The camera’s “bullet time” effect puts you in the center of a scene as the ONE swoops all around you, capturing every angle at a high frame rate (240 FPS). This lets you create cinematic effects like those pioneered by the famed directors, the Wachowskis.

The SmartTrack feature allows you to follow a subject to make classic HD 1080p video from the captured ultra high res 360 mode & always make the subject center frame. You also do this with FreeCapture, which lets you 1st lock in your 360 experience, then capture highlights & edit from your phone, so you can share on social media.

You can also go live & broadcast a 360 feed on your favorite platform, like Facebook Live, YouTube or Periscope. You can even use the camera under water, at down to 30 meters, using ONE’s customized IP68 waterproof housing, & use tripod, drone or helmet mounts.

Insta360 was founded in 2014 & is based in Shenzhen, China. The ONE is available in the Insta360 ecommerce site here as well as in 3rd party sites, for US$ 299.90. The iPhone & iPad app can be downloaded from the Apple Store for free here.
