360 Degree Food Festival: Eat Drink SF

Going to a food festival is always a great opportunity. Being able to test a new type of camera while there is basically icing on the cake. In this case, it was the Insta360 Nano. The Insta360 shoots pictures and HD video in 360 degrees. The images can be used in Virtual Reality (VR) goggles, as well as on sites such as YouTube.

A food festival like Eat Drink SF is the perfect place, because you have a wide variety of food and drink, and lot of people and places to capture.

We set up our camera at various partner tables around the event, and produced short 30 second 360 degree videos from each. The quality of the initial videos were impressive, although we have to admit that after editing, export, and upload to YouTube they did lose a fair amount of resolution.

If you couldn’t go, or even if you could, take a look at what we saw.
