How do I buy it?

You solved the riddle to cross the bridge, then defeated an orc who carried enough gold to fund your purchase. A farmer came along and give you a ride into town. Along the way you and the farmer's daughter fell deeply in love and decided to marry. The ceremony took place high on the rim of a volcano where the white goat was offered as sacrifice. See the dramatic events unfold before you, you decided to hike into town to buy a means of capturing these events. Presenting the gold taken from the slain orc, you as the shopkeeper for an Insta360 One X.

Is it water resistant enough to use during a snow storm or would you need to buy a waterproof case? Will be using on a back country ski trip

I would strongly recommend purchasing a case. Not to mention as RB stated, the camera has two bulging lenses that will catch droplets. Now if Insta could offer a simple venture case for the camera, that would be great, but instead this disfunctional company cannot fulfill venture case orders over 3 months after purchasing the camera. I truly regret buying this camera, I hate supporting a company who cannot meet demand on something so simple as a case (other than their overpriced dive case), you might think that a simple case is not critical but when you have two bulging lenses, it is very much needed as you cannot even set your camera down without worrying about scratching the bulging lenses. Wished I would have used common sense and purchased a Gopro 7 instead!!

When i import video files to studio and play them they are all laggy. anyone else having that same issue? or is it my onex that's the issue?

It depends on what the resolution of the video is and how fast your computer is. If your capturing 5.7k files you need a pretty decent machine to handle the workload.

What is the largest sd card that this can use? (in gb)

400gb sandisk works fine.

What is the max file size per video clip? Does it split a video clip into multiple files if there is a max file size?

In my experience, it records 30 minutes (11.34 GB) at 5K before it spans to a new file automatically. However, you lose almost six seconds of video in between the two clips. In other words, it takes six seconds for the camera to start recording the second spanned clip.

     Update (10/25/18): a video with my cat using the one X.I pre-order on Amazon and it arrives it on 10/19/2018. First thing I want to say, the Insta 360 One X beats Gopro completely. Because it’s 360, the video stabilization is amazing. I can point it what every angle I want and it will just capture everything without any issue.In the past, I need to use multiple Gopro and spend lots of time on editing. By using the Insta 360 One X App, I did two amazing videos in the afternoon I received it. Totally a game changer. I believe I can make a lot more awesome videos for my snowboarding now.Pro:1. Record first, think after2. Very stable when checking objects3. Light Weight4. Lost of fun ways to enjoyCons:1. Battery capacity is not satisfied2. A light press on the power button will turn on the camera, it got accidentally turned on in my bag couple times. Hope future firmware can change it to a long press.3. Not water resistant

    One X – Not ready for prime time or what? Dear all and mostly Insta360, I own a Air and also purchased and returned the ONE as it has issues. Now I bought a One X and I have to ask, did you rush this to market or what?Not only does YouTube not work on a Google Pixel XL as it reads “Network Problem” when you press CONFIRM, (Tested on 3 phones) but who thought this thing up with using a SPECIAL USB cable needed to connect to the camera that also does not allow the unit to use the phones battery? Major issue here when you want to stream live as the battery has a short life and you can not power it and stream at the same time. Are you now going to release a special cable adding yet more cost to this camera?Why you would not have the camera connect to Wi-Fi directly and use the Internet is beyond me. But even if you did not do that, you could have at least let the user connect to the One X via Wi-Fi and then used the phones 4G LTE connection to stream. But nope that is not even an option. How do you expect people to use this when out and able to live stream with such a short cable? This could have bee so much more and I actually expected more out of such a powerful camera.If I could live stream on YouTube, which is why I bought this camera, I would be looking to do so via 4K and not the low resolution that your other products do. YouTube allows for 4K 360, so as long as you have the bandwidth, so why would you limit to such a low resolution?So the BIG flaws are non-working APP features. The very poor battery live and no way to power the camera and use live streaming (if I could). And the low res streaming even though this is marketed as a 5.7K device. And to think, I just got this today and I already found these issues.To make matters worse, it does not even work with Google Street View via Wi-Fi and you also need to purchase a separate remote to be able to get GPS information even though this is already built into every smart phone! All you are doing is making ways to make more money from an already costly camera that you have crippled.I am not sure how you got so many good reviews for this product. My only guess is that you bought the reviews or gave away free product for good reviews. But the Insta360 One X surely was not ready for release and the need to use special cables is just a slap in the face to your consumers.UPDATE – Insta360 is a company that actually listens to feedback and responds. I gave them one new star just for the pure fact that they do respond and try to help and actually rolls out releases is great. I then added another star for as of ver 1.0.6 of the software fixed a few of my findings and then 1.0.7 fixed some more that I did not even list here but told them about. YouTube Live Streaming now works which is great. Some of the above is still true and are issues, but I am still hopeful for a new cable that allows you to power the camera as well as the phone needed for USB to pass data. (To stream you must connect via USB) As mentioned above, you are kind of stuck if you want to livestream as you are as only as good as the battery in your phone or camera. They are also looking into improving live stream resolution to be 4K capable as It is typically possible on YouTube. So I went from 2 to 4 at this time as they are listening and doing what they can. So thanks Insta360, the ONE X will end up being “the 360 camera” to buy.

    Highly recommended

    So, why did I leave a 3 star when I say is a great camera… Well, Because hopefully I will come back in about a month and add one star then add another by early 2019.The camera, resolution, quality of image and video and pictures all great, it is what they say, shoot now, point laterIs a great camera to record pics and videos and “always” be in the pictureSo, why docking stars…the app and the PC/MAC App…buggy, not there yet, lots of limitations and many “work around” Yes, is usable, the team updates the cam and the apps almost weekly…but again, there are many limitations that should have been ironed out prior to the release, like having to set you phone into airplane mode to connect the camera.Is an action camera….is a 2 protruding lenses action camera…yet, here we are…no case available for it yet, site keeps saying “soon” Not even a stand or somewhat to place the camera while charging or moving files, other than a pouch that the minute there is a bit of dust in it, will scratch the lenses. Whoever approved the final design, while is a awesome design, should have added a case and stand…yet, none is availableH.265…nope, not availableYou are basically forced to use the app for everything, yet, no 5K video from it and no GPS tag….unless you buy another non existent (yet) accessory…wich we still waiting for.Battery life…ok, if you are lucky…I got 43 min max… want a spare battery…as noted before…not available yetDurability, again…is supposed to be a “action” cam, yet…no way to protect the lenses, any simple scratch and you have a $400 paperweight…again, would be ok with a case…or better if someone will come up with lens protectors.Make sure you have a fairly new smartphone with plenty of internal memory, as the app WILL NOT save to SD card, so basically for all of us with awesome 256 gig cards installed, they are useless as every time you same a pic of video, it goes to internal memoryiOS folks, you are in luck, you can use any mobile device… phone or tablet… Android…we are limited to mid to top end phones and tables…good luck finding one that meets the minimum requirements.

    The problem I had with this camera was that using its Insta360oneX studio, to convert videos to MP4, it would not export video with a picture, just sound. I was on chat with their tech support for a few hours. They asked questions about my computer, ect. Finally they wanted me to download a program that would allow them to have control of my computer. That is mental. No way. I have read online how others have had the same issues with no solution. The Studio is still in beta, so they obviously rushed this to market before they got the bugs out of it. I would wait a couple years to buy it, by then maybe they would get their act together.

  6. gradplanner

    This camera is awesome to use. The videos quality is really good. Coming from a 360fly to this is very satisfying. I enjoy making movies with this. As for the software, it needs work especially for Android users. Now this company should take note because what’s the use of having an awesome camera if we can’t use it do to software crashes. But, this review is about the camera and not the Android software.

  7. patsreefs

    Awesome little 360 cam. Fairly lightweight and easy to use, the quick capture is a great option to simply push the button and start making videos. Very comparable to the Fusion but a lot more user friendly. Final video product is 1080p and is very clear and sharp. HDR photos look fantastic! Battery life is average (could be better) but doable. After-market batteries work fine and are a good investment, if you use this while traveling and are out all day you will not survive with jsut one battery.

    As an Amazon Prime shopper I usually get request from vendors to leave feedback. And often I don’t make time to do so (shame on me) but in this case I was planning to leave feedback on my experience with the Insta360 One X, but they beat me to it with a request. But I am happy to write this!The Insta360 One X is an AMAZING camera, its going to change how you take and view pictures! You won’t regret purchasing this camera.That’s my short review.Now for those of you still reading, here’s a more detail and thoughful review.About 2 months ago a friend showed me this device he had just purchased, an Oculus Quest VR headset. Myself being an artist he showed me a 360 painting app which blew me away, and as played with the headset some more, I discovered YouTube had some 360 videos, I found one which was a night time walking tour of midtown Manhattan, New York from Lincoln Center to 42nd Street Time Square. After watching that on the Quest, I was sold on 360 video.The Oculus Quest was a quick purchase and I wanted to shoot my own 360 videos as well. So I started doing the research, looking for reviews and of course, YouTube had tons of reviews and it seemed everyone was highlighting the Insta360 One X. After spending 3 weeks watching just about every video on 360 camera reviews, I concluded the Insta360 One X was worth trying and I am 100% happy that I purchased it. The price is affordable compared to other 360 cameras.The Insta360 One X takes really GREAT videos and if you are a professional photographer then you’ll know how to mess with the settings to take AMAZING photos and videos. I am not a photographer, so I like my picture and video settings to be auto. If I have to start worrying about camera settings, I will lose interest fast.Insta360 One X right out of the box is set up to take quality pictures. Just charge your battery, attach the camera to a selfie stick, turn it on and you’re good to go!The app makes editing a breeze, its Mac friendly! At the moment I am aware of 3 places you can post your finish 360 videos, The Insta360 website, YouTube and Facebook. Looking at your videos online is great, you can move around and see things you didn’t even realized you shot. But the real magic happens when you put on a VR head set like the Oculus Quest and watch your video. I shot a video at the Los Angeles Comic Con a few weeks ago and its just amazing! The Insta360 One X captured everything! people walking around, in front of you, behind you (ever wonder what people are doing behind you while you are walking, now it’s no longer a mystery) you feel like you are in the space, its like being in a Star Trek Holodeck. The quality of the video is good enough that you can grab still shots from your video through the app as well.I should mention, Facebook is a little buggy though with 360 video, it doesn’t always play nice with 360 content. The Oculus Quest can’t access 360 video posted on Facebook. By the way, Oculus is own by Facebook.There are 2 professional 360 Youtube personalities who have detail reviews on the Insta360 One X as well as actual comparisons with other 360 cameras which might help you if you are still unsure, “Ben Claremont” and “360Rumors”, check them out.I love my Insta360 One X camera, that said, there are a few things to note and one thing that bugs me, a lot.If you plan on doing a lot of action shooting, you MUST purchase a Insta360 Venture Case. If you damage a len, I think its a $100 (+/-) fix plus a 2 to 3 week wait to get it back. But if you use the case, your audio will suffer. If you are familiar with Adobe Premiere (I hate Adobe subscriptions!) it is 360 friendly and works well with video from the Insta360 camera. You can record your audio with your phone using a lapel microphone and edited it in later. There are Youtube videos showing the process. If the audio isn’t important just use one of the many audio clips in the Insta360 app.The Insta360 Bullet Time Bundle is another must (though most selfie sticks will work if they have a camera mount). The bullet time tripod stand allows you to take those cool Matrix like videos. But, if you plan on using the tripod, Purchase an additional, better one. I bought a “Smatree Telescoping Selfie Stick with Tripod Stand”, not for the selfie stick but for the stand. I’ve posted photo comparisons. The Insta360 tripod isn’t very stable and it feels like it will fall over easily. The Smatree tripod legs are longer and it attaches to the insta360 selfie stick. The Insta360 stick is better because its longer (see pictures). If you want to hide the tripod leg create a Nadir. The Insta360 app makes it easy to add one.Once you discover how much fun you’re going to have with your Insta360, you might want to purchase additional batteries since the battery will give you about 45 minutes of power. And if you are like me, you might want to leave the camera on as much as possible which means you will need a couple of additional memory cards as well (128gb, don’t your time buying less).As to the thing that BUGS me. The app or I should say the apps!The app works or I should say, they work. The mobile app and the desk top app don’t have matching features!!! How insane is that. Insta360 really needs to revisit the apps and make them one. And while they are at it, give us the ability to edit videos together on the timeline with transitions, and audio editing too! (Help me get Adobe out of my life for good!) And while you’re at it more music clips to choose from (I like what you have but it never hurts to have more).I am still using my iPhone 5S and the Insta360 app is not compatible with that version you need a newer model. The app aside from editing, allows you to control the camera wirelessly. I don’t have any plans to spend $800 to $1000 on a new phone, am tempted but its not going to happen any time soon. I’ve seen pictures of a wireless Insta360 One X remote and a few people have claimed to have purchased it. I can’t find it anywhere. I feel like am looking for a unicorn. I am not sure if it really exist or am I seeing some good 3D rendering effects from hard core fan of the camera. If you have an older phone and are not planning on upgrading anytime soon, be prepared to be editing out video of yourself starting and stopping the camera. It’s not hard using the app, just annoying. I should mention if you have a tablet from the last year or so, you might be able to use the app on it. Check the specs.So that’s my review. I absolutely love this camera and combining it with a VR headset takes it to a whole other level. There’s no doubt in my mind the 360 is the near future of picture and video taking. Image going on vacation, shooting 360 video, coming back home and playing it for family and friends through a head set.Insta360 One X camera is fun to use, and its potential is endless.

    This compact and easy to use 360 camera works great and has awesome features to make cool videos and still shots.

  10. Jennifer

     We were looking forward to receiving this camera. To our surprise the Canadian reviews and ratings are not that great. In USA this camera is very liked. I ordered a refurbished unit and this is what may have cause our issues as I was unable to purchase extended warranty on the refurbished unit. I was filming tests around my home with good results, but when i used it with the extended selfie stick on the water the tripod mount built into the camera ripped itself out of the bottom casing. I accidentally noticed this after 10 minutes on the water and my 128GB card was lost in the water!When i contacted customer service at INSTA360, they appear to be outside of North America, they said to send the camera in and they would repair it but i would have to pay for the shipping and they wouldn’t even give a discount on a new sd card. I am very unhappy with the response from the INSTA360 support team, very rude responses in my opinion, I sent the camera back.
