The Insta360 One X2.


360 cams capture everything in a sphere around the camera, then later you can decide what you want to show -- and exactly how it's shown. As far as these cameras go, a lot of people like the GoPro Max, which is selling for around $430, but Insta360's One X2 is also impressive and some people prefer it to the GoPro. The standalone version of the One X2 has been on sale for the last couple of weeks for the lowest price we've seen: $387, or $43 off its list price of $430. The sale is over on Dec. 14, so you only have a few more days to take advantage of the savings -- at least until the next sale.

The standalone One X2 isn't the only Insta360 product that's on sale. Everything is, including the the newer Go 2 ($270 or $30 off a free accessory valued at $10) and earlier One R, which gets a $64 price shave on the base model. Various bundles are also being discounted and each Insta360 action cam has various accessory options (some are geared toward certain sports like skiing).

We have a couple of videos to give you an idea of the kind of footage Insta360 cams can produce. Former CNET Senior Video Producer Nic Henry epically reviewed both the Go 2 (you can find the video here) and the One X2 (see below).
