The device that straps around your DJI Air 2 and DJI Air 2S, allowing you to capture footage while flying. It has convenient holes so as not obstruct sensors on the downward facing side of these drones! Here’s what else we know:
- The latching mechanism sits at the top, over the battery but not blocking the power button
- Cameras protrude above and below the drone’s body. This makes for slightly awkward landings, but there’s a fix we’ll explore later
- Power and record buttons plus electronics are in the module seen on the right, between upper and lower lenses
- Battery and charging port are seen here on the left
Here’s how Insta360 describes the product:
“The all-new Insta360 Sphere is a 360-degree invisible drone camera—the ultimate tool to level up your content production with the DJI Mavic Air 2/2S. With Sphere attached, the drone becomes totally invisible in the resulting footage, while the camera’s lightweight, unibody structure and intuitive operation make 360 aerial filming easier than ever before. Creators can take advantage of powerful editing tools such as 360 reframing, auto-tracking and more to effortlessly capture otherwise impossible shots and effects.”
How it works
To create a 360° image, you need two cameras. One camera is on the top of the drone and one camera is on the bottom of the drone. When you put these pictures together, it makes a picture that captures everything around the drone.
In conclusion, the Insta360 Sphere is a welcome addition to the third-party offering for the DJI Air 2 / DJI Air 2S ecosystem. Providing users with an easy way to shoot immersive, 360-degree videos and photos, the Insta360 Sphere will be a great tool for photographers, filmmakers, and other creatives.
With the ability to control settings and stitch footage wirelessly through an app on the fly, it is an affordable and intuitive filmmaking experience that will help the creative community take their work to the next level.
