Insta360 has announced a major firmware update for its flagship ONE R camera, adding new horizon lock and loop recording features, among other performance enhancements.
Aimed at action videos, the new horizon levelling feature is available for the ONE R’s 4K and 1-inch Mods. Enabling Horizon Lock keeps your footage upright and level when filming in the Pro video mode at 30fps. There’s also a 360-degree Horizon Lock setting.
The Insta360 ONE R’s new Loop Recording mode allows for continuous video recording. The new feature works with all of the ONE R’s lens mods and provides a max record time of 30 minutes.
Loop recording means that if you’re waiting for a key moment you can shoot continuously waiting for it to happen, ensuring you get the key footage.
Other new features include a 4K @ 50fps video recording option on the 4K and 1-inch Mods, a new Vivid colour profile for the 1-inch Mod and four new image sharpness options across all the Mods.
Insta360 has also added new editing features, such as new Shot Lab templates like Horizon Flip and Overtaker. There’s also a new underwater colour correction algorithm, AquaVision 2.0 and Car MultiView, which creates a split screen of the road ahead and your car’s interior.
The firmware update is available now via the Insta360 iOS and Android apps.
