360 Camera Techniques

Insta360 One R Night View mode sample, tutorial and analysis

Here is an in-depth look at the Insta360 One R‘s Night View mode by award-winning panoramic photographer Yuqing Guo, with some samples and a tutorial on how to shoot and stitch Night View photos.

Night View / Nightview / Night Shot is a unique feature of the One R that takes a burst of nine photos in Raw + JPG. The first eight shots are at the same exposure, while the ninth shot is underexposed by 4EV to capture highlights. The first eight shots are combined using median stacking to average out the noise, and the stacked photo is fused with the highlights from the ninth shot. The result is a high quality photo with low noise and excellent dynamic range.

This mode is available for any module of the One R including the 360 module, 4K Wide, and 1-inch mod.
