For fans of extreme shooting at CES 2020, the Insta360 brand introduced an original device – the One R action camera, one of the main advantages of which was a modular design that allows you to quickly change lenses, ensuring comfortable work in various situations.
The Insta360 One R consists of three separate units: the main module with a monitor, a battery and a removable lens. The user gets the opportunity to easily replace the lens using one of the options provided by the company.
The following modules can be used as interchangeable lenses in Insta360 One R in various scenarios: for panoramic 360-degree shooting with aperture of f / 2.0, for wide-angle shooting of dynamic videos in 4K resolution with aperture of f / 2.8 and a lens for shooting wide-angle videos in resolution 5, 3K or 19-megapixel photos (f / 3.2). Leica participated in the development of the 5.3K wide-angle lens.
Depending on the lens used, two types of codecs are used: H.264 and H.265, and the highest bit rate reaches 100 Mbps. Insta360 One R also uses FlowState 2.0 special image stabilization technology. AI technology is used in color gamut correction, HDR control, and shooting process.
The price of the Insta360 One R modular camera depends on the lens equipment. For a wide-angle 4K lens it will cost them $ 288. A camera equipped with a module designed for the 360-degree shooting is estimated at $ 460, and for cameras capable of shooting 5.3K video, the price is set at $ 504.
