  • Insta360 Pro: an 8K camera with exceptional features
  • The Insta360 Pro camera is intended for professional use

Chinese start-up Insta360 is not unknown in the world of 360-degree cameras. The middle-empire company has already made a name for itself with Insta360 Nano, its standalone 360-degree camera for iPhone.

The camera is primarily intended for making 360-degree RAW-quality HDR movies and in 3D for virtual reality. The other notable aspect of this camera is its ability to shoot with high quality despite low light which is generally the weak point of other 360 degree cameras.



In 4K mode, the Insta360 Pro camera supports 100 fps which makes it possible to avoid the nausea which is well known to virtual reality fans. This camera, which Hollywood would probably not denigrate, will be marketed during the first quarter of 2017. Its price will reserve it, again, for professional or semi-professional use because it is announced at around 3000 dollars.
