In the video we go over some of the existing GoPro accessories, mounts and gear that are fully compatible with the GoPro Fusion. The fusion is quite different from any GoPro released in the past in both form factor and capability. We thought it would be a good idea for those who will be purchasing a Fusion to know what gear they may all ready own will be compatible with the GoPro Fusion. Watch our YouTube video for a complete list.

New FlowState Update For The Insta360 One

Published

on

So Insta360 has done something incredible that has just turned the Insta360 One camera into a whole new device. Last week Insta360 released a new update for Insta360 One version 3.0 for the iPhone app and a new firmware update for the camera itself version 2.0. This update introduced a new stabilization technology that they call FlowState and it is just amazing. I have done many test with the new update and I would almost go as far as to call it magic. Even with the camera moving quite dramatically the software was able to stabilize it and make it look nice and smooth.

The new Insta360 update also introduced new editing features such as PivotPoints and SmartTracking. With these new editing features you are able to create smooth videos and re-position the view-point to any angle you so wish.. The points that are created on the timeline can be edited if you wish to make changes which is a very welcome feature. Once you have your points of interested selected you can export the video as a traditional 16×9 video. The smart tracking feature will keep a subject or object in the main viewing area even if the camera is moving. They have also added some new split screen views so you can get a feel of what is happening from both lenses.

This new technology is allowing photographers and cinematographers to capture footage and shots that were not even possible a year or two ago. The Insta360 one is a great alternative to the traditional action camera such as a GoPro. You don’t have to worry about lining up your shots and the footage is just as smooth or if not smother that if you have an action camera mounted in a mechanical gimbal. The real benefit is you can stabilize your shots doing activities that you just cant use a gimbal. Try doing cartwheels with a gimbal…it just doesn’t work, now try it with the Insta360 One and be amazed. One area that really needs to be improved however is the resolution! Most 360 cameras don’t have the sharpest image, but am sure that will improve with time.

Stabilization Comparison Of The GoPro Fusion vs Hero 6 Black Mounted In Karma Grip

Published

on

I thought it would be interesting to do a stabilization test of the GoPro Fusion versus the Hero 6 Black mounted in the Karma Grip. So basically a test of a mechanical gimbal verses 360 software stabilized video. There are pro’s and con’s to both setups. First off importing and editing the footage of the Hero 6 Black is very simple as the video recorded is already stabilized and ready to be edited. The video files on the GoPro Fusion have to be imported, stitched and then rendered to a 16:9 video which can take quite some time depending on the length of the clip. So when it comes to ease of use the mechanical stabilizer is the winner. Another thing to consider is using an action camera such as the Hero 6 Black will produce higher quality videos.

However when it comes to usability, ease of mounting, a 360 camera such as the GoPro Fusion or the Rylo 360 definitely has the advantage and sometimes that is the deciding factor. Of course we all want the best quality video we can get but there are those situation were using a mechanical gimbal such as the Karma Grip just isn’t practical or even possible. Using a 360 camera opens up a whole new avenue to capture stabilized video during activities that used to be impossible. When you also factor in that many 360 cameras are waterproof such as the Fusion or have a waterproof housing that can also be a deciding factor. Most mechanical gimbals are not waterproof with the exception of a few and they are extremely delicate and can not be used in some situations.

I think we are just at the tip of the iceberg on what 360 technology will bring us in the future and I can really see it becoming a mainstream way to capture action video over the traditional action camera and gimbal setup. What are your thoughts? Watch our video as we show a side by side stabilization comparison of the GoPro Fusion and the Hero 6 Black mounted in the Karma Grip.
