Insta360 One Review!

This is the busiest crosswalk in the world in Shibuya, Tokyo, as a 360-Tiny World photo. I never thought I would buy a selfie-stick. I've been making lots of videos for our Passport members where I'm out, on location, talking to this small black thing that is about the size of a starter-vibrator. Well, a starter-vibrator with two cameras on it. That's kind of a bad analogy, but I'm just trying to give you a sense of the size of the thing. Besides all that, it's really awesome! But it doesn't vibrate. And it isn't waterproof or splashproof.

The Insta360 ONE is such a unique camera, that words only kind of do it justice. So watch this little video I made in the studio below...

WAIT, HOW DOES ONE “WATCH” A 360 VIDEO?

Ahhh good question. This is well-known once you know, but before you know, it’s not well-known.

Although it’s a great way to do it, 98% of people will NOT be watching your video with a VR headset (well, more in the future, just not right now in 2017). Anyway, most people will see it in the typical rectangle format. To look in other directions, they can simply grab the video and swivel it around. Easy-peasy. YouTube, Vimeo, Facebook, they all support this. Try it with the video below.


ScreenFlow & Wirecast Reviews!

I also added two "utility" reviews. These may not be applications you're likely to use, but, just in case you are, then I got your review for you! One is a cool app I used to edit videos on the Mac called ScreenFlow. Well, I use it to make tutorials AND to edit most of my videos. I consider it way easier and faster (and cheaper!) than Premiere or Final Cut Pro X. It's not as powerful as those, but it does more than enough for 95% of my videos. Check that out in the new ScreenFlow Review and take a look at the video below!

The second utility app called Wirecast is even more niche and it's for broadcasting live on Facebook or YouTube. Check out the Wirecast Review for more on that.

Here are two new articles that were recently featured in The New Yorker. Both short stories were inspired by photographs I took in various Ritz-Carlton locations around the world. The first article is called, Stars on the Andaman Sea, written by Glenn Dixon. The second is The Healing Tree, by Rachel Khong. Check them out :)


StuckInCustoms.com is a personal blog where Trey puts up a new unique photo every day and writes about the art, the technology, and the story of the adventures. Actually, this is Trey writing about this in third person. Both Trey and I appreciate your support very much!
