The updated Insta Pro 2 model will help us shoot 360° stereo videos in 8K resolution, and 360° mono videos in 8K with 60 fps. Insta One X is the most compact option for shooting 360° videos in 5,7K resolution and that gives us the possibility to work in the most difficult and extreme conditions, where it is better not to risk losing or damaging professional equipment.
By using the FarSight set we will be able to see on-line what the camera is capturing, even when it is on the drone up in the sky. The StateFlow stabilization system will help us get smooth pictures even when the drone makes fast maneuvers, or when there is strong wind.
