Insta360 shows off Titan 11K 360-degree video camera at CES 2019

At CES, Insta360’s opened reservations for the Insta360 Titan. It’s an eight-lens cinematic VR camera capable of capturing 360 video at up at 11K resolution.

The Titan has the largest sensor offered in any standalone VR camera. It sports an eight Micro Four Thirds (MFT) sensors. Insta360 claims the MFT sensor maximizes “image quality, dynamic range, low-light performance and color depth, raising the bar for realism in high-end professional VR capture.”

Let’s go over the key features:

11K video

This 360 camera is the first ever standalone 360 camera that’s ready to record in 11K. It’s spotlighted shooting mode is 11K at 30 FPS, but it can shoot 10K 3D video at 30 FPS and 11K 360 photos in 3D and monoscopic formats.

Other shooting modes offered include 8K at 60 FPS and 5.3K 360 video at 120 FPS.

8 cameras with 8 large sensors

Other sensors found in other VR cameras are much smaller than the one found in the Titan. The benefits of having a larger sensor mean there will be a boost in image quality. Insta360’s Titan has eight optimized MFT sensors that sport large sensor.

It’s potential for the Titan to offer image quality never seen before in VR cameras due mainly to its sensors.

10-bit color

The 360 camera will support shooting in 10-bit color. 10-bit color shooting will allow the camera to capture color a lot more accurately than it would without. It gives the camera access to billions of color combinations. Also, the camera features high dynamic range, allowing creators to capture natural lighting and low-light scenes more realistically.

Preview shots remotely

Insta360’s included its Farsight live monitoring feature in the Titan, via a transmitter and a receiver that attaches to your mobile device.

Also, the system’s CrystalView allows the camera to render the part of the video the viewer is watching in real time. So, even mainstream smartphones can play back 11K video without losing any quality.

FlowState Stabilization

On-board stabilization makes capturing action shots and post-production a whole lot easier. The Titan uses Insta360’s FlowState Stabilization tech. This gives the camera 9-axis stabilization that Insta360 claims to be “gimbal-like.”

Pricing and Availability

The Insta360 Titan is open for reserve now and will be shipped in April. The Titan is priced at $14,999.
