Insta360 ONE X Review: an unbelievable upgrade

Last year, Insta360, one of the first few companies that made 360-degree video recording accessible to the masses, launched the Insta360 ONE. It offered more ways, many of them novel and fun, to create 360-degree content without having to carry bulky equipment. But while it mostly did deliver on those creative features, the actual quality of the output still left some things to be desired. This year, the company is coming out with the Insta360 ONE X and it’s like a completely different product.

Why I used this DSLR for the Microsoft event, not a smartphone

Why I used this DSLR for the Microsoft event, not a smartphone

I traveled to New York this week to cover the Microsoft Surface event. Over the past couple of years, tech journalists turned to smartphones to capture the news, from all perspectives and in all situations. I'm guilty of using a smartphone for major event coverage - there's nothing really wrong with doing it. Especially when devices like the Galaxy Note 9 provide such top-notch photo and video options. But for this event I wanted to remind myself what it was like to use a real big, professional camera. For this event I used a Canon EOS-1D X Mark II and Canon provided a couple of lenses to make the most of my situation from my most likely vantage point.
