Shooting a VR-supported, 360-degree video while on the go has now become easier with the Insta360 Nano— an actual camera that attaches to the iPhone and not a simple lens cover for the phone’s built-in camera, making it easier to shoot everyday moments without carrying around a big fancy camera rig. The device works by pairing front-facing and rear-facing 210-degree fish-eye cameras and connecting to the bottom of an iPhone. This means that the phone needs to be held upside down while in use.
The camera stiches together its panoramic images in real-time so no need for post-processing, thus allowing the user to share the videos immediately. It can capture at 30fps with a max resolution of 3k. Once the camera is paired with an accompanying app, users can quickly and easily share images on social networks like Facebook and Twitter and even live broadcast their 360-degree footage. Insta360 Nano comes at a price of $199 and is available in five different colours including silver, black, gray, gold and pink— matching with the colour of iPhones.
