Insta 360 launches ONE X 360-degree 5.7K action camera
Insta360 today launched the ONE X, a 5.7K 360-degree action camera that's compatible with Android and iOS mobile devices.
The new model is capable of recording spherical video at 5.7K resolution and 30 frames per second. For smooth motion in action videos or slow-motion effects you can also opt to record 4K footage at 50fps or 3K video at 100fps. In photo mode the camera captures 18MP still images.
Insta360 claims the new camera delivers "gimbal-like" stabilization without the gimbal. To achieve this the ONE X uses an upgraded version of Insta360's FlowState stabilization algorithm which constantly analyzes movement in all directions.
Using the dedicated editing app, video can be reframed and re-edited to highlight the best elements of a scene and create cinematic clips that would be much more difficult to achieve with conventional cameras. In addition the new TimeShift feature lets users adjust the speed of different parts of a clip to put the focus on key moments, using either slow-motion or hyperlapse effects.
Insta360 says the ability to automatically remove a selfie stick from the footage in the app in combination with the company's customized 10-foot selfie stick allows for the capture of drone-like footage without a drone. Thanks to its rugged construction the camera can even be thrown around when snapped into the Insta360 Drifter camera dart, allowing for very unusual effects.
The ONE X connects to mobile devices via WiFi, providing real-time image preview and control. The same connection can be used to transfer footage for editing but you also have the option to use a USB cable.
ISO, exposure compensation, white balance, and shutter speed are user adjustable. Optional accessories include a rugged case, an underwater case, and a GPS Smart Remote.
The Insta360 ONE X can be pre-ordered on the Insta360 website and at retailers globally now and is priced at $399.95. Shipping starts on October 17. For more information and some quite impressive sample footage have a look at the video below.
Insta360 ONE X Redefines the Action Camera with 5.7K Video, Impossible Stabilization, Cinematic Slow-Mo
The future of the action camera is here. Insta360 today launched the ONE X, a 5.7K camera that uses 360° capture, groundbreaking stabilization and cinematic slow-mo to radically expand what’s possible with a camera.
Compatible with both iOS and Android, the ONE X is available to order today at Insta360.com, with shipments beginning Oct. 17.
Insta360 ONE X - The Future Of The Action Camera:
A new kind of camera.
The ONE X is more than a 360-degree shooter. It’s a new kind of camera that uses 360 to give users more freedom and more creative possibilities – both during and after capture.
Combining an unlimited field of view with gimbal-level stabilization and new high-FPS shooting modes, the ONE X unlocks the ability to control time and perspective in ways that make it feel more like a fleet of cameras than a single device.
Shooting in every direction and making it all look good, requires some serious resolution.
That’s why the ONE X records at a best-in-class 5.7K (30 FPS). For dynamic scenes, new 50 FPS (4K) and 100 FPS (3K) shooting modes keep action super-smooth and let you slow the action down to highlight key moments.
18 MP photos show vivid detail, while an increased pixel size offers superior image quality and low-light performance.
Like a gimbal. Without the gimbal.
The ONE X uses the upgraded FlowState stabilization algorithm, analyzing movement in all directions to achieve a level of stabilization never before possible with a single device.
FlowState lets users capture impossibly smooth video with no accessories needed. Mount the ONE X anywhere – from a helmet to a selfie stick to a kayak – and footage comes out looking like it’s been professionally stabilized.
Shoot first, point later.
The magic of 360 is that it lets you choose the best way to frame an experience after it’s over – there’s no need to point your camera, and you’ll never miss a shot.
Using the ONE X’s simple editing app, users can easily reframe and re-edit the best parts of a scene, creating cinematic clips that would never be possible with a traditional camera.
Own the moment.
The ONE X’s new TimeShift feature lets users adjust the speed of different parts of a clip on a whim. Users can highlight key moments with cinematic slow-mo, or speed things up with a stabilized hyperlapse – the app always keeps playback smooth.
Combine TimeShift with the freedom to frame the shot in any direction, and the possibilities are endless. Users have total control over both time and perspective in their edits.
A drone without the noise.
Using the ONE X app, users can automatically remove a selfie stick from their scenes, leaving the ONE X apparently suspended in mid-air.
The result is the ability to shoot aerial angles without a drone. Pairing the ONE X with Insta360’s customized 10-foot (!) selfie stick leads to stunning possibilities.
Bullet Time. In 3K.
The Insta360 ONE introduced the unique Bullet Time shot, an orbiting perspective that puts a user at the center of an epic slow-mo shot. The ONE X takes this concept to the next level with a wider field of view and a sharper 3K resolution.
Throw them for a loop.
The ONE X is made to throw around. Seriously.
Creators can snap it into the new Insta360 Drifter camera dart, and send it soaring.
The resulting Drift Shots — airborne slow-mo shots enhanced by the full freedom of 360 — unlock impossible angles and create a mind-blowing effect.
High-speed WiFi for preview and transfer.
Users can connect to the ONE X via super-fast 5.8 GHz WiFi, letting them conveniently preview and control their shots in real time.
When they’re ready to transfer footage back to their phone for editing and sharing, they can quickly send it back over WiFi or connect directly with a transfer cable (Lightning, USB Type-C and Micro-USB cables come standard with the ONE X).
The ONE X has a removable 1200 mAh battery, ensuring that creators will stay powered up even when they’re far afield.
Natural lighting. In every direction.
Users can manually tweak image settings — including ISO, exposure value, white balance and shutter speed — to dial in the perfect shot.
The ONE X is also ready for HDR photos, timelapses, hyperlapses, interval shooting and timed shots.
Ready for the elements.
Two rugged case options for the ONE X mean it’s ready to go anywhere.
The Venture Case is a tough shell designed for above-water shooting, which offers splash protection and waterproofing to 5 meters.
The Dive Case is built to breach the depths. Specialized dome lenses allow for underwater 360 shooting — with a clean stitch – down to 30 meters.
Track your trek.
The optional GPS Smart Remote lets users control the ONE X, while automatically recording GPS data for video and photos.
This data can be used to easily upload video and photos to Google Maps Street View, and to add a customizable journey-tracking dashboard to video clips – overlaying speed, direction, elevation, location and route info.
The Insta360 ONE X is priced at $399.95 USD and available to order now via Insta360.com and select retailers worldwide, including B&H Photo Video. Shipments begin Oct. 17.
