Below is a video with an image quality comparison of eight VR180 and 360 cameras, including the newly-launched Insta360 EVO (reviewed here).
I compared the EVO to these cameras:
– GoPro Fusion (in 5.2K and 5.6K mode). When it launched in 2017, the Fusion had been regarded as having the best video quality among all consumer 360 cameras. With the new 5.6K mode, will it be able to hold on to its crown?
– Insta360 One X (in HDR and non-HDR mode). The Insta360 EVO’s stablemate is regarded as being the best overall 360 camera by many reviewers, including myself as of March 2019, due to its excellent image quality and ease of use.
– Rylo (in 5.8k mode): The Rylo revolutionized the 360 camera industry with its amazing stabilization. With the new 5.8K mode, can it take the lead in image quality?
– Vuze XR: this is a relatively new hybrid VR180 and 360 camera, with 5.7K video resolution and some unique features.
– Yi 360 VR: this 5.7K 360 camera had the best video quality in 2017, although it was later surpassed by the Fusion. I included it in this comparison in part because it reportedly shares the same sensor and lens as the yet-to-be-released Yi Horizon VR180 camera.
– Kandao Qoocam: this was the first hybrid VR180 and 360 camera to be launched in the market. Although it only has 4K video resolution, Kandao keeps adding new features such as depth mapping.
– Lenovo Mirage: this was the first VR180 camera with 4K resolution. It is officially compatible with Google VR180, and uses the .vr.mp4 and .vr.jpg formats which do not require stitching.
