Think of the One R ($479) as an action camera you can customize. Its secret sauce lies in its modular nature, making it adaptable for capturing breathtaking action—from biking to ­basketball—as well as more pedestrian images and video. In addition to the two available lenses, a 360-degree lens and a 4K ultra-wide-angle lens, Insta360 has partnered with companies like Barebones and Leica to create an array of swappable camera modules and lens mounts. And with its machine-­learning software combined with constant updates—adding features like improved editing tools and the “invisible selfie stick” function, which edits the stick from view—the One R should last as long as you need it. —Patrick Lucas Austin
