Several accessories for the Insta360 One R (reviewed here) are now available to order: the 360 module dive case, the vertical battery, and the boosted battery.
The dive case enables a clear, undistorted 360 view underwater. The dive case can also be used above water. To ensure correct stitching, you’ll need to check the correct stitching option in Insta360 Studio, i.e., “Dive Case (Above Water)” or “Dive Case (Under Water),” as the case may be. Please note that the case will be visible in the nadir of the shot, just as with the dive case of the Insta360 One X and Ricoh Theta V. Note also that to use the One R with the dive case, you’ll need the vertical battery (see below), which is included with the aerial edition but can also now be ordered separately.
The vertical battery base is an alternative battery for the One R that puts the camera in a vertical orientation. It is designed for use with the 360 mod. One advantage of using the vertical battery is that the lens becomes in-line with the tripod hole. However, the vertical battery base is not designed for use with the 4K wide mod or 1-inch mod. Moreover, the One R is not waterproof when used with the vertical battery. The vertical battery base has a USB-passthrough port, so you won’t have to remove the battery to connect the One R to your PC.
The boosted battery base is another alternative battery for the One R. It is similar to the standard battery but has twice the capacity. Besides the extended battery life, the boosted battery makes it faster to switch modules because it has a built-in foldable GoPro mount, so you won’t have to use the standard camera bracket. However, when using the boosted battery, the One R is not waterproof. In addition, you won’t be able to use the optional lens guards with the boosted battery, therefore you won’t be able to use the One R in rough environments.
