A new sample surfing video from the Insta360 One X (reviewed here) shows its performance when used with the Dive Case, a protective hardcase to enable the One X to be used underwater.
Almost all 360 cameras use fisheye lenses which necessarily protrude from the camera’s body and are vulnerable to being scratched or worse. This makes it harder to use 360 cameras as action cameras, notwithstanding their incredible stabilization and third person view capabilities.
Fortunately, some 360 cameras have either replaceable lenses or a protective hardcase accessory. In the case of the recently released Insta360 One X, there are two hardcases – the Venture Case, a protective hardcase, and the Dive Case, intended for use underwater.
