Did you just get your hands on the newest Insta360 camera launch? Are you excited to go out on your next mountain biking excursion/camping trip hybrid and want to vlog the whole experience? Wondering how the heck you’re going to mount your microphone on your camera? Look no further than SmallRig’s compatible Frame.
Designed specifically to fit the new X3, this frame works to protect and expand the mounting options of your new camera to accommodate your preëxisting accessories. A folding-fingers-style mount allows you to utilize the camera’s built-in 1/4"-20 thread or a pop-out three-prong action mount. Then you can put the X3 on a selfie stick or handlebar mount of your choice.
Two cold-shoe mounts on either side of the frame and additional 1/4"-20 threads can support a fill light or shotgun microphone for your daily vacation diary—for crisper-sounding audio and better image quality. A silicone lens cap slides onto the frame to protect the dual 360 lenses when they aren’t in use.
The frame’s aluminum construction ensures it doesn’t add heft to your X3, saving your grip strength when in handheld operation. You can still access your camera’s ports and controls even when inside the frame for easy charging or transferring of files. The interior is padded to avoid damage to the X3 when you slide it in and out.
