Picture High quality of the New Insta360 ONE X
In contrast to its predecessor, the Insta360 ONE X now works as a standalone machine. The corporate needs to promote it as a “new technology motion digicam”. Which means the corporate is basically emphasizing the flexibility to decide on the appropriate angle after the 360 footage has been shot.

On the earth of VR 360 video, excessive decision is a vital side of digicam. Particularly as cropping and zooming within the picture occurs on a regular basis when enhancing VR 360 footage.
