Insta360 X3 Review: the best waterproof 360 camera

 

The Insta360 X3 is a powerful and waterproof 360 camera that's compact and rich with innovative features.

Review: Insta360 X3

 

Insta360 has been working to merge the world of 360 video with the action camera. The Insta360 One RS (8/10 WIRED Recommends) has an interchangeable lens system that allows exactly this flexibility. Still, changing lenses isn't the easiest thing to do...

New sensor and lens yield much better 5.7K 360 video. Great battery life. Large, bright screen. Can be used as 4K, single-lens action cam. Slim, relatively lightweight. Shoots 72-megapixel spherical images. Great editing software.

Difficult to mount to helmet or body. Any 5.7K 360 footage is still only 1080p when cropping to flat formats.

As with the company’s other cameras, the X3 connects with Insta360’s mobile editing app, which remains one of the best I’ve used. No, it’s not Final Cut Pro, but for an app that runs on your phone it’s impressive. Even if you have no idea what you’re...

Insta360 X3 Review

 

A half-dozen years ago there were a seemingly endless number of upstart camera makers jumping onto the 360-degree video bandwagon. Insta360 emerged from the scrum as the biggest name in all-around video. Excellent camera hardware like the X3 plays a...

5.7K30 HDR video Slim, waterproof build Big touch screen with straightforward interface Robust desktop and mobile editing tools Loads of capture modes

Video must be processed before editing A bit of a learning curve to grasp 360-degree editing Mobile editing app limits resolution

The Insta360 X3 uses two ultra-wide lenses to capture the entire world around it, and includes software to make 360-degree video more exciting.

Insta360's X3 360-degree action cam will blow you away

 

Review: This camera will make you feel like a magician and add a lot of unique footage to your videos. And it's a joy to use.

2.29-inch display is an excellent viewfinder ; Rugged and accessible design ; Insta360 software is basically dark magic ; User-friendliness is underrated

5.7K resolution translates to just 1080p video ; Software export times can be sluggish ; You'll want a large MicroSD card to store the 360-degree footage

I will never forget my first experience using a 360-degree camera. The Samsung Gear 360 which, to this day, collects dust in my treasured tech drawer, was slow, janky, expensive, and absolutely mesmerizing for photos and video capture. It was such a...

Insta360 X3 360° Action Camera Review - Gizmochina

 

The Insta360 X3 changes the game for everyone. At least for now, there's no 360° camera that works better than it.

Insta360 X3 Review

 

When it comes to 360 cameras, there are only a few companies that come to mind. One of which is Insta360. And with the company's latest X3 camera, they're continuing to innovate in the 360 camera space. Design & Hardware The Insta360 X3 (now sans One...

The bigger touchscreen makes it easier to use ; Great 360 video quality ; FlowState stabilization works great ; Rugged build quality and waterproof ; Video editing tools are fun and can make for some cool shots ; Good battery life

The highest 360 video recording is still limited to 30fps ; Flat video export limited to 1080p

Overall, the Insta360 X3 is a great 360 camera that also has the benefits of an action camera.

Insta360 X3

 

Insta360 isn't relenting on its crusade to dethrone GoPro just yet, releasing its third mainline action camera this year with the Insta360 X3

New, larger touchscreen is a game changer ; Me Mode can obtain some really impressive shots ; Fast UI with easy to read menus and icons ; 360-degree and single lens footage looks incredible

Single lens shooting still bested by GoPro, but only just ; Professionals will still want to use an external mic

The Insta360 X3 not only takes the competition to GoPro as an excellent single-lens camera, but it also shines in 360-mode for folks who love to shoot VR-ready content. As an all-in-one device, the X3 is an essential piece of kit for any vlogger.

Insta360 X3 review: An all-round winner of a 360° action camera

 

The result is the best small 360 action cam on the market

Easy to use ; Solid image performance ; Waterproof and rugged

Stitching still not perfect ; Not a generational leap over the X2

While it’s not a generational leap over its predecessor, the X3’s myriad of small improvements build on the solid foundations laid by its predecessor. The result is the best small 360 action cam on the market: rugged, waterproof, easy-to-use and packed...
