For budding photographers who like to use their iPhones to take pictures there’s only so much a smartphone can do in comparison to a proper camera. And if you like your technology to be the latest thing then being able to take 360-degree pictures and videos might be right up your street. Officially announced today by Arashi Vision is the latest gadget for your iPhone, the Insta360 Nano, a device that allows users to create immersive content with their device and share it with the world.
Featuring two 210-degree fisheye lenses the can take pictures, record video and also live-stream by clipping it onto an iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 6s or 6s Plus. But it doesn’t need to be attached to a smartphone to work either as the Insta360 Nano can be attached to a bike or boarding helmet, drone or selfie stick.
“We expect the Insta360 Nano to blast the market for 360-degree cameras wide open. The Nano sets a new price point for virtual reality: at under $200, it brings the ability to live-stream and share 360-degree VR movies to everyone,” said Liu Jingkang, founder and CEO of Arashi Vision.
