Insta360 has made a play for the title of best 360 camera with a new immersive camera boasting so many shooting modes it’s branded as “a pocket camera crew.”

It’s an update on the Insta360 ONE X, a product originally launched three years ago, with the new Insta360 ONE X2 adding a host of new features designed to make it a better vlogging camera. The key innovation is MultiView, which displays two angles at once with different fields of view. The accompanying app uses face tracking to keep the subject in the frame. It’s also now possible to connect a pair of Apple AirPods to operate the camera via some voice commands as well as to record four-mic 360º audio on the go.
