Insta360 has released new sample footage from its 8K-capable professional 360 camera, the Insta360 Pro. The new footage shows off the camera’s internal stabilization feature, its low-light performance and its live streaming capabilities.
The Insta360 Pro began shipping to pre-order customers last week. The camera is available on Insta360’s online store for $3,499.
Sample footage from the Insta360 Pro
A video of Tokyo’s Kabukicho district, shot in 8K (above), shows off the camera’s low-light image quality. Other low-light samples include a concert in Austin and a night club in 6K.
The other video, of a Segway ride through a park, shows the Insta360 Pro’s onboard image stabilization technology.
The live stream is from its office and is 4K resolution at 4 Mbps (due to limited bandwidth in its office) with non-optical flow stitching.
About the Insta360 Pro
The camera can capture 8K 360 video at 30 fps, 4K 360 video at 100 fps, and 6K stereoscopic 360 video at 30 fps. It also has a timelapse mode and 100 fps capture for 4K slow motion video.
The camera employs both real-time stitching and comes with its own stitching software for more stitching control, as well. It can be controlled and monitored via smartphone, tablet or desktop.
One side of the camera features ports for external power, a microphone jack and Ethernet port. The other side has USB-C, USB and HDMI inputs. The USB, in particular, allows users to use external hard drives to save footage (limiting recording time only to battery life).
