Did you see that Mettle was bought by Adobe? Expect all their 360 tools to be integrated into the Adobe Creative Suite soon.

    Hi Fire79.  I preordered the Insta360 Nano.  I'll write a review after I've tested it.

    Hi everyone. Got the Nano yesterday. Briefly, I think the camera has potential for being a good camera for what it was designed for: casual use. It's simple to use, relatively inexpensive, has decent image quality for both photo and video, and makes it easy to share videos on YouTube.

    However, it has several issues such as not having a self-timer, having an Insta360 logo/watermark on all photos and videos, and being difficult to use with a tripod or selfie stick. Most of these issues can be remedied and fortunately, Insta360 has responded with remarkable speed and has assured me that these issues will be addressed. Some like the logo - will be fixed as early as this week ! Their responsiveness gives me hope that this camera can fulfill its potential as a 360 camera for the masses.

    I'm still some more testing and will post a review by next week.

    Here are my first impressions: http://360rumors.blo...-review-so.html
