The Insta360 Titan promises VR video you won’t believe

Where regular consumer 360 cameras top out at a maximum 5.7k, the Insta 360 Titan captures at an incredible 11K resolution. Launched at CES 2019, the Titan produces 10,560 x 5,280 video and stills. Not only that, it can capture both in 2D (monoscopic) and 3D (stereoscopic) formats.

Ordinary 360 cameras use a two small smartphone-size sensors back to back, with a 180+ degree fisheye lens over each, then stitch the two hemispherical images into a single 360 degree image in-camera in real time.
