Check out my in-depth review on the new Insta360 Go. This reviewtorial (review, tutorial style. Kind of how I do all my reviews) shows you the setup and operation of the Insta 360 GO. You will also see how the Go app works with AI powered Flashcut. Is this little, I mean.. tiny camera for you?
Its strengths are in the size, amazing stabilization (see my Gopro Hero 7 Black / DJI Osmo Action / Insta360 Go stabilization comparison on my video review). You can put this $199 camera in places you can’t put regular cameras because of its size and unique mounting methods. You also don’t have to sift through hours of footage looking for the shots. The image quality isn’t as clear as the (2X priced and much larger) Gorp, but the shots are very usable. It shoot in a square format and then lets you choose between tall or wide formats later.
Anyway, please check out my video tutorial for examples and a really deep look into the Insta360 GO.
