Insta360 Unveils First 8K Camera with Removable Lens Guard

Insta360 Unveils First 8K Camera with Removable Lens Guard
Insta360 New 8k Action Camera Lineup The X4

The X4 is the newest 360-degree action camera from Insta360. The $500 camera's capacity to record footage in 8K at 30 frames per second is by far its greatest improvement over the X3 model. When watching action movies on a screen larger than your phone, navigating around 360-degree footage on websites like YouTube, or clipping out a favourite perspective from a 360-degree film, that extra gain in quality and clarity can be useful. A brand-new 2,290mAh battery that can record 8K video for 75 minutes and 5.7K video for 135 minutes is also included.

Both 4K and 5.7K at 100 frames per second and 60 frames per second may be recorded with the X4. (The X3 could only output 5.7K at 30 frames per second and 4K at 60 frames per second.) If you don't want to record 360-degree video, there is an option that allows you to shoot via only one lens, much as in previous generations. (A 4K video with 60 frames per second will be used.)

With a 2.5-inch touchscreen and scratch-resistant Corning Gorilla Glass construction, the X4 has a bigger touchscreen than its predecessor.

The X4 has the same 72-megapixel still photo capability as the X3. Me Mode on the new camera records a 180-degree video while neatly concealing your selfie stick. In contrast to the X3, the Me Mode on the X4 is also offered in 4K and 2.7K.

With its detachable lens shield, the camera offers an additional layer of protection for the delicate lens, making it a potentially game-changing tool for photography in inclement weather conditions. The business promises that the detachable lens shield won't interfere with the 360 stitching process, in contrast to what some customers have encountered with stick-on lenses for the X3.

However, in terms of entirely new capabilities and enhancements, the $500 X4 camera could fall short. Becca Farsace delves at the implications of the X4's comparatively limited list of new features for the X line as a whole in this episode of Full Frame. Is it really worth spending the extra $100 on an upgrade if you already possess the X3? Has Insta360 reached its zenith with its most recent camera?
