Insta360 Pro 8K VR camera delayed, more expensive than previously announced, by Sarah Redohl

The much anticipated Insta360 Pro will be at NAB 2017—and, hopefully, available soon after.

The camera, which records 8K 360 video, 6K 3D 360 video and 4K 360 video with realtime stitching or live streaming (either monoscopic or stereoscopic), was announced in January of this year at CES. The camera is comprised of six f/2.4 lenses studded in a spherical housing that feed a processor that supports Raw and HDR recording in both h.264 and h.265 codecs.

The announcement that it would be available sometime in Q1—an ambitious time frame—led to much anticipation and a healthy dose of skepticism from the industry. Although Q1 2017 has come and gone, its physical presence at NAB is hopefully a sign that it will be available in the near future.

Insta360, which also makes the Insta360 Nano and Air 360 cameras for iPhone and Android devices, also announced that the estimated price would increase from $2,999 to $3,499.
