About the Insta360 Go 3
The Insta360 GO 3 (hereafter: GO 3) is a compact camera that weighs only 35 grams and is smaller than the human thumb. Inheriting the portability of the previous model, the functionality has been further enhanced and upgraded to a multi-functional camera.
The unique magnetic body of the camera makes it easy to mount anywhere, opening up the possibilities for creative angles and unique shots. The new Action Pod is the ultimate photography tool, transforming GO 3 into a more versatile and powerful camera.
With the flip touchscreen, you can remotely control the camera and preview the photos that were taken, even when GO 3 is mounted in hard-to-reach places. If the battery runs out, GO 3 can be attached to the pod for up to 170 minutes of continuous shooting. This will expand the possibilities of content creation with high flexibility, such as shooting from an immersive first-person perspective, shooting from the pet’s perspective, and developing new angles.
GO 3 has a quick capture function that allows you to easily start shooting by simply pressing the front of the camera body, making it easy to capture the moment. Whether you’re playing with your kids or sprinting down the trail, GO 3 never gets in the way of your experience. You can shoot vividly in 2.7K from any viewpoint, and it is said that it is ideal for sharing on SNS.
The GO 3 comes with a set of accessories to bring out your camera’s creativity:
Magnetic Pendant: A circular magnet hangs from your neck and fits under your clothing, allowing you to wear GO 3 on your chest over your clothing for first-person shots
Easy Clip: An accessory designed for hats that fits GO 3 snugly over your head for hands-free, high-angle shots
Pivot Stand: Adhesive mount with adjustable, reusable design for easy shooting at tricky angles. Completely redesigned stand also features a 1/4″ mounting point for selfie sticks and tripods when unscrewed
A product of innovation, the new Action Pod combines GO 3’s housing, remote control and charging functionality all in one.
A convenient 2.2-inch flip-up touchscreen allows the Action Pod to connect to GO 3 via Bluetooth for real-time remote control and live preview. Users can easily frame shots from difficult angles, from cat collars to children’s bicycles. In addition, the action pod and camera are compatible with the same magnetic mount, which saves setup time and achieves high versatility. And GO 3 can be charged by putting it in the action pod, making it easy to solve the battery shortage.
The GO 3 pod is IPX4 water resistant, and the camera body is IPX8 water resistant to 5m. The Insta360 product features FlowState image stabilization and 360° horizontal maintenance are also installed, realizing smooth images even in scenes with a lot of action and removing unnecessary tilt and distortion. A replaceable lens protection filter is also included as standard.
GO 3 has improved the problems of the GO series and upgraded as a new generation machine. Software optimizations and resolution upgrades deliver crisp, vivid 2.7K video. With no clip length limit, the 310mAh high-capacity battery allows users to keep shooting for up to 45 minutes, which is 1.5 times longer than the previous generation.
Equipped with an additional mic compared to its predecessors, GO 3’s dual mics deliver clearer, crisper audio than its predecessor. New shooting modes such as pre-recording, loop recording, and reserved recording are also added. With Scheduled Recording, you can power on GO 3 and schedule it to start recording at a specific time.
Like all Insta360 cameras, GO 3 is more than just a camera, it is supported by Insta360’s powerful apps and editing ecosystem to simplify users’ filmmaking workflows.
By using FreeFrame mode shooting, you can change the aspect ratio of the footage, so users can edit the same clip as a 9:16 ratio Instagram reel as a 16:9 ratio YouTube video. While other action cameras require you to select an aspect ratio before shooting, GO 3 can save all content you share in any aspect ratio.
Insta360’s AI-powered editing feature automatically collects the best shots and compiles them into custom reels. The app’s AI capabilities and user-friendly interface allow users to focus on their creative pursuits while letting technology do the heavy lifting.
There are also plenty of modes for creating creative content. GO 3 features time-shifting for hyperlapse, AI-powered PureShot HDR for enhanced dynamic range photography, slow-motion up to 120fps, and time-lapse photography.
