In the Last Few Years, 360-degree Cameras’ Capabilities Have Grown Substantially

In 2020 Insta360 began betting big on modular cameras. Instead of replacing its entire system with each product cycle, the company started making cameras that allowed owners to upgrade a single part of the camera they already have.

In 2020 Insta360 began betting big on modular cameras. Instead of replacing its entire system with each product cycle, the company started making cameras that allowed owners to upgrade a single part of the camera they already have. So even though Insta360’s latest camera, the One RS 1-inch 360 Edition, looks wildly different than its predecessor, the One RS, it is built on the same processor and software Insta360 customers already own and know. What makes this camera special though is its dual 1-inch CMOS sensors that provide 6k 30fps footage. Becca put it head to head with the GoPro Hero Max and Insta360’s own One X2 and One RS 5.7k 360 mod to see if that spec bump is really worth its $799.99 price.
