Editors Note: 2D Version on podcast. Watch the VR version on YouTube.
Insta360 was as Cine Gear 2019, showing off their new Titan camera – a $15,000 VR camera that can shoot up to 11K. I took this opportunity to also really look at the Insta360 One X.
About the Insta360
This is a consumer camera that can do up to 5.7K video in 360 video format. In fact, we recorded the video using this, along with my DJI Osmo Pocket for 2D video.
The One X Action camera also captures 18 MP photos. You can capture both video and photos on the device (with MicroSD card) or connect to the Insta360 app so you can record right to your phone via WiFi or cable (cable will be faster)
The app also allows for previews and adjustments to the camera. The App also can make edits and adjustments. It can give you a world view, or trim down the video for Facebook, Instagram, and more.
FlowState Stabilization keeps the video as stable as possible. Even if you turn the camera, you’ll see slight stitch lines, but the camera is keeping from majorly shaking.
When you look at the video, you’ll notice none of the camera, and most of your tripod or selfie stick will not be in the video.
Insta360 Titan with Farsight
If you’re looking for better quality, and have $15,000 laying around, the Titan is the 360 camera to go. It contains 8 cameras, using micro-4:3 lenses, and will stitch up to 11K photos or video (10K in 3D).
The camera also records 4 mono signals from 90 degrees to cover the whole camera.
You can connect with the app, and it will record your shots on 9 full-sized SD cards.
The camera also comes with Farsight – a ground-to-ground technology that allows you to control the camera from up to 1/3 of a mile away. This way, you won’t be in the shot, wires won’t be in the shot, but your content will be in the shot.
Titan can do H264 and H265 in camera, and Pro RES 422 in post stitching. it will even live stream using RTSP, RTMP, HIS, or RTMPS. The camera sends wireless, and wired signals if needed.
