  1. Iโ€™m actually pretty shocked how that turned out. Wasnโ€™t expecting it to look that close to drone footage

  2. Love all the One X2 content. Really appreciate the how to shoot ๐ŸŽฅ and how to edit ๐Ÿ’ป type videos. Thanks man โœŒ๏ธ๐Ÿฝ

  3. I was mildly (very) concerned for your safety, knowing the mean streets of Carlsbad… That crosswalk shot WAS the best! I live in Vista and go to many of the places you record at. Our paths will cross someday. Especially if our going to be riding around with a nine foot pole on a skateboard… Until then, thanks for more great content and tips!

    1. Hahaha! Yeah Mike, would be hard to miss me with this thing sticking up! I got a lot of very interested looks while filming this๐Ÿคฃ

  4. I’d been contemplating buying the extended stick for a long time. Now I’ve decided after watching this video. ๐Ÿ™‚ Let me show you what kind of shots I have after receiving the delivery.

  5. that turned out pretty awesome! the insta 360 ONE X2 gives so much scope for creativity – and that beast of a selfie stick! you can get some crazy height on that, thanks dude, that was a pretty cool video – i always watch until the end โ˜•๐Ÿฐ

    1. I appreciate you watching Calvin! And totally agree man, the possibilities with this camera are endless!

  6. Another takeaway: people would give you a REALLY weird looks and comments ๐Ÿ˜„Whenever I unload my 106 inch (2.7 meters) “selfie” stick, there are always comments from bystanders LOL

    1. Hahaha! You’re totally right Olley, there were many funny looks from people as I went down the street holding this thing up in the air๐Ÿคฃ

  7. Turning points are ahead. Creativity and Creation. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ Amazing dear brother. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

  8. I use the one X2 and the extended selfie stick all the time! if I am doing it for video.. i’ll use it for a drone like feel but also for a lot of crane-type shots.. here’s a video that has a lot of those type of shots worked in. Enjoy! And thanks for all the work you do and share here!

  9. Great video David I always love your content. Big fan of my One x2. Too paranoid to try that with my RS one inch. Great job thanks

  10. Hey David – another idea: Embrace the un-straight movements, and make dramatic swings to the left/right, up/down. After, fast forward the speed and you can mimic a FPV Drone (these of course typically don’t fly in a straight line).

    1. I’ve seen people doing that too! Solid idea man, thank you! I need to try that out!

  11. I just got the x2 and I’m going to get the extended selfie stick for my paragliding footage. I have a “chase cam” that’s attached behind my paraglider wing and follows me around..but it’s often a pain in the butt…so i’m just going to stick this out behind me, from my harness and get the shots like that. I’m also going to use it down in Baja this week getting winery, beach and flying footage.

    1. Iโ€™m not sure if you saw the ONE RS 360 video that I posted a few back, but I was doing that while paragliding at the glider port in San Diego! Worked awesome with this pole!

    2. @David Manning Yes…and I commented “Dude..I offered to take up up for a tandem flight 2 years ago!!!” lol

  12. I always have to watch until the end to see what silliness is after your outro! My favorite part of your videos is that 10-15 seconds at the end. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

    1. Thanks man, I wish todayโ€™s wasnโ€™t me almost taking out my light๐Ÿคฃ

  13. 7:32 Ultimate dad goals: carry your toddler on your shoulders while wake boarding and filming it with a 360 camera.

  14. That’s pretty damn good, would have had me fooled otherwise. Nice work as always.

  15. Been using the “original” extended 300cm version for some time. Love it. To extend it, you basically do a move like you’re casting a fishing pole, and it extends out. Friction keeps the sections extended. My beef is sometimes you don’t get a tight fit, so it loosens, and well, crap. How does this newer version extend & lock in the different sections? Twist lock, like the short stick version? Keep up the cool videos.

  16. If that was me spinning the stick I for sure would have smashed the lens into the light ๐Ÿ™‚

  17. When it worked, it worked well! I’m still confused how you didn’t run over those people in the crosswalk! I love that you can actually look like you’re flying over people. I’m waiting for the first time the FAA fines someone for OOP when they used a 360 camera.
    I don’t have one yet, but I’m looking forward to trying a 360 myself.

  18. Great video! Great tips. Your channel is awesome and has really helped me. Keep on!

  19. That one shot that was your favorite is definitely the best. Similar to with a drone, I would be terrified I was going to clip a low hanging wire, brand or something… but I guess the positive is if you do, most times you would just have a bump whereas with a drone you could lose the drone to a broken prop. Fun alternative, for sure!
