Pocket-Sized 360° Video
With an upgraded 1/2" sensor and larger touchscreen, the Insta360 X3 360° Camera is capable of capturing high definition 360° and single-lens video with one portable action camera. The X3 offers an action-ready design with AI-powered software for an intuitive approach to creating dynamic content in any environment. Its rugged IPX8 design is natively waterproof up to 33' and has a built-in rechargeable 1800mAh battery for increased shooting time.
5.7K 360° Video, 4K Single-Lens Mode
Dual 360° lenses on the X3 can capture up to 5.7K video and 72MP photos with ease. You can switch to single-lens shooting and record 4K video at up to 30 fps. For extremely wide-angle 170° shots, turn on MaxView mode with 2.7K resolution.
AI-Powered Reframing
AI reframing tools automatically reframe your shot in 360° while you toggle between different capture modes. "Me" Mode creates the effect of an invisible selfie stick and films video up to 1080p at 30 and 60 fps. The effect creates the equivalent of 5.7K reframing and supports 16:9 and 9:16 aspect ratios. This AI interface eliminates the need to reframe your footage in post while capturing aerial angles and third-person perspectives, no matter the selfie stick configuration.
Audio Algorithm Updates
The X3 can capture stereo audio with reduced wind noise and 360° enhancement. Using four built-in microphones and an upgraded audio algorithm, the X3 records more natural and balanced audio than its predecessor. It also allows you to use Voice Control 2.0 to switch your settings when your camera is mounted out of reach on a selfie stick or head strap.
Ultrasmooth, Stabilized Footage
The X3 ensures your footage remains stabilized thanks to its 6-axis gyroscope and FlowState Stabilization technology. 360° active HDR mode is specifically designed for action sports like ziplining and mountain biking by keeping your video stable as you move while maintaining details in the highlights and shadows for more vibrant footage. Horizon lock keeps the horizontal plane of your video consistent and allows the camera to rotate freely while keeping the sky-line level.
New Recording Modes
  • Shoot up to 8K 360° timelapse and 4K resolution slow-motion bullet time video at 120 fps.
  • Pre-recording mode helps anticipate the action before it happens by beginning a recording 15 to 30 seconds before the shutter is pressed. This ensures you capture the exact moment you reel in the big fish of the day or surf the best wave. When enabled, the camera records audio and video continuously for the interval of your choice, but it only saves to your SD card when the shutter is pressed.
  • Loop recording continuously records video while simultaneously saving every minute of recording into separate files. This saves memory card space and can turn the X3 into a dashcam.
Upgraded Controls and Monitoring
  • A larger 2.29" touchscreen on the back of the camera provides a clear view of your footage as you shoot it. Four operating buttons with vibration feedback toggle between shooting modes for quick control.
  • 50% faster Wi-Fi and upgraded Bluetooth 5.0 technology provide faster file transfers compared to the previous model for faster editing with the iOS/Android app.
AI Editing and Photo Animator
Using the Insta360 app with your smartphone, you can easily edit clips for social media with new effects and modes. A regularly updated database of creative effects provides easy-to-use templates like Nose Mode, Sky Swap, and Street Lapse. Have the app turn your 360° photos into animated videos with the Photo Animator using AI facial recognition and preset effects.

This is a great 360 camera with great quality and supporting software. The only downfall it has is...how slow it is to turn on. For an action camera, moments count...this thing counts to 5 seconds before being able to record anything.

Simple and powerful

This little camera has the capability of shooting 4K+ log video, you can match your footage later, not to mention HDR mode with beautiful clarity. This 1/2in CMOS sensor works well in low light not perfect like the Sony fX3 or A7S III, but good enough and usable. The images are ultra sharp in daylight. It goes without saying, but must be sad. The stabilization is breathtakingly good. This can be used as a teaching tool, a blogging A-B camera, video demonstrations, or just having fun with the friends. the reason I bought the X3 is because I have a e-scooter and I love shooting video while I'm riding. You're able to tell your story in a whole new way with no limitations.

Best action cam ever!

The Insta360 X3 is awesome. It has a huge, responsive touch screen. 5.7K 360 videos and 72MP 360 photos are incredible. The image quality is great, clear and crispy. My favourite part is the mobile APP. You can turn the 360 photos into video animation, making it easy to share and upload to social media. The AI Shotlab gives the power of after effect to average people. I can swap the sky, make stop motions, and cinematic shots in just one or two minutes.

My first foray into 360. This thing is perfect

I've been a professional videographer for 25 years now and this is the first 360 camera I've tried. It's mind blowing to see what the options are open to me now with a 360 view to choose from. I no longer have to think so much about framing or camera movement because all of that is now done (chosen) in post. Amazing. I'm glad I waited til this camera came out because I didn't have to go through years of iterations an upgrades to get to the point of the perfect camera for me. This thing is incredible. 360 is a whole new world and there is very little learning curve with this camera. I have to say I was quite surprised when I opened the box and felt the camera in my hand, Its so strong and made of very high quality materials. You can just feel it immediately. And the image quality (in the right light) is excellent. Love it Just love it.

Great 360 Camera

By Brent

This is a great 360 camera. I purchased directly from Insta360 but should've purchased from B&H. I bought my accessories through B&H and the quick shipping was amazing. The camera itself is very fun to use, just hit record and move the camera where you want and reframe the footage later. It's a really awesome concept that Insta360 has really nailed. Being able to utilize single lens mode for normal 4k video is also a huge plus, you can bring this camera for everything and you will have tons of fun shots to play around with later and put together. This does require some post production work on the computer or more likely the app for reframing/exporting. I've owned a handful of action cameras and I will say this one is certainly the most fun to shoot with and get angles that you otherwise couldn't get.

Just okay

Despite an initial issue with updating the firmware (which required a few reboots of the camera and firmware update attempts, it was rather finnicky), it is a rather fun camera to use. The best part is being able to reframe your action, which a 360 cam allows. Two major draw backs in my opinion: 1. You cannot select how long the recording will chunk the file size on the storage card, so some files are 10+ GB in size. It'd be much better if it at least defaulted to 2-4GB file sizes. 2. If the battery dies, and this is a big issue, the file it is currently recording is corrupted. There is no software to fix this, and some mention sending in the files to Insta support, but I feel like that is a ridiculous way to fix a common issue. I've never owned a camera that had this problem, so it's a big surprising actually. Beyond those two issues, it is fun to use except I noticed the invisible selfie stick only works if the camera on the stick is exactly straight (ie: the camera cannot be angled in anyway), as well I found I cannot adjust the height of the stick after recording starts, as it reveals the stick then. The quality in 360 mode, despite being 5.7k is actually not great (feels like it is less than 1080p). It's not very crisp in my opinion and at times I see motion artifacts, I suspect it's due to the codec used in the recording format. The body seems well built, though a touch heavy. I do worry about the LCD screen getting cracked, but it's really nice having it so large and touch screen. The software leaves something to be desired: 1. You cannot do multiple cuts, or at least I don't see a way to so I export this out and edit in Davinci. 2. The keyframing is difficult to get right, and I mostly blame the UI for that. 3. I have noticed occasionally the video will snap from one location to another if there are too many keyframes within a certain amount of time. 4. The deep track isn't exactly accurate, and doesn't last long enough-- at least not in my use cases. Overall an OK camera.
