The Insta360 GO records video, audio, and photos to 8GB of internal storage and exports the content to your phone via a companion iOS/Android app. Standard video is exported in 1080p25 Full HD resolution; meanwhile, you can also choose one-tap time-lapse, hyperlapse, and other video modes. Video is captured with built-in Insta360 FlowState image stabilization, which uses an internal 6-axis gyro to smooth out your recordings. You can export photos in three different aspect ratios, each with a different resolution. In 1:1 aspect ratio, the resolution is 2560 x 2560 and in 16:9 it’s 2560 x 1440.
The free companion iOS/Android app can also be used for various remote functions as well as intuitive auto-editing of your video recordings. The camera comes built into a splash-proof case that lets you shoot in the rain. Also included is a Charge Case, which features an 800mAh battery. Although the camera has a built-in battery, the Charge Case provides an alternative power solution (and much more). Per charge, it lets you capture about 200 clips, each about 18 seconds.
The main feature of the Charge Case is that it’s the way to connect the camera to your phone for auto-transfer of videos and photos. The Charge Case has both Lightning and micro-USB connectors for iOS and Android phones. The camera inserts into the case and the case connects plug-and-play into your phone. Via the micro-USB connector, you can also interface with Mac and Windows computers for file transfer.
The Insta360 GO also offers many creative shooting features such as Barrel Roll. Please see more below.
