Insta360 One R review: How 360-degree video should be


The Insta360 One R is a build-your-own action camera that goes beyond 360. We tried the Insta360 One R 1" Edition and Twin Edition to see how the mods hold up.

Modular design ; Excellent stabilization ; Sharp videos ; Long list of extra features ; Well-built editing app ; Competitive price

Small screen ; Shutter lag ; Occasional bugs

Insta360 One R review


The modular Insta360 One R action camera lets you swap out lenses, but isn't quite as good as the GoPro Hero9.

Innovative modular design ; Multiple lens options including 360 lens ; Reversible screen for front facing option ; Impressive in-camera stabilization

Small screen size ; Clunky interface ; Needs frame for mounting ; In-app editing caused phone to get quite warm ; Expensive

Insta360 ONE R 1-inch Edition review


The Insta360 One R 1-inch Edition is an innovative action camera solution that won't stop evolving!

Top video quality and stills ; Modular, futureproof system ; Incredibly versatile ; Raw .dng photos and 100Mbps video ; h264 and h265 codecs

Small touchscreen display ; Small base battery

The Insta360 ONE R 1-inch Edition is part of an innovative approach to action cameras that helps it stand out from a crowded market. The modular platform gaining a 1-inch sensor raises the bar for what creators can expect from an action camera in terms...

Insta360 One R Review | Trusted Reviews


The Insta360 One R is a modular action camera, and while GoPro came up with a modular system for the Hero 8 Black, this is next-level stuff.

Largely successful modular design;Reversible screen is vlog-friendly

Flaky software and interface;Motion blur with low light and faster movement shooting;Video quality sub-GoPro level, but solid;Small screen is fiddly

Insta360 One R 1-inch edition review


It has a larger sensor than any GoPro, but does that make this 1-Inch edition of the Insta360 One R the action cam king?

Very good image quality Better in low light than a GoPro Lovely raw stills Modular flexibility

Lengthy clip exports Video processing niggles Small screen Software not hugely responsive

The Insta360 One R 1-inch edition is not as fun to use as a GoPro. But in the right situations, it can produce beautiful 4K (or 5K) video and excellent stills. Snap up the 360-degree and 4K mods and you have an action camera powerhouse on your hands.

Insta360 One R review


The Insta360 One R's modular design lets you switch between 4K, 360 and one-inch cameras. But does it work in practice?

It’s two (or three) cameras in one Solid 4K and 360-degree image quality Largely successful modular design

Sub-GoPro image processing Very small screen Significant bugs at launch

The Insta360 One R is a unique action camera that offers comparatively good value when compared to non-modular rivals like the GoPro Hero 8 Black and GoPro Max. Neither its standard 4K footage or 360-degree video are a match for those cameras, while...

Insta360 One R review: Lights, camera – action, action, action


Insta360's ingenious modular action cam gives you three filming choices in one device

Modular system works effectively ; Reasonably priced ; 360 module is great

4K module has multiple quality issues ; Slow to start recording ; Fiddly, small touchscreen

It is possible that Insta360 will issue a firmware update to fix all of these problems with the 4K module. I was initially supplied with the camera in pre-release form and, when it arrived, I had to wait over a week for the app and firmware to be...
