I do have insta 360 x 3 and gopro 12

Yes, I do use sometimes my gopro for stock. But my insta 360 it's for vlogs travel.

You need strong pc to edit Insta360 footages.

Feel free to check my YouTube channel

I have never tried.

I only seen that pon5 accepts 360 videos. The 360 videos also have different format too.

GoPro camera has own purpose too, sold couple of videos.

No point getting Insta360 if you not planning to shoot 360 videos, especially that you already have gopro.

Better get a drone in your camera bag.

I have - and while there seemed to be a brief interest (aka sales) from agencies, primilarly Pond5, haven't really seen any sales since then...
I think 'maybe' I 'made' $500-$600 in sales from 360 footage, but probably spent about the same in various gear + time invested/etc... Maybe I made more, don't recall. Just wasn't quite what I was expecting (I thought there would be huge demand + sales for the content I produced).

May I ask what kind of 360 footages you have uploaded?

Sure - I did a variety, everything from walk throughs, to non moving (i.e., just putting the camera in a crowd, & letting it video tape)... I think in 2018/2019 there was a surge in interest (some of the agencies were promoting it a bit, even was a little big on 'youtube', etc), and then all of the sudden, didn't seem to be too much interest in it...

The 360 is/was kind of interesting though. I liked it - I found it seemed there was more interest in professional settings (i.e., some real estate meetings I went to - people would be recording people talking at a board room meeting/table/etc). It was more for 'reference' for later usage, and I think transcription/etc...

Alright, seems isn't big thing anymore. I was thinking myself to record some 360 videos and put it online. But wasn't sure whenever it is worth it or no, as it requires more editing than traditional video.

Yes. There are still applications for 360 video - but at the moment - specifically for selling 'stock footage', it doesn't seem to be in that much of demand.
If you decide to do real estate footage (i.e., filming houses for real estate agents) - you may find that to be a lot more lucrative. While I have not personally done that - I have heard of people getting paid between $100-$500 "per house" for doing that (as well as drone footage). But it is not necessarily 'as easy' as it sounds - because you have to (a) find a real estate agent who doesn't already have a photographer, (b) find one that won't try to nickle/dime you/figure if they have a camera, that makes 'them' a photographer, etc etc.

I do agree. I have tried already to offer drone services, but seems most estate agencies either have someone in the office who does that, or they have already a photographer.

The new tech just makes easier and easier for everyone to do the job. Soon we all will be replaced.

Lol, no - "we" won't be "replaced".

a) The "ai" is theft. Based of of existing works.
b) Sure there is new tech - but then there are new opportunities. You just need to get a bit creative in how you do things. After all - lol - the real estate agencies that 'do' have photographers  - somehow 'those' photographers got those sweet gigs, right? :)

I do agree about Ai, for someone is an opporuntity to legally steal, and for some is a loosing money.

Hard to get into property photography.
