The Insta360 One RS ($299 and up) has just been released. It’s the successor to the Insta360 One R (reviewed here). How does the One RS compare to GoPro Hero 10, GoPro MAX, Insta360 One X2, Ricoh Theta X? Here are side by side comparisons of the One RS 4K Boost Mod, 360 Mod and 1-inch mod, plus comparisons for other factors including detail, dynamic range, stabilization, endurance (overheating), ruggedness, and other factors (14 in all).
Here is the review video:
Note: Unfortunately, it seems that YouTube’s compression was quite aggressive, so you’ll see many more compression artifacts than are actually in the original video.
Insta360 One RS is the successor to Insta360 One R, a modular camera that can be converted to a GoPro-like action cam, 360 camera for third person views, or a 1-inch camera. The key improvements of the One RS are: the larger battery, the faster Core mod with new Quick Zoom and fast access to Presets, newly designed camera bracket for easier use, and the new 4K Boost Mod, which has a new 1/2 inch sensor and has better stabilization than the Hero 10 in some modes, and has a 6K mode that is more detailed than the Hero 10.
If you want to get an action cam like a GoPro but would like to experiment with 3rd person views with a 360 camera, the One RS Twin Edition would be a good camera for you. Alternatively, if you already shoot in 360 but sometimes don’t need a 360 view, the One RS 4K Boost Mod can capture more detail and simplify your workflow. One RS is available here.
