Insta360 ONE X Matterport integration makes virtual tour creation easy as pie

Insta360 ONE X Matterport integration makes virtual tour creation easy as pie

Insta360 has definitely come a long way. Starting out with a 360-degree accessory for iPhones, the company has moved up to offering the same ease-of-use and convenience to professionals in just two years. The recently announced Insta360 Titan targeted professional studios and creators but you don’t need an expensive kit just for that. The Insta360 ONE X upgrade last year brought everything you need in a professional but portable camera and can soon be used by Matterport users to create virtual tours that not only educate but can also sell real estate.

Insta360 Titan harnesses eight Micro 4/3 sensors for 11K video

It started out with 360-degree camera accessories for smartphones but Insta360 is now all grown up and is ready to play in the big leagues. By big leagues, we mean those studios and content creators that require “professional”, and therefore expensive, rigs to perform their video or photo magic. Taking their hard-earned lessons and technologies from consumer products, Insta360 is introducing the Titan with its eight, yes eight, micro four-thirds cameras.

Insta360 ONE X Review: an unbelievable upgrade

Insta360 ONE X Review: an unbelievable upgrade

Last year, Insta360, one of the first few companies that made 360-degree video recording accessible to the masses, launched the Insta360 ONE. It offered more ways, many of them novel and fun, to create 360-degree content without having to carry bulky equipment. But while it mostly did deliver on those creative features, the actual quality of the output still left some things to be desired. This year, the company is coming out with the Insta360 ONE X and it’s like a completely different product. We take it for a long ride, actually multiple ones, to demonstrate how much it has improved in just a year’s time.

Facebook, RED reveal Manifold 360-degree camera

Facebook may be in trouble for dipping its hands into too many things but it isn’t backing out from its mission of being at the center of modern life. And quite literally too.

Preferably an Oculus Rift, Go, or Quest.

Insta360 Pro 2 camera has creators covered from start to finish

If you don’t hear much about 360-degree and VR videos lately, it’s not because they have suddenly gone out of fashion. The market is, instead, becoming more stable rather than revolutionary, more serious rather than sensational. It is at a stage when tools and processes are starting to mature to become something both creators and consumers can reliably depend on. It is, therefore, a perfect time for Insta360 to bring out its big guns, the new and more powerful Insta360 Pro 2 that promises to make creators’ lives and workflow easier and to help viewers get less nauseous when watching 360-degree content.

PanoClip uses your iPhone’s camera for 360-degree magic

PanoClip uses your iPhone’s camera for 360-degree magic

Insta360 started a new trend right at the height of the 360-degree craze. It attached to an iPhone and let you take photos, record or even stream videos without any additional equipment. But while it opened up new possibilities, it was also hampered by the limits of its own cameras, just barely reaching 2K resolutions. Now parent company Arashi Vision is launching a new product and a new brand that addresses all that. Just like its cousin, PanoClip attaches to your iPhone to produce 360-degree content. Unlike its cousin, it takes advantage of the great iPhone cameras that are already there.
