So last night a spanner was added to the works....

The Kandao QooCam 8k

View attachment 4598
Just had an email telling me the camera is not going to be available when agreed on the preorder, so have cancelled for now. Which could work in my favour as Insta360 are also rumoured to have a new flagship consumer camera being released very soon!

Thats very intriguing! I wonder if it will be a drone? Ooh or maybe its a camera+drone, so the camera can be popped off and used individually?

I think it will be some kind of trickery as opposed to a fully fledged drone, either that or it'll have an ability to hover rather than fly! :)

Hmmmm hovering :cool:

Side note: The DJI Osmo gimbal things that have tracking and panning (words do not do it justice) blows my mind

I would assume drone where you can click/fit it in. Simple frame and 2 or 4 propellers is all it really needs ;)

on the 7th I imagine, although Insta360 don't seem to get their stock levels right so they may sell out fast if it is any good.

That's my birthday so ill have to keep an eye out. I don't think any stores will have it, maybe just through the insta360 website?

Seeing as I cancelled my preorder on the QooCam 8k, and just sold the Yoshi exhaust for my Triumph, I may have just ordered the new Insta360 One R camera! :)

I'm getting one as well but haven't ordered just yet. Still watching the reviews on YouTube but will probably order before going to sleep. Did you get the 1in sensor? I see it's now sold out. I'm interested in it but think the twin pack will be good enough to start.

I didn't go for the 1" just yet as I currently only use 1080 so no real benefit yet.

I really really want to order the One R, massive improvement over the previous models, and with the factory waterproof housing it's far more appealing to me.

I think the twin edition looks best for motovlogging and agree the 1" may be a little bit ott for motovlogging.

I look forward to any upcoming videos of the new camera Mr Hippo ;)

After all that is how I found your channel in the first place because of the Insta360 content you have done :D
