Introducing Insta360’s Newest Action Cam with a Wireless Display
Insta360’s Go 2 action cam, known for its compact size and versatility, is about to be overshadowed by its successor, the Go 3, which brings exciting new features. The Go 3 introduces a larger rectangular detachable body called the “Action Pod,” giving it a more conventional action cam appearance. This innovative design not only offers an extended battery life (more details to follow), but the Action Pod also doubles as a 2.2-inch flip touchscreen, reducing the need to use your phone frequently. Essentially, the Go 3 combines the functionality of a 2-in-1 action cam and a wireless display.
The camera itself in the Go 3 boasts significant upgrades. Video resolution has been enhanced from 1440p to 2.7k (2,720 x 1,536), resulting in improved performance of Insta360’s renowned “FlowState” video stabilization. Audio quality has been enhanced with the addition of a second microphone, addressing a previous drawback. The camera is also now certified as waterproof up to 5 meters, compared to the previous limit of 4 meters. However, please note that the “Action Pod” is only water-resistant to an IPX4 rating, so avoid submerging that part underwater.
The Go 3’s battery life has been extended from 30 minutes to 45 minutes (at 1080p@30fps). When mounted onto the “Action Pod,” the battery life increases to up to 170 minutes. Furthermore, Insta360 has made improvements in heat dissipation design, removing the previous 30-minute cap on video length. Now, the only limitations are battery life and data storage. To accommodate these improvements, the Go 3 is available in a new 128GB variant, although options with 64GB or 32GB are still available to suit different budgets.
In addition to the familiar timelapse, “TimeShift” (Insta360’s version of hyperlapse), and slow-motion (up to 4x) features, the Go 3 introduces three new video modes: pre-recording, loop recording, and timed capture. Timed capture, in particular, is useful for setting up automated capturing, such as capturing a sunrise without the need to manually activate the camera.
Similar to its predecessor, the Go 3 includes various accessories for different mounting methods. It includes a magnet pendant for first-person point-of-view shots from chest level, but some users may prefer the included clip mount for eye-level shots with a hat. The package also contains a pivot stand with a reusable sticky base that can be detached if you prefer a 1/4-inch mount. Additional accessories, like a quick release mount for action sports or a monkey tail mount for versatile captures, are available for purchase. Dog owners may even consider the “Fetch Stick” to capture fun close-ups of their pets.
The Insta360 Go 3 is now available for purchase through the official online store or Amazon. The pricing for the different storage capacities is as follows: $379.99 for the 32GB model, $399.99 for the 64GB model, and $429.99 for the 128GB model.
