I predict that the 360 camera will eventually revolutionize the way how video is shot. It will replace all of these action and stabilized cameras. Picture an interview scene where you only need one camera that sits between the interviewer and subject. I think once they get good enough it’s going to be huge.

I already bought the Insta X 360.

I really found it a lot more useful than any existing small sensored action cam/small cam - and they are that also.

The stabilization is incredible (from 5.7K to 4K) and you can match it alright with normal footage in Premiere (do not know about Resolve, never tried) with the free GoPro/Kolorpano plug ins.

The low light performance is terrible though, can't use it after dark and I do not like to mix small sensored footage with bigger one.

Ricoh has a new 1" one with better low light performance

In a couple of year, when 8K will be normal, and someone put a few m43 sensors there, they could literally replace normal cameras for a lot of uses.

I agree the one x style cameras is the future of action cam and for some usage even normal camera. I have one and once reframed the quality is just barely usable but it is so much easier to film especially for things that you cannot retake.... making timeshift with this is soo easy... you can also mimic gimbal and drone shoot (using a long pole) with ease.

Workflow could be better... lcd is almost useless    as lowlight.... but reframing in post is just more easy and convenient....

similar form factor with 1inch 8k 24/5 fps and 5.7k 50/60fps I would buy even for 4 time the price

Bigger question for me is how DJI will do in the action cam market when the leader is having great difficulty already. 

For a simple reason. Because it's not their core business... They add themselves to the trouble of such leader as matter of fact, which in practice means to be part of the problem... : -)

That is pretty damn good footage from something people might consider a Toy camera.

Yeah, it's not too bad.

In terms of what is a toy, if a 15 year-old kid who saved up money from a part-time job they worked after school to buy this, they'd be confident they've gotten the best pocket camera that money can buy.

When the cinematographer who still prefers to shoot IMAX large format film for their features, but is resigned to the fact that they are sometimes forced by practicality to use an ARRI Alexa LF, looks at a P4K (or even an UMP) they may very well consider them to be toy cameras.

It's all a matter of perspective.

Yeah the Osmo Pocket is a great little camera. DJI make a Pro version with a S35 sensor, HDR mode and good codec and I will preorder immediately. 

The Osmo Action has an edge in convenience, as it’s rugged design means it can be carried without too much special accommodations. Also HDR mode is awesome. The Pocket, once fitted with the thumb controller and WiFi module no longer fits in the supplied case. Both of these must have accessories should have been built in to the Pocket.

Shocking how bad the DJI mics are, even more shocking the external one that should improve the sound and in my opinion (20 years of pro sound) it doesn't, just changes it but doesn't make it particular good.

Saramonic is much better, I would choose it for scratch sound but for anything serious I would be looking for a much better solution. Maybe a Rode Go or the new cheap Sennheiser wireless for voice recording, or an external solution (DR-60/DR100mkii or iii with a real microphone) for anything/everything else.

The Saramonic with the Go could be sufficient for a v-logger/serious amateur/good family videos.

And you think I AM a dirty old man lol. I shouldn't look at stuff like that at my advanced age.  😜

Good old Odin, how do you know I was thinking of you? LMAO : )

Speaking of antique stuff and old downtowns, not old... just classic ! : D Here's another one of a much more decent puerile and poetic kind then, this 'Osmo Pocket thing' matches all way round and covers every styles and landscapes! : -)
