It’s cool, compact and lightweight.

We already know that Insta360 does only 360 cameras in the past, but its latest device confirms that the company is taking on the action camera market. Meet the Insta360 Go, being dubbed as the world’s smallest stabilized camera. 

From the images, you can tell how small it is (you can even hide it with your thumb) and at 18.3 grams, it’s basically weightless and can be attached on nearly any surface. Its backside is magnetic so it can easily snap into various accessories that include headbands, chest attachments, and a selfie stick.

The Insta360 Go uses a case for charging which also serves as its storage unit. Just like other Insta360 cameras, you can plug in the camera to any compatible Android or iOS device and use an app to transfer and edit your images and videos. The camera also supports FlowState stabilization, the company’s own stabilization software that allows you to capture shake-free images.

The Go’s accompanying app has a special FlashCut feature that will automatically categorize your clips and create special themed clips that are powered by AI. Other shooting modes on the Insta360 Go include time-lapse and slow-motion.

It is worth noting that the Insta360 Go will only record short 30 second clips, which makes it perfect when sharing it on social media/online. You can technically capture more than an hour of footage, but all of this will be in 30-second intervals. 

At $200, the Insta360 Go is a decent action camera even if it doesn’t really compare to a GoPro. Still, there’s a good chance that it will find its audience, especially fans of its 360 cameras.
