Coming to you from Cinecom.net, this great video will show you nine creative tricks and ideas for using a 360 or action camera — in this case, the Insta360 ONE R, though you can of course apply these ideas to any 360 camera or action cam.

On the other hand, 360 cameras can provide all sorts of unique perspectives, and they are not just for 360-degree footage; they can often be used to pull regular footage from almost any angle you please. However, both action cams and 360 cameras have a very distinctive look, so be careful not to overuse them, as they can quickly become a bit overdone. Check out the video above for the full rundown.
