Enabling HDR on an Insta 360 ONE X

If you’re the lucky owner of an Insta360 ONE X for real estate photography, you’ll be pleased to learn that it has an HDR capability built in. Before you begin shooting, make sure it is turned on! My360 has provided us with some detailed instructions on how to utilise the HDR feature on your Insta360 ONE X, to help improve the quality of the virtual tours your deliver for your real estate client.

The HDR feature generates multiple exposures automatically for each room or exterior space that you capture, to help create a better quality 360 image. This is the only technique to create photographs to HDR using the Insta360 ONE X at the moment. You can’t convert them once they’ve been imported to your desktop, and Insta360 Studio for desktop doesn’t currently support it.

Follow the seven steps below to utilise the HDR setting on your Insta360 ONE X;

Step 1

Connecting Your Insta360 ONE X Camera To Your iPhone:

Go to your settings > Wifi Settings > connect to the Insta Camera

Step 2

Open the insta360 app and click on the camera to start making a new picture:

   Step 4

Step 5

Step 6

Wait for the processing to finish (this can take a while depending on how dark your images are)

Step 7

All done! Now your images are converted to hdr and you can continue your workflow!

To summarise the above points;

  1. Use your smartphone to connect to the camera.
  2. To begin taking a picture, open the Insta App and tap the camera icon.
  3. In the bottom row, make sure HDR is turned on.
  4. Capture your image.
