The new Insta360 GO is a micro sized magnetic stabilized camera that uses AI tech to edit your footage for you. The camera can shoot video or stills in four modes and is activated by a single button on the back of the body. One tap when the GO is turned off will start recording video for 30 seconds, a single tap when the camera is on Standby mode will take a photo, a double tap will turn on Hyperlapse mode, and a triple tap will record 120FPS slow-mo video. Although the GO button is located on the back of the camera, it can also be activated by applying pressure to the front of the camera. A series of flashing lights and vibrations help you know what mode you are in without connecting the GO to your phone. The camera is about the shape and size of a fun-sized candy bar, features a magnetic strip for easier mounting, and comes with a variety of mounting accessories for easier footage capture in a variety of situations.

If trusting the whims of machine learning isn’t your style, you can still manually edit footage together within the app. The Insta360 GO is available starting today from the company’s website for $200.
