Insta360 X4: 360° video in 8K for endless creative possibilities

Nital SpA is pleased to announce a new and revolutionary video camera, the Insta360 X4.


The long-awaited 8K, along with 5,7K video at 60fps and 4K at 100fps, add unparalleled image quality to the infinite creative possibilities of 360* capture, including the incredible ability to “record first and frame later ” and the fabulous Invisible Selfie Stick effect.

The X4 transforms into a traditional action cam if necessary, with the Single Lens mode now updated to 4K at 60fps and Max view at 170°.

This set of superior features is supported by a very powerful 5nm AI chip, an intelligent control system with functions such as Voice and Gesture Control, and significantly improved battery performance that brings the battery life to 135 minutes. A variety of AI-powered shooting and editing modes make it easy to record and share unique, creative footage. The new Removable Protectors are another innovative addition, able to offer you comfortable and robust protection, but above all maximum peace of mind when shooting.

All this, in a resistant and pocket-sized device, ideal for any type of shooting, regardless of the action.
“8K will be revolutionary for any content creator, because videos after reframing will have the same quality as those shot with traditional cameras. But the X4 isn't just about image quality: it's designed to be the most rugged and easy-to-use 360 ​​camera, regardless of the user's experience level. This idea was behind many of the changes we made,” explained JK Liu, founder of Insta360.
8K third-person perspectives and high-resolution slow motion.

The 8K resolution at 30fps is the highest ever achieved by a 360° action camera! With videos like this, content creators will have the ability to choose any angle later (so-called reframing). It will be like going back in time and using the video camera to frame wherever you want! This makes the 8K resolution of the

And the updates don't end there. For action or slow motion shots, 360° videos are now available at 60fps and in 5,7K for smooth, sharp images in any circumstance. There's also a new 4K slow motion mode at 100fps for stunning matrix-style cinematic footage.
Whatever the resolution or frame rate, 360° shooting with the X4 offers unique advantages such as the Invisible Selfie Stick effect, which creates incredible third-person perspectives similar to those of a drone! This also applies to photos: the X4 is capable of taking 360MP 72° photos, now also with image noise reduction thanks to integrated AI.

With Selfie Mode, the X4 can even automatically frame the subject while keeping the selfie stick invisible. Now with incredible resolution and speed (4K at 30fps versus the 1080p of the X3) and 2,7K at 120fps, for standard videos ready to share without reframing!

2 cameras in 1.

That's right! The X4 is both a 360° video camera and a traditional wide-angle action camera. When you know exactly what you want to shoot, such as a first-person POV from the perspective of your chest, simply switch to Single Lens mode for super immersive wide-angle video.
Single Lens Mode has been enhanced for the X4 with super smooth video in 4K at 60fps, while also offering an ultra-wide 170° perspective in 4K at 30fps with MaxView.

A true action specialist

The X4 doesn't just face the challenges of adventure, it masters them with ease! Action tests passed with flying colors!
● Removable Lens Protectors: an innovative update to the X4. Easy to install/remove. The two options include the Standard Lens Protectors (included with the camcorder) or the Premium Lens Protectors, made of tempered glass for thicker coverage.
● 2,5″ Corning® Gorilla Glass® touchscreen: bigger, stronger and more responsive than ever.
● FlowState stabilization and Horizon Lock 360: the X4 will always guarantee smooth and uniform footage, regardless of the intensity of the action.
● 135 minutes of battery life in 5,7K at 30fps: the new 2290 mAh battery gives you 67% more battery life than the X3!
● Absolute waterproofness: take the
● Cold resistant: easily handles temperatures down to -20ºC.
Editing is made even easier and more creative.
No matter what your style, the versatility of the X4 will make your footage simply incredible!
Don't have a video camera handy? No problem! Use gesture control to start/stop shooting or take a photo, or use Voice Control 2.0.
Scheduled recording will turn on the X4 at the set time, record the content and automatically turn off the camera. Ideal feature for capturing the sunrise without having to wake up!
The different shooting modes have also undergone some important updates:
● Bullet Time – signature Matrix-style slow motion shooting, now available in up to 5,7K at 120fps or 3K at 240fps.
● TimeShift in 8K – a jaw-dropping hyperlapse in sensational 8K resolution.
● 11K Timelapse – watch time pass and capture the magic of the moments in between.
Many other creative effects are also available such as Motion ND, to achieve cinematic motion blur without using any ND filter. For motorcyclists and two-wheelers, try overlaying data like GPS, speed, and the battery level indicator from your Garmin device or Apple Watch on top of the video, with a choice of interactive dashboards for each type of statistic ( within the Insta360 app).

AI editing

The Insta360 editing suite comes with options to suit every content creator, from one-tap AI editing to fully customized manual editing.
Reframing from the Insta360 app has two updated options. With Quick Edit (formerly known as Snap Wizard), simply move your smartphone or use the virtual joystick to set the desired perspective. Editing your 360° videos is now even easier and more fun! Once you set the perspective, your videos will be immediately saved and ready for sharing on social media!

If you don't have the inclination or time for DIY editing, try AI Editing. Insta360's algorithm handles the entire reframing process, now even faster thanks to improved face detection. The Insta360 app also features Shot Lab, a creative powerhouse with more than 30 super innovative effects.
For those who prefer desktop editing, the recently updated Insta360 Studio is highly versatile software that lets you make professional, share-ready edits in full resolution, compatible with both 360° and standard video.
Both the smartphone app and desktop software are free, no subscription needed!
Additionally, Insta360 just launched Insta360 Reframe, their plugin for Adobe Premiere Pro! Users will be able to refram 360 videos shot with the X4 directly from Premiere Pro with export in maximum image quality.
