Insta360 One RS 1-Inch 360 Edition Brings Big 6K 360 Video To Its Modular Action Cam

From CNET: Back in March, Insta360 introduced its One RS action cam. It has a modular design that allows you to swap out the actual camera lenses, giving you greater freedom to experiment when shooting. The new One RS 1-inch 360 Edition builds out the line with a fourth option for creating immersive content. With help from its engineering partner Leica, the dual-lens camera module uses two 1-inch image sensors for better image quality, especially in low-light conditions.

Larger sensors allow the camera to capture more light, producing photos and video with less noise and greater detail and dynamic range. As far as handheld 360 cameras go, this could have the best video quality available -- and it still fits in a pocket. It can capture video at up to 5,888x2,944-pixel resolution and 30 frames per second. Or you can get 6,144x3,072-pixel resolution at 25 or 24fps with a maximum bit rate of 120Mbps. Much of the other shooting features are the same as Insta360's other cameras.

The increased sensor size will no doubt make this a better option for shooting outside at night or for some amazing sunrise or sunset motion time-lapses. It should also work nicely for anyone who wants to capture better details indoors without a lot of distracting image noise, which could make it useful for showing off real estate or other virtual tours. Insta360 also has a new mounting bracket for Rode Wireless Go mics, which is designed to disappear when recording 360 videos. The company's invisible selfie stick will work with this camera, too.
