The Insta360 X3 is a camera that has revolutionized how we think about capturing video. I recently purchased one to add to my collection of cameras and the 360 camera. Its unique feature allows it to shoot a 360-degree video that can be edited and reframed to create custom videos with a professional look. The camera body has two high-resolution sensors, each recording a wide-angle video that stretches beyond 180 degrees.
INSTA360 X3 - 360 VIDEO & STILLS ACTION CAMERA
The Insta360 X3 is a camera that has revolutionized how we think about capturing video. Its unique feature allows it to shoot a 360-degree video that can be edited and reframed to create custom videos with a professional look. The camera body has two high-resolution sensors, each recording a wide-angle video that stretches beyond 180 degrees. The camera then stitches the two feeds together, creating an invisible ball of 360-degree video-capturing goodness.
The FlowState Stabilization uses AI to find a horizon and keep that level, locking on a target somewhere in that video sphere. This camera is not just for shooting spherical video; it is a sphere of the video where you can choose any piece of that sphere to point at and use. The Insta360 X3 is waterproof, has a new 1/2-inch sensor and can shoot 5.7K 360 video with HDR or 8K time lapses if desired. With the Insta360 app, you can do all the editing and post-production on your phone. With accessories like the reader accessory and mic jack accessory, you can add a little bit of production quality to the already pretty solid camera. Loop Recording is a smart feature that records every 30 minutes, which is useful if you’re using it as a dashcam. The only weakness is that if you put the subject right on the seam where the two cameras are recording, you can get some distortion, but it’s pretty easy to shoot around that.
The Insta360 X3 is the most versatile camera that can be used for a wide range of creative ideas like first-person driving shots and selfie stick outside-of-the-car shots, and much more. This camera is ideal for anyone looking to create professional-looking videos on the go.
With its brand new 1/2″ sensor, the X3 allows you to capture photos and videos with more detail than ever before. Take 360-degree photos with 72-megapixel stills and shoot first-person videos in Single Lens Mode, now upgraded to 4K 30fps. You can also shoot an extremely wide 170° video with MaxView at 2.7K resolution.
The X3 also comes with a bigger and better battery, a 2.29″ touchscreen with tempered glass, vibration feedback, easy-to-use buttons, and a voice control 2.0 feature that enables you to control the camera when it’s out of reach. You can also transfer and edit your files faster with 50% faster Wi-Fi transfers compared to the X2.
Included in the Professional Kit is the Insta360 Invisible Selfie Stick, which disappears in your edit, enabling you to capture aerial angles and third-person perspectives that are impossible to achieve with other cameras. The extended length reaches up to 70cm. The X3 Lens Cap, made from a durable silicone to match the contours of the camera, protects the lenses of your Insta360 X3 camera on the go. The X3 Case, perfect for travel, protects your camera when unused, preventing accidental scratches and general camera wear in a pocket or bag. The kit also comes with a 64GB MicroSD Card.
In addition to these features, the X3 is also rugged and IPX8 waterproof, allowing you to take it on any adventure. You can even shoot 8K 360 timelapse videos and enjoy Flowstate Stabilization to capture smooth, stable footage.
The box includes the Insta360 X3 Pocket 360 Degree Action Camera, charge cable, protective pouch, quick start guide, lens cloth, selfie stick, carry case, lens cap, and 64GB Micro SDXC.
