Insta360 EVO CINEVOX Overview

Create stunning, professional 360/180° 2D and 3D VR video with the compact EVO 3D/2D Convertible 360/180° VR Camera from Insta360. The clever folding design allows you to shoot in two different formats: record 360° 2D video when the camera is folded closed with the lenses on either side and 180° 3D video when it is open flat with the lenses on the same side. The high-resolution EVO records up to 5.7K30 video and 18MP photos with HDR support.

When in 360° 2D mode, the EVO utilizes Insta360's FlowState digital image stabilization, which compensates for shake captured in your videos and provides you with smoother footage. Basic gyro stabilization is used when in 180° 3D mode, which helps stabilize some minor shakes. Stabilization helps greatly when using EVO's hyperlapse and slow-motion functions up to 100 fps.

In the 180° 3D shooting position the heavy-duty hinge is held open with a locking switch, and a quick release latch holds it closed in 360° mode. There are separate video and photo shutter buttons for quick and easy capture. Video is stored on a microSD card up to 256GB with a recommended UHS-I V30 speed class, and it is transferred through its micro-USB port. The camera is also charged via the same micro-USB port.

The EVO is VR headset-ready and the footage it records can be viewed in popular headsets such as the Oculus Go, the Samsung Gear VR, and the HTC VIVE Focus using the downloadable Insta360 VR app. The 180° 3D footage is fully compatible with Premiere Pro, so editing your footage directly out of the camera is easy.

Included with the EVO is a tabletop tripod and specialized 3D glasses to accurately view your footage. You can also purchase a separately available Insta360 HoloFrame to view your footage on your phone without glasses.

I am using it to capture movies and images in 3D while my family is still young, as far as utilizing and viewing the footage, I'm optimistic future technology will allow me to work with it. This camera only works when it wants to. If you are trying to view on a Oculus GO, you will need a lot of patience. I need to make around 20 attempts to get it to connect just once. Then it will disconnect for no reason and you'll have to start the whole process again. Tech support is text messages to China. For now I'm just capturing footage, maybe my kids will help me figure it out in 30 years. Also, the latching mechanism that holds the camera in 360 view is aweful. I need to force and fidget with it to get it to latch. For 3d cameras there isn't much out there to chose from so I'll have to deal with it for now.

The camera came bundled with great quality gear and was less expensive than I could find just the camera anywhere else. Shipping was fast and packaged well. Great experience!

The quality is good given the size of the sensor. The EVO lacks a small screen where I can see what I’m filming. The phone App takes a while to pair with the camera and is cumbersome to operate.

I like it a lot, really easy to set up and control exposure etc. But did not find a way to control focus, are at least have it sharp, seems pretty soft so far. Need to try different things, but i guess sharpening will help a bit.

Was the best consumer 180 VR Camera on the market

I was late in the game getting it and it's pretty much not available anymore. So, my review is not really about it and more about how glad I am that I found B&H. I originally ordered this from Amazon. Amazon never delivered it and it took almost a month to get my refund from Amazon. I started looked at other Stores and I found that B&H had it, they were cheaper then Amazon and I had it in one business day at a good price for next day shipping. I should have gone with B&H in the first place, a actual expert in Cameras. I was glad that my final purchase of this went to a brick & mortar store and not just giving more money to Amazon. I applied for a credit card account for B&H, it is through Synchrony and I already have account with them, so the process too a few minutes and I was approved for enough to make this purchase and pretty much any other camera related item I could even need. At that point I could find the other accessories I wanted with the Insta360 that I could not find on Amazon; because B&H is an actual photography specialist that carries everything you want, unlike amazon and their cheap fake accessories. I am so glad that B&H offers their insurance plans, I purchased one on this camera and it saved me. After a few days of owning it, I was taking 360 photos in a cave. It was uneven ground, and one of the feet of the monopod was a little loose. The monopod fell over and one of the lenses was scratched in several places. I was devastated. I contacted SquareTrade via their webpage, summited my claim, and a few minutes later I had a pre-paid shipping label to ship my damaged camera to them. Shipped it the next day and a few days later I received a notification that they could not repair the camera and would send me a check. I really thought they would send me a partial payment for the camera I just bought; but the check got to me after a few days and it covered my entire purchase amount for the camera. I will purchase one of these plans for every product I purchase from B&H, if it would have been the camera from Amazon, I would have been out $500 since they didn't offer any sort of plan like this. Thank you B&H for providing great products at great prices with amazing customer service. I already have my replacement Insta360 EVO and since everything was perfect with it's purchase from you I have ordered an Insta360 ONE X2 (w/ a service plan) from you as well as the accessories I need with it. The One X2 is backordered, but I will ordered a backordered camera from you before I deal with Amazon again, can't wait to get the One X2 and looking forward to utilizing you as my go-to camera retailer for all of my camera and drone needs.

Love it

The app is a bit of a pain to deal with on a VR headset (sideloaded the oculus go app on my quest2 to get a live feed) but the effect is absolutely incredible. 3D photos and videos never looked so good. and the added 360 has been really fun to mess around with in the app (one of the better parts of the app) exporting is the harsh mistress tho, at least in premiere pro, highly recommend checking out creatorup on youtube to help get the proper export settings before taking hours (or whole day) processing only to find the export is effed. all in all tho, easy to use, great images, insanely good image stabilization. I'd recommend it for sure,.

Is there a 60 or 90fps option? Seems essential for VR.
Asked by: Peter
5k at 30fps is really not acceptable, unfortunately that is the max this camera will output at the highest resolution. If you shoot outside in bright scenes where you can shoot in manual and have your ISO down to 100 and your shutter speed following the 180 rule and still have a good exposure the image quality is excellent. The only thing that ruins this is the 30fps. I dont even consider shooting at those lower resolutions with higher frame rates. What I found worked best for me is to interpolate the footage in premiere pro up to 90fps and it looks a lot better. To a trained eye you can still obviously tell its interpolated but it still looks a lot better than the 30fps this camera natively spits out. In premiere pro I use the flow interpolation method, in my opinion it seemed to produce the best results for my eyes at least.

Can this be powered by usb to extend record time beyond the 65minute battery life?
Asked by: Ron
AC is a little counterproductive to a device that's meant to be on the move. You could get a USB battery pack. That might help. But remember, if you are going past 65 minutes of straight footage, that's a lot to render in your workflow. I have one of the best computers that can be built off the shelf, and rendering our hikes can take a while.

Can you use an external microphone with insta360 EVO, if so which ones are supported?
Asked by: Marcin
This camera does not have a microphone input. To improve your audio quality you will need to do a two-system shoot, meaning that the audio is recorded separately from video and then synced together in post. There is a wide variety of equipment that will allow for this, and I would encourage you to give us a call at 800-606-6969 and speak with a Pro Audio specialist.

does the EVO have Bracketed Exposure for HDR environment map capture? (like the insta360 ONE X)
Asked by: Anonymous
Yes and no, it has auto HDR setting that will do a pretty good HDR image but I have not seen any setting for full HDR bracketed images such as 2 stops under and 2 stops over. There is also a manual setting that will allow you to create bracketed images that can then be exported as DNG to create an HDR image the old school way.

I want to convert the 360 footage to a 2D plane. What resolution can I expect when doing this conversion?
Asked by: Nicholas
I would think that would depend on the software used to make the conversion and what perspective and angle of view it used to make the conversion, I can tell you that a single 360 image is 6080 by 3040 so the conversion would be something less than that.
