Built to adapt. Built for action.

The Insta360 One RS camera launched in March 2022, two years after the Insta360 One R was released. The Insta360 One RS solves the conundrum by making 360 shooting an option. Additionally, it functions as a traditional action camera. A piece of gadget that can be used on an almost daily basis. What’s more, it might be the perfect device for cautious creators of the world of 360 videos. Furthermore, with the means to acquire an all-wide field of view, the 360 cameras offer an attractive option for creators. These cameras empower you to vlog, capture silky smooth footage around, and produce effective moving shots. It also allows you to shots exceptional and trippy videos and more extraordinary effects. Moreover, the 360 One RS is waterproof down to sixteen feet with an IPX8 rating (or more with the addition of optional accessories).

The 360 One RS camera comprised four major elements: a module with a screen, a bracket that wraps around and waterproofs the 360 One RS, a camera module, and a battery module. The secret here is the modular camera and the fact that it can be swapped out to facilitate different functionality. And when assembled, the 360 One RS camera is very much similar in look to a conventional action camera.

This camera comes with 4K boost lenses, which is the usual wide-angle lens in an action camera, the lenses along with Leica glass and a big 1-inch sensor, and the modular 360-camera. It also features the new 4K boost lens and a core module that is consistent with the original One R camera. So, if you previously have that system with the 360 lenses and/or the modular 1-inch sensor, then again you can upgrade at a much lower cost.

Total flexibility. No compromises. The only action camera that shoots mind-blowing 360 and wide-angle action shots with just the swap of a lens.

Talking of enhancements, the new core module in the 360 One RS camera comes with an add-on mic for superior quality audio recording. Added to it is the faster Wi-Fi at 50% range, a digitally zoom function whilst recording videos, and a smart menu system providing quick access to predetermined shooting modes. All these functions are well-loved upgrades over the One R, plus the superior performance of the new 4K boost module.


Though in slow motion the 360 One RS camera lags, the 4K boost lens module is otherwise an exceptionally capable action camera. The footage is better in quality to other current action cameras. Also, there is a new Active HDR mode designed to preserve details in the highlights and shadows while minimizing the ghosting issues often associated with HDR shooting. Moreover, the 360 One RS comes with a half-inch 48MP sensor, allowing you to capture footage at up to 6K resolution in a 2.35:1 aspect ratio. In a more typical scenario, at a 16:9 aspect ratio, you can capture 4K at up to 60 fps. But unfortunately, there is no 4K 120 fps option, yet the camera can capture 100fps in 2.7K and 120 fps in 1080p.

The most interesting part of the 4K boost module was the Insta360’s Flowstate digital image stabilization, which can now be applied in-camera while shooting. Before it is needed to be applied while post-processing. Flowstate is exceptionally remarkable and yields extremely stable footage. Additionally, you can also shoot high-resolution 48MP still images with the 4K boost lens module.

Zero in on the action with the 4K Boost Lens. Rugged and durable, with a new one-half" 48MP image sensor for more detailed 4K 60fps videos and 48MP photos.

The 360 One RS camera is perfect for capturing everything that surrounds you so that you can capture multiple angles from one clip when post-processing. The film looks fantastic on a small screen. For viewing on your phone or tablet it is great, however, the resolution breaks down on large monitors and TVs.



The 360 One RS camera features wide-ranging accessories, from dive cases to a 21% more capacity battery. Recently added up is the mounting support bracket, which makes it particularly cool to swap lenses and battery modules. It also has a windbreak that enhances acoustic performance. Another recently added accessory is the Quick Reader – a microSD card reader that plugs up quickly into the camera. These save files from the camera on a microSD and into your smartphone for editing. This means that there is no need to transfer files from the camera to your smartphone for editing. This significantly saves battery life in the 360 One RS and on your smartphone phone. And to be functional and robust, you will want this device to use this mounting bracket most of the time. But it must be noted that the assembled device would be large and bulky as compared to other contemporary action cameras.

Software and Connectivity

For a start, the wireless networking of the camera to the app is effortlessly automated in a way that eliminates all the frustration that typically prevented you from doing so regularly with other cameras. Insta360 has designed a strong range of software for Mac and PC, in addition to an Adobe Premiere integration and apps for Apple and Android devices. Though both the computer software and Premiere plugin are great, it is the mobile app that is quite incredibly stunning. It is especially handy for editing as it is an easy and fun way of editing 360 footage, a much better way of editing 360 footage than with a desktop. The creative tools for doing this are at your fingertips.

For everything videos, you can simply adjust what looks like tweaking the color, contrast, and filters. Moreover, you can add music, as the app offers a selection of tracks. More editing tools include the ability to slow down or speed up specific sections of the video. In addition, Snapshot lets you take pictures of a specific instant.

Overall, everything in the app is exceptionally easy to use which is great when controlling the camera remotely.

Battery Life

Power through the action with the new 1445mAh battery, now with 21% more capacity.

Batteries should last up to 65 minutes, One RS says, when recording video at 5.3K at 30fps. That is significant as compared to the GoPro Hero10, which can record 5.3K/60 fps video for up to 56 minutes. So, it has the Insta360 One RS beat in terms of frame rates.
