The specialist for 360 video camera Insta360 today announces the One R action sport camera, which was developed in collaboration with Leica. The Insta360 One R is designed to scare the competition with GoPro cameras as a combination of 4K action camera and 360 VR camera with interchangeable lens modules to capture high-quality VR videos.
In the run-up to the launch of the new Insta360 One R action camera, there were rumors that the company with the new All-in-One camera One R had essential functions of the action sport camera, 360 video camera, and system cameras wants to accommodate in a device. With the Insta360 One X, the specialist for 360 VR camera brand already has an extraordinary and popular panorama action cam at the start, but the new Insta360 One R, as an adaptive action cam, is opening a completely new chapter in this highly competitive market segment.
The Insta360 One R, which is waterproof to a depth of 5 meters, was developed in a strategic partnership with Leica. One can already be curious to see what the competition with GoPro will oppose the Insta360 One R. The One R allows the lens modules to be exchanged and therefore can be adapted for different purposes:
- Dual-Lens 360 Mod: This mod enables 5.7K shots with two fisheye lenses, which completely capture the surroundings from all directions. A 360-degree preview in real-time on the touch screen of the One R is supported, while innovations such as ColorPlus, HDR-Video, and Night-Shot ensure high color accuracy even in poor lighting conditions.
- 4K Wide Angle Mod: This One R Mod enables 4K @60 fps. Insta360 promises crisp, lively, stabilized action shots. 8x slow motion is also supported. Thanks to the reversible design, the touchscreen can be switched from back to front in no time at all – ideal for vloggers to see a real-time preview when filming.
- 1-inch Wide Angle Mod: The mod developed together with Leica for the Insta360 One R is intended to bring the recording quality for action cams to an unprecedented level. A 1-inch image sensor in combination with high-quality Leica optics should ensure this and deliver brilliant 5.3K videos and 19MP photos under different lighting conditions.
In no time at all, the One R can be converted from a dual-lens 360 shooter into a standard action sport camera. In addition to the electronic stabilization technology “FlowState 2.0”, the Insta360 One R also has voice control, auto-framing and tracking of subjects (Deep Track), supports the calculation of the selfie stick (invisible selfie stick when using the dual-lens 360 Mod), two microphones in each module and extensive editing functions on-board.
According to Insta360, the standard battery of the One R can be optionally exchanged for an additional battery with double capacity for longer recordings. In addition, “ONE R Aerial Edition” that is compatible with drones, comparable to the invisible selfie stick, should then make the flying drones completely invisible in the picture.
