Insta360 ONE R New Review – Amazing for blogging and Photography

The Bundle I Recommend

I recommend this bundle since it comes with the 1-inch sensor, 360 lens mod, multiple batteries, and invisible selfie stick. I made the mistake of purchasing all of this separately and it cost a little bit extra. This bundle comes with everything I personally need.

Key Features

ONE R Twin Edition transforms from a cool 360 camera to a 4K wide-angle lens with 60fps. Great for all kinds of vlogging and photography!

One R 1-inch sensor offers 4k at 60fps with 19MP or 5.3K 30fps on a much bigger sensor!!! Easily interchangeable with the other two lens mods.

  • Creative modes

Insta360 One R is able to do stop motion, tiny planets, time flip, cinematic slow-mo, stabilized hyper-lapse, and much more…

  • Deep Track

This camera has the ability to track its subjects during video mode. Great for sports and action vloggers.

  • Waterproof

Waterproof up to 5m (16.4ft) deep and handles rainy days well.

  • FlowState Stabilization

FlowState gives you gimbal-like stabilization without having a gimbal. It uses a new algorithm that detects the scenery, your footage will stay clear, smooth, and steady even in low light situations.

  • Invisible Selfie Stick Effect

Insta360 ONE R Invisible Selfie Stick feature allows you to capture low flying drone angles and creative perspectives while using the 360 Dual-Lens Mod. This invisible selfie stick is also great for taking 3D/360 real estate photography tours.

  • AI Editing

AI editing will stitch the photos in the camera for you. This camera also has HDR bracketing to help achieve the best image by taking three photos and merging them into one photo. One exposed for the highlights, one exposed for the shadows, and one in-between.

  • Touch Screen

This camera has touch screen navigation.

Pros

  • Affordable

As far as 360 cameras go the Insta360 ONE R is very affordable with great quality. I personally use this camera for 3D home tours for real estate.

  • Good app design

Compared to its competitors Insta360 has a very user friendly and easy to navigate app.

  • Flexibility with different camera modules

Insta360 ONE R Twin Edition can easily change from a 360-degree camera to a wide-angle 4K action camera with 60fps. All you have to do is swap out the lenses.

  • Great for real estate

This camera is compatible with Matterport, high quality, and has a selfie stick removal feature to remove the stand from your images. This is a great starter camera for real estate 3D/360 tours.

Cons

  • Lens is easily damaged

Personally I have broken one of these lenses. I was doing a 3D/360 virtual tour outdoors and the camera tipped over with a gust of wind and the lens was scratched by the pavement. Make sure you get a wait on the bottom of the stand to make sure it doesn’t tip over. If the lens gets scratched you have to replace the whole 360 mod which is the most expensive part of the whole camera.

  • Short battery lifespan

After using this product for a while I had to purchase a couple extra batteries. they are very cheap and are very important if you plan on doing a big property, blogging for a few hours, or a long hike.

  • Menu screen is not user friendly

The menu screen takes a bit to learn how to navigate and is very small. This makes it a bit hard to use with bigger fingers hahaha

  • Menu is difficult to access with One Inch mod.

The One inch mod is pretty cool but does cover up part of the menu screen making it nearly impossible to navigate during use.

Conclusion

In conclusion, I recommend this camera and personally use it to capture 360 virtual real estate tours. I think they could improve the product by extending the battery life, making the selfie stick heavier so the camera doesn’t tip over while taking stand-alone photos, and figuring out a better way to position the menu screen so it doesn’t get blocked by the 1-inch mod. All in all, it is still a great camera, very affordable, and offers a lot of really cool features.

Who I recommend the product to

I recommend this product to someone just getting into the 360 photography niche, an action blogger, and anyone looking for a creative way to capture their story.
