Insta360 announced a new ONE X2. It’s a pocket-sized camera that’s capable of shooting 5.7K 360 video and utilizing FlowState stabilization.
Because the pocket camera is capable of shooting 5.7K 360 video, users can capture scenes from various angles. When you’re ready to edit your video, the camera’s app and desktop AI-powered features allow you to find and edit your best shots. Additionally, there are four shooting modes you can set the camera to—360, Steady Cam, InstaPano and MultiView. The Steady Cam mode is meant for capturing traditional flat videos, while the InstaPano is a new photo mode for panoramas. As for the MultiView, this mode displays two angles at once with different fields of view, ensuring you’re in the frame.
“With 5.7K 360 degree capture, the camera catches the action in every direction, so you don’t have to point while shooting. Just choose your favorite angle during your edit, or let ONE X2’s AI do it for you,” says Insta360.
The ONE X2 deploys FlowState stabilization when you’re shooting in 360 or Steady Cam mode. According to Insta360, the ONE X2’s stabilization and horizon leveling algorithms are “better than ever.” You can shoot “ultra-stabilized shots with just one pocket-sized cam—no gimbal needed.”
To have the camera track your subject, tap the target or voice command when shooting. After you’ve shot your video, go to the app or Studio. The Deep Track algorithm can track humans, animals and other moving objects.
Low light shooting
The camera’s PureShot mode improves the dynamic range of low-light photos while reducing noise and retaining details in the shot. Even underwater, the camera’s Aquavision feature auto-balances out colors, resulting in clearer underwater shots.
In terms of its design, the ONE X2 maintains the pocket-sized form factor of ONE X. However, it improves on the camera’s hardware and performance upgrades. It has a higher-performance 1630mAh battery that lasts up to 80 minutes. It features a high-def touchscreen and is IPX8 waterproof. So, you can take it down to 10 meters—33ft—without a case. With the Dive Case, you can use the camera down to 45 meters.
The ONE X2 sports four mics and can record stereo audio with smart wind-reduction algorithm and ambisonic.
Also, you can use the camera as a webcam. It can output video in a wide angle split-screen view on Zoom and other conferencing platforms. You can also live stream 360 degree video on platforms like Youtube and Facebook.
