Remember when the first 360 videos were shot using just a few GoPros grouped together? Then very roughly stitched together to create 360 photos and videos.
Enter Insta360 Pro.
With the Nokia Ozo being discontinued, we think that the Insta360 Pro is the 360 video camera to beat for 360 VR content creators. Not to mention it’s reasonable price compared to Facebook’s Surround 360, GoPro Omni and Nokia’s Ozo.
Our first impression of the Insta360 was that it is a highly integrated device that is both professional class in its capabilities and user friendly all at the same time. This is definitely Insta360’s first professional grade 360 camera! With six 200° fisheye lenses and adjustable shutter speed, you can have complete control over how many lenses the camera shoots with – from just three to all six of the lenses.
Some of our favourite Insta360 Pro features:
- High-resolution recording
- Real-time image stabilisation
- Mobility (you can move it around without any stitching issues)
- Stereoscopic sound
- A cute frame with an easy to grip body
Overall, the camera produced some really high quality 360 photos and videos that have been unparalleled by the other 360 cameras we’ve used.
We had to take the camera out for a spin around Singapore. Here’s a few real-world tests we did using the camera.
Insta360 Pro lives up to its promises. As 360 video content creators, we are always looking for high-performance cameras and tools to aid us in that journey. We can’t wait to create more content with this camera as we head to Sydney next week for a 360 VR shoot. Stay tuned for that!
