New Insta360 Ace Pro Update: Active HDR, Webcam Mode & More

Insta360 recently announced a new firmware update for its AI-enhanced action camera, Insta360 Ace Pro (V1.0.35). The latest firmware brings all-new features and updates to Insta360 Ace Pro, including Active HDR and Clarity Zoom improvements, Webcam Mode and support for more products, expanding Insta360's range of compatible devices!

The update is available now via the Insta360 website and app (iOS and Android).

Active HDR Updates

To give you guys more control over your shots and how they look, we've added the option to turn Active HDR on or off. Swipe up in Video, FreeFrame or Loop Recording to view the shooting parameters and tap Active HDR to switch it on/off.

Active HDR is a great option when you're shooting in high-contrast lighting. It stabilizes action footage as you move, minimizing ghosting and boosting details in the highlights and shadows that other action cams miss for more vibrant daytime shots.

Clarity Zoom Improvements

Even more video and photo shooting modes now support Clarity Zoom. Double-tap the screen to zoom in or out 2x without losing any quality. It's now available in the following shooting modes:

  • Video: 4K/2.7K/1080p@60fps and below (16:9)
  • PureVideo: 4K/2.7K/1080p@30fps and below (16:9)
  • Loop Recording: 4K/2.7K/1080p 60fps and below (16:9)
  • Photo: 12MP/9MP
  • HDR Photo: 12MP/9MP
  • Interval Photo: 12MP/9MP

  • Sharpness is now on the shooting parameters page and can be adjusted independently in different modes.
  • Gesture Control stores the last used settings (record a video or take a photo).
  • The time to start recording or take a photo is shorter, so you can capture the action as soon as it's happening.
  • The time to zoom in or out of footage during recording is shorter.
