Insta360 ONE R or GoPro HERO 8?

3 months 3 weeks ago #674904 by Scott Klubeck
I need an action camera that I can use to start up a YouTube channel with.  I thought about getting the Insta360 one R, but it's not available.  What is right now is the GoPro hero8.  Would you wait for the One R or just jump on the Hero8?

the GoPro has a media kit that is on the market now. Seems like better option.

Oh dang, both are so different.  I kind of like the flexibility the One R has, but no one has these in stock.  B&H told me that they don't know when these will be in.  Not exactly the answer I had expected.

That 1" sensor Leica one looks pretty sweet if you ask me.  I was just looking up at GoPro release dates historically, so around September we should see the HERO9.  I wonder what changes and if they will follow the path Insta360 has created?

I wonder when DJI is going to release their Mark II of their action camera?  I bet the next version of action cameras are going to be so awesome.  Right now on the table, I would go with the ONE R, mainly because I just watched a video 2 days ago that showed a review of the media mod for the HERO8 and the audio didn't sound good.
