Insta360 Pro 8K VR camera launching Q1 for $3000 – with 4K live streaming

Producing high quality 360 video has never been easy, but it’s getting easier every day—literally.

At CES 2017, Insta360—makers of the Insta360 Nano and Air clip-on 360 cameras for iOS and Android—announced the Insta360 Pro, a professional VR camera that can shoot 8K 360 video, 6K 3D 360 video and can stitch (and live stream) 4K video in real-time.

The Insta360 Pro offers a maximum resolution of 8K for 360 video at 30 fps, as well as 6K resolution for 360 3D video. A key feature of the system is its auto-stitching software, Insta360 Studio.

The Insta360 Pro offers real-time stitching for live streaming and immediate sharing of 4K 360 video (30 fps) and 360 3D video (25 fps).

Higher definition footage (8K 360 video at 30 fps, 4K 360 video at 100 fps, and 6K 360 3D video at 30 fps) can be auto-stitched with Insta360 Studio.

The camera also features a VR timelapse mode and can capture 60-megapixel 360 3D stills in JPG and RAW formats.

Insta360 Studio can run on Mac, Windows and iPad, and live video can be controlled with the Insta360 Pro iOS or Android apps via wifi, Ethernet or 4G connection, and shared to Facebook, YouTube and Twitter. 4K videos can also be immediately shared to Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, WhatsApp, Messenger and WeChat.

The camera features two built-in microphones and AUX inputs for external microphones. The removable battery, which can be charged while shooting, lasts for up to 75 minutes.

The Insta360 Pro also offers a live preview option to make it easier to capture the perfect angle.
