The Insta360 X3 may be the market’s most adaptable camera

Some of the funniest and most intriguing cameras in recent years have been produced by Insta360. And the brand-new Insta360 X3 is the same. The Insta360 X3 is actually very possibly the most adaptable action camera (or picture sensor) on the market right now.

The Insta360 One X3 and the Insta360 One X3 are both 360-degree cameras with two incredibly wide lenses. That capture everything around you and allow you to afterward “crop” the footage into a conventional movie. But because of several upgrades, it’s also much more practical to use in “single-lens” mode as a conventional action camera.

One of the primary issues with the Insta360 One X2 was that it could only take photos with a single lens at 1080p HD. On the X3, however, you can now film in 4K resolution while using a “single lens.” Which is similar to using two cameras simultaneously.

The X3’s adaptable 360-degree settings, though, are its main selling point. Additionally, it adds a new “Active HDR” setting and a new 1/2 inch sensor (an upgrade from the 1/2.3 inch sensor of the X2). The HDR video option of its predecessor was still available. But this one appears to use additional processing to reduce ghosting and improve stabilization.

The 360-degree photos produced by the X3 are still just 5.7K at 30 frames per second. And have the same 120 Mb/s video bit rate. The X3 can shoot in 4K at 120 fps or 3K at 180 fps, which are enhancements for its slow-motion modes. The X2’s comparable mode was limited to 3K at 100 frames per second.

Ideal for Makers of Social Media

As its wide-angle footage can be readily converted into a 4:5 Instagram post or a 9:16 TikTok video. Without suffering much from quality loss, the X3 should also be popular among social media makers. Comparing its larger 2.29-inch screen to the X2’s smaller circular display, it appears to be more usable.

The Insta360 X3, which costs 539.99 euros right now and is waterproof up to 10m, is a camera that has a broad number of shooting settings. In the “Shot Lab” of its accompanying app, it supports undetectable selfie effects, 8K time-lapses, 72-megapixel images, looping dash cam movies, and more. But the true test is if everything actually functions as intended.

Overall, the X3 is a worthy upgrade for one of Insta360’s best-selling devices. Anyone with an X2 definitely won’t need to purchase it, but for owners of an Insta360 One or One X, it might be a worthwhile investment. For anyone wishing to start 360° recording, it seems like a logical pick over the X2 given the screen size.
