On March 13 Insta360 announced EVO, the cube-shaped 360° camera that can also unfold to capture 180° 3D content.
Shenzhen-based 360° camera company Insta360 has launched a folding camera that can capture both 360° and 180° 3D content: the Insta360 EVO.
When the camera is folded in half into a cube with lenses on opposite sides, the device can shoot 5.7K 360° videos and take 18MP 360° photos. When unfolded so that the two lenses are on the same side, EVO can take 5.7K 180° 3D videos and 18MP 180° 3D photos.
To quickly enjoy the content that you captured with the EVO, the company also launched the Insta360 VP and the Insta360 HoloFrame; the former is an app for select VR headsets (the Oculus Go and Samsung Gear VR, for example) that allows you to connect them to the EVO for direct playback and transfer, while the latter is a phone screen cover that “lets you watch 3D photos and videos with the naked eye”.
The Insta360 EVO is available starting today for US$419.99 (RM1,718.19) and the HoloFrame display cover is sold separately for US$29.99 (RM122.69).
