3 min read

Finding the best skiing camera is a tough task, so, we’ve made it easy for you. With an Insta360 ONE Series camera, you can get shots you can’t get with any other camera, edit with ease and share your best lines in a few taps. Here’s a look at Insta360 ONE R, and Insta360 ONE X on the slopes.

Whether you’re hitting the slopes by board or skis, both are cold weather ready, and if you’ve ever used an action camera, you’ll have an easy time using a ONE series camera.

The big reason why it’s the best skiing camera: The Invisible Selfie Stick.

Insta360 ONE Series can all sport the invisible selfie stick. That guy in the red? He’s holding the camera. It makes it look like there’s a drone following you. Check it out:

Reframe your run.

Insta360 ONE R and ONE X shoot in every direction so you don’t have to worry about aiming your camera. You can use the app to edit on your phone and choose the direction you want after the fact. Focus on your line and edit later, just like this guy:

All that reframing sound a bit wild?

No worries. With Insta360 ONE R Twin Edition, you can swap out the lenses and shoot just like you do with a GoPr – oh, traditional action camera. What’s more, you can swap the screen to face you, that makes it even easier to line up your shot.

It’s not a drone, it’s the Extended Selfie Stick.

Don’t have a drone? No problem. If you’re feeling up to some really wild shots, pick up the Extended Selfie Stick. It’s a ton of fun. Just be careful, it’s 3 meters long.

Find your flow, TimeShift your line.

Once you’ve mastered reframing, try throwing in a bit of a TimeShift. You can speed your footage way up to 16x, add motion blur, then slow it way down at key moments. Here’s how it looks when following a mate down the slopes:

Not keen on hyperlapses? No worries, you can just slow-mo it if thats your thing.

SmartTrack your grind.

SmartTrack lets you focus on a subject, let’s say you, grinding a rail. You can pop your Insta360 on the floor with a tripod, or spear it in the snow, then let the software do what it does best and track your movement. Check it out:

With a ONE R, you can take that up a notch with Deep Track. ONE R can track a subject, even if it goes behind an obstacle, pretty cool eh?
