Insta360 PT854291-2S Pro Battery Pack. If power runs low and you need to keep shooting, the included AC adapter can power and charge the internal battery simultaneously. We also rent a Charging Station to charge spare batteries apart from the camera.
