Before You Start
Note: The following instructions use the 4K Wide Angle Mod as an example.

1)Ensure the battery has been assembled properly. Please connect the included charge cable to ONE R in case of low or depleted battery.
Note: Please use a 5V/2A power adapter to charge your ONE R. You can also use the official Insta360 ONE R Fast Charge Hub (sold separately).

2)Before use, open the lock cover and insert a MicroSD card.


1)Please use exFAT Format MicroSD cards of speed classes UHS-I and V30 to ensure normal recording. The maximum supported storage space is 1TB. For specific info on supported MicroSD card models, see here.
2)Be sure to close the lock cover completely to ensure the waterproofing is not affected. Align the triangle indication marks as shown to the right. The yellow indication mark near the lock buckle should be covered.


3)Install the Mounting Bracket before using the ONE R to capture dynamic action scenes. It will reinforce connections between the assembled camera mods, giving added protection.
