ONE X, what tips did you wish you had?
The best of Insta360 ONE X top tips for me is to imagine your shots before you start recording! Especially when you shoot with many people! 360 video frees your creativity, but never forget that there is always a subject and a story behind each piece of footage.
For someone looking to get into recording themselves while skiing, what tips would you have for them?
First of all, hold your selfie stick and ski stick in one hand but take care to the angle: they don’t have to be parallel in order not to erase your ski stick! a 120 degrees angle is efficient. For the camera orientation, my advice is to orient one lense to the ground and one to the sky, it means horizontally.
What other action sports have you done in the past? Can you imagine using the ONE X for these sports?
