Watch in 8K: Insta360 + DJI Drone Captures Iceland Volcano’s 1st Eruption in 800 Years!

What happens when you pair a DJI drone with the most powerful 8K 360 camera? You find something absolutely epic to film, like an erupting volcano that’s been dormant for 8 centuries!

On March 19th, 2021, the Mt. Fagradalsfjall volcano in Geldingadalur, Iceland erupted for the first time in 800 years. Located in the southern Reykjanes Peninsula, the Fagradalsfjall volcano had been dormant for 6,000 years, but has now continued to emit fresh lava for over a month. Now for the first time, you can watch mesmerizing drone footage of the volcano’s eruption in 8K VR.
