With the explosion of the video field, VLOG video creation is no longer the domain of professionals, more and more enthusiasts use video vlog to record their daily life and exercise process.
Action cameras meet the requirements of vlog cameras because of their compact, portable and anti-shake characteristics, and many enthusiasts will also use action cameras to shoot vlogs. The unique panoramic view of the panoramic motion camera is often used to record the riding process.
This article introduces the comparison between several popular panoramic cameras in 2022.
1、Insta360 one x2
Ultra wide-angle mode: the Insta360 one x2 can open a single lens on either side, and switch to the plane mode with one key. One camera can meet the needs of multiple shooting scenes. With the support of flowstate anti-shake technology, the anti-shake effect is guaranteed, and there is no need for additional stable equipment. Invisible selfie stick: when shooting panoramic mode, the algorithm can automatically eliminate the selfie stick traces. It shows the effect of UAV follow-up. A person can also shoot a third-person perspective.
Small screen, not easy to operate, panoramic perspective stitching is not natural enough for gopro Max
2、Insta 360 ONE R
Maximum support for 5312x3552 photo shooting, dedicated super night scene mode, better night picture quality FlowState 2.0 anti-shake excellent 5.7 K HD video, richer picture details, high image quality Stealth selfie stick: When shooting panoramic mode, the algorithm can automatically eliminate selfie stick traces, showing the effect of UAV follow-up. A person can also shoot a third-person perspective. GPS records travel, speed, direction, elevation, location and route information. It can be connected to apple watch and airpods through Bluetooth. It can be controlled by apple watch and headphone radio. There are three lenses, 4K, panoramic and 1-inch Leica camera, which can be replaced with a variety of options.
The gap between each module is a little big, and it is troublesome to replace the lens and remove the battery. Many users may choose the 4K camera. The night shooting quality and anti-shake effect are generally due to the modular design, so the gopro Max and insta360 one x2 screens are smaller when using the Leica 1-inch camera. If the lens protective shell is installed, a small part of the screen will be blocked, and the operation experience is not good.
The front and back lenses, like the cell phone, allow you to see what you're shooting, and the screen is very close to the camera, so even if you look at the screen and talk, it doesn't give you the feeling that you're looking at the screen. The picture is brighter. When the weather is good, the picture is already very good, and it doesn't need to be toned later.
Horizontal line correction, this function is: even if you turn the camera upside down to shoot, the shooting picture is also kept on the horizontal line, very positive voice control, convenient to use 360-degree panoramic video, you can choose the required angle through post-editing, so that team photos appear different.
The volume is bigger than the gopro9, the microphone is on the side, the hand-held shooting is easy to press the microphone, so it's better to have a tripod to shoot too steadily. For some extreme sports people, the video may look like it's not difficult to control the voice without switching the lens, because the usage rate of switching the lens is very high. The panoramic mode is troublesome to edit, and the picture quality is general. The best mobile phone clips sent to the circle of friends, after all, the unique angle is more attractive, poor endurance, 3 batteries a day.
How to choose between gopro Max and insta360 one x2?
First of all, we need to identify these three issues.
① How much is the budget?
② Is there any requirement for appearance?
③ Picture quality priority or anti-shake priority?
First, the gopro Max is more expensive than the insta360 one x2, which should be a big consideration for many people
Second, appearance is also an important factor for consumers to consider when buying. The gopro Max has a traditional square design, while the insta360 one x2 has a rectangular design, and the viewing angle of the one x2 screen is too narrow. In terms of appearance, I prefer the design of the gopro Max.
Third, picture quality priority or anti-shake priority?
It can be seen that the highlight performance of one x2 is better, and the ability to suppress highlights is stronger, while gopro Max has the situation of highlight overexposure.
It can be seen that the dark light performance of one x2 is better, and the color saturation and reduction are better.
By comparison, it can be found that the anti-shake performance of gopro Max is better, after all, anti-shake is the advantage of gopro.
To sum up the third point, if you just shoot on foot and want better picture quality, you can choose one x2. If you are riding or using it for some sports scenes, the anti-shake of gopro Max is better and more suitable.
