Insta360 GO 3S

Insta360 has announced the GO 3S, a thumb-sized camera that retains the GO 3’s form factor while packing in several key upgrades, most notably, the ability to shoot 4K.

Other improvements include a new Interval Video mode for fully automatic hands-free shooting, compatibility with the Apple Find My network to locate GO 3S if it gets lost, native waterproofing to 33ft, and improved accessories.

The camera features a magnetic body that weighs 39g / 1.4oz so you can wear it to shoot first-person POVs completely hands-free, or mount it using a wide array of accessories.

4K & image quality enhancements

The GO 3S can capture 4K unto 30fps, and according to Insta360, it can produce videos that are noticeably sharper, clearer, and crisper. It is powered by an enhanced chip with 50% more CPU computing power and a new wide-angle lens.

  • New MegaView FOV – Less distortion and straighter, cleaner edges. 
  • Dolby Vision-Ready – Greater dynamic range and enhanced details thanks to new HDR technology.
  • Slow Motion Upgrades -Up to 200fps at 1080p or 100fps at 2.7K.

Automatic shooting & AI editing

The new Interval Video mode lets you set how often to shoot and the length of each clip, and then the GO 3S will automatically power on and shoot a series of clips.

Turn on GO 3S’s new Instant App Preview (iOS only) and you’ll get a notification sent to your phone when you finish shooting.

The Auto Edit function in the Insta360 app and let AI combine your clips into one video, on beat to music. 

Hands-free POV

This super lightweight camera makes hands-free POV shooting easy. You can simply wear it on your shirt or hat and forget it’s even there.

You can mount it on a helmet, handlebars, or on your backpack is far easier with a camera this size, and the magnetic body opens up a world of creative mounting options and angles.

The Action Pod is unchanged from GO 3 and acts as an all-in-one housing, remote control, and charger for GO 3S. Whether shooting with the camera inside the Action Pod or mounted separately, you can preview your shots on the 2.2″ flip touchscreen. The magnetic mounting mechanism fits both the camera and Action Pod, so the same accessories can be used.

You can use Insta360’s FlowState Stabilization and Horizon Lock to keep your footage smooth and level.
