 Insta360's One R challenges the basic assumptions about what an action camera can be, and uses a unique modular design to allow for more flexibility. The result is an action camera that's capable of handling a greater variety of shooting scenarios and generating unique footage you won't get from any other camera in this genre. It's a two-in-one combo that actually delivers.

A versatile and powerful action cam stuffed with features

As an alternative to a GoPro Hero, the One R is definitely a strong shout – particularly if you see yourself shooting a lot of 360 videos or photos.

As an alternative to a GoPro Hero, the One R is definitely a strong shout – particularly if you see yourself shooting a lot of 360 videos or photos. We suspect GoPro’s reputation for reliability and all-round performance will keep it as the go-to choice for action cam buyers, but if Insta360 continues to support and improve upon its products, it may overtake its closest rival very soon.

Swap between 360º and 4K in an instant with this unique, but fiddly modular action camera

Insta360 has delivered a unique concept that will suit videographers in two minds about whether to shoot in 360º for virtual reality, or just plain old 4K video. Watertight despite its modular design, the ONE R boasts effective FlowState image stabilisation and features like Deep Track, Starlapse and FlashCut auto-editing, as well as a clever smartphone app that allows the user to edit on-the-fly without downloading footage from the camera.

Ingenious modular action cam gives you three filming choices in one device

from Expert Reviews

On paper, it’s a great value proposition and, in the flesh, the modular system really does work. It’s reasonably water-resistant, compact and well made and, though the camera menus are fiddly, the app is excellent in many regards.

On paper, it’s a great value proposition and, in the flesh, the modular system really does work. It’s reasonably water-resistant, compact and well made and, though the camera menus are fiddly, the app is excellent in many regards. The 360 part of the system produces cracking 360 and reframed footage that isn’t a million miles behind dedicated 360 cameras like the GoPro Max. All good. But – and it’s a big but – the other half of the system just isn’t up to scratch. It’s nowhere near the quality of a standard GoPro or a DJI Osmo Action, despite impressive specifications.

The One R is one of the most unique, ambitious action cameras we've seen – and from our early play, it looks like Insta360 might have pulled it off. Plenty more testing is required before we give our final verdict, but this modular system is far more dynamic than GoPro's, letting you switch between 360-degree and wide-angle cameras without (we hope) the quality compromise of the GoPro Hero Max. The software needs polishing with updates and the tiny screen is not ideal, but this is something genuinely new.
