Look left, look right, look up and down — and zoom into Iceland’s Mt. Fagradalsfjall eruption, all in stunning 8K.
Iceland’s erupting volcano, Mt. Fagradalsfjall, presented a drone pilot’s dream! Videos of the blaze-orange lava spurting out of the quaking volcano are all over the internet — we even covered one man who piloted his drone on a crash course directly into the lava.
But Ragnar Th. Sigurðsson, founder of photo and video company Arctic Images, and drone pilot Arnar Þór Þórsson decided to get even more up close and personal — without melting their equipment.
The venture was also sponsored by Iceland’s Perlan museum, which fittingly hosts an 8K planetarium. To learn more about how this project took off (literally), check out Insta360’s blog.
