Insta360 SMO 360: Ultralight Panoramic Camera for drones

Insta360 SMO 360

Insta360 in cooperation with BetaFPV just released their ultralight panoramic action camera. Inspired by the success of the Naked SMO 4K project, the SMO 360 was specially designed for compact FPV drones such as the upcoming Pavo360.

Weighing only 55grams, Insta360 x BetaFPV SMO 360 is a stripped-back camera that includes just two fisheye lenses and a processor core, powered directly by the drone’s main battery. It’s super easy to install onto the 3” CineWhoop Pavo360 drone -just mount it, plug it in and enjoy cool 5.7K 360-degree videos. Thanks to the camera’s dual-lens design and the drone’s thin frame, the drone appears completely invisible in videos, resulting in more immersive footage.

Core features

  • 5.7K 360° Video Capture: SMO 360 has a dual-lens design to capture stunning 5.7K 360° videos during the flight. The distance between the two lenses of SMO 360 was increased in order to accommodate more powerful drone motors and make the drone completely invisible throughout the entire flight. SMO 360 is an out-of-the-box solution for FPV pilots who want to explore the immersiveness and creativity of 360-degree FPV drone footage, without any re-engineering needed.
  • 55g Ultralight Body Design: SMO 360 only weighs 55g, which is light enough to be mounted on the Pavo360 3” drone. A perfectly matched pair, together they provide a smooth flying experience and high-quality 360 footage with the invisible drone effect.
  • FlowState Stabilization For FPV Drones: SMO 360 is backed up with Insta360’s FlowState stabilization, which ensures the video is stable throughout the flight, no matter what maneuvers you attempt. This makes SMO 360 the perfect camera for capturing 360 videos while flying an FPV drone.
  • Plug-In and Ready to Use with Pavo360 drone: SMO 360 comes with a 6V to 27V power connector. All you need to do is just plug it into Pavo360 and it will be powered by the drone.
