Insta360 X3 Review - Worth The Upgrade? | All-New 2.29" Screen!

So here it is, the new Insta360 X3. I also have with me the older X2 which came out about 2 years ago with some already impressive features such as 5.6K up to 30fps, 4K up to 60fps, 18MP 360° Photo Mode resolution, Voice Command, and a fair upgrade from the X1 coming with a mini viewfinder in the middle.

But here now with the X3, an obvious upgrade is that it now comes with a 2.29" screen. So besides that, are there any massive improvements from the X2? To find out, I took the X3 out for a spin around the city and let's just say that the slightest of improvements can actually go a long way.

With a new 1/2inch sensor, image outputs are still quite similar topping at 5.7K30fps, while other new updates such as MeMode gives you that third-person effect - having the camera angle locked to your movement when paired with the invisible stick. Quite a neat feature for more action based shots but may have to require some monitoring on the Insta360 app as 16:9 or 9:16 aspect ratios will be fixed as to how you operate the camera. MeMode also only tops at 1080p60fps so that might be a dealbreaker for you 4K-must goers.
