Insta360 ONE X: 360 Action Cam Overview

Insta360’s new ONE X action cam marks a substantial step forward for action cameras. I haven’t been a big fan of 360 video in the past until I saw how the ONE X could help me with behind-the-scenes and lighting breakdown shoots. I often don’t have anyone around to help me shoot BTS or follow me while I explain how to setup a lighting design. The ONE X allows me to do this by letting me shoot 360 video, and then re-compose the shot in post so it looks like I had a camera operator follow me around!

If you’d like to learn how to make great dialogue audio for your film and video projects, please have a look at my courses including processing dialogue audio in Adobe Audition and DaVinci Resolve/Fairlight, recording sound, how to use the Zoom F8 and F8n, and how to get the most from the Sound Devices MixPre series of recorders.
