    • Hold off until end of September as go pro will be introducing a new 360 camera. If you need one right away and can’t wait I would go with a Insta360 ONE X personally

  • I am looking to keep my video - off - the iPad and on my WD Passport Pro.. but the video stored there doesn’t seem accessible for the Insta360 App (propriety?) In any case, I purchased LumaFusion but - it too - could not see any “files” stored on the WD (though WD My Cloud confirmed they were successfully down loaded) Somewhere I saw that iOS for the iPad does not recognize files with more than Eight (8) chars... so I’m gonna have to change those file names using my MacBook Pro.... I’ll let you know how that works (or not)?

  • I had a really difficult time trying to open the button snap on the lanyard. Turns out that even though it still looks the same, that button snap is now a permanent rivet. I broke it off and now use a different lanyard with a clip.

    • Air Photography if it wasnt for your video. i would have thrown the camera across the room since the manual that comes with it explains absolutely nothing and its mostly in Chinese. is there a way to lower the volume, i use it for my euc rides which means alot of wind crackling noise. thx

    • From their site, "MicroSD Card: Recommends UHS-I V30 speed class, exFAT(FAT64) format; max storage capacity is 256 GB." Maybe try formatting with your computer in exFAT first. Also, try updating the firmware on the camera. Just thinking outloud here. Hope it helps.

      KARMAkaze MotoKARMAkaze Moto27 วันที่ผ่านมา
    • I was about to do the same. Just saw your note here. I checked the Insta360 site and it says it will accept max storage 256MB. Any thoughts?

  • Do you know how well the app works on a standard ipad 2018 and NOT the pro? i know the standard ipad only has 2gb ram, i just wonder how well it copes with editing with this software. ( cant afford a pro at the moment ) - Also once you have exported the finished video to local storage on the ipad, how do you get it off the ipad to use elsewhere like on a pc or to burn to dvd/bluray etc.

  • Hi! this was a really great intro for me. Do you know if the split screen for video may also be done horizontally like one of the photo options you showed towards the last part?For my research, I want to show people around the dining table in two 180 degree frames on top of each other. Hope this is possible with insta360 one x? Is this a software feature exclusive to phones and mobiles and not in the desktop software?

  • Is your tablet a regular tablet without cell service ? Insta support told me the app does not work Android tablets, they only tested with Cell phones. What brand of tablet do you have ? Just curious. I want to buy one but am afraid it may not work on a regular Samsung Tab A tablet. What are your thoughts ?

  • How do you feel about editing on the iPad as opposed to the iPhone? Obviously the bigger real estate is a plus, but is it much preferable to the phone? I just picked up the One X and intend on using it with my Pixel, but I never though about the iPad Pro series. Thanks for the video, I appreciate the layout and informative flow.

  • Great videos. Would like more on the Insta360 One X but maybe you can answer this please. I need a case and I guess that the Dive case protects more than Venture. I am not going deeper than 5 meters but you can’t have enough protection... or is there any cons on the Dive case? Thank you very much.

  • How do you export in 4k

    Austin LooperAustin Looper3 หลายเดือนก่อน
    • The spherical video as a whole is 4.7 K So if you export it as a spherical video then it’s at full 4k resolution. When you export it as a traditional 16 x 9 flat video the max resolution is 1080 you cannot export them at 4K

      Air PhotographyAir Photography3 หลายเดือนก่อน
    • @Air Photography so how do you export 4k

      Austin LooperAustin Looper3 หลายเดือนก่อน
    • It can only export at 1080 when exporting flat video.
