The Insta360 ONE X is an actioncam, but with two wide-angle cameras and a particularly good image stabilization of other models stand out. What features the camera brings all, you can read here.
The manufacturer Insta360 comes (like so many others) from Shenzhen in southern China. So far you have already brought a handful of cameras on the market; the ONE X is now the successor to the Insta360 One, which already had a similar design.
Initially, the Insta360 ONE X is a 360 ° camera. That is, it takes a round (“spherical”) image, for which it needs two lenses pointing in the opposite direction. Occasionally one finds also the designation “panorama cameras” for these models. If you look at the pictures afterwards, you can turn the picture with your finger or mouse and look in every direction.
The camera takes videos in 4K or 5.3K in fact. The video resolution is 5760 x 2880, which is the common value of both cameras, which is also converted to the spherical representation. One to one, the resolution is not comparable to the “4K” that you see on the TV. Nevertheless, the previously released shots of the manufacturer can be seen.
Although the camera has a small display, only a few settings can be made about it. Instead, you can watch the pictures on the smartphone, which is connected to the camera via WLAN.
In addition to the stabilized shots, the bullet-time effect is one of the most spectacular features. At 3K and 100 fps, slow-motion shots can be taken, for example, by letting the camera circle around itself on a string. And with the Smart Track feature, any portion of the 360 ° video can be exported to a “normal” 1080p video.
In addition to the actual camera, there is still a lot of optional accessories. The so-called “invisible” Selfie-stick is actually not to be seen on the recordings, as it is just below the camera (at the bottom of the two shots) and is virtually cut out of the finished image. The ” gadget -shot” gadget is an arrow-shaped mount, with which the camera is thrown. What sounds funny at first produces sometimes impressive slow motion shots.
There are also two different cases, the Venture Case against splashing water and the even better dive case , which is used for diving.
Thanks to the standard thread under the camera, however, it can theoretically be mounted on any suitable bracket.
