Here are some of the 360 cameras that were used to capture 360 videos and live streams of the eclipse!
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).
