Similar to the ONE RS’ modular system, it has an interchangeable 360-degree lens. Similarly, you can add or upgrade individual components such as the Lens, core or battery. It shoots at 6K 360-degree video, with incredible low-light performance. This can be attributed to its massive dual 1” sensor. Even more, it uses the same core as the ONE RS, which includes the best ever stabilization (on an Insta360 camera), Improved Audio, and Fast Wi-Fi.
The One X2 takes 12MP photos. The X3 takes 72MP photos. The One RS takes 48MP photos using the 4K boost lens, and 18MP photos with the 360-degree lens. The 1-inch 360 edition takes 21MP photos.
