Insta360 ONE X2

ONE X2 is part camera, part sidekick. With just one device, you can capture every angle at once, and unlock cinematic perspectives that used to require a cameraman or drone. When you’re ready to edit, AI-powered features in the Insta360 app and desktop software help you find and edit your best shots in just a few taps. 

Insta360 ONE X2 is available to order today via Insta360.com and select retailers worldwide, including B&H Photo Video and Adorama. 

The pocket camera crew.

Insta360 ONE X2 unlocks a world of creative possibilities. Four ways to shoot—360, Steady Cam, InstaPano and MultiView—come together to deliver a multi-cam rig that fits in your pocket.

With 5.7K 360 degree capture, the camera catches the action in every direction, so you don’t have to point while shooting. Just choose your favorite angle during your edit, or let ONE X2’s AI do it for you. 

When you want to capture traditional flat videos, there’s Steady Cam mode. This mode puts all your firepower behind one of ONE X2’s lenses, capturing ultra-stable, ultra-wide footage that’s ready for instant sharing. 

InstaPano is a brand-new photo mode for capturing beautiful panoramas. Rather than moving your camera or phone across a scene and getting poor-stitched, blurry panoramas, it’s just one tap and done.

And for solo vloggers and creators, MultiView is a game-changer. Display two angles at once with different fields of view and make sure you’re always in frame with the app’s face tracking. 

Steady no matter what. 

Whether you’re shooting in 360 or Steady Cam mode, FlowState stabilization keeps your shot smooth. ONE X2’s stabilization and horizon leveling algorithms are better than ever, allowing you to shoot ultra-stabilized shots with just one pocket-sized cam—no gimbal needed

The invisible selfie stick.

The real fun of a 360 camera lies in the Invisible Selfie Stick. Everyone’s favorite feature is back with ONE X2, allowing you to capture epic aerial angles without a cameraman or drone. Watch the stick magically disappear in your edit, keeping you in the center of your own story.

Shot Lab.

There’s nothing easier than editing your footage with the Insta360 app’s Shot Lab. Shot Lab hosts a continuously updated collection of one-tap templates using the latest and greatest 360 editing techniques. All you need to do is bring the footage and Shot Lab turns it into something epic.

Templates like Dolly Zoom and Stop Motion Mix make cinematic effects as easy as a tap. Clone Trail and Shadow Clone templates clone your body in seconds. Ghost Town takes your 360 timelapse and removes people from it, outputting an unobstructed photo.

Track any subject.

Select your target with a tap or voice command while shooting. Then head to the app or Studio, where the upgraded Deep Track 2.0 algorithm can track humans, animals and other moving objects, keeping your target center-frame, no matter the obstacle.

Let AI choose your best angle. 

The beauty of capturing in 360 degrees means you don’t have to point at your subject when shooting. But having every possible angle at your fingertips can get a little tricky when you’re ready to share your footage.

Auto Frame combs every inch of your 360 footage and reframes your shot to find the highlights. Improved video recommendations and a new photo algorithm help you find the perfect shot in seconds. 

Control time and space.

The TimeShift hyperlapse feature is back with ONE X2, and now available for both 360 and Steady Cam shots. Adjust the playback speed while reframing your shot in any direction, or let the AI do it for you. 

Add a Freeze Frame to slow your video down to a standstill and reframe the angle at the height of the action. It’s as simple as a tap in your video’s speed settings. 

Low light, done right.

Achieve natural, high-dynamic-range shots in a tap. PureShot mode enhances the dynamic range of your low-light photos, while reducing noise and preserving detail.

The image quality improvements don’t stop when you head underwater either. AquaVision auto-balances out colors, resulting in crystal-clear underwater content that looks like it was shot in broad daylight. Just toggle it on in the app—no external filter or further editing needed.

Better hardware, better experience. 

Insta360 ONE X2 maintains the pocket-sized form factor of ONE X, while building on its strengths with a range of hardware and performance upgrades.

A higher-performance 1630mAh battery keeps you shooting for 80 minutes, while a new ultra-bright high-def touchscreen allows you to preview your shot in 360 degrees. 

ONE X2 is also ready for the water, with IPX8 waterproofing. Take it down to 10 meters (33ft) without a case, or use the Dive Case to shoot down to 45 meters with seamless underwater stitching.

Four mics hone in on your voice no matter how you hold the camera. A new smart wind-reduction algorithm filters out the noise, while 360 Direction Focus boosts the audio according to the viewing angle of your shots.

Voice control allows you to control shooting when ONE X2 is just out of reach. You can even connect your AirPods to control the camera or record audio on the go. 

360 webcam and live streaming. 

Stay connected with friends, family and colleagues from a distance. Use ONE X2 as a webcam to get a wide angle split-screen view on Zoom and other popular conferencing platforms. Or go live in 360 degrees on Facebook, Youtube or any other 360-video channel with the customized RTMP feature.
