Insta360 Pro, Insta360’s 8K 360 camera, is being released soon. Meanwhile, Insta360 has been posting more samples from Insta360 Pro, including some new low light samples that show the Insta360 Pro’s incredible low light performance.
Insta360 Pro is a professional 360 camera from Insta360 with 8K 360 video. It also features 6K 3D 360 video, 4K in-camera stitched video (2D or 3D), and 4K live streaming.
It is also one of the very few 360 cameras with gyro-based image stabilization that can maintain a level horizon regardless of how the camera is rotated. It does all of this at an unheard-of price of $3,500 (the price already includes stitching software), far below professional 360 cameras such as the $5,000 GoPro Omni rig, which has up to 8K resolution but requires tedious stitching of six video files from six GoPro cameras, and has no 3D capture or live streaming capability. As far as I know, this is the lowest cost 8K 360 camera.
Meanwhile, Insta360 recently posted low light samples from the Insta360 Pro which show excellent detail, saturation, and contrast, and very low noise. Here are the samples (note: there is no audio).
Here is a 6K sample:
Please note YouTube hasn’t optimized its streaming above 4K, so it won’t play smoothly on YouTube. This is an issue with YouTube, not Insta360 Pro. However, you can download Insta360 Pro samples here, and if your PC or smartphone is powerful enough, it will play back smoothly.
I’ve ordered the Insta360 Pro and will post impressions, samples, and eventually a review when I receive it. If you have any questions, please let me know in the comments. (Sorry, I’m not at liberty to answer questions about shipment dates.)
