Offering 360 degree video footage from Insta360 ONE X to clients?

7 months 1 day ago #648477 by Don Granger
I'm thinking about new ways to increase revenue and new products.  Have any of you considered 360 degree footage from Insta360 ONE X camera for weddings or birthdays?

Curious what the video files look like and how they are to work with.  Also, can these cameras record longer than 30 minutes?

Depends on the video quality after you edit the footage and press flat.

For a first generation camera, this thing looks fantastic.  I wonder what their runway looks like for camera V2?  

Would be awesome to see file size increase so when you pull those angles you want, you have higher resolution.

In the video linked the footage shot outdoors at night with sparklers etc. to me doesn't look that great; see if you can find other examples.

If it's the latest thing I imagine there will be people who will want it, but I don't know if they'll want to pay for it. You might need to figure out pricing, working it into your business plan, to be able pay off the camera in a relatively short amount of time - because you never know how long a fad will last til people are over it and nobody's interested in it anymore.

I wouldn't think clients would want all that much footage that's 360 in their wedding video. Seems like more of a novelty or specialty feature.

My friend has this camera, where the angles meet, the image/video quality is pretty soft.  I think this will need improvements before professional use.

I've been watching the news and reviews on this camera.  It's a solid first generation camera, but in order to compete against some of the others, they really need to bump up the resolution so when you cut out the clips you want, you can get a higher resolution.  Either way, cool camera.
