The dive case and vertical battery for the Insta360 One R (reviewed here) or Insta360 One RS (reviewed here) are both on sale at an incredible 70% off! No that’s not a typo. It’s really a seventy percent discount! But it’s a bit tricky to find the deals. Here’s how to find them.
Insta360 One R and its successor, Insta360 One RS, are the most versatile 360 cameras on the market. Besides being able to shoot 360 photos and videos, they can be converted into a GoPro-like action camera, or even an invisible 360 drone. They can also be converted into an underwater camera.
Although One R and One RS are waterproof up to 10 meters, refraction underwater will cause the image to be a bit blurry compared to shooting above water. Moreover, refraction will make stitching the 360 photos and videos impossible. Using Insta360’s Dive Case enables you to take your Insta360 One R or One RS underwater up to 30 meters, with clear photos and videos, either in 360 or non-360.
To use the dive case, the One R or One Rs has to be used vertically, which means that you’ll also need to use a vertical battery. (Incidentally, the vertical battery can also be used for the “Mad Max Mod” to prevent overheating.)
The Dive Case is under a steep discount, but it’s a bit tricky to find it. Under Compatibility, click on “Compatible with Vertical Battery Base,” then under Bundle, click on “For 360 Lens (Dive Case + Vertical Battery Base)”

With these incredibly big discounts, I suspect the dive case might be on closeout, so this is your last chance to get them. Thanks to Sven Neuhaus for spotting this deal and bringing it to my attention! Thanks also for using these affiliate links at no additional cost to you so I can do more tests and reviews.
