After announcing a formidable looking professional 360 camera at NAB in 2017, Insta360 is making an impressive firmware update to their Pro line. With firmware version 2.0 they’ve promised improved overall image quality, added manual framerate adjustments and much needed exposure curves to the camera — and best yet, it’s free. And, for you stills folks out there, the Insta360Pro now shoots 12K images. Details on the new firmware update below:

Image Quality:

Insta360 promises improved dynamic range, white balance, saturation and image contrast with the new firmware update. The company also says maintaining detail in the darker areas of photos or videos captured with the camera have been a priority with this update.

Manual Framerate Adjustments:

Firmware v2.0 allows increased control over framerate export. For example, if you shoot a video at 30fps you’ll now be able to double the framerate and export at 60fps thanks to a technology Insta 360 is calling “Optical Flow Interpolation”. The same goes with any of the framerates the Insta360Pro is capable of shooting. 120fps can become 240fps on export and so on. I can see this feature being useful for dialing in the best framerate for action sports and other fast moving shots where having the perfect framerate is paramount to reduce shutter.
