LIVE STREAMS

CNN: Insta360 Pro
CNN live streamed the eclipse from 7 locations across the continental United States.  For their live stream, CNN chose the Insta360 Pro (reviewed here), which can live stream in 4K (2D or 3D; here’s a tutorial), and has the option to simultaneously record the live stream as a stitched 360 video, or as individual videos from each lens, for subsequent re-stitching via desktop (on Insta360 Stitcher or any third party software).

Here is a recorded version of CNN’s live stream:

  • the funniest question i saw on one manufactures facebook group was this…

    is it safe to use my …. 360 camera during the Eclipse? and the manufacturer didn’t laugh at them and actually answered their question, and even mentioned something about we don’t have any filters etc..

    I’m like, err your shooting outdoors in the sun every OTHER DAY, why would you think this would be any different TODAY with your 360 camera you idiot?,,, so lucky I don’t work in the online reply guy for one of these manufacturers lolz.. I wouldn’t be able to help myself haha
