    I recently purchased insta 360 camera and it has truly exceeded my expectations! This device is an absolute game-changer. The quality of the images and videos it produces is nothing short of breathtaking. From scenic landscapes to bustling city streets, this camera captures it all with astonishing clarity and detail. The ease of use is another remarkable aspect. Setting it up and operating it was a breeze, even for a newcomer like me to 360 technology. The accompanying app is intuitive and user-friendly, allowing for seamless connectivity and quick sharing of my immersive content with friends and family. The durability and portability of this camera make it a perfect companion for any adventure. Whether hiking in the mountains, exploring new cities, or simply capturing moments at home, this camera delivers consistently outstanding results. Moreover, the battery life pleasantly surprised me; it lasts through extended shooting sessions without any hassle. The build quality feels solid, assuring me of its reliability for long-term use. Overall, this 360 camera has revolutionized the way I document and share experiences. Its exceptional performance, user-friendly interface, durability, and portability make it an absolute must-have for anyone passionate about capturing life's moments in stunning, immersive detail.

    I did not purchase the X3 to go viral and get rich. Rather, having a device that can record memories in 6K and in a 360 degrees world that is NOT my phone. Even though i own a Samsung s24 Ultra with 8k capabilities and 200mp camera, it is a relief and with great relief to finally have a device other than a phone for taking pictures and videos. Not only is the X3 easy to use, it also comes with ability to professionally edit right on the camera itself. Really brings the fun back to recording, creating and posting your life. Did i say it is easy!? For the price, this is best $400 can buy.

    I love my Insta360 X3! I upgraded from a GoPro Hero 6 black which was a great camera, but I have so many more options and creativity with the Insta360 X3 which is only limited to my imagination. I will however say that it's worth getting the extended warranty to cover drops, accidents, etc. The camera has the bulging lenses which can easily get chipped or scratched. I had to send mine in (Insta360 Repair Service made it a breeze and were very helpful) due to a shot I was trying to get while diving. The camera was tossed in alongside me with the Insta invisible stick still attached and came down too hard on the bottom and scratched the lens and banged the top a little. It was still functional, but a big scratch will affect the video/picture quality. Don't know how much the damage will cost, but I've learned my lesson to get the warranty before leaving the store.

    This camera has to be the best 360° camera on the market. At least until GoPro release the Max2. Editing your footage using the insta360 app is very simple and easy! Using this camera is fun and allows you guys to tell a story using this camera in a pretty fun way. If you haven't (I am sure you have) checked out the hundreds of YouTube videos on this camera get to it. You can make videos while leaving this camera on a tripod and with the insta360 app you can have the footage follow you as you do whatever. I mean I can go on and on but this review would be super long. I have made a few videos using this camera if you want to check it out my YouTube channel name is 'Jonasegway'. If you are thinking about getting this camera but have any questions, you could send me a message on YouTube and I'll get back to you almost immediately and if your question warrants a detailed answer in a video format, I got you! There are a good amount of accessories I would recommend if you have an extra $50-$250 laying around for splurging depending on what you are looking to do with this camera. Any questions? Find me on YouTube, Instagram and Snapchat. Jonasegway is my name on all platforms! P.S please understand although these cameras are super fun and facilities the ease of use for making fun content, their lenses must be protected/and or cared for delicately. If you get even a small scratch, your footage will show it and it WILL be sorta ruined. There are lens covers that I would recommend using when you can. These lenses are replaceable but only if you do it yourself. Insta360 offers a service to replace your lens but the cost is almost ¾th the price you will pay purchasing this camera so please please please handle this camera with care but don't forget to have fun. I would say keep your lens covers on at all times until you are ready to begin recording!

    Amazing! I use the camera for high speed rollerblading videos with no issues. Phenomenal camera quality with the ability to edit out the selfie stick. The reliable mic makes it better. The various angles and mode you can record allows for a myriad of unique perspectives. Be sure to get an SD Card, lens protecters and selfie/tripod as they do not come with the camera.

    Outstanding camera. Bought specifically for a YouTube video to do the "tiny planet" effect. Very versatile camera too. A lot of utility and easy to figure out the software on both the phone and computer. Whether it's for action shots or something more experimental this camera delivers.

    Have had this for a year and it has been the best purchase I have made my whole life! I like to skate and record, and this has been my best friend throughout it. I even named her since I take her with me everywhere I travel to. I recently scratched one of the lenses :( so I highly recommend investing in the sticky lenses!

    It's almost a month since I bought this camera. I bought for a trip to Disney. The interface is very intuitive. It took me less than 10 mins to start recording for the first time. My favorite feature is time shift mode nad 360 video mode. You don't need the Mobile app to record but to edit and reframe the app is a must. There's also a free desktop software for editing. Both the app and the desktop version are very easy to get used to. The camera works great with sunlight or very illuminated areas. If you use it inside with very low light the video has a lot of noise but it's expected for the 1/2 inc sensor. If you're going to record in low light environments I recommend the 1 inch version. If that's not a problem for then the camera is 100% worth it.

    The X3's high-resolution photos, responsive controls, smooth app connection, and excellent stabilization have drastically shortened my post-capture processing times and provided me with useable digital assets straight from the camera. Every detail is captured by the camera's 18-megapixel sensor and 5.7K resolution. The 360-degree capabilities of the Insta360 X3 give my projects a new angle. The Insta360 app's built-in editing and control tools allow me to create visually spectacular digital assets. Exposure, color, and effects may all be tweaked with this app. Compared to videos shot without FlowState stabilization, stabilized ones look much more professional. Due to the Insta360 X3's small size and lightweight, I can easily carry it around and use it whenever I need to. Usually, I keep it in my front pocket. It's easy to use because of its simplistic design and controls. The versatility of the camera is enhanced by its compatibility with a variety of mounts and attachments. I can attach it to my rover (Remote Control car with mount) drone or invisible stick and tripod. Planning and packing extra batteries hasn't changed the experience, you may need them for longer shoots. Depending on how I shoot that day, I can plug in a portable battery pack, which gives me longer uninterrupted shooting time. The Insta360 X3 has been an indispensable tool for recording and distributing my 360 photos and videos. As a side note- I also have a Ricoh Theta Z1, but my Insta360's are my go-to cameras.

    Video quality is amazing and the 360 view is wild. I love that I never miss a shot while out on my bicycle or motorcycle. Only downfall to these cameras is that lens.. I bought one and within 3 days I scratched the lens so bad it ruined every video. This is my second one and I put lens protection on but man does it ever take away from the quality with the glare and the crappy glass quality these guards are made of. Oh and they fog up and they scratch even easier. But still all in all the product and the editing software make this one of the best 360’s on the market.

    Using on my motorcycle. Great little action camera. Ive never owned an action camera, and was choosing between this one and a gopro. I picked this one because the video quality was said to be better. It's been really great. Video editing is easy on the app. My only "it could be better" is how long it takes to upload/ download the videos to your phone from the app

    The Insta 360 x3 is everything I wanted. Prior to purchase I did research between this camera and the GoPro 12… My opinion the Insta 360 x3 easier editing film, clear picture and wider angle. Best Buy shipping was excellent!! Received within 2-3 days. Customer Service was great while looking in the store.

    Insta360 X3 reviewThe Insta360 X3 is a great all-rounder action camera. Its strength clearly lies as a 360-degree video shooter, although it can capture decent 4K footage with a standard action camera field of view, too, beating the GoPro Max for single-lens
