The bullet time handle for the Insta360 ONE is now available on Amazon!
Insta360 ONE (reviewed here) is a 360 camera with several features, including bullet time — a special mode that allows you to rotate the One around you, recording video at super slow motion 240 fps (interpolated). The result is a unique video that looks like a bullet time scene from the Matrix. Here is a sample video and tutorial:
Originally, Insta360 suggested using a string or a monopod to rotate the One for a bullet time shot. But I found it was more effective to use a handle with swivel:
Insta360 loved the idea and created a purpose-built bullet time handle but it was available exclusively from Apple (together with the Insta360 ONE) or from Insta360’s online store. But now, the handle is available from Amazon in a bundle that includes an ‘invisible selfie stick’ (so-called because when used with the One, the selfie stick appears invisible, creating a flying camera effect).
As shown in my video, this type of handle can be used to create a bullet time effect with any camera, although it works best with a camera with a high frame rate option, such as the Insta360 ONE.
