Insta360 X4 with 8K Video Recording Launched

The Insta360 X4 has been launched and boasts 8K video recording, among other great features.

The Insta360 action camera is one of the most popular ever since its launch, allowing users to open up a 360-degree dimension of recording their exploits, from motorcyclists and powersports to just about any sports.

As the title says, it now shoots up to 8K30fps resolution, and you could also shoot slo-mo videos at 4K100fps. Apart from that, the Insta360 X4 supports Cardo, Sena, or other Bluetooth communicators for voice control. Think about motovlogging without an extra microphone or cable.

The unit is, of course, waterproof up to 33 feet without a waterproof case. In any case, the company offers regular and premium lens guards.

They have also upped the battery life, too, claiming that it now lasts up to 135 minutes in Video Mode at 5.7K30fps. Recording in 8K30fps yields 75 minutes.

A bigger battery brings the weight to 203 grams, up 23 grams from the X3.


Other motorcycle-oriented features include an Auto Dash Mode that begins recording as soon as you start riding. Loop Recording records continuously over a predetermined length and overwrites the files, perfect for everyday riding.

There’s also a new Motion ND mode in both the app and the desktop Insta360 Studio program so you can get that cool motion blur effect on your shots with no extra filters required.

The Insta360 X4 can be paired with both Garmin and Apple watches so you can add data and/or overlays to your recordings.

If you like using a wired connection from your action camera to your Android or iOS devices, please note that the X4 only supports wired connections for Android. However, wireless support is available for both devices.


Wahid's lust for motorcycles was spurred on by his late-Dad's love for his Lambretta on which he courted, married his mother, and took baby Wahid riding on it. He has since worked in the motorcycle and automotive industry for many years, before taking up riding courses and testing many, many motorcycles since becoming a motojournalist. Wahid likes to see things differently. What can you say about a guy who sees a road safety message in AC/DC's "Highway to Hell."
