  1. $30,000-$60,000...these people are crazy thinking these cameras are going to catch on at those price points for a budding medium.

  2. Yeah, it can't be that much better compared to insta360 Pro that only costs one tenth of the price.

    2. I agree with the price argument - but this...

      Lens Specs : Premium 190 degree MFT fish eye, f/2.8~11

      *Is* going to make an amazing difference to the resulting output.

  3. Their initial offering is $2000, with 6K @ 40 fps (off the top of my head). That was affordable for a decent 360 camera. I mean you get what you pay for - the quality is outstanding. But I agree with the other posters, $35k is outrageous. Get the basic Z CAM or just throw together a HERO 4 Black rig.
