Arashi Vision has begun shipping a clip-on camera that shoots and live-streams HD 360-degree stills and video directly from an iPhone.
The Apple MFi-approved Insta360 Nano clips onto an iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 6s or 6s Plus. Once connected, the Insta360 Nano app, running on the iPhone, automatically activates and can be set to stream content directly to popular social media sites.
For panoramic action shots or videos, the Insta360 Nano can be attached to a bike or boarding helmet, drone or selfie stick. If a user doesn’t have access to a VR headset, the Insta360 packaging converts into a Google Cardboard VR viewer.
The camera features two 210-degree fish-eye lenses and a slot for an external 64GB memory card.
“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.
The Insta360 Nano is available now on Amazon for $199.
