Short cut through Soi Cowboy ... why not .. lol

lets be clear 
Soi Cowboy is one of the most visited tourist destinations in Bangkok 

everyone visits for whatever reason .. lol 
our reason was "shortcut"


Random decision to fire the camera ... "on the fly" shortcut (lol) thru Soi Cowboy from Soi 23 to Soi 21 and video on hand 

After a informal summit of 360 Camera talk at hospitality Suk Soi 23 (The Clubhouse) we walked back to BTS Asok

on the way south on Suk Soi 23 is the Eastern entrance to Soi Cowboy, for a moment there was a pause and a suggestion to SHORT CUT  

Probably not a short cut but politically correct rationale - the vote was "unanimous"  its' a shortcut !!!!!


The awesome tools in Insta360 360 spherical video camera

Two (2) video clips below are the same footage .. 
1 is the expected 360 spherical (rotate to view in any angle) and 
2. is output in standard video 2D while using unique tracking options of Insta360 .. there are three (3) tracking features .. 

View finder 
Pivot Point

you can use any combined, in this example below is  option Viewfinder 

in short
during video editing (after recording) you select the tracking features 
for viewfinder .. while selecting the option 
you turn around (the mobile phone) and it changes the view which is what is then recorded in standard mode .. ie., what you see is what is extracted from the 360 
sliding the red viewfinder button will zoom in and out while you turn and rotate the view
note these actions of zoom and rotate are done by the video editor so you as the viewer only view nor drive whereas in the 360 spherical you have full control

this model has now been updated from 10/10/2018 - release page Insta360 One X

NOTE: Al (details below) has the latest insta360 one X and can tell you  all about it as well as purchase link codes


Participants in this video were not drugged, injured (no broken hearts) any evidence of such relates to previous events.
Prior to entering the Soi both were normalised and appear the same the following day

note: the video is uncut with a logo - min time spent on production - it's "on the fly"
