If you have any interest at all in shooting underwater videos or photos with a 360 camera, then stop reading this and get the new $99 invisible dive case while it’s available. Here’s why it’s a must-have accessory:
Until now, in order to get a totally invisible dive case for a 360 camera, you needed a professional dive case such as 360bubble Deep, which costs GBP4,000 (around $5,107). Now, Insta360 has made it possible to get a completely invisible dive case for just $99, a price that is unheard of for high quality underwater 360 video accessories. Even if you don’t have an Insta360 X3 (reviewed here), getting one just to be able to use the new invisible dive case actually makes sense, compared to purchasing a much more expensive professional dive case that is not totally invisible to the camera.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
- What is the depth rating of the new invisible dive case?
50 meters or about 164 feet.
- Can I use the invisible dive case with a selfie stick?
Yes. It includes a GoPro mount. If you want to use it with a 1/4-20 tripod, you can use a GoPro to 1/4-20 adapter.
- Can I get the new invisible stitching with the old dive case?
No. For the new invisible underwater stitching, you need the new invisible dive case.
- Can I use the new invisible dive case above water or would I need to remove the camera first?
You can use the new invisible dive case above water. There is a stitch setting for it.
- The case doesn’t look invisible on my PC!
Check the stitching settings and make sure you choose “invisible dive case” instead of “dive case.”
- I don’t see a stitching option for “invisible dive case”.
Make sure to update your app to the latest one. You should also update Insta360 Studio to version 4.8.4 or above.
