A GoPro or similar action camera is great for action videos, but a 360 camera is even better. Here's why.
GoPro cameras are great for capturing action videos not only because of their rugged housing but also because they have a very wide field of view, enabling a GoPro to capture video that looks like it was being shot by another person who's following the shooter.

Here's a sample video that illustrates what I mean:
After shooting the video with an Insta360 Nano, I loaded the footage in Insta360 Studio, a free 360 desktop editor that can, among other things, convert a 360 video into a non-360 video. During the conversion process, it gives you control over the perspective that is presented in the non-360 video. See this tutorial by Life in 360.
How about you? Are you a GoPro user who has tried using a 360 camera? If so, what did you think about a 360 camera's usage for action videos? Let me know in the comments!
