Insta360 has announced the ONE RS 1-Inch 360 Edition, a camera with dual 1-inch sensors and 6K video resolution that pushes the bar for 360-degree shooting.
The 1-Inch 360 Edition, which was “co-engineered with Leica,” enables filmmakers to shoot at the best image quality available in the business with a portable device. With conventional shooting rigs, it would be impossible for designers to quickly capture imaginative shots owing to their dual-lens 360 design.
The ONE RS 1-Inch 360 Edition has two 1-inch CMOS sensors, a big advance for creators. The camera can shoot 6K 360 video and 21MP 360 images. The 1-inch sensors are indeed the secret to the camera’s low light performance, giving an outstanding dynamic range from twilight to dawn. Other consumer 360-degree cameras have trouble with shadows and brightness, but the 1-Inch 360 Edition has accurate colors and details.
The ONE RS 1-Inch 360 Edition eliminates bulky shooting setups. The small size of the camera means that it can be used in ways that weren’t possible before. Creators no longer need to worry about where the camera is directed with two lenses. Instead, they can catch all the action in one take and then reframe it according to their vision. Insta360 makes sharing 360-degree or flat footage easy.
Dolly shots and third-person perspectives are feasible with panoramic 360-degree capture. Dual lenses remove selfie sticks from footage, resulting in clean, unobstructed shots. The FlowState Stabilization and horizon levelling algorithms in Insta360 make it, so you don’t need a gimbal to get smooth, level video.
With AI, creators can easily make remarkable modifications to the 1-Inch 360 Edition. The new PureShot HDR photo feature employs AI and intelligent exposure bracketing to boost the dynamic range of your shots, eliminating post-editing. Shot Lab employs AI to automate cloning, dolly zooms, and star trails in the Insta360 app. Creators can use the desktop software Insta360 Studio or an upcoming Adobe Premiere Pro plugin to fine-tune their work.
ONE RS 1-Inch 360 Edition can be used to make a time-lapse of the Northern Lights or a virtual tour of a house for sale. The camera’s IPX3 water resistance protects the camera from rain or snow when shooting outdoors, and its 1-inch sensors give exceptional dynamic range and sharpness indoors. Due to its portability, the camera can be installed on a car or backpack for Google Street View, on a tripod for virtual tours, or on a hardhat for construction site monitoring. The device will be compatible with Matterport and OpenSpace via an SDK.
