Insta360 Digital cameras Announcement
Camera company Insta360 today announced Insta360 GO 3 – a tiny action camera that builds upon its predecessor GO 2’s ultra-portability and comes with an Action Pod having a flip touchscreen.
The Insta360 GO 3 weighs 35g and has an aperture of F2.2 and a focal length of 11.24mm. It can capture photos in INSP and DNG formats and record videos in MP4. You can take pictures with the Insta360 GO 3 in 2,560×2,560 (1:1), 1,440×2,560 (9:16), 2,560×1,440 (16:9), and 2,936×1,088-pixel (2.7:1) resolutions. Videos can be recorded in 1080p, 1,440p, and 2.7K resolutions at 24, 25, 30, and 50 FPS (2.7K doesn’t support 50 FPS).
Insta360 GO 3
The Insta360 GO 3 has three video recording modes – Pre-Recording, Loop Recording, and Timed Capture. The Timed Capture mode is an interesting one. It allows you to schedule the GO 3 to power on and start recording at a specific time, so you don’t have to wake up from your deep slumber early in the morning to capture the sunrise timelapse.
There’s also a FreeFrame mode that lets you modify the aspect ratio of your footage after shooting, allowing you to record one video for uploading as an Instagram Reel in a 9:16 aspect ratio or a YouTube video in a 16:9 aspect ratio.
With the Insta360 GO 3, you can also record 120 FPS slow-motion videos in 1080p resolution.
The Insta360 GO 3 has a 6-axis gyroscope and comes equipped with FlowState Stabilization and 360 Horizon Lock to shoot videos without tilting or distortion, even in action-packed scenarios. The camera also features dual microphones to record footage with crisp audio.
The Action Pod, which features a 2.2″ flip touchscreen and weighs 96.3g, connects with the Insta360 GO 3 over Bluetooth for real-time remote control and live preview. The GO 3 can also be controlled through voice commands for a hands-free operation.
The Action Pod is IPX4 rated and packs a 1,270 mAh battery that draws power through a USB-C port and charges up to 100% in 65 minutes. The GO 3, on the other hand, is IPX8 rated and comes with a 310 mAh cell that takes 35 minutes for a full charge. The GO 3 is advertised to have a run-time of 45 minutes, which increases to 170 minutes when paired with the Action Pod.
The Insta360 GO 3 is compatible with Android and iOS devices. You can check the complete list of compatible devices on Insta360’s website.
The GO 3 is offered in a single white color, and its retail package comes with a Magnet Pendant, Easy Clip, Pivot Stand, and Lens Guard. Optional accessories include a Monkey Tail Mount, Mini 2-in-1 Tripod, and Screen Protector. It has three storage options – 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB, priced at $380/€430/INR36,890, $400/€450/INR38,940, and $430/€480/INR42,630, respectively.
The Insta360 GO 3 will go on sale in the US, Europe, and Japan later today through Insta360’s official website and Amazon. You can watch its product video below.
Idea and size is superb. Only if the photo size were 12MP. It's mostly for video. And hopefully the video quality is good enough for most situations
I'm not much of an outdoors person like before. Been mostly a homebody during my late-30s to early-40s. So this device has no use for me. But if I was still in my teens and 20s, this would be such a cool device to own. Arun just talked about it …
I bet this wipes floor with oppo/one olus phones
