The latest addition to my kit is the Insta360 OneX2 camera. With two lenses and the ability to stitch the image, it has opened up many more interesting ways to capture the moment.
Primarily I use the camera to capture 360 degree images, but another function is video. Using either a VR headset (Oculus, Vive, Rift) or a phone mounted device, any moment can be captured in an immersive and unique way.
The video adjacent shows a short clip from Beeleigh Falls, Essex. Please use the cursor to rotate and explore the beautiful waterfall.
When viewed through a headset, you are fully immersed with 360 degree audio and video. It has to be seen to be believed!
Options available for this method include:
Interviewing family members
Playing with pets
Personal message to family / friend
Phone mounted headsets are the cheapest option to view the playback. They are available from Amazon and gaming retailers. Prices start at around £15.
This genre is very new to me and I'm sure there are dozens of other uses. If you have a suggestion or would like to capture an occasion, please use the contact page.
