Originally developed for the iPhone, the Insta360 One is now compatible with a number of recent Android smartphones too (full info on the website, as above). Described as ‘a camera crew in your hand’, the Insta360 One is actually a fully functional camera that can be used on its own and controlled via Bluetooth, with a rechargeable battery that lets it shoot continuously for around 70 minutes. But, for maximum control, you can attach it to your smartphone, using the screen as your viewfinder, and controlling the camera’s many features with the Insta360 app.
This kit also includes a small tripod, selfie-stick, and even a special ‘bullet-time’ grip that allows you to shoot in slow-motion through 360 degrees. The company sells other accessories too, such as a waterproof mount for surfboards, and a chest-strap for bungie-jumping and other extreme sports.
