Insta360 ONE R: 360° Drone, 3D VR180, 1-inch Sensor Action Cam? | Hands-On First Impressions

Insta360 ONE R: 360° Drone, 3D VR180, 1-inch Sensor Action Cam? | Hands-On First Impressions

[Epic Music] Yes, I drop my camera a lot. Lucky my ONE R is in its Iron Man suit – well
the case kinda looks like Iron man. So my lens is fine. Hey, what’s up everybody, it’s your Boy Hugh
here from CreatorUp – the #1 YouTube channel dedicated to 360 virtual reality filmmaking,
for everyone. I have been shooting with the ONE R production
unit for almost a week now – and I have lots of hands-on experience to share. Insta360 is actually not allowing me to share
any of my footage just yet until January 14th – which is the official embargo date. So a full in-depth, technical review will
be released at 14th 10am Eastern Time. So hit the bell for the notification, and
subscribe if you have not. But they don’t stop me telling you what I
think of the camera. I am not going to bore you with an unboxing
video or reading press release like everybody else. I am going to be brutally honest to tell you
what I think, after I fly the camera, give the camera a bath in my fish pond, and strap
that camera on top of my Poodle and let him pee on it. Oh not the camera, just on me. Modular design – a camera trying to be ALL. So the biggest selling point of ONE R is its
modular design. It can shoot 360 video in 5.7K 30fps with
H.265 compression in 100Mbps bitrate. The 360 Mod has 2 F2.0 7.2mm equiv lenses,
and the casing is metal – not like ONE X – which is cheap plastic. And it can turn into a GoPro Hero 8 with the
4K wide angel Mod. It shoots 4K 60fps, and it is exactly like
Hero 8. In January 15th, they will also release a
1-inch sensor Mod co-design with Leica – with a F3.2 14.4mm equiv lens. I don’t have it yet – when I do, I will make
an in-depth review of it. This makes ONE R the only sports camera with
a 1-inch sensor – so if you are an action sports lover – that is huge. There are THREE packages you can buy right
now: Twin Edition: which including the Core, Battery
Base, Mounting Frame, Charge Cable, Lens Cap, Dual-lens 360 Mod, 4K Wide Angle Mod, which
will cost you $479.99 A 4K Edtion without the 360 Camera Mod, which
will cost $299 – It is like a cheaper version of the GoPro HERO 8, with exactly $50 dollars
cheaper. Then a 360 Editon without the 4K camera – which
is $379.99 – $40 dollars more compared to the old Insta360 ONE X. The Leica 1-inch sensor version will be $549 The image quality is def better than Insta360
ONE X with HEVC or H.265 compression on a 100Mpbs bit rate. GoPro MAX is 70Mpbs – so 30Mbps more data
than the MAX. It also has a better dynamic range – thanks
to the newly improved HDR video. I can’t show you my result until next week,
but I can tell you, it looks real good. Altho, don’t confuse HDR with the industry-standard
HDR – which is Netflix and all the other HDR display use. There is no HDR in VR headset and don’t even
bother submitting your Insta360 ONE R video to Netflix – it is not going to pass. I think Insta360 should change their marketing
language to better dynamic range instead of HDR. So all the other non-colorist non-professional
reviewers will not be making an inaccurate statement that the ONE R can do HDR. Well, it can not. Not by the professional standard. FlowState 2.0 – a better 360 Stabilization Image stabilization is crucial for any 360
camera. If you are doing over capture for action sports
– this really matters to you, more so than Image quality. You can’t tell 8K or 10-bit in an Instagram
Video – but you can surely tell bad stabilization – because you will get sick immediately when
you see it. I will have an in-depth comparison with GoPro
MAX and Kandao Qoocam 8K regarding stabilization – so stay tuned for that. The result is not what you think What really makes FlowState 2.0 special tho
is how it deals with low light stabilization by removing motion blur in low light. Let me show you. Here we have me running like a mad man on
3rd Street Promenade in Santa Monica at 11pm at night. What you are looking right now is captured
with the brand new GoPro MAX. As you see my face – it is blurry every step
I took. Look at the stores in the background – it
is like an earthquake. Well, a common thing in California, but not
that day. On the corner, we have a preview window of
the Insta360 ONE R. Again I can’t show you the actual footage – but I can show the idea
of how FlowState 2.0 work. As you see my face is crystal clear compared
to GoPro MAX – same as the store in the background. Scale your screen up if you can’t see it clearly. So it is no magic how Insta360 achieves this. You can also do that with any camera by going
into Manual, set the ISO high so you can keep a faster shutter speed – I mentioned that
in this GoPro MAX tutorial – to show you how to avoid motion blur in filming when using
GoPro MAX. But Insta360 makes this automatically turn
on and set the best setting for you when the camera AI detects you are moving in low light. So when you import the footage in your phone
or PC desktop studio, it will apply “AI remove grain” to remove high ISO noise. In the PC desktop studio, you have the option
to turn this off and use a better third party noise reduction solution. Insta360 uses AI machine learning to figure
out the best way to automatic remove noise for you, for free. Using AI to remove sensor noise does increase
rendering time significantly both in Phone or on PC with Nvidia GPU acceleration. It is recommand to have the latest iPhone
or Android Phone with A13 chipset to increase performance. Or run the option in PC desktop with Nvidia
GPU hardware acceleration. BTW, the new Insta360 Studio finally supports
ProRes 422 for the ONE R stitch and render. It significantly increases editing speed in
Premiere or FCPX with no compression and virtual no loss of quality. Thank you, Insta360. You finally listen to the professional editors’
requests. No more proxy is needed if you are on a Mac
or a higher-end PC. Taking 360 photos got an upgrade as well. Now introduce Nightshot. If you familiar with Kandao Qoocam 8K DNG8
– it is mostly the same. Instead of using 8 DNG, ONE R just decided
to use NINE and called it Nightshot. On the day of releasing, Nightshot merging
and DNG to JPEG export will work already directly on Mobile App in both iOs and Android – a
step ahead of the game compare to Kandao. How is the quality tho, well, you need to
wait till January 14th to find out. Arrrr, I hate the embargo. Trust me, guy – I so want to show you the
result. As a matter of fact, I reshot this entire
video last night and cut out all the sample footage. So I did not really sleep at all. But DNG 9 or Nightshot looks great – it really
hit Qoocam 8K hard on this one. I tho Kandao has this pattened – well, I guess
not. And don’t worry Qoocam lovers. Insta360 ONE R – even with Nightshot or HDR
photo mode – still only capture 6K 360 photos. Qoocam 8K captures 8K – so it still has better
details. One of the biggest complaints of Insta360
ONE X is not waterproof at all. So you can not bring it to surf, to dive,
or anywhere near water – which is half of the activity people do on vacation. Dive housing is great but not practical – they
are cumbersome to use and require special care to maintain. If you just want to do a quick and dirty dipping
in the water shot like this – ONE X is a no go. ONE R fix that. Even better, it can focus better underwater
compared to GoPro MAX. When I first received my camera, the first
thing I do, you guessed it, I drop the camera in my fish pond. I have a full 360 underwater camera comparison
with Vuze XR underwater housing, Insta36O ONE X underwater housing, GoPro MAX, and the
ONE R. Check the link here when it becomes available. So there is one drawback. The ONE R is a module design. When it combined together, it is waterproof. When it separated, it is NOT. And water goes into the little connectors
between modules. So after each water activity, make sure to
separate the modules as soon as possible to clear the residential water with paper towels
or dry clothes. Protect your investment and taking care of
your camera is very important. Are you a Mac user? If so, you will love the ONE R for audio solutions. Let’s face it. The camera should do camera’s job – which
is capturing video. Audio should be capture with other professional
capturing devices. ONE R allows USB-C to Microphone Adapter,
sold separately, to connect your professional audio equipment via 3.5mm jack and sync audio
monitoring using apple AirPods – which is pretty smart for 360 productions. Plus, you can control your camera remotely
using Apple Watch. Now you just got more reason to get an Apple
Watch and AirPods Disclaimer, I don’t own AirPods, and I broke
as XXXX – spending all my money on new 360 cameras so I can make reviews for you. So maybe give me a like and say thank you
in the comment session? Aerial Edition? Yes, you can purchase Drone Mod for both DJI
Mavic Pro 1 or DJI Mavic Pro 2. Here is the Mod for Mavic Pro 2. As you see, the installation is straightforward. There are TWO cameras separated top and bottom
right here. The core unit sits on the side of the drone
and the battery unit side on the other side of the drone. Combine TWO lenses, you can stitch out the
drone completely. Here are some sample footage shot by Insta360. The benefit of this setup is to film indoor
and low altitude flight. Before ONE R – there is no way to film indoor
as it will be impossible to replace the sky indoor or anywhere has objects taller than
your drone. I will receive my unit in a coupled days,
and I will run an in-depth testing for you. If you are in Los Angeles and want to collab
for some aerial 360 content – hit me up! Your boy is a Pro. ONE THING, I have to point out. The ONE R mod for Mavic Pro 2 blocks the GPS
sensors – so you have to fly without GPS. Which is pretty dangerous. So I will recommand to get the DJI Mavic Pro
1 version which will not block the GPS sensor. This thing is very light, and it won’t be
any issues. I will review both Mavic Pro 1 and Mavic Pro
2 mod – so stay tuned. If you are a long term follower of this channel, you know I specialize in 3D VR180 production. I have not reviewed a VR180 camera for a while
and here we go. ONE R is also a 3D VR180 camera. You can purchase 3D Mod and turn this into
a VR180 camera just like what you see right here. If you have the Insta360 EVO – then you don’t
need this. They are the exact same resolution – both
5.7K and has the exact same workflow. But if you don’t own EVO, and want to venture
into the wonderful 3D world and create content for VR headsets like Oculus Go or Oculus Quest,
then 3D Mod will be an excellent option for you. You do get H.265 compression, ProRes render,
and some sweet low light and HDR feature the are unique to ONE R. I will do a review soon
– so don’t worry. This is my personal favorite feature. Comment below, and tell me your favorite feature
of ONE R and which MOD you are going to get. So the most exciting thing is the upcoming
Leica 1-inch sensor mod. When I receive the unit, I will make an in-depth
tutorial. But during the exclusive interview with CEO
of Insta360 – he told me his teams are working day and night on developing the 2X 1-inch
360 Mod that with a longer CORE unit and bigger battery pack. This will be the prosumer and ever professional
solution of 360 filmmaking. It will probably be under $1000 and has better
image quality than even the brand new Kandao Qoocam 8K. There is no release date yet, and it is not
an official confirm information. But it will help if you comment on this video
and show your interests in the prosumer MOD – so Insta360 knows you are out there and
you want this. Your Boi will fight for it for you, if I get
your supports. Consumer: Better Bullet Time
Yes, this is a long first impression, as ONE R is featured-packed. I want to cover as much as I know, so you
don’t need to look anywhere else for more information. And these are all hand-on information as I
tried it all. Bullet time got an upgrade. Now, it keeps the horizon level no matter
how you spin it. This is great for people do not have crazy
arm strength and great for viewers not getting a headache watching your bullet time. It also has, what they called dynamic stitching
– which will correct the pallarax and color/exposure difference between the two lenses. (when one of them is facing the sun). Yes, ONE R bullet time is a lot better than
your ONE X bullet time. So Star Trail Photography is a very hard professional skillset. But now, Insta360 makes it a touch a button
for you to create the same effects. Sometimes, I am scared. Eventually, Insta360 will take my job and
replace it with AI. Look at this official result created by the
camera. It is pretty good. I am waiting to get to Joshua Tree National
Park to do one of this star trail and post a tutorial – so if you are a nighttime photographer
and live in California and want to collab with your boi – hit me up on Instagram. Let’s help each other out. already looks amazing, and it will prob blow
up on Instagram just like the Bullet Time. This is all AI generates with your phone with
a tap of a button – pretty crazy, right? So one common theme of this ONE R camera and its mobile app is AI-based. It is a smart camera that can do basic edit
for you, sometimes, better than you. Within the mobile app, you can click this
button to let AI figure out all the keypoint for you by recognizing people, points of interest,
landmarks, move cars, and cut the video for you and do the reframe animation for you with
easy ease and transition. It can point to track a target – like a snowboarder
– and train the AI to track it better. It can auto frame and auto timeshift for you. The App is really trying to take my job. AI denoise, AI tracking, AI reframe, AI color
with Color Plus, AI wind reduction for clear audio, and AI find my dog – like this video. Well, what is AI? Take Color Plus for example, Insta360 trains
their machines to learn all the popular Instagram posts, extract their color palette and apply
it to your video or photo based on similarity. If you are like me, don’t use color plus. Develop your own color palette and shoot with
LOG – which ONE R shoot beautiful and FLAT LOG. And edit manually instead of AI. Do things the hard way. It might take longer but that is every true
artist does. I think AI kill creativity and make everyone
lazy to learn new creative skills – BUT, as I don’t want to fall behind – I will teach
you how to AI edit with ONE R in the next tutorial. ONE R has voice control just like GoPro MAX
and supports multiple languages – not just English. It has quick capture and points to track for
AI tracking. The touch screen is tiny – smaller than GoPro
MAX or Qoocam 8K – but it is reversible – great for V-logger. And better than GoPro MAX – the touch screen
can pan around in 360 mod and has live preview. The 360 Mod has hardened glasses for those
of you – like myself – that love to drop the camera. If you are extra clumsy, put your camera in
your iron man case in all time to avoid scratch your lenses. Price
So Insta360 Twin edition – with 4K60fps wide angel MOD exactly like the GoPro HERO 8 and
the 360 MOD, it is $480 US dollars – compared to buy it separately like Hero 8 and GoPro
MAX – which together is $500 + $350, that is $850 US dollars. That is almost half of the price. Again, I am not saying the Insta360 ONE R
is necessarily better than HERO 8 and GoPro MAX combined. They are different cameras for different jobs. I love my GoPro MAX. I like it that I don’t need to assemble them
everytime I need to film. It turns on, and it just works. And I love the GoPro color – nothing can replace
my love for the GoPro color science. What will you choose? GoPro forever, or Insta360 ONE R.
If you own Qoocam 8K – you are lucky this time. Insta360 is not after the 8K 10-bit market
yet. So the Qoocam 8K is still one of its kind
to capture better photos and videos with a cumbersome workflow. Yes, I know. More tutorials on helping you to maximize
the Qoocam 8K is coming. Did I mentioned more cameras are coming during
CES. If you want to wait, I don’t blame you. I will report at Vegas tomorrow for the new
release cameras. Teche is releasing a new Professional 360
camera with 8K 10-bit 4 lenses setup. And Labpano is going to release Pilot One
– a new 5G network based 8K 360 Livestream camera that has real-time stabilization on
a drone like DJI Inspire. So you know all your options. But remember, it is not about what camera
you have, but what is your skillset as a creator, or a 360 filmmaker. Subscribe to learn more and hit the notification
bell for the next ONE R hands-on unbiased reviews, tutorials, and sample videos. Give me a like if you find this video helpful
and I will see you in CES 2020 or next week – January 14th – for the official review.

  1. Thanks for this review video, great info, excellent job! Looking forward to your sample footages. Tutorials would be appreciated too.
    Btw, voice control is fine but imho, gesture control is better. Would be nice to say have following gestures recognized as follow:
    1 finger = take photo
    2 fingers = take video
    5 fingers = stop
    For now, gesture is my goto shutter for selfies. I hope that would be implemented in our 360 cams too.

  2. Great news! Just finished shooting big walk in 360 and see news. Waterproof is the best feature, so now I can shoot walks under rain and snow. Want to see a footage from 4K module.

  3. Very Nice Video explanation (modularity is excellent versatile ideas but it costs more)…I think that in the next video camera comparison you need a long carbon fiber bar 😁😁 🙋🏻‍♂️

  4. Excellent in-depth review – thank you? Your review is the 4th one I've watched and no one has said much or anything about a desktop app. Does the R include a desktop app with ALL the same editing capabilities as the mobile app? The X desktop app does not do all that the mobile app does which frustrates the heck out of me!

  5. thx for the review…
    interesting insta360R
    1 inch camera is a bonus option 🙂
    looking for a new water proof 360 cam replace my old insta360 one x

  6. Great information Hugh!

    This is insane! Game changer for 360 users! It is a little confusing how the 2 versions work, changing lenses and stuff, even checking their website for the specs and comparison. I guess once with the hands-on the camera it would be easier. Two questions for you:

    1) Do you think you can create half a tiny planet with just one lens of the twin or using the 4k-1-inch edition?
    2) I have been having a lot of problems with the GoPro VR Reframe plugin for Premiere Pro and AE. It crashes a lot. Is there a solution for that or another approach?
    Insta360 has to come up with an own plugin for Adobe.

    Thanks a lot for all the content and info, Hugh! You are killing it!

  7. Honestly I’m only interested in the 1” sensor 360 mod. Going to wait for the embargo to life to see reviews, but I have a feeling the One R will not be as good as the QooCam 8k unless they give us the 1” sensor 360 mod. Give it to us Insta360!!

  8. Cool review, and can't wait to see the in depth review of the gear… hopefully that I can watch in headset! The larger sensor might be a good option to match footage of an A camera on VR pro shoots destined to headset desitribution. Also, it will be interesting to see how "modular" insta lets those products be. I know some of us would love to sync more than 2 cameras for custom rigs, and more fun situations… Can't wait hear what you see at CES!

  9. I'd love to own an Insta360 but I'd first need to upgrade my phone as they don't support the LG Stylo (mid-range phone). Any suggestions on what I can do so I don't need to spend a lot on a new phone?

  10. Still waiting my pre ordered qoocam to be delivered and may be this cam has a better 360 video quality 🙁 cry!!! Thanks for your video, as usual it's the best video for 360 camera

  11. Again! Awesome detailed first Impression review!!! Thank you for taking the time , making our buying decision easier!!!

  12. Interesting. Although I am still sort of confused on how many modules there are and if they all come together or need to be bought separately? Looking forward to your indepth review with footage. I was wondering with the new audio features and being able to use external mics if the insta360R made a good vlogging camera? And lastely, can you attach it to a dji mavic air? Or just the mavic pros? Thanks!

  13. Watched the whole vid! Great sum up and subbed! Asian invasion indeed !

    Would you be down to collab with food channel? Would be cool to do something like 360° food tour / food challenge 😮😮😮

  14. Thanks Hugh! I'm really interested in the 180 adapter. We shoot our show on the EVO in 180 and it would be great to see an improvement in low light, stabilization, and HDR for when the camera is moving. I hope this is enough to upgrade.

  15. Good work Hugh. You provided more info than insta360’s website and answered most of my questions. There’s a lot of confusion and chatter out there about this product. When the dust settles I think there is good potential in this product.

  16. EXTRA INFO (updated 1/7/2020 10:50am)
    Weight of each Mod (not in the official source but I measure it for you – necessary info for FPV / racing drone community ):
    – 360 Mod: 129g

    – 4K Mod: 121g

    – 1-inch Leica Mod: 157g

    – Case without lens guard (for FPV with minimum weight): 35g

    – Case with full guard and GoPro screw + mount: 83g

    Here how you calculate: If you want the lightest setup and you are really good at your FPV skill (aka you won't crash) – then 35g + the Mod you plan on using.

    For the rest of FPV or drone users, use the full-on case – 83g + the Mod you plan on using. So you can crash it and don't cry. Pretty crashable if you are in the *ironman case. Fly safe!

  17. To be honest, I have seen several Videos today regarding the R, but your one was best filled with important information about the functions. Nevertheless, I am confused. I have the EVO, the ONE X and a Mavic Mini. I cannot use the Drone function as it is only supported for the Pro drones. I wanted to buy the Max first, then I have seen the Kandao 8k cam and was impressed of the first Videos I have seen (however, there are not much of this and no one in German), I just want to update when it makes sense. Then I saw that Insta will release a new one. I am a bit disappointed that it is not 8k, the module Thing is also not mine, so i am not sure yet. Is it really much better than one X? the night shots of the X are not that really good, i wish a big improvement here (you said that the pics looks better with R than 8k).. i dont Need really that action cam part, i have a dji Osmo action (not sure if i  can compare them with eatch other). So Maybe selling my One X, ordering the R? Help me 😀

  18. The one R 1 inch Leica module supports the VR180 accessory. It’s on the one r 1inch page. Please test this! It could be the best quality VR180 consumer camera!

  19. Great video, thanks a lot but do you know if it will be possible to use two 1-Inch modules in 180 3D mode. I am currently using a Vuze XR and are looking for a solution to improve my footage quality.

  20. Very good video. Thank you.

    Please stay tuned with the VR180 mod. If the quality of the lenses and sensors corresponds to that of EVO only, the advantage of automatic dng9 and the dng HDR function and automatic exposure remains at ISO100 to 2s. Everything without cell phone connection :-). Hopefully the dng fish eyes are not on top of each other, since RAW developers are always designed with a lens on the sensor for error correction. That's why I've switched from EVO to VuzeXR for dng stacks. I'm waiting for test files to download.

  21. Creator Up – You are amazing. the footage you have showed with that drone mount is amazing and it kicked me hard to get Insta360 R. I love it… I need it… I will get it. Thank You. Greetings from mountains in Poland now.

  22. nooo, at the first moment I thought that I don't need another 360 camera (after watching Your Videos I bought Insta360oneX) , bur now I'm sure I want it. t
    motion tracking is awesome, drone mount for mavic 1, ext mic conn, MF2 in poor light conditions, what more I will love to have? 🙂

  23. Thanks Hugh for the VR180 information. You imply it's not an Evo replacement but that's using the standard 360 lenses. If your wallet is deep enough you can use TWO of the Leica 5.3k 1" sensor cameras to build a very hi resolution VR180 camera. Great review btw

  24. No one is talking about the fact that this in an action camera… You know, to be used in sand, dirt and grit. Let's see those levers, locking pins and clips all last in the elements. Moving parts and "real life" don't mix.

  25. Are you 100% positive that the AERIAL EDITION (Mavic Pro 2) blocks the GPS reception? This would be a no go … at least for me since flying the drone without GPS makes it incredible difficult to handle.

  26. On their website for the 1” version, near the bottom there is a picture of the 3D mod with two 1” cameras mounted side by side. It also says it uses “2 shooters of your choice” so I’m hoping this is a real option!

  27. Can you watch what the camera can see live on your iPhone? If so, can you also see it when you’re not recording yet?

  28. Damn I love your little twist with motion design in your reviews. Perfect sectionized and even timestamps throughout the review. Damn I love you for this xD Subbed.

  29. I am a gopro user and have the 360 one x also …. I use my gopro attached to my motorcycle and snowmobile helmets. This looks like it would be too comber some to hang off the side of my helmet. It looks like the only good spot would be on top of the helmet. Cant wait to see YOUR videos in a few days … great first no nonsense first look at this new insta 360 camera 👍🏻👍🏻

  30. It's so hard to decide between Qoocam 8K and the Insta360 One R. I want high quality in fast motion for sport footage.

    I would have preferred 8K, because you would lose resolution at

    zooming in post processing. I'm not sure if Qoocam 8K is better or worse then Insta360 One R or should I wait for the 2x 1 inch 360 combo? Do you think I can easy upgrade (economical) to this combo?

  31. I already get great footage with my Insta360 one X so the R should be dope

  32. Great video there Hugh a lot of work put into that. Very interested in the drone attachment. Were you saying that you could actually use the drone attachment for the Mavic pro on the Mavic 2. Will it fit okay

  33. Another amazingly good and informative video, Hugh! Between you and Mic at 360Rumors, I'm always set.
    I'm especially happy to hear that there's a VR180 mode, but unless they can add the 1" sensor modules to that mix, I don't see much of an improvement over the Vuze XR and Insta360 EVO. Definitely some benefits (H.265, etc.), but not enough to justify the cost. But… your mention of a possible prosumer 1" 360 gives me hope for a prosumer 1" VR180, and that is something I'd buy just for the low-light abilities. 5+K is a disappointment vs 8K, but a 1" sensor would alleviate some of the pain.

  34. This is the best review on YouTube. Do you know if you can output a .hdr file with the 360 images, or does it combine them all in the software. Looking for something to create 360 images for 3D environment maps. I currently do it with my very old theta, but output all the images using a 3rd party app to get multiple exposures.

  35. Bro do the best comparision
    1.stabilization in both 360and4k mode there horizon level like gopromax
    3.battery life also at cold winter…
    4.battery rechangeable will be sell like insta360 one x???
    5.also at starlapse needs more time so what about battery for ex. By dslr milky way shoot takes from 9pm till 7am so….
    6.voice at windy weather it really invisible as insta360 one x cause case as gopromax so gopromax not so invisible as insta360 one x
    8. Need we 1inch mode if yes so compare 1inch with 4k
    9. Thanks))

  36. Thanks Hugh! Your 360° videos are the best on youtube 🙂 I am going on vacation end of January and would like to buy a 360 camera for that.
    I will be mostly creating some content for instagram on my phone on the go and create a video when I am back in premiere pro. What camera would you recommend the most at the moment? Really apprechiate your answer!

  37. Thank you, can't wait to see the footage and final review. Looks like I might try and get this plus the Qoocam 8k

  38. My boy Hugh with another banger video! My favorite VR creator on YT and the only one with all the pro tips.
    You mentioned that the 180VR specs are pretty much the same as the EVO, does this mean that this camera wont have a configuration that will allow it to do 5.7k at 60fps? Its the only feature i wish the Evo or a camera that size had. For now I guess we have to keep waiting for the production version of the K2 Pro to come out. You should try to get your hands on the K2 Pro pre production camera Hugh. Would love to see a real pro get the most out of that unit.

  39. I have to give it to Insta360 for thinking outside the box. I like the modular concept but thought one would be able to separate the 360 camera and have the option to utilize your phone for making settings. The 1” monitor is added weight to me. I hoped it to be optional. Now why in the world would they change to a GoPro style mount?
    The footage from my GoPro Max while I’m skiing has a whistling to it due to the air flowing through the slots and across the setting screw. Not very clever. The 1/4 “ threaded mount has the least obstructions. Still, Insta360’s innovation is almost making a mockery of GoPro’s slow evolution.

  40. Thanks for another really good video. I have three questions, it has a dive case for 360 use? ,it can be charging while it’s recording? 60min of battery life?

  41. 3D 180 favorite feature… here is the challenge.. i really wonder (can you show us) how the 3d little planet or 3d jumping planet will look like SBS recorded and rendered with this set… what kind of post-processing needed, do we need Premiere or the Insta studio or Android App can do the jo? I also have 3d multipoint screen where rendering plate recognize mp4 sbs but 264 coding.. would be this a problem or the 265 coding could be exported to 264 easily? SO MANY QUESTIONS…

  42. I really hope to see 3d180 solution with two 1 inch leica sensors. That together with prores and high bitrate would be a great upgrade for my evo.

  43. Great thanks for the first impressions and the not obvious 180 3D feature info on the Insta360 ONE R.

    Insta 360 should really address a prosumer pruduct category – that steps up from the just acceptable 360 video status that GoPro Fusion enabled 2 years ago! No significant IQ improfement since than. Today we appear to be stuck to a lot of processing effort for todays just usable 360 videos.
    I am desperately waiting for a 360 (best with +180 / 3D) camera <850€ that really delivers Hi quality video – that we are used to everywhere else!
    To Insta360 please provide us a 1" sensor 360 camera which really steps up from the current status of "just usable" 360 videos!

    Greeting from Germany – and keep up the good work Hugh!

  44. Thanks for the thorough walk through! Overall looks like there are a lot of software related improvements, which I hope can be ported over for use with the one x (better stabilization in low light, better editing app). Any idea if they have plans to share these advancements with one x users?
    Also a bit disappointed in the 1" sensor, since it is only for action cam mode (at least atm). On their website, there is a picture of it being used paired with a second 1" sensor for stereoscopic, but the 1" sensor lens doesn't look to support the wide angle required for VR180 (hope I am wrong here). Furthermore, the current mount for their stereoscopic is built in a way where the processing unit is on the back instead of below. This looks to eliminate any possibility for using two 1" sensor modules paired for 360 video/images (hope that they have a solution for this, b/c 1" for 360 would be just amazing!

    Ideal setup:
    – Core module
    – 2x 1"sensors
    – Module to pair the 2 1" sensors for both 360 or 180 vr
    – Extended battery module
    – Waterproof housing on the above setup

    Please let this be a possible setup, else am gonna have a hard time justifying buying a one R, since I would mostly use this for 360 😟

  45. Can't wait to see how stitching compares to the One X with Venture Case. I use my One X for kayaking and snowboarding and have been disapointed with the stitching while using the case.
