Morning dudes and dudettes

So considering new camera purchase and fancying exploring the 360 market.

I know some like @HippoDrone use or should I say used the 360 One X, so hoping for some advise.

The original 360, does it need to be connected to your phone in order to record footage or is that just to view the footage? The One X appears to be a stand alone camera as in doesn't need slapped on top of a phone.

Any good alternatives to the Insta options?

Also how easy is editing with the 360 cams, do the work well with Adobe Prem Pro.

Cheers for now.

The One can be used independently I think, but is a lot lower quality footage than the One X, when windowed the One X only just about passes as 1080, so the One is more like 720.
GoPro have a new 360 camera coming out at the end of the month which is waterproof and similar quality to the One X.

I mainly edit my One X footage on my phone, but it also has a basic PC editor. There is a plugin for Adobe iirc, but I don't have Adobe so can't say what it is like to edit with.

Their new one is called the GoPro Max, the have another called the GoPro Fusion, which there are deals on, but it is a lot harder to edit and also requires 2 memory cards, the new Max only needs 1 memory card

The ONE can be used independently from a phone. Live view can be seen on a phone and footage can be downloaded for editing. (If its compatible)
Unfortunately it doesn't work with my phone at all (Moto G4) so I download onto PC for editing which does limit the options.
I think the ONE is more aimed at Apple phones.

Its fine for experimenting with but as Hippo said, its lower quality than the X.

Memory cards ain't an issue but harder to edit doesn't sound so good.

Smashing thanks for info.

Just wasn't keen to have connected to phone sticking out on a stick or on a mount.

There's also a cam called Rylo 360. I'd love to get one but not sure how to edit/incorporate it all together. Maybe once they come down in price or if I can find a used one I'll snag it up but in the meant time just waiting.
