New Insta360 ONE X Venture Case Waterproof Housing
Shooting in 360 underwater is notoriously difficult due to the refraction of light as it goes through the water, which makes the stitching process that created 360 video more difficult.

With this waterproof housing for the Insta360 ONE Action Camera, it allows you to use your 360 footage to create a traditional flat video, so you can avoid seeing the stitching line at all. This could be an awesome way of shooting video underwater without worrying about where to point the camera, which is often difficult when you’re submerged.
