Insta360 One R Twin Edition – The better GoPro?

With the modular One R, Insta360 has launched a truly revolutionary camera. Will Insta360 succeed in knocking the iconic GoPro off the action cam throne? Read more about it in this review.


Insta 360 One R with the “Invisible Selfiestick”
The Insta360 One R is made of plastic, but it feels very valuable. The replaceable battery of the camera forms a foundation on which the assembled module of lens and screen is clicked into place. Then the One R is ready for use. This assembly can now be clamped into a suitable holder like a rod, helmet or similar. At the side of the display module there is a cover under which you can find a USB-C port and a slot for the Micro-SD card. I find the decision to use a USB-C port for charging very practical, because you can use the same charging cable with which you charge your Android smartphone for example. In addition, the Insta360 One R is waterproof to a depth of 5 meters, which also allows filming at the sea and in the pool. So with the One R you are optimally prepared for any weather or activity.


A “Tiny-Planet” image
The general image quality of the Insta360 One R is a highlight in itself. The camera allows shots at 60 fps or a resolution of 5.7K with the 360° module, so every detail of the 360° shot still looks sharp. In addition, the app offers various routines to turn your recorded clips into interesting works of art. For example, there is the possibility to generate a stop-motion animation from a clip, an effect known from older episodes of “Sandman”. Or for example a so called “Jump-Planet” clip, where you jump from one “Tiny-Planet” recording to the next one. . The best feature of the One R is of course the modularity and, in the Twin Edition, the two lenses included. According to the Lego principle, the lenses are freely interchangeable, depending on whether you want to record a 360° video or perhaps a Vlog with the 4K wide-angle camera. According to this principle, the orientation of the 4K wide angle camera to the display module can also be freely selected. Depending on whether you want to record yourself or, something else.
