Insta360’s Sphere allows DJI’s latest Mavic Air drone to capture 360-degree video

Best known for its action and 360 degree cameras, the Insta360 has launched an interesting drone camera. The Insta360 Sphere can be attached to the body of DJI’s Mavic Air 2 or Air 2S drone to shoot 5.7K 360 footage or create regular 2D video. Even better, Insta360’s technology ensures that the drone is “invisible” on the shot.

Since the 360 ​​° camera shoots in all directions, half of the video can be blocked by the drone itself. However, Insta360 installed cameras on both sides of the drone so that it wouldn’t show up in the video. To provide seamless footage, “Insta360’s unique dynamic stitching algorithm automatically erases the entire drone (including the propeller),” the company wrote.

The Sphere connects to the Mavic Air 2 / 2S drone with an “ultra-safe” mechanism and does not affect its structural integrity, GPS signals or control systems. Insta360 also promises smooth flight through FlowState stabilization technology tuned for Sphere. At the same time, you can simultaneously capture video from the drone’s own camera.

The company showed off some great footage on YouTube videos with barrel rolls and dolly zoom created with the Insta360 app. Insta360 Sphere is currently available in the US and mainland China for $ 430.
