Meet the Insta360 EVO, a foldable camera that shoots 3D 180º video and 360º 5.7K video
Insta360 has launched EVO, a cube-style camera that shoots 360-degree and stereoscopic 3D 180-degree video footage and stills thanks to its unique folding design.
The camera features the same 5.7K video resolution and 18-megapixel still resolution as the Insta360 One X, as well as Insta360's six-axis FlowState stabilization technology. In fact, the camera as a whole has similar specs to the One X as a whole, including F2.2 apertures on both lenses, various exposure modes in video and stills, Bluetooth 4.0, 5Ghz Wi-Fi and a microSD card slot with a maximum storage of 128GB.
But the internal specs are where the similarities end. Unlike the One X, the EVO doesn't have any integrated LCD display. Instead, the camera features a hinged design that enables the cameras to capture a full 360-degree image when the lenses are facing opposite directions or stereoscopic 3D 180-degree images when the EVO is folded out with the lenses facing the same direction.
The camera itself has only a few buttons and ports on it, including a power button and a button for switching between various shooting modes and settings. On the side of the camera is the microSD card slot and a micro USB slot (unusual Insta360 didn't opt for a USB Type-C port instead).
Since the EVO doesn't have a screen of its own, the camera is dependent on an Insta360 EVO app to compose the images, change the settings and overall control the camera with more finesse than the limited on-device controls. The app will be available in the iOS App Store and Google Play Store.
The EVO is currently available for order on Insta360's website and B&H for $419.99.
Insta360 has also announced Insta360 VR, a new app for Oculus Go, HTC Vive Focus and Samsung Gear VR that will allow users to connect an EVO camera to a headset for simple wireless playback of the stereoscopic 3D 180-degree video or 360-degree video.
For phones that don't have stereoscopic playback capabilities, Insta360 has also announced Holoframe, a specialized phone display cover that will enable standard smartphones to view photos and videos in 3D with the naked eye. In its press release, Insta360 says 'It’s simple, mind-blowing and feels like magic.'
The HoloFrame is available for iPhone X/Xs, iPhone X Max and iPhone XR for $29.99 from Insta360's online shop.
