8K is set to be the biggest technological advancement over the next few years, but before we get to that we are going to need to new and accessible 8K-ready tech.
One step towards that comes with Insta360’s latest announcement of the new Insta360 Pro, which is a 360-degree camera that was unveiled at CES 2017 and is ready to shoot 360-degree content at up to an 8K resolution.
It is aimed at professionals, so it’s not exactly accessible at the moment at $3,000, however, as technology evolves these sorts of cameras will trickle down to consumers.
On the Insta360 Pro you will find a total of six lens modules around its circular design, each of which has an f/2.4 aperture along with the ability to not only shoot still images in a RAW format with HDR support but also record video in either H.264 or H.265 formats.
It can also record 4K 360-degree videos at 30 frames per second, or 4K 360-degree videos at 100fps, making it pretty good for slow-motion shooting.
The camera also has an intervalometer mode for shooting 360-degree time-lapse experiences. And that’s still not all, it will have support for live stitching and streaming in a 4K resolution over an Android or iOS device to Facebook, YouTube or Twitter.
It also comes with support for Wi-Fi and 4G wireless tethering with the ability to connect Ethernet as well.
