Is getting a drone better than a 360 Camera?? Which low-budget filmmaking tool do you get next?
Are you looking to buy a drone or 360 action camera? Have you been wanting to buy a drone but think that it may be too difficult to fly it anywhere because of all the drone rules and regulations?

In this Jake Rich vlog, I’m sharing my thoughts and opinion on which tool, a drone or 360 camera, would best suit a low-budget filmmaker looking to improve their travel filmmaking. Both of these camera tools are capable of creating some incredible perspectives that can be used to create impressive shots to help tell your story.

As a travel filmmaker and photographer, my pick, in order of preference is a drone, and then a 360 action camera. I hope this video helps you make up your mind, thanks for sharing the stoke 🙂

    Awesome video mate! Love that you got "knob jockies" on video haha. Howdy from Sydney!

  4. Pavel R on July 29, 2022 at 7:58 pm

    Just GoPro Max 2

  5. WorkForAvocados - Surf, Skate and Stoke on July 29, 2022 at 8:01 pm

    I’ve got the first air and the OneR, waiting on the new Air2s to come in the mail. The 360 is a game changer for achieving drone like effects in close quarters but It’s definitely more time consuming to edit with. Another great video 👍🏼

  6. Andrew Butcher on July 29, 2022 at 8:01 pm

    Great video of a question I’ve been asking myself. The limitations on places to fly even a dji mini 2 here in the UK out me off drones a little bit I do have a question. For someone with a go pro hero 7 and a mirror less dslr would you go with the Insta 360 x2 or the Insta go 2 if I don’t go for a drone? The image quality concerns me with the x2

  7. SnoXxY94 on July 29, 2022 at 8:04 pm

    Cant realy fly drones in EU in 2021 without lisence (or a drone without camera and under 250g, which is just useless), also in 2023 will it only be CE marked drones you can fly! So that means mavic can say bye bye to EU! So if you live in EU i would recomend 360 just because of that

  8. Juan Felipe Gutierres Gomez on July 29, 2022 at 8:04 pm

    So insta 360 or mavic mini 2? it’s for a beach travel what do you recommend?

  9. ruthdexplorer on July 29, 2022 at 8:05 pm

    Thanks for the review! Ive been considered these twoooo

  10. PERDANA ADI NUGROHO on July 29, 2022 at 8:05 pm

    Thank you for the video, well explained. and yes, I’ve been trough this difficult decision between these two options, and now I choose the 360 camera. I can use it almost everywhere.

  11. Gab Scanu on July 29, 2022 at 8:07 pm

    is that heath ledger ?????

  12. Dilshan Hewawitharana on July 29, 2022 at 8:07 pm

    Personal preference for me is the Drone because of the videos and photos which can enhance the production of any travel video or the social media accounts.

  13. Kinda Silly on July 29, 2022 at 8:08 pm

    hey, nice video bud…
    I’ve been confused on the same topic for months now and finally your video helped me form my decision 😊
    Love from India ❤

  14. Tokyo Paul Live on July 29, 2022 at 8:09 pm

    I got both lol. But use drones severely limited in some places in Japan. sad.

    Jake where do u get ur music from

  17. Lupinforever on July 29, 2022 at 8:11 pm

    I got one Insta360 R already unfortunately due to the restrictions of drones I still struggling if I should buy a drone yes the footage be awesome but most of the time you only need it for one or two aerial shot. I might just get a extra long pole instead.

  18. Bambang Hudaevi on July 29, 2022 at 8:15 pm

    wow the footage is so beautiful that I am

  19. SUNSYLO1973 on July 29, 2022 at 8:16 pm

    I picked the 360 camera over the drone cause I don’t want to have to get the license just to 🪰 it 😄✌🏽

  20. РАШИН КОМИ on July 29, 2022 at 8:17 pm

    Good video😁😁😁✌️

  21. Brien Jude on July 29, 2022 at 8:17 pm

    What’s up how are you 🤙

  22. gavin80824 on July 29, 2022 at 8:27 pm

    Had just talked to you about this topic . Took your advice and got a Drone which I’ve been wanting for a long time now . Super stoked with my decision! Thanks for all the advice and help ! 🤙🏼

  23. ilonggo japon on July 29, 2022 at 8:28 pm

    I like drone☺️

  24. Afzanali Pro on July 29, 2022 at 8:29 pm

    Amazing video brother I can’t afford both but to I like your videos hope so one day I will get both I have normal GoPro hero 9 for now.your videos help me so so so much 🥰 love your work 😇

  25. V-Light Photography on July 29, 2022 at 8:29 pm

    I guess i’ll have to agree with many of the comments here about the drone laws being an annoyance. I feel i’m more excited about a possible GoPro Max 2 than buying a drone at the moment. That being said, there are some shots you just can’t get without a drone… Ultimate goal would be to have both! 😎 Also thank you for mentioning the importance of flying a drone responsibly 🙏And thank you for this fun and informative video!

  26. Ol1veredits on July 29, 2022 at 8:30 pm

    Will you ever be on tiktok?

  27. Liam Pixels on July 29, 2022 at 8:33 pm

    Great video what a location for a video as well. Personally I like the drones more you can’t beat the prospective that you can get on them
    Would love it if you could check my Instagram out Liam.pixels
    Can’t wait to see your next video

  28. Explore Travel TV on July 29, 2022 at 8:33 pm

    I would love a drone or a 360 camera, I don’t have either yet in my gear. they would be great for my Travel show. But ya, the drone requirements, restrictions and licensing just to fly it (to put video on my youtube) is a quite a lot to try to deal with. And most places I go to I have seen they don’t even allow drones. I am sure the 360 camera might be the next gear out of those two.

  29. The R5 Family on July 29, 2022 at 8:33 pm

    I went with my GoPro MAX first, simply because I can take it practically anywhere. When I purchased my drone I got the DJI Mavic Mini 2 simply because it weighs less that 250 grams (the magic number a lot of laws and regulations are based on). However, since it has a recording video camera it falls into the same category as the larger drones in almost every EU country and the US meaning you need more certification/licenses and fewer places you can fly. I still take my mini 2 with me when I travel, but realizing there are a lot of places I won’t be able to use it whereas I always use my GoPro MAX

  30. Pedro Noronha on July 29, 2022 at 8:36 pm

    This is a question I’ve been asking myself for the past couple of months. I’m just waiting for the US borders to open – buying tech in Brazil is quite expensive due to the currency – but I think I will go with the 360 since I want to level up my Instagram stories game. And as soon as I have more money, I will go with the drone.
    Btw, you should make a video on how to level up Instagram story content 2021 version 🙂

    Loving these shots Jake, but I’m a drone fanatic so it will always be my fav😅🙌

  34. Jake Rich and Anna Chah on July 29, 2022 at 8:39 pm

    Did this help with your decision-making? 360 or Drone? What’s next for you?

  35. Jose Joshua Anacta on July 29, 2022 at 8:40 pm

    Thanks jake! Drone it is! 🔥

  36. Arc Rides on July 29, 2022 at 8:40 pm

    Great video!!!! I hate the warping of 360 cams.

  37. onFIREfamily on July 29, 2022 at 8:40 pm

    Thanks for this video! Ready to up the game on our channel. Lots of shots from a boat coming our way and crashing a drone into water has worried me. 360 camera may be the way to go. Appreciate all the points on this decision!

  38. Patty BeGood on July 29, 2022 at 8:42 pm

    Since the mini 2 came out the restrictions on drones have increased because there are many idiotic tourists who don’t follow the rules. If this continues, it will no longer be possible to shoot in the most touristic places.

  39. Sophornkhmer on July 29, 2022 at 8:42 pm

    Which one would u choose between GoPro max and 360 camera? Thank you!

  40. Shinil Payamal on July 29, 2022 at 8:43 pm

    Considering all the restrictions around drones, I would start with a 360 degree camera.😎

  41. Bucket List Travellers on July 29, 2022 at 8:44 pm

    We’ve only just recently heard about the 360 degree cameras, but the ease of use aspect is appealing. Our concern with drones is that we travel full time and some countries don’t allow drones into the country, which could be an issue logistically. Aesthetically, we prefer the drone shots though.

  42. Hamish johnson johnson on July 29, 2022 at 8:47 pm

    Love the vids man can you do best GoPro 9 eqitmant please

  43. Under The Microscope on July 29, 2022 at 8:47 pm

    common that is logic haha drone is always first

  45. Henk Bartl on July 29, 2022 at 8:48 pm

    not to forget the EU-laws regarding drones

  46. Nel Massachs on July 29, 2022 at 8:49 pm

    "Never stop adventuring"
    "Embrace your inner child"

    "Stay positive. Stay wild"

  47. Exploring theWorld on July 29, 2022 at 8:50 pm

    Great video as always, Jake! 😊 Anyways, I prefer my Insta360 because there are so many restrictions all over Europe that are really annoying. Cheers, buddy! Enjoy the sunshine!
