wow nice marketing work insta...
i saw youtubers flood videos of this new product a week or two ago and looked it up it was like $1000
i was like i would never buy it for $1000
now it's "50% off" at $500 making it seem like a killer deal.

but if you wake up and take a step back i think even $300 i wouldn't pay. but now with the $1000 listprice on sale for half off $500 looks pretty good huh?


wrong camera

....and here we go Face With Tears Of Joy
Never seen list price $1000, where/when ?!
Did you even try it? I know several hard core GoPro people that switched and love it just because of the easy workflow in the app.

I bought this for $640 tax and shipping included back in January when it first released (free invisible selfie stick included) for a trip to Europe. Then COVID-19 hit so that trip got scrapped and we've only just gotten around to playing with it. A couple of reasons we got this camera was ease of use (the touchscreen is awesome) and in app editing (which is awesome). We never had a 360 camera before so I can't compare it to others, but for us it is great. This price is pretty good too ($70 less than what we paid 5 months ago) - that up to 42% off is for some of the accessories, not the camera.

Way better than the X

I'd say I get about 30 mins on it.

Cool, but they don't even look 480p, maybe more like 360p.

So, word of caution for non-ios users.
This company has little to no support for Android users. Most of their apps and firmware updates are made with IOS in mind.
I had two Insta360 cameras, and both of them had a firmware update that caused them to no longer connect with my Android device. Insta360's literal response was "We are aware of the latest firmware update causing issues with connectivity to android devices. We have no ETA on when this will be resolved. Please refer to our desktop application for additional resources."

My understanding is that this is device dependent as well but good point!

Looks like they update the firmware a lot, another release today
Good to see that they try to fix problems ASAP
v1.1.43
2020-07-01
1. Swiping on your ONE R screen to navigate menus now feels smoother.
2. You can now format file fragments on your SD card. To do this, first backup your files and then format your SD card. This can reduce the occurrence of the insufficient card speed error.
3. ONE R will now automatically format an SD card that has never been used and has no files. This ensures maximum write speed.
4. Power consumption on ONE R has been optimized. Temperature is now more stable when recording.
5. Settings for H.264 encoding and screen off during recording are now on by default. This can extend the recording time.
6. Fixes an issue where the insufficient card speed error occurs when shooting Bullet Time.
