Insta360 Go Camera Hits The Market With A Focus On Short Videos

The popular Insta360 is well known for 360-degree outlook cameras. But this time, the company is turning its focus to small action cameras, launching the new – and tiny – Insta 360 Go. I’m pretty sure, this will be the worlds smallest camera wearable just over 18g.

Unlike the Insta 360 model, the Go variant has only one front lens, while the back is magnetic and is used to carry and attach accessories. In addition, it has IPX4 certification, which can handle small splashes, rain, and submersion for up to 10 seconds. The model is designed for hands-free recording and can be attached to any type of clothing or objects, with six-axis gyro stabilization. For this, it has reduced to small size, which helps capture angles and locations.

In photos, the model captures resolution images up to 2560 x 2560 (approx. 6.5 MP), but it mainly focuses on videos, with several supported modes:

  • Default: 15 or 30 seconds, exported at 1080p @ 25FPS
  • Range: 15 or 30 seconds, exported at 1080p @ 25FPS
  • Slow-motion: 15 or 30 seconds, captured at 1600 x 900 @ 100FPS, exported at 1600 x 900 at 30FPS
  • Hyperlapse: Record up to 30 minutes for a final video of up to 5 minutes, exported at 1080p at 30FPS
  • Timelapse: Records up to 8 hours at adjustable intervals for a final video of up to 9 seconds, exported at 1080p at 30FPS

The FlashCut function with a pinch of artificial intelligence selects the best shots and combines them automatically. You can filter the contents by type and quality. And if you really want to get your hands dirty, through the dedicated app there are advanced editing functions, which allow you to crop, manage transitions, playback speed, and colors.

Another interesting function is Hyperlapse. Insta360 GO can capture up to 30 minutes at 6x speed, great to intersperse with the footage of your trips. There is also slow motion at 100 fps, although this is certainly not a record.

Insta360 GO

The Insta 360 Go also has Bluetooth 4.0 BLE for connecting to Android and iOS, 8 GB of internal storage capable of saving up to 200 videos – averaging 20 seconds long – on a single charge. Charging the camera takes an average of 20 minutes while carrying the case takes about 1h.

Insta360 GO is compatible with iPhone 6s and above, iPad (2018), iPad Pro and Android 7.1.1 or higher. The model has a suggested retail price of $ 200 and is available on Insta360.com and B&H Photo and Video. In addition to the camera, the kit also has a carrying case, magnetic pendant, easy clip, stand, and sticky base.
