Insta360 One X Review – GoPro has HyperSmooth technology, Insta360 has a FlowState. The objectives to be achieved are both the same, namely to realize a very effective stabilization system.
This FlowState technology is back in the spotlight through a new 360-degree camera called Insta360 One X. As the name implies, it is the successor of Insta360 One which was launched last year, and with it comes a series of interesting updates. In terms of aesthetics, the One X design changed quite significantly. What had been all shiny has now turned matte, with a body that is thinner than before (28 mm). There is also a small indicator screen on one side of One X.
Behind its pair of 200 ° f / 2.0 lenses, embedded two Sony-made 1 / 2.3-inch CMOS sensors, each with a resolution of 18 megapixels. Why is the resolution down? Because the individual pixel size on the One X sensor is bigger, which means that the image quality in low-light conditions is better.
The resolution of the photo may go down, but the video resolution increases rapidly. One X is capable of recording 360-degree video in a maximum resolution of 5.7K 30 fps. If you are looking for a high frame rate, there are still recording options in 4K 50 fps resolution or 3K 100 fps.
HDR, time-lapse, hyperlapse, are all available on One X. Likewise the ability to ‘extract’ normal (non-360) videos after recording, so users can easily change the video perspective.

Regarding FlowState, Insta360 claims the algorithm has been updated so that the effect will be more pronounced on One X. Also unique is the Bullet Time feature, where the camera will record in perspective orbiting with slow-motion effects and this feature has a wider perspective and higher resolution (3K).
Insta360 One X Connectivity
Also One X Bluetooth connectivity also packs 5.8 GHz Wi-Fi connectivity that promises a faster data transfer process (transfer via cable is also possible). One X is equipped with a 1,200 mAh battery, with estimated durability of up to one hour when used to record in a resolution of 5.7K 30 fps.
Like its predecessor, One X is categorized as an action cam by Insta360. Therefore, if there are several optional accessories available for him, from the general to the quite quirky. The common ones are two types of casings: Venture Case to increase durability, and Dive Case for diving activities to a depth of 30 meters. Then there is also a 3-meter monopod that will not appear in the results of recording because the One X support application will delete it automatically, so the camera seems to be floating.
Another unique accessory is the GPS Smart Remote, which makes it easy for users to control the camera while it is installed, for example, on a helmet. At the same time, the remote will also record complete GPS data, including information on speed, direction, elevation, and of course location.
