Insta360 Launches New ONE X2 360-Degree Camera

Insta360, known for its line of cameras that are able to capture 360-degree photos and videos, today announced the launch of the next-generation Insta360 ONE X2, a followup to the Insta360 ONE X.

The Insta360 ONE X2 features the same familiar rectangular shape with 360-degree lens, but there are several additions, including a small preview screen that lets you see what the camera sees while also offering touch gestures.

The ONE X2 captures 5.7K 360-degree video, there's a larger 1630mAh battery, four microphones for better voice capture, and IPX8 waterproofing, so it can be used for capturing underwater content.

There are multiple shooting modes, including 360, Steady Cam for making flat videos, InstaPano for creating panoramas, and MultiView for displaying two angles at once. 360-degree video can also be edited using the Insta360 iPhone app to pull out the most interesting parts of videos.


FlowState stabilization is designed to keep the Insta360 ONE X2 steady, with new stabilization and horizon leveling algorithms for smooth video even without a gimbal. Like prior Insta360 cameras, the ONE X2 comes with a selfie stick that the Insta360 intelligently edits out.

Other features include built-in app templates for adding cinematic video effects, subject tracking, AI-based video recommendations, and TimeShift hyperlapse videos where playback is adjusted.

The Insta360 ONE X2 can be ordered from the Insta360 website today for $430.

"known for its line of cameras". I have never seen or heard of these actually being used. Doesn't seem that well known. Does anyone actually use them? For what? Sincere question.

these are THE 360 cameras of the last 2-3 years, gopro has a similar camera that isn't as good. anyone looking for a 360 camera has heard of them... but the problem is 360 cameras are still very, very niche. this new camera is the best of its kind for now.

Yes, people know of them and use them.

Are they universally known? No, of course not, they're not a household name.

360-degree cameras allow you to shoot scenes that a) you can't easily get any other way and b) allow you to re-edit gaze after the shooting is done. So, they have some fundamental advantages over traditional cameras.

Not so say that they don't have shortcomings, which they do. But it's a neat new way of getting unique shots.

I personally do not like the fish eye effect.
I have a GoPro and that can be switched to a linear mode which has no distortion at all.
You don't get fish eye at all - unless you want it.

They're sold in Apple stores. Not sure how many they sell, but they're there.

Yet another "One" product, along with:
Palm One
Nokia 1
Capital One
OneDrive
OneNote
XBox One
Beats 1
Apple One
Google One
Cisco ONE
Backbone One controller

Have these marketing departments run out of creativity or just stopped caring? When is this insipid “One” fad going to die?
