The Pro 2 was unique in being able to live stream while also recording a video .
Insta360 has launched the Insta360 Pro 2 featuring 8K 3D, Flow State Stabilization and a simplified VR workflow. The Insta360 Pro 2 uses a six-lens setup to shoot 8K-per-eye 3D 360 video. Back in April, Insta360 announced native integration into Premiere Pro which has continued with the development of the Insta360 Pro 2 offering a simple post-production workflow. The Pro 2 camera can shoot 8K 3D at 30 FPS, 8K monoscopic at 60FPS, 6K 3D at 60 FPS, 4K 3D at 120 FPS and more. There is also built-in HDR modes and a flat i-Log colour profile.

In order to provide consistent, realistic light, an in-camera HDR works to try and keep the lighting look natural, even when light varies in different directions. To keep the image steady, Insta360have included its proprietary Flow State stabilization algorithm, which brings an in-camera stabilization system to VR. This uses a gyroscope that can track motion on nine axes, which combines with the custom software that lets creators stabilize the footage.
Capture better from every angle and shoot Every Detail in Every Direction
The Pro 2 comes paired with Far sight technology, a 360-degree live monitoring system that offers a high-definition, low-latency video stream that’s optimized for long-distance previewing. Also found near the top of the Pro 2 are two new antennas: One for GPS and the other for Wi-Fi. The later offers the same 30 fps frame rate for live monitoring while within a five-meter range, which still serves as a handy backup if your Far sight kit run out of battery or is out of service. With a transmitter and receiver, creators can direct and control their scene from a distance of roughly 300 meters. Transmitting at 5.18 Ghz, the Far sight uses smart channel switching to ensure it always cuts through the noise.
Orders for the Insta360 Pro 2 are open now via Insta360 Store and selected retailers worldwide
The Pro 2 is lightweight, at only 3 pounds it would be possible to mount it onto a drone. A hot-swap battery dock enables continuous power and four built-in mics capture immersive 360-surround audio. USB and 3.5mm audio inputs are found on the top and bottom, allowing for custom audio setups and other add-ons. The Pro 2features seven memory card slots.
