Tuk Tuk’n it in Sweaty Bangkok

You can have some fun on holiday with a 360-degree camera.
Tuk Tuk at Night

I’ve gone down the rabbit hole of cameras and audio equipment over the past year, which has led me to establishing a new personal challenge: documenting trips in a more creative and compelling way. I’m officially an ‘old’, so still post still photos to Instagram and think that’s sufficient. And while I have no designs on becoming a full-time Tik Tok’er, I do want to do a better job of documenting these moments for myself to look back on someday.

That’s a long-winded way of saying I recently impulse-purchased my first 360-degree camera, the Insta360 X3. It’s a nifty little device that won’t win any video quality awards, but it does give the user (me) the peace of mind of knowing that it’s shooting footage everywhere. No need to point a 360 camera at anything, because it’s capturing everything.

After picking up some things at the grocery store, I decided to pull out the camera on a tuk tuk ride back to the condo. It’s not a slick video by any means, but I think it captures the moment.

Let me know what you think.
