Are high-res shots from the Insta360 X3 any good?

Well… kinda? I’m feeling somewhat hoodwinked, though. The new cam promises 72-megapixel captures, compared to 18 from its predecessor. This happens via some kind of 4x upsampling, it appears, and at least right now that’s incompatible with shooting HDR images.

Thus, as you can see via the comparisons below & via these original images, I was able to capture somewhat better detail (e.g. look at text) at the cost of getting worse tonal range (e.g. see the X2 lying on top of the book).

I need to carve out time to watch the tutorial below on how to wring the best out of this new cam.
