Ultra IN-DEPTH Insta360 ONE X Review: slow motion 360 camera and THIRD PERSON camera
Now this might look like a drone shot but it's not. I'm. Shooting, with the instance which d1x a three, sees the camera and a three pv camera, in this, review we'll talk about specifications. And features and, disadvantages. And problems as well but, more importantly, I want, to focus on what difference, this camera, makes for you not. Just your videos, but, also your. Family hi, my name is Megan you're watching 360, reamers the resource that 360 shooters trust for in-depth camera reviews and innovative, techniques. Hey. How you doing, good to see you again it's. 5:00 a.m. and I'm, on my way to the San Gabriel Mountains in, LA, there. I'm going to meet a group of people I've never met before and, trust. Them with my life, I'm. Going bungee jumping, I'm. Shooting. With the instant, 51, X this. Simple, looking camera represents. The next stage in the evolution of, action, camps and personal. Cameras. Is. It, really worth spending a whole day hiking, five miles in and five, miles out, over. Rocky and sometimes, deep terrain. Just. To jump off a bridge. Is. Footage, really so epic, that it's worth it. Well. Maybe but, one thing I do know, is that this camera has the power to totally transform your, memories. For, you, and your loved ones in ways, you never expected. I'll. Tell you more about it later on on the way to the bungee jump, now. For casual, shooting, smartphones. Do a pretty good job so good, that most people don't feel the need to get another camera. But. Wait till you see this camera, it's, completely. Different because it's a three pv camera, wait. Do you mean that 360 camera yeah. It's a 360 camera but more than that it's a three pv camera a third-person. View camera. What's, that, well. These are cell phones and so, is this but. A smartphone can do so much more that it's almost like an entirely, different device. Well. Same, thing with the one next yeah it is a piece of the camera but, when you say to use the camera most people think that all it does is take three Steve photos and videos and the, One X can definitely, do that but, it can do so much more because. They stabilize. The camera, a three, pv camera, like, the One X is the ideal, tool, for capturing a third-person, view by yourself. Now. The videos, you're seeing look, like they were shot by a cameraman, or a film, crew but. They were all shot by me with just one camera and each. Scene, was shot with only one take. Now. Don't you just love how the mountain, looks in this awesome light. Now. Check this out the trail got really narrow several, times that's. A pretty steep drop, can. You imagine that cameraman. Walking. Backwards, to track you on this terrain. He'll. Take some by. The way if you're wondering why I'm limping that's, because, my, shoes were chafing, at my ankle, until the skin was gone and then, kept, chafing, at it for nine more miles it. Was like rubbing, an open, blister again. And again with each step, but. Like I said it's. Worth it because of something bigger at stake here. Here. Goes. Lady cold. So. We were talking about the third person view a third, person view is usually, more effective, and makes videos, look more cinematic, if.
You Search view 2 for bungee-jumping, videos you, can see a lot of videos where GoPros, were attached to helmets, and for. The most part they look like just, shaky. Videos and you, can't really tell what's going on but. With the third person view you can absolutely see, how the guy is jumping, and hanging. On for dear life. You. Saw how useful a third person view is now, here's the critical part, so listen up with. The three PV camera like the One X you. Can get a third person view by, yourself, even, in situations, where no cameraman, can follow, you there's. No, other way to get this amazing, perspective and that's why three. PV cameras, are, such, powerful, tools. Now. How do you aim a camera. At yourself, if. You've ever tried to take a selfie video, with the rear lens in your phone you know how hard it can be but. The One X makes it super, easy here's. How, just. Press the shutter button and, it begins recording. After. It starts recording you don't have to worry about where, it's pointing, instead, you can just shoot first endpoint later. And you. Don't have to worry about keeping the camera level, either it's. Not just gimbal light it's actually better than, a gimbal and. Since. You don't have to aim it and it's, stabilized, you, can forget about the camera and just focus, on enjoying, the moment. Now. If you want to shoot remotely, you can do that too you can control the camera remotely with, your phone and live, view there's. Also a special Bluetooth, accessory, with features, that I'll tell you more about later on now do you remember when, I said that there was something bigger at stake here. You. Know I learned photography in, order to take better photos of our family. It's maybe. Subconsciously, I was trying to turn our love and happens into. Something physical so. That they would hopefully last longer, but. Ironically, the more photos, and videos I took the. Less quality, time I had with my family, now, that all changed, when I got a third-person, camera suddenly. I could, just shoot without aiming so. I could focus on, enjoying, my time with my family, to. Me this, is the most important. Thing about third-person. Cameras, it's. About transforming. Our memories, not. Just, the way we record, them or the quality, of the photos in videos but. Transforming. The, way we experience, events. So. Instead, of experiencing. Them from behind the lens as it were, we. Experience, them with our family, and friends and. That's. Why I'm so passionate about third-person. Cameras, like, the 1x. After. You shoot the video just transfer, your files wisely, in 5g, Wi-Fi, or, go, even faster via cable, you, can become, your own director. Here. Are 6 effects, you can do in the app number. One track, objects, with smart track. Number. 2 key. Frame camera, movements, with pivot, point. 3. Turn. Your phone to virtual camera, with viewfinder. Four. Combine. Multiple videos. Into, a montage, 5, create. A hyperlapse with, motion, blur. Six. You can even do a speed, ramp effect with time shift. So, far we've been talking about videos, but the 1x also takes pretty good photos. First. Of all it's got manual, exposure. It also has ISO, priority, or shutter priority, and. Shutter. Speed can be as slow as 120. Seconds, or as fast as one over 8000, second it. Can also take true HDR, photos, it'll, take three shots and you choose the exposure interval, up to, four evey part the. Photos will be stitched and fused in your phone the, difference, can be quite dramatic. You. Can shoot and stitch in RAW DNG, format and you can add GPS, data to, your photos, now, are there other third-person, cameras, yes, but, the One X has a ton, of special, features in. My written review for, the One X I counted.
29. Of them and in fact there's some more that I can't tell you about yet but, here five of them as of, October 20 member, 5 rugged. You some cameras like diffusion can't handle rough environment, but with the venture case the One X can. For. Smooth. Underwater. Stitches, there, are several CCD, cameras can be used underwater, and some of them don't even require a, house but. Very, few, can stitch well underwater. Now. The One X has a special, dive case with spherical, lenses, to, capture smoothly stitched, shots underwater. Three. Add GPS. Overlays, to your video speed altitude, compass. Heading and the map that draws itself, as you move. To. HDR, video not, just HDR. Photos. Instantly. She has been a little bit coy about saying, how this works but, I believe they're using a Sony sensor with, SME, HDR, that's. Spatially. Multiplexed. Exposure, HDR. So. That means in the sensor, some, pixels, are overexposed, some are normally expose and summer unexposed, then the sensor combines, all the data synthesizes. Them into one HDR. Image. No, but number, one feature for the 1x is it's, slow motion they're, actually three slow motion, mode so I was trying to jump three times three. K hundred FPS, 4k. 50, fps, and. 5.7. K 30 fps, but, you're wondering, how, is 5.7. K 30 FPS slow motion long just, wait and see here's, the first jump the, first wave motion there is 4k hundred, FPS. Even. Though I'm being thrown around like a rag doll the, video is very stable and the camera, can keep aiming at, me the. Only way to get this amazing view is with a third-person, camera and, the, only way to do it in super, slow motion and, switch the 1x. Now. If you thought is really helpful please hit the like button and subscribe. Three. Case sounds obsolete, in 2018, but, as you can see it's quite detailed and it's actually as detailed, as 4k. Videos from some cameras, and. Hundred. Fps can be interpolated, smoothly, in the app a slowest, one toward speed so. It's effectively, up to 400, fps. Oh. My. God he passed instantly City has also used slow. Motion creatively, with in effect they called the bullet time, the. Bullet time is back on the 1x, but it's now 3k. Hundred, FPS it's, also in full 360. And has, variable. Aspect. Ratios. Now. Here's the second Jem at 4k 50, FPS. 4k. Videos, can be interpolated, in the app to a slow as 1:8 speed, now. How well that actually works, depends. On the scene here. I used half speed to, get a hundred, fps. Here. I used 1/4 speed to get 200. FPS. Here. I used, 1/8. Speed, to, get 400. FPS. Now. With the 1x, instant. Freeze the added a new way to use slow motion, they call it drift shot check. It out looks really cool it. Looks kind of like a super, slow-mo cable cam shot with an invisible cable, and without. The extensive, setup that you need for a cable camp now, how did they do it well. It works with this accessory, called the drifter. But. You can also get the drift shock effect with a long selfie, stick so.
You're. Wondering if forking, looks pretty good even with just interpolation. What about 5.7. K well I was, curious do so, I jumped, a third time at 5.7. K 30 FPS but. Before, I show you the third jump let's talk about the one access disadvantages. And problems. Now. Here are 12 problems. And disadvantages. For the 1x, number. One is it's less, detailed, than a DSLR, or even, a 4k, smartphone, now. This is true for almost all 3 CC cameras, first. The sensor is smaller than the DSLR, it's, about the same size of the sensor in better, smartphones. It. Also has a wider, fov, so, each lens, is capturing, like. 190, degrees or more flb. Meanwhile. Your smartphone, is capturing, only about 90 degrees. But. If you ask me I think comparing. The detail, on the 3 s'ti camera with DSLRs. Or non 360 cameras, is missing. The point it's, kind of like comparing, a fisheye, lens to. A telephoto. Or comparing. A smartphone to a DSLR, there. Are just simply, different tools so. Yeah, you get lower detail, but think. Of all the shots you saw and how, impossible. They are on any other non, HD camera. Number. Two you, do need to stitch, what. A DSLR, smartphone. You just shoot and you're ready to use the footage right away now. Some people will try to do the same thing with the one X Files and put the file straight into their editor and they're surprised that it doesn't, work, well, that's because in the 1x the photos and videos do, have to be stitched just, like most other trees the cameras, look. But there are four ways the one X makes stitching easier first, you can trim before stitching, that means you'll stitch only what you need. Second. You can do batch exporting. On the desktop, software. 3. You can save projects. And. For. When. You're using over capture there's, actually, no need to stitch you can go straight to over capture speaking. Of over capture that's the third thing it does take, an extra step but. For me this is actually the, fun part of the process, because you get to be a director, now. So far these disadvantages. Are about piece to camera to general here. Issues, with the 1x specifically. First. It has lots. Of bugs I get. The impression that was, rushed, to the market, before it was ready, so. There are many advertised. Features, that aren't ready yet as of launch date for example, no, HDR, video and in. Low life there's, blur from using shutter, speed that's too slow. But. You can avoid blur by increasing, the shutter speed the One, X has true manual, exposure mode for video where, you can specify both, the shutter speed and the eye or so one of the issues with the One X is it can be hard to remove the microSD, card if you have short nails like, you can keep pressing here and you, know it's really, hard to get it out so, here's my trick first. Of all I flipped the camera over with the buttons facing down and, then I click, press on this corner, that's farthest from the edge oh. Here's. The card next, the battery life is kind, of short in real. World conditions I, got, around 45. Minutes of, video recording. Per, battery the. Stitching, in photos is good but in videos that neither is not yet perfect as of, October, 2018. Next. Is the red dot lens flare kind of like in the theta and a few other three CC cameras, next. In 3k, hundred fps, well there's, stair-stepping. So hopefully. They'll add some kind of anti-aliasing. 11. Graphics. Get. The full 5.7. K video on the desktop, you do need a graphics, card you don't. Need a super high-end one even a GTX, 750, would be adequate, at. First it might seem like a big deal but when, you think about it well if you're editing 5.7. K HD, videos many. Software, like Adobe Premiere, Pro will, require, you to have a graphics, card. Another. Issues that 5.7. K mode on the in 61, X has a couple limits, first, of all maximum. Recording, time is 30 minutes after. That you'll have to start recording again, second. Even. Though it's 5.7, K it uses, h.264. So that's not standard there, are some players and there's some editors, that can't open it, unless. Site when you remake long recordings, with the in 61 X equates. One large file instead. Of breaking it up into smaller files, the. Cable, to connect the One X to your phone it's very easy to lose and not, so easy to replace I've. Tried, the third-party cable for the iPhone and it didn't work it. Might be proprietary. Now. Here are non, issues. There. Are reviewers, who say that the bitrate is less than the fusion, now, when the fusion records video it writes, two files at the same time each. File, has a bit rate of around, 60, Mbps, using. An h.264. Codec. Now. The instance, we still 1x in 5.7. K mode also. Records, the two files at the same time each, file, has a bit rate of around 50. Mbps, also. Using, an h.264. Codec, so. In terms of bitrate the, GoPro fusion and the inter 61, X both, have very similar bit, rates although, the fusion has a slightly higher total, bitrate, ultimately. What really matters, is the image quality so.
Check, Out my upcoming comparison. Between the in 61, X and the GoPro fusion now, Tony Northrup, has said that 360. Cameras, are prone to getting scratched, and that's true now. But fortunately, the One X does have the venture case now. Adventure, case you, won't need to worry about using, it in rough environments. Tony also said that the stabilization. And stitching, don't work on the desktop, software and. That's because he was using an older, version of the instance we see studio app as of, the October 8 version a stitching. And stabilization, both, work as you can see from these sample, videos. Now let's go back to the 3rd jump now, you might be wondering how does the 1x compare to others these two cameras well, I'm. Like. You know complete. Image quality. And. You'll just have to wait for my next video meanwhile. If you want to get the 1 X at the discount, check, out the link in the description below. Ok. Before. Watching. I'll, see you at 360. In. 5, 4 3 2, 1. And, let. Me know in the comments, which, is the feature of the entities the one that stands out to you most, lay. In the meantime check out my other 3c, camera, reviews such. As the one for the fusion the. Nice fear gear 360. And other, cameras. Thanks. And I'll see you in 360. Definitely. One the hardest, thing same time. Both. The hike at the job take something, the world. Thanks. Well the first job is kind, of easy cuz you don't know what to expect, but. You know that then you know, knowing what to expect you know becomes, really hard to like, do. It again and then a third time.
