Verdict: A great action cam that can do a lot
One camera – many possibilities. The One R is versatile and usually also supplies neat material. If there are many possible uses, but you only want one camera, then the One R is a very good choice. There is no action cam with interchangeable lenses from the competition.
If you look at the video quality, at least from the 4K lens, we think it looks like GoPro is still delivering the slightly better images at the moment. The problem in our test: The quality of the recordings was not always quite high-resolution, the colors sometimes seemed unnatural. It is similar with the video quality of the 360-degree lens. Nevertheless, many of these recordings were very successful.
The manufacturer videos of the 1-inch lens looked very good, but we couldn’t test it ourselves.
Another disadvantage of the camera is that the recordings often start a little delayed.
If you want to have an action and 360-degree cam in one, you will definitely make a good choice with the Insta360 One R. Currently you can buy the version with two lenses (4K and 360-degree) from 450 euros. The Leica lens would cost another 290 euros.
