    Insta360 One R looks interesting

    it’s a GoPro style camera, but modular, comes apart, screen can be take off and face forward. It’s 1 inch sensor and 158 grams

    Yeah, I have seen some of the reviews.

    Unfortunately, it seems a bit rushed as while it is in the hands of the youtube reviewers, they are not allowed to publish footage until there is new firmware. (and the 1" sensor module isn't available yet.)

    Speaking of youtube, It took me a while to warm to this channel but I now think it is the funniest channel out there.

    So the Hero 8 Black can do a 30 image burst in raw photo in 1 second (or 10 seconds), and I took advantage of that to do some image stacking from some hand held shots at night.

    First is regular image, second is with curves lifting it up, third is 29 image stack with curves lifting it up.

    I find it interesting how you can get so much from next to nothing. Its not like the noise is simply hiding this detail, without the noise thered be nothing there.

    I think if you had too clean of a raw image with a lack of noise, that stacking wouldnt be able to bring back detail like this.

    There was a sudden change in flavour of their videos recently when they decided to stop being actually informative and go the clickbait titles, controversial claims, and number of comments route of getting into 'trending'. That's when I stopped watching.
