The Insta360 ONE RS is a high-end modular action camera that has received an uncharacteristic bunch of discounts through some of its major retail channels. Meanwhile, its maker has released teasers for a new way to capture "underwater experiences" with an imminent launch. It might be a whole new form of waterproof camera - then again, maybe not.

Update: Insta360's new "Underwater Adventure" launch is indeed for the X3's new Invisible Dive Case, touted to allow the user to dunk the ~US$450 360° camera to a depth of up to 50 meters (~164 feet) with impunity. The Case can be bought either as a standalone accessory for US$99, or along with a new X3 as its new Invisible Dive Kit bundle, currently priced at US$569.

Original Article: The 'active vlogging lifestyle' brand Insta360 has updated its 360° X3 and tiny GO cameras in 2023 - now, could it be possible that the ONE RS is next? The device comes with interchangeable lenses thanks to its modular build, and can thus ship in 4K or Twin (which can switch between 4K and 360° modes) forms.

That innovative, customizable take on the action camera does not come cheap, however, with the 4K version starting at US$299. It is currently 16% off on right now however, with 20% (or up to US$110) off the Twin Edition.

That version has become even cheaper on Amazon as of late, going for just US$408 (or 26% off its retail price) - which might be a hint that a ONE RS successor is on the way. Insta360 itself has abruptly announced that it does indeed have a product event scheduled for tomorrow (August 3, 2023) at 9:00 EDT (18:00 CET).

Its new Instagram teaser has a video clip that gives the impression of some kind of new, amphibious and possibly even airborne gadget at work. Then again, as some commenters have noticed, the footage in question could also have been achieved by an X3 in its famous "bullet time" mode while also using the new "invisible dive case" that leaked out in the code for its latest update.

Therefore, it is more likely that the accessory is indeed the subject of the impromptu launch.
