Published

on

In this video tutorial, we go over all the steps on how to connect and pair the GoPro Remo remote to the GoPro Fusion. The Remo remote is nice in the fact that it is a small water proof remote that is compatible with the Hero 5/6 Black, Hero 5 Session and the GoPro Fusion. It has a simple one-button design and can also assist with your GoPro to hear voice commands in less than ideal conditions. One downfall, however, is that the Remo Remote can only be paired to one GoPro at a time.

GoPro Fusion / 360 Cameras

Insta360 Extended Edition Selfie Stick | Review & Sample Footage

Published

on

Why on earth would you ever need a 118 inch (almost 10 feet) extension pole, watch our video review to find out! In this review, we are taking a closer look at the new 118 extended edition selfie stick from Insta360. This super long selfie stick is intended to be used with small 360 cameras such as the Insta360 One or Rylo 360 camera. I even mounted my GoPro Hero 6 Black on it and was able to get some interesting photos.

When you mount your 360 Camera on a long extension pole such as this, it really gives you an interesting perspective. It can really make it look as if there is a camera floating quite a ways out in front of you or above you, almost similar to the view a drone would give. When used in conjunction with a tripod base you can also get some really stunning 360 photos.

One downfall due to the length of the selfie stick, there can be some flex in the pole which can sometimes be visible in the shot, any wobble or shake, however, is removed by the 360 cameras stabilization software. Heavy cameras such as the GoPro Fusion cannot be used with this extension pole, they are too heavy and cause too much of a curve in the stick.

If you will be mounting the Rylo 360 camera you will need to get a GoPro tripod adapter, I recommend the one by Smatree due to the fact it doesn’t have the extreme curve that most similar GoPro tripod adapters have. When filming with 360 cameras keeping you camera exactly center over the extension pole is extremely important in order to have the pole invisible in the video.

Alternatively, you may want to take a look at the super long extension pole from Telesin. It is very similar to the Insta360 Extended selfie stick but comes in at only 106 inches. A tiny bit shorter but quite a bit cheaper. Long extension poles like this are one of those accessories you will not use every day but can really enhance your videos and photos from time to time and I think makes a perfect compliment to you 360 camera bag.

I recommend using the Smatree Tripod adapter with 360 extension poles as the mount lines up with the center of the pole unlike may similar mounts. This is very important to make the pole invisible.

 

If using the Insta360 Extended Edition Selfie Stick with a Rylo 360 camera or GoPro you will need to use a tripod GoPro adapter.
