Insta360 X4 can shoot videos in 8K at 30fps

Along with 5.7K at 60 fps and 4K at 100fps

Insta360’s latest 360-degree camera, the X4, comes with some exciting upgrades compared to its predecessor, the X3. The X4 features 1/2-inch sensors, a significant improvement, enabling the camera to capture 8K 360 videos at up to 30 frames per second, marking a remarkable milestone in consumer-grade 360-degree cameras.

With its larger sensor, the X4 is said to offer improved capabilities, including the ability to capture 2.7K resolution reframed video and 170-degree FOV 4K ‘single-lens’ flat footage directly from the camera. It also features an 11K time-lapse video recording, a notable upgrade from the X3's 8K capability. For still images, the X4 can capture detailed 72MP 360-degree panoramas.

In low-light conditions or when higher frame rates are needed, the X4 can shoot 5.7K 360-degree video at up to 60fps or 4K video at up to 100fps. These enhancements provide you with greater flexibility for reframing and zooming in on footage and images, addressing some of the key limitations of traditional 360-degree cameras.

The X4 is equipped with a 5nm AI chip enabling more precise voice and gesture controls, as per Insta 360. The camera also features new lockable and scratch-resistant lens protectors. It is designed to withstand water depths of up to 33ft without housing and can be used inside the Invisible Dive Housing for depths of up to 164ft. Additionally, the device can handle temperatures as low as -20 degrees Celsius.

The X4 comes with a new 2290 mAh battery that can power the camera for up to 135 minutes in 5.7K 30p mode and 75 minutes in 8K mode. The 2.5-inch LCD is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass, providing scratch and impact resistance. The Insta360 X4 is priced at US$499 (₹41,763).
