Who is the GO 3 for?

The GO 3 is definitely for the on-the-go content creator with a flair for action. It has multiple stabilisation modes, the highest of which will stand you in good stead for smooth video even if you're on a skateboard or heading down a mountainside on a bike.

It's So Small

The Action Pod's flip-screen is ideal for talking to the camera and despite its size, it is still easy to see yourself and edit settings. It's hard to imagine the camera getting smaller but it does! Simply pop it out of the pod for your large tic-tac-esq camera designed to make your life easier. 

Serious Stabilisation

The Flowstate Stabilisation seriously takes the cake for the best feature of this little camera. The video footage up the hill is incredibly smooth and it's so professional-looking that it feels as though you might be watching a full camera-crewed Top Gear episode rather than a chap with a tiny camera clipped to the front of his cap. 

Hands-Free Video

The 2.7k video quality is also fantastic. It is such an easy setup where the camera handles all the settings automatically so that all you have to do is turn on, press record and you know that you are going to capture some awesome footage. It even features Voice Control 2.0 so that you can start recording with just a voice command. 

Powered with the Action Pod

On its own, the Insta 360 GO 3 can record up to 45 minutes of footage with one charge but clip it back into the Action Pod and you have up to 173 minutes of run time to play with.

Convinced yet?
