The action cameras They are very fashionable in recent years. They are used to record adventure sports, trips, multiple activities or, as in our case, to carry out our video tests of cars on YouTube and other content social media. By the way, have you already subscribed to our channel and do you follow us on the networks?

These cameras have evolved a lot in recent years, both for image quality, stabilization and resources. The most recent additions are 360 degree action cameras. Since what we like are cars, today we bring you the five positions that we like the most to record with a 360 camera in the car.

There are thousands of possibilities, but we have focused on the ones that are most interesting to us when we are with the car moving and, above all, with the fixed camera; either tied to the bodywork or to the crystals, always by means of a suction cup. That is, without anyone having to manipulate it while we are on the move.

between the seats

We started recording in the cockpit. A very interesting position is to place the action camera 360 degrees in the center of the car. In our case, we placed it with an invisible stick attached to one of the rear side windows with the suction cup, although you can play a lot with the placement. with this position you can engrave the inside of the car, the driver and passengers and take the outside through the crystals.

the fake drone

Without a doubt the most impressive of all It is known as false drone -or fake drone-. It is placed at the rear of the body with an extendable "invisible" stick to record shots in third person. As if it were a video game. Of course, make sure to use one or more suction cups to prevent falls and do it in safe environments and away from traffic.

At ground level

come back low! Although in this case we will not take much advantage of the 360 ​​degree function, this is the best shot to cause a great sensation of speed by recording the road. The closer to the ground, the better the scene will be. Of course, again make sure to use a strong suction cup to avoid destroying your camera. In the same way, you can place it in the back of the car, recording, for example, the exhaust pipe and everything we leave behind.

from the roof

Completely opposite to the previous one, place your camera on the ceiling. If you help yourself with an invisible stick, all the better. So can capture the whole landscape and get 360 degree shots of each place you pass through without anything interrupting your vision. If the landscape or the city you are going through has a certain charm, the result is guaranteed.

windshield inside

We go back inside to place our 360 degree action camera, but this time on the windshield. The more centered it is, the better. In addition, a wide range of possibilities opens up for us, such as these two:

With double screen...

Personally I really like with this placement to use the split screen function. In my case, I usually use a part of the image to record the road and the other half to record the driver. In this way we get a result as if we were recording with two synchronized cameras, each pointing at different objectives.

and combinations

Keeping it in the same place, we can resort to multitude of effects and settings, as well as make combinations by moving the focus in post-production. For example, focus on the driver, rotate and record the expressions of the passenger, and rotate again to show the road.
