The ONE RS 1-Inch enables you to capture inspired imaging without Limits
The inclusion of dual 1-inch sensors marks a major breakthrough in the 360º digital imaging arena and now enables these small cameras to capture high quality 6K footage and 21MP 360º photos.
As well as outstanding image quality the new 1-inch sensor will help users to capture high quality images in low light conditions and delivers an impressive dynamic range.
The big announcement for the ONE RS 1-Inch 360 Edition is that it has been co-engineered with Leica. This relationship started back in 2020 with the high-resolution lens module with the Insta360 ONE R and recent ONE RS.
“We’re excited to bring Leica’s optical and digital imaging expertise into a new product segment with the ONE RS 1-Inch 360 Edition. Creators can take advantage of both the camera’s 360 capture capabilities and its dual 1-inch sensors, no longer having to choose between creativity and premium image quality,” said Matthias Harsch, CEO of Leica Camera AG.
The Freedom of Insta360 ONE RS 1-Inch 360 Edition
As we’ve seen with Insta360’s previous cameras capturing high quality video and stills no longer requires a large 360 rig. While the price makes this an affordable 360º solution for anyone the quality and features are ideally suited to professional use. Pro’s can use the ONE RS 1-Inch 360 Edition for filmmaking, VR content, outdoor exploration, enterprise application and much more.
As the camera utilises two lens in order to record the full panoramic 360º vista, content creators don’t need to consider where the camera is pointed. Reframing the scene can all be done later through the powerful insta360 software or through the App.
This panoramic 360 technology makes shooting dolly shots and third-person views possible even without a full film crew. Insta360 has also built in technology that helps to remove selfie sticks for improved visual impact.
As we have seen with the Insta360 ONE RS the FlowState Stabilisation and horizontal levelling algorithms do an outstanding job of smoothing out footage and enabling you to capture professional looking video footage easily.
Insta360 ONE RS 1-Inch 360 Edition Powered by AI
The ONE RS 1-Inch 360 Edition also brings intelligence to the often tricky editing process. A new PureShot HDR photo mode takes full advantage of the power of AI and auto exposure bracketing to produce images with increase dynamic range and helping to reduce and even eliminate the need for editing.
Now with the ONE RS 1-Inch 360 Edition you can produce short social media ready videos in a few seconds using the feature packed Insta360 app. As we saw with the Insta360 ONE RS the power of the Shot Lab feature enables the AI to automate much of the editing process with techniques such as cloning, dolly zooms and star trails all built in. If you want more control then there’s the Insta360 Studio desktop software or Adobe Premiere Pro plugin for full manual control.
Insta360 ONE RS 1-Inch 360 Edition Unmatched Versatility
As with the recent Insta360 ONE RS the ONE RS 1-Inch 360 Edition is designed to be taken anywhere. The camera features IPX3 water resistance that will help keep it protected against rain, snow and other inclement conditions.
Thanks to the camera’s portable form factor, it can easily be mounted on a car or backpack to collect Google Street View imagery, on a tripod for virtual tours or even on a hardhat for construction site monitoring. The camera will be compatible with major platforms like Matterport and OpenSpace with a future software development kit (SDK) release.
