In brief: Insta360 has announced a tiny new action camera that is as portable as it is potent. The Insta360 GO 3 is a two-part design comprised of the camera module itself and a magnetic docking pod of sorts. The camera component is smaller than the average human thumb and weighs a mere 35 grams, or about 1.2 ounces.
The Action Pod, meanwhile, features a flippable 2.2-inch touchscreen to control the camera remotely via Bluetooth and doubles as a battery pack to extend shooting time.
The camera module carries an IPX8 rating while the Pod is IPX4 water resistant. Other amenities include a replaceable lens guard for added damage protection and software features like FlowState Stabilization and 360 Horizon Lock to improve captured footage. Another handy feature called Timed Capture allows you to schedule recordings ahead of time. For example, you could set the unit up to capture a timelapse of a sunrise without having to wake up early.
With FreeFrame mode, users can modify the aspect ratio of their footage after shooting for added versatility. AI-powered editing can help curate your best clips without having to manually comb through all of your recorded video.
The bundle additionally comes with a set of magnetic accessories including a pendant that can be worn around your neck, a clip for hats, and a pivot stand with a reusable sticky mount that also has a 1/4-inch mounting point for tripods.
Performance-wise, the new Insta360 GO 3 can shoot up to 2.7K footage for up to 45 minutes using its integrated 310 mAh battery (factoring in the charging pod pushes total record time up to 170 minutes). The camera also packs dual microphones and the option for voice-based, hands-free operation.
The Insta360 GO 3 is available from today in three storage options: 32 GB, 64 GB and 128 GB, priced at $379.99, $399.99, and $429.99, respectively. Pricing is roughly on par with other major players in the action camera market like GoPro and DJI. You can pick one up directly from Insta360 or one of several resellers including Amazon.
